Dow Corning Corp. has launched Xiameter AFE-1530 Antifoam Emulsion, a 30-percent active formulation with antifoaming persistency used in multiple applications. The Xiameter AFE-1530 is a food-grade silicone antifoam emulsion and complies with U.S. FDA regulations and European Community directives. It is accepted for use in kosher and halal foods, according to the company. Dow Corning said it also is approved by the U.S. EPA for use in pesticide formulations.
The product is suitable for use in a wide range of foam control applications, Dow Corning said, including food and beverage processing, chemical processing, agricultural chemicals and wastewater treatment.
