Anti Foam

Looking for an anti foam? Anti foams & defoamers are used in numerous industrial and food grade applications for foam control. Siovation manufactures a full line of products ranging from 5% to 100% active, in water-based and non-aqueous forms. Product selection is made on the basis of foaming medium, pH and temperature of the system, and requirements for quick knock-down and/or antifoaming persistence.

Industry Solutions

Siovation opened its doors more than 25 years ago as a distributor of silicone products under the name Taylor Chemical. In order to expand solutions offered to customers, Taylor began to manufacture silicone-based antifoams, defoamers and lubricants for the pulp & paper and textile industries. As the company evolved, its product line expanded to provide process aids and raw material ingredients for a wide variety of industries, including food processing, plastics, agriculture, auto care, chemical processing, personal care and more.

Over the past five years, Siovation has evolved into a highly technical, service-oriented manufacturer of silicone-based materials to deliver targeted benefits to an ever-changing marketplace. Most often, these materials are provided in the form of emulsions, dispersions or blends of polymeric materials. Significant, focused effort has been put into expanding our silicone expertise by hiring knowledgeable personnel and purchasing state-of-the-art manufacturing and laboratory equipment. This enables us to offer our customers a wide range of innovative and effective products and services.

Our Capabilities

Siovation has provided a wide range of conventional and innovative silicone-based products to a variety of industrial, food grade and personal care market segments for over 25 years. No matter the application, our focus has always been, and will always be, on providing the highest level of customer service. Siovation's record for on-time delivery is unparalleled in the industry as is our commitment to quality and continuous improvement.

This is evident, in part, by our ISO 9001:2008 registration and continuous improvement programs. Our commitment to our customers is demonstrated by the significant number of long-term, loyal and satisfied customers that we supply every day. Our company strives to deliver products on time, every time, at the highest levels of quality.

Our operating philosophy is simple. In order to discover the pressing needs of our customers, to develop innovative solutions to solve problems and to provide our products with uncompromising service, we listen, we create and we deliver. This guiding philosophy provides the framework for daily decision-making and employee empowerment.

 

Custom Formulations

The technical staff of Siovation has approximately 125 years of combined experience in product development, applications development and process engineering. Our unique combination of formal education, industrial experience, instrumentation, equipment and engineering expertise combines to provide our customers with a multitude of stock and custom solutions. Below is an outline of our capabilities:

  • Silicone chemistry as it relates to silica hydrophobizing, silicone copolymer synthesis and chemical/physical interactions with various application media, surfaces and systems.
  • Particle engineering and characterization spanning the range of 1 nanometer to 1,000 microns. On the characterization front, we utilize a combination of laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering and optical microscopy to determine the relative size and distribution of particles to establish the structure/property/behavior relationships needed to optimize performance in virtually every application that we encounter.
  • Colloidal stability analysis and optimization, enabled by the use of the Formulation Turbiscan® LAbExpert system. This tool, in addition to fundamental understanding of colloid stability physics, allows us to develop stable, or deliberately unstable, materials for a wide variety of systems. This tool is also often useful in the collaborative process of assessing the suitability of our products for use in customer formulations.
  • Foam system simulation for the purposes of antifoaming material selection and application optimization. In most instances, the optimal antifoaming material is system-specific and therefore application testing and/or simulation are an integral part of our development process. Often a paradoxical balance of system compatibility and incompatibility is needed to achieve foam control without detrimental effects.
