Low foaming agent

Low foaming Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Low Foaming Agent: low foaming agents are, like foaming agents, ingredients that are added to a formulation to affect the foaming properties of the product. 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. This makes them ideal for both home care and I&I care cleaning products, where cleaning capabilities are more important than foam forming properties. Examples include products like Isooctyl Glucoside60, Hexyl Glycoside75 and Dipropionate 2EI40.
