Levelling agents / Defoamers / Surfactants

The products included here - depending on the formula or on the chemical nature - can act as levelling agents, defoamers or surfactants.
They are designed to solve problems regarding excessive foaming or issues caused by water repellence or improper levelling of the glaze.

TU

TU 44 is the antifoaming agent par excellence.
It easily solves problems related to the presence of bubbles, both in low viscosity glazes or silkscreen printing.
The product can be also used as a levelling agent and it can be applied - both with spray or disc application - directly in the glazing line.
TU 44 is easily dispersible and it is specifically designed for watery systems.
It can also be used in industrial water purifiers.

TU 65 is a powerful fluidifying agent.
It also has an efficient levelling action for all those glazes that may show specific issues as “deep holes” or “frames”.
The product lowers the glaze’s viscosity so that the glaze can be used in high-density applications.
It is suitable for either disc, spray, bell or waterfall systems.

An antifoaming and levelling agent for glazed surfaces. It is easily dispersible and specifically designed for watery systems.
TU 87 can also be used as antifoaming agent for silk-screen printings.

An antifoaming and levelling agent for glazed surfaces.
It is easily dispersible and specifically designed for watery systems.
TU 87/ US can also be used as antifoaming agent for silk-screen printings.
It easily removes the “deep holes” defects.

A levelling agent for glazed ceramic surfaces.
TU 99 can act in many conditions as an antifoaming agent.
It can also be used for silkscreen printing to lubricate and discharge the alveolus.

DIGICER TU

The product is a wetting and leveling agent for glazes applied in inkjet decorations.
The hydrophobic characteristics of solvent-based inks usually do not permit a correct levelling of the final protective glazes: 
this product completely removes and eliminates the glaze’s hydro-repellent effect on the decoration.

Just like DIGICER TU 203, the product has leveling proprieties and works as a surfactant for glazes applied on inkjet decorations.
DIGICER TU 218 simultaneously helps to decrease the glaze' and engobes’ surface tension without modifying the cohesion.
A product suitable both for glazes and grits.
 

Leveling agents for glazes applied on inkjet decorations.
The products are nevertheless able to lower the superficial tension of glazes and engobes without modifying the cohesion:
for this reason they can also be integrated into glazes and engobes which are not involved in the inkjet decoration process.
Products suitable both for glazes and grits.

KG9033

KG 9033 is a leveling agent for glazed ceramic surfaces.
It is especially suitable for bell and waterfall systems but it can be also applied with disc technology.
It has been specifically designed for watery system: it is easily dispersible and is distinguished by a high and durable efficiency.
KG 9033 is a high-performance product (particularly when it is used in suspension of grits and Granicer) that can be added directly to the glaze during the application stage.
It can also provide a lubricanting effect during the operation of moving machines.

KS1120

KS 1120 is a surfactant and leveling agent for glazes applied on solvent-based inkjet decorations.
