  • Dosage

    Borchi® Burst DFS 600 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.
