KORASILON® Defoamer

In some industrial processes foam is desired and necessary, but troublesome in many applications and to be avoided at all costs.

Kurt Obermeier GmbH & Co. KG offers a wide range of defoamers from various manufacturers and from proprietary developments.

  • Technical application advice is as part of the package as onsite plant trials.
  • There is also a modern fully-equipped lab for extensive trials.
  • Immediate samplings of potential defoamers enable you to effectively and cost-effectively take control of your foam problem.

Kurt Obermeier GmbH & Co. KG provides customised defoamer solutions for a wide variety of (process) technical issues.

Our range of silicone defoamers is characterised by lower application quantities compared to mineral oil-based defoamers. The most modern silicone defoamers based on organically modified siloxanes exhibit improved compatibility with organic systems.

Our silicone defoamers comprise the following:

Silicone-based defoamers

  • 100 % defoamers
    for use in formulations (e.g. cleaners, adhesives, detergents) as processing aids (distillation processes, process water, wastewater) or for the production of defoamer emulsions
     
  • Defoamer emulsions
    with a wide range of applications, including the areas of food technology, and biotechnology (FDA, Kosher, etc.), as process aids in pharmaceuticals and with special acid or alkali resistance and according to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 (detergents regulation)
     
  • Solvent-based defoamers
     
  • Defoamers based on organically modified siloxanes
    Silicone-containing defoamers, which do not show typical incompatibility to silicone; for use in cooling lubricants, paints and coatings, electroplating and pickling solutions, or other silicone-critical applications.

KORASILON® Fluids

We market polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and organically modified PDMS fluids under the name Baysilone® and KORASILON®. By clicking on the PDF icon, you can obtain product information on individual fluids from the following categories.

Because of their inorganic Si-O chemical bonding, polydimethylsiloxanes are in many ways comparable in their resistance with the chemically inert behaviour of silicate minerals.

PDMS fluids are available in a viscosity range from 0.65 to 30,000,000 mm²/s and due to its variety of applications it is impossible to imagine our modern production without them.

KORASILON® Oil emulsions

Various problems can be experienced in the use of silicone oils, for example when a thin film of particularly high-viscosity silicone oils should be applied. For industrial hygiene and/or safety reasons, dilution with solvents can be excluded under certain circumstances. In these cases the active agent can be applied in emulsion form.

Silicone oil emulsions can be freely mixed with water and in many cases offer advantages in the application and processing. We not only offer you excellent already existing products in this field, but also our experience in application technology and production to find the optimal solution to your problem.

Oil emulsions – overview

Among others, silicone oil emulsions are used as:

Release agents

  • Rubber and plastics industry
  • Pressure die casting, precision casting
  • Food packaging

Lubricating agents

  • Gasket profiles (building/automotive industry)
  • Web offset printing (printing industry)
  • Rubber and plastics industry

Lubricants

  • As a base or additive

Hydrophobing

  • Glass or mineral wool
  • Textiles, leather

Impregnation

  • Masonry protection agent (refer to KORATECT® silicone masonry protection)

Textile finishing

  • Hydrophobic or hydrophilic Plasticiser an finishing agent, yarn lubricating agents

Polishes and care products

  • Leather, painted surfaces, wood surfaces

KORASILON® Pastes

Besides the standard polydimethylsiloxane-based pastes, we also offer pastes based on organically modified siloxanes with organic or inorganic fillers.
Organically modified siloxane pastes are characterised by improved compatibility on surfaces, e.g. better recoatability, bonding, etc.
 
As opposed to silicone oils, pastes offer higher stability and adhesion to surfaces even in high temperature ranges.

Applications are for example

KORASILON® Release agents

Release agents are still indispensable aids with among others the following uses:

  • Mould release agents
  • Lubricating agents
  • Lubricants and
  • Installation aids

Our wide range of silicone-containing / silicone-free, water-based / solvent-based and hardening / non-hardening release agents allows us to find the optimal solution for every separation problem. Our KORASILON® Release agents are easy and economical to apply and are characterised by rapid and sustained release effect without residues.

Following is a brief overview of our most important release agents. Depending on requirements, product variations or customer specific developments are possible in order to obtain the optimal solution to your separation problem.

KORATECT® Silicone masonry protection

Moisture is the main cause of almost all damage to mineral building materials.

Our KORATECT® Masonry protection products provide hydrophobic protection to various substrates from and significantly reduce water absorption and the absorption of pollutants dissolved in it.

Thus, structural damage such as

  • Corrosion of reinforced steel
  • Efflorescence
  • Salt breakout
  • Frost/de-icing salt damage
  • Algae, moss and mould infestation
     

is significantly reduced.

Through the treatment with KORATECT® Masonry protection agents the diffusion capability/breathability of the building material is retained and the moisture can escape from the inside out. The use of KORATECT® Masonry protection agents provide long-lasting and effective protection against structural damage, without changing the surface texture of the substrates.
