SAG* 1599 Antifoam Compound

100% actives, high-performance silicone antifoam compound for high-electrolyte formulations


SAG 1599 antifoam is an excellent candidate to consider for agricultural formulations containing high amounts of AMS/APG (ammonium sulfate/alkylated polyglucosides) or similar high-salt formulations. Compared to most traditional silicone antifoams on the market, SAG 1599 antifoam typically shows superior foam control when used in applications such as water conditioners and high-electrolyte fertilizers - with no separation issues. This can be a key potential benefit, allowing for long-term stability in high-electrolyte, high-salt products, whether in concentrated or diluted form.


More About SAG* 1599 Antifoam Compound

Most other silicone-based foam-control agents are prone to separation and must be added in much larger concentrations, some as high as 1000 ppm (parts per million). But SAG 1599 antifoam may be added in as little as 50 to 150 ppm and still remain stable - with little or no loss of foam control - while remaining easy to use and control, with minimal cleanup. 

The long-term performance of SAG 1599 antifoam mixed with AMS/APG products can be seen in Figure 2.
