BASF Launches DefoamerBASF has launched a defoamer Foamaster® WO 2360, which complies with major food contact regulations for acrylic pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA), paper coating applications and functional packaging.

Excellent Defoaming Efficiency


The new white oil-based defoamer demonstrates excellent and persistent defoaming efficiency, excellent compatibility across acrylic PSA systems and good oil-slick resistance during storage for adhesive formulations. When applied in paper coatings, Foamaster® WO 2360 also exhibits excellent defoaming efficiency coupled by good anti-foaming and fast foam break time.

The versatility of Foamaster® WO 2360 makes it widely applicable for paper coating formulations, barrier coatings, paper and paperboard applications that all require contact with food. This, in turn, removes the need for customers to carry multiple defoamers in its inventory.

Compliant with Food Contact Regulations


The defoamer is compliant with China’s food contact regulation GB 9685-2016 for adhesives and major food contact regulations such as Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Title 21, Food Contact Materials Regulation (EC), Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR) and Swiss Ordinance on Food Contact Materials for packaging.

China’s National Food Safety Standard GB 9685-2016 governs the use of additives in food contact materials and their products. It was introduced by China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC), which came into force in October 2017.
