Today, many different types of foam-control agents are employed in UV, water-based, and solvent based coatings. However, selecting the proper one, its use level, and the incorporation method for a specific coating or ink formulation can be quite challenging. In addition to effective foam control, the compatibility of the defoamer in a formulation must be balanced to avoid defects and ensure functionality of the overall coating. Additives play a key role in both the production and application of UV coatings. 

This webinar will introduce BASF’s new silicone-free, zero VOC defoamer, EFKA®️ PB 2770, which effectively manages in-process and application foam without compromising inter-coat adhesion. During the event, we will demonstrate the superior combability and effectiveness of EFKA PB 2770 in various applications.

This webinar is intended for industrial and printing/packaging professionals including:

  • Technical directors
  • Product development / R&D managers
  • Formulators / Bench chemists
