Ivanhoe offers a wide range of non-ionic surfactants that are often used to manufacture defoaming emulsions. We have a wide range of both low HLB and high HLM emulsifiers that are needed to form stable emulsions. We have a broad knowledge of defoamer regulatory requirements and can assist in selecting the optimum emulsification system for your specific defoamer applications.

Surfactants are often used alone or in combination with other defoaming actives to formulate effective defoaming agents. Ivanhoe manufactures a range of surfactants specifically designed for their defoaming properties. Below is a selection of our defoaming surfactants, and we are able to custom develop surfactants specific for your defoamer formulations.
