Ubifoam 170

Ubifoam 170 is a self-emulsifying defoamer based on mineral oil, for various coating systems, as well as pigment concentrates. Actively prevents the formation of bubbles during paint application and also effectively prevents air entrapment during production operations (mixing, pumping). Highly compatible with water dispersion systems. Does not contain silicones.

Scope of application

  • In aqueous interior paints;
  • In aqueous exterior paints;
  • Highly filled and highly pigmented watercolors;
  • In aqueous systems based on polyvinyl acetate, polyacrylic and styrene/acrylic homopolymer or copolymer;
  • In plasters, in primers, in sealants.


  • Compatible with most mineral fillers, pigments and aqueous dispersions;
  • It has a high degree of antifoam ability;
  • Thanks to the auxiliary surfactant system, a high degree of emulsification of the product is achieved, which facilitates the easy application of paints and varnishes to the system, including systems with low dry matter content;
  • Improves storage stability of highly pigmented emulsion paints;
  • Does not distort the appearance of the surface;
  • Storage stability is high.


Defoamer Ubifoam 170 can be added at the rate of 0.1-0.5% of the total mass of the watercolor.


It is recommended to introduce the defoamer Ubifoam 170 in two stages: the first part before the filler and pigments are introduced into the system, the second part at the final stage of paint production

Compatibility with other additives

Defoamer Ubifoam 170 is compatible with most of the various additives used in watercolors.


The composition of the paint and the dosage of the additive should be determined by laboratory tests.


Additive can be supplied in bulk. Additionally, it is possible to supply in the following ways:
In 26 kg drum;
In 200 kg plastic barrel;
In 900 kg IBC tank.

Storage and expiration date

It should be stored at temperatures between +1°С and +30°С. There may be slight decomposition during long-term storage, which does not affect the quality of the defoamer. To eliminate this, simply mix the defoamer. The expiration date is 12 months from the date of production in the original closed packaging under the specified storage conditions.

Security precautions

When applying the defoamer Ubifoam 170, it is necessary to use protective clothing, gloves, glasses and masks and comply with industrial safety rules. Direct contact with eyes and skin should be avoided during storage and use. In case of swallowing, seek medical help immediately. It should be kept away from food.
