DEFOAM-PEJ | 100% active antifoam

Product Information

Defoam-PEJ is a 100% active, specially formulated antifoam composition. It imparts low-foaming characteristics to clear, high actives, scour surfactant concentrate formulations. It will not separate from non-ionic scour surfactant concentrates that contain less than 15% water. The resulting scour concentrate, when diluted to use concentration, will be low foaming over the entire jet scour cycle. Best of all, Defoam-PEJ is free rinsing antifoam and therefore will not cause fabric spotting.

Recipe for making clear transparent low foam detergent concentrate using Defoam-PEJ

Material (qty in kgs)

- Defoam-PEJ : 1.5 – 2

- Butyl Cellusolve : 4 – 5

- Surfactants blend : 83 – 85

- Water : 10.5 - 7


TOTAL : 100


-Take 1.5 – 2 parts of Defoam-PEJ and to it add 4-5 parts of Butyl Cellusolve & stir

for 5 mins.

-To the above blend under stirring add 83 – 85 parts of surfactants blend for 10-15


-Then add 10.5 – 7 parts of water and stir for 5-10 mins.

-Check for clarity, if clear add 1 kg of balance water and if not clear then add 0.5

to 1 kg of Butyl Cellusolve for clarity.

-It has been developed to provide a clear premix in high concentration scouring

surfactant concentrates.

-Typically, these concentrations are based on alcohol ethoxylates such as C10-15

alcohols, with 4-6 (EO).

-The typical use concentration of Defoam-PEJ in the scour surfactant concentrate is


-It can be used in other jet machine processes where an effective clear rinsing antifoam

in required.
