Global Defoaming Coating Additives Market

When talking about inks, paints, building materials, and adhesives, among other industrial process liquids, defoaming coating additives is used to describe the chemical additives that reduce or eliminate foam formation. To prevent pinholes from forming in resins, lacquers, and paints, defoaming coating additives such as basic organic chemical components or low surface tension liquids are applied. Absorption of air during handling and production of industrial liquid can cause larger bubble marks to reflow and produce foam in fluid, which in turn leads to sub-optimal filling of production vessels, which in turn causes issues in the filling line.

Defoamer and antifoam agents are often used interchangeably; both serve the same purpose. The construction industry's heavy reliance on emulsion paints and coatings, which are in turn made possible by the widespread use of defoaming coating additives, is anticipated to be a major growth factor. Its market is predicted to grow as a result of rising demand from the wood and furniture sectors, as these additives are widely utilised in the production of wood paints and primers.

Rapid urbanisation is a key driver driving the expansion of the defoaming coating additive market, as it is increasing demand from the building and construction sector. Adhesives, paper coating applications, and packaging all stand to benefit from the creation of new defoamers that meet food contact laws in the not-too-distant future. Building and construction, as well as other industrial sectors, are increasing in Asia and Pacific, making this region a prime target for manufacturers of defoaming coating additives. However, market expansion has been hampered by a slowdown in global auto production.

By Type

  • Silicone: Defoaming coating additives of silicone type are coating additives that feature poly-siloxanes as their primary active ingredient, making them ideal for use in low-tension coatings. Even though silicone defoamer is more expensive than mineral oil, it is commonly used in the production of high-quality coatings. It does not diminish gloss or colour acceptability in high-gloss systems when combined with pigment concentrates.

  • Polymer: Defoaming coating additives of the polymer type are employed in solvent-borne systems and do not contain silicone.

  • Mineral Oil: Mineral oil accounts for 85% of a defoaming coating additive made from mineral oil, while emulsifiers make up 5% and hydrophobic particles make up 10%. Semi-gloss emulsion paints and emulsion plasters benefit from its use. It can induce surface flaws, hence it's not good for use in high-end aqueous industrial coatings.

  • Vegetable Oil: Vegetable oil-based defoaming coating additives have a broader range of potential uses than silicones do, and can be used for the preparation of a variety of foods and drinks, as well as fruits, vegetables, soups, and animal byproducts. Long-term antifoaming performance is enhanced in comparison to competing products thanks to the unique combination of its components.

  • Water-Based: Due to exceptional features of these polymers, such as low VOC emissions, cost-effectiveness, and simple recyclability, water-based defoaming coating additives is anticipated to dominate the global defoaming coating additives market over the forecast period.

By Function:

  • Foam Suppressing: Foaming is a common problem in many liquid systems that can be difficult to eliminate. Surfactants, proteins, carbohydrates, starches, fatty acids, and particulate matter are all examples of raw material components and pollutants that can produce a stable foam in water. Therefore, defoaming coating additives are used in many contexts to forestall foam issues by suppressing it and keep production lines operating smoothly.

  • Foam Breaking: Defoamers, also known as foam breakers, are compounds that are sprinkled on top of the foam in an effort to cause the foam to collapse rapidly. Foams present potential challenges in industrial processes. They disrupt container-filling processes and can damage surface coatings. Foams can be prevented using any number of different chemical formulas. Defoamers hasten the process while also bursting the tiny bubbles. It is common knowledge that a defoamer has surface-active capabilities and is insoluble in the foaming medium.

  • Deareating: Most water-based solutions can benefit from adding deaerators to combat foaming in the solution or on the coated surface during application. Water-based paints, glues, adhesives, spray coatings, and a high gloss system are all viable options.
