Brands

Degressal® (petrochemical), Pluriol® (petrochemical)

Properties

Our Degressal® SD grades are available in liquid form. They are especially not water diluted products. They are easy to solubilize in aqueous solutions with hydro tropes, glycols, alcohols or other surfactants. Such solubilizers are for example cumene sulphonate, Lutensol® CS 6250 or Emulan® HE 50. Some products in the Degressal® range form clear solutions in water when they are solubilized.

Applications

BTC’s Degressal® SD grades are silicone free foam suppressors for versatile applications. They are in particular a preferred choice for use in applications where the presence of silicone is undesired. Such applications are requested e.g. in emulsion-polymerisation and in pulp & paper. Degressal® SD grades are applied also as a formulation additive for concrete, in chemical processes and in textile applications.
