  • Features

    • Excellent defoamer
    • Effective over a wide range of pH values
    • Successful at low concentrations
    • Performs well over a wide range of temperatures
    • Helps with process productivity

  • Applications

    • Low to high PVC systems
    • Some low gloss paints, paper coatings, and plasters

  • Dosage

    Borchi® Burst DFM 100 is usually added as received. It can be added at any time during production. In most cases the addition should be split between pigment grind and the let-down. A typical addition level would be between 0.1% and 0.5% in total depending on the severity of the foam problem. The optimum quantity and points of addition are determined by laboratory trials.

  • Storage

    Store in closed containers. Avoid extremes of temperature, keep between 5°C and 30°C. Avoid freezing and do not store in direct sunlight. Product has a shelf life of 12 months, however during this time period some phasing may occur. Remixing will ensure the product is suitable for use.
