Antifoam / Defoamer

NOFOME APEX is a heavy duty antifoam/defoamer designed to control foam in various applications within the wood products industry. It is designed to eliminate and prevent the formation of stable foams which impact the manufacturing process and product quality.

NOFOME APEX is a highly concentrated mineral oil based blend combined with specialty defoamer additives. This combination results in a powerful defoamer that provides fast and effective foam knockdown and extended foam control periods.


  • Fast foam knockdown.
  • Excellent long term stability to control foam for extended periods of time.
  • Highly concentrated resulting in low dosages for effective and economical foam control.
  • Effective over a wide pH range.
  • Non-toxic, non-flammable, environmentally acceptable.


NOFOME APEX is designed to control foam in a wide variety of applications typically found in the wood products industry. This includes wood conditioning vats and wet electrostatic precipitators, and works at the temperatures encountered in these units.

To determine the appropriate defoamer for your application, Guardian Chemicals can arrange to perform on-site or in-house laboratory testing of our defoamer products on your process water using a specially designed bench test unit.
