FoamStar A 10

Use

FoamStar A10 represents a novel series of


defoamers based on new defoamer chemistry
developed and patented by Cognis. It is the first new
defoamer chemistry in over 30 years.
FoamStar is a defoaming molecule that defoams
by a different mechanism. Unlike conventional
defoamers (mineral oil or silicone), FoamStar
defoams on a molecular level. It also has wetting
properties not found in other conventional
defoamers.
FoamStar A10 utilizes the FoamStar molecule
compounded in an enhanced mineral-oil system.
FoamStar A10's advantages are:

How to Use FoamStar A10:


In the grind portion of a flat paint formula, use 0.25 0.50 pounds of FoamStar A10 per 100 gallons. In
semi-gloss paint grind, use 0.50 - 1.0 pounds of
FoamStar A10 per 100 gallons. The rest of the
FoamStar A10 addition can be made to the
letdown. FoamStar A10 will be equally effective in
both the letdown and the grind.
