especially UV systems.BYK-088
Recommended Levels
0.1-1% additive (as supplied) based upon total formulation.BYK-088
The above recommended levels can be used for orientation. BYK-088 Optimal levels are determined through
a series of laboratory tests.BYK-088
Incorporation and Processing Instructions
To achieve optimal defoaming, the defoamer should be added to the millbase.BYK-088 If it is incorporated at
a later time, sufficient shear forces must be ensured in order to achieve good defoamer distribution and
to prevent crater formation.BYK-088
