Foam agent generate gas bubbles within the plastic matrix, which can reduce the density of the final product and provide improved insulation properties. The type of foam agent used can impact the final properties of the foam product, including density, thermal conductivity, and compressive strength. Foam plastics are widely used in various industries, including packaging, construction, and automotive, due to their lightweight and energy-saving properties.
Antifoaming agents are common processing aids in industrial production, which can reduce the surface tension of water, solution, suspension, etc., prevent the formation of foam, or reduce or eliminate the original foam. Antifoaming agents can be applied in various fields, such as pulp&paper, the textile industry, industrial cleaning, adhesive, nutrition industry, fabric care, building materials, water treatment, metal processing, paints&coatings, oilfield industry, and metallurgy.
