Benefits & Advantages
  • Unlike conventional defoamers, TEGO® Antifoam 2460 was specifically developed to avoid premature coagulation.
  • This allows for less cleaning of the reaction vessel and the demonomerization column while the TEGO® Antifoam 2460 does not hinder the coagulation stage.

Applications & Uses

Industrial Additives End Use
Use Level
0.05 - 0.8 wt.%
  • TEGO® Antifoam 2460 is designed for the use as process aid in the water-based polymerization of SBR/ NBR rubber materials.
  • However, for the defoaming of SBR emulsions as used in adhesives and paper coatings, we rather recommend to use the specialized defoamers TEGO® Antifoam 2290 and 2291.
  • TEGO® Antifoam 2460 should be applied as delivered, pre-dilution is not recommended since it does not form stable emulsions without stirring.
  • If a pre-dilution of TEGO® Antifoam 2460 in water is required, however, we recommend to produce the dilution shortly before application by using an inline mixing device.

Since soaps are used in the emulsion step of SBR / NBR rubber manufacturing, a dosage of several thousand ppm (e. g. 0.05 - 0.8 %) of TEGO® Antifoam 2460 is often required.
