Chemical Processing

RefinerySilicones are used within the chemical industry as processing aids. The most common requirement is for an antifoaming agent. 

Whenever liquids are moved, pumped or agitated there is a risk of foam being developed. Large amounts of foam will often slow down the production process, inhibit chemical reactions and impair product performance.

ACC Silicones produce both silicone and non-silicone antifoams.

Applications include

  • Adhesive manufacture
