Ivanhoe manufactures a wide range of foam control products for lubricant applications. Lubricants contain many different types of components that are potential causes of foam, and excessive foam can negatively impact the lubricating efficiency and cooling properties of the lubricant.

Ivanhoe Industries’ antifoams are especially effective in metalworking fluids to prevent the negative effects of excessive foam when used as tank-side additives or as part of a concentrate package in synthetic, semi-synthetic, and soluble oil based metalworking fluids.

These antifoams do not have any negative impacts on post finish processes. They do not cause cratering or fish eyes in painting, plating, etc. They also have good compatibility with many coolants and also have good filterability during the metalworking process. All of Ivanhoe’s metalworking antifoams display excellent antifoaming persistence in the face of high or low pH situations and with high temperature applications.
