Chemical Defoamers for All Industries

Effective foam control chemistry for
any industrial system.

Ineffective Foam Control
Can Be Catastrophic

Foam is an inconvenient reality of many industrial processes. Foam not only reduces processing speed and capacity, it can also pose damage risk to other equipment or limit the effectiveness of additive chemistries in process fluids. The problem is, while foam will disappear on its own, you need to be able to dispel it fast.

Fully Customized Defoaming Solutions

Foam is a by-product of many processes and can cause severe equipment malfunction and contamination if not handled effectively. Often you require more than simple commodity chemistries to solve these complex problems. Guardian works with our clients to solve their unique foaming issues by understanding the broader set of systems and problems they’re encountering. And once we’ve created a solution, we provide the application training, emergency response, and regular reviews and evaluations that ensure our customers feel confident in our chemistry. Here are just some of the areas where we can help solve issues and improve performance:

Commercial Buildings



Residential Buildings

Data Centres

Painting and Coatings

Chemical Manufacturing



Building Materials

Machining and Metal Working

Wood Mills and Engineered Wood Products

Food and Beverage Processing

We Find Solutions for Every Industry

We create effective defoaming solutions to suit different processes and industries. Surface foams can be difficult to prevent and break down due to the fluid composition and surface properties. 

Guardian provides a large variety of process defoaming products formulated to rapidly destabilize and break down foams while preventing further foam buildup. Our in-house and in-field testing technologies are available to ensure accurate chemical functions and application rates, and our experts are working consistently to create innovative new solutions capable of more effectively defoaming while using less product.
