What is the relationship between grease defoamer and surfactant?

Defoamer is a surfactant? Hey, this question is asked very technical content. In fact, many workers who first used defoamer will have thought about this question, since defoamer is a processing aid, so it is not a surfactant?

In fact, surfactants have many roles, and different HLB values have different roles. When the HLB value of a surfactant reaches 1-3, it has the function of defoaming, regardless of the fact that it is limited to a certain field but not all fields, so many people mistakenly think that surfactants are defoamers, but in fact, they are not, and they are different kinds of products.

Difference between defoamer and surfactant.

1. Different ways of defoaming each.

2. Defoamer can inhibit foam while surfactant cannot.

3. Defoamers are chemically stable while surfactants are just the opposite.

4. The main role of defoamer is to defoam, while the role of surfactant is more.

5. Surfactants have many side effects, while defoamers have no side effects except for a few special defoamers.

Characteristics of surfactants.

Characteristics of surfactants: There are many ways to classify surfactants and many roles, of which the seven roles are: wetting, micellization and solubilization, emulsification, foaming, suspension, disinfection and sterilization, and scale removal.

Characteristics of oil and grease defoamer.

Grease defoamer is composed of polysiloxane and polyether, emulsifier, dispersant and stabilizer. Grease defoamer as an excellent defoamer, remove the foam inhibition performance is outstanding, especially valuable in the lower concentration can maintain a good anti-foaming effect and other characteristics in one, and therefore widely used.

Application of special nonionic surfactants in concentrated detergents

In concentrated detergent formulations, the technical challenges of formulation stability are often faced due to the gel compartment of most nonionic surfactants and the limited solubility of anionic surfactants. By exploring two special straight-chain alcohol alkoxylates, EcoSense EP2308 and EP2325, in comparison with AEO-9 and isomeric alcohol ethers in concentrated detergents, it was found that

Multi-Emulsion in cosmetics

Multiple emulsions (W/O/W and O/W/O) are considered to be an ideal cosmetic system that can simultaneously contain multiple active ingredients, is gentle to the skin, and is a dispersion system that is both functional and cosmetic. The unique “three-phase, two-membrane” structure of multiple emulsions makes it possible to simultaneously encapsulate active ingredients of different natures

Cosmetic preservatives

In the cosmetic industry, preservatives are vital additives whose primary function is to limit or prevent the proliferation of microorganisms in a product. The effectiveness of these cosmetic preservatives relies on their reaching the specific concentrations required to inhibit microorganisms and interacting directly with microbial cells. In terms of mechanism of action, preservatives can be
