Foaming & Foam Control

Foaming & Foam Control Agents 

Description of Foaming & Foam Control Agents: this group of product functions includes everything related to foam. Where foaming agents increase the amount and improve the quality of the foam formed, low foaming agents mainly boast excellent detergent properties and have little impact on the quantity of foam. On the other side of the spectrum there are defoamers, which eliminate foam, and anti-foaming agents, which completely prevent the formation of foam.  

Foaming and foam control agents remain important in many products and production processes, particularly for cleaning and personal care products. IngreCore has a wide range of surfactants, including many great foaming agents and also silicone oil-based foam control agents.
