Agent

The main component of mineral oil paint defoamer Mozambique is mineral oil, or any other oil that is insoluble in the foaming medium, as the carrier, accounting for approximately 50% to 70%. Its specific gravity is the key. Too much will affect its solubility and emulsification, while too little will affect its stability and effectiveness.

There is no unified understanding of the mechanism of defoaming agents. According to the mechanism of defoaming agents proposed by predecessors, there are generally the following types: [4]
General defoaming mechanism
Typical defoaming mechanisms with a broad overview are the Robinson defoaming mechanism and the Ross hypothesis. Among them, Robinson mechanism is the basis of Ross hypothesis, which mainly emphasizes the liquid drainage of defoamer destroying foam and Marangoni effect to realize defoaming; The Ross hypothesis is based on the fact that the defoamer particles are insoluble droplets, while some defoamers actually produce defoaming effects in a dissolved state, so the defoaming mechanism of the Ross hypothesis is not comprehensive

Unstable

Inorganic hydrophobic particles account for about 10% of the total, and they are evenly dispersed in mineral oil, which is one of the key factors because their hydrophobic strength determines the effectiveness of defoaming performance, which can help paint defoamer Mozambique factors reach the surface of the liquid film more easily, allowing the defoaming agent to quickly blend with the liquid film to increase defoaming speed.
