Chemical Products

If you require high-quality chemical products, including antifoams and defoamers, AMS can provide you with the best solutions available. Depending on your specific needs, we can help you find the ideal product from our extensive selection. Here we’ll provide an overview of our products and discuss how AMS can get you the chemical products you need.

Antifoams & Defoamers

One common challenge seen with many fluid containment systems is foam control. Pure liquids don’t develop foam, but any gases or contaminants added to them could enable foam and bubbles to form, which affects the system’s efficiency. To help combat foam and prevent its formation, both antifoams and defoamers are available. However, it’s important to consider the specific application before choosing either an antifoam or defoamer product.

At AMS, we can help you meet your unique application requirements with one or more of our antifoams or defoamers, including:

  • Silicone Antifoams
  • Non-Silicone Defoamers
  • Powdered Defoamers

Colloidal Silica

Colloids consist of stable suspensions of microscopic molecules or particles distributed throughout another substance referred to as a dispersion medium. They’re different from other types of suspensions because of their even distribution and the fact that they neither settle nor separate. Colloids can be a combination of any type of liquid, gaseous, or solid colloids and dispersion media.

At Applied Material Solutions, we use a proprietary manufacturing process to produce colloidal silica that features uniform distribution, which leads to minimal off-size contaminants and particles. Colloidal silica is used across a wide range of applications and industries, including everything from pulp and paper to refractory materials and fabrics.

Hydrophobic Silica

Hydrophobic silicas feature unique functional qualities and beneficial properties that make them suitable for many applications. For instance, many greases, adhesives, sealants, and processing aids like defoamers and antifoams use hydrophobic silica. This substance functions as an anti-caking material that helps prevent hardening or caking in powders. It ultimately helps control moisture to maintain the separation of particles and prepare them for free-flowing use or distribution.

You can read through our brochure to find out more about the many advantages and applications of hydrophobic silica.

Silicone Emulsions

Silicone emulsions are heat-stable and non-toxic products that develop when silicone oil disperses within a liquid with a surfactant added. Applications that benefit from silicone emulsions’ inherent physical properties tend to use this product. A wide range of silicone emulsions are available, providing a variety of active levels, pH options, and physical properties that allow for the modification of the material based on your specific needs.

The aerospace, automotive, food processing, construction, and many other industries use silicone emulsions for a variety of applications. Specific applications include personal care, textiles, graphics and printmaking, and household cleaners.

Corn Oil Demulsifiers

Corn oil demulsifiers help with oil release throughout the mechanical extraction process, producing considerably higher corn oil yield, which translates into higher profits. Corn oil demulsifiers can contribute to reduced system downtime, feed quality, and corn oil quality. If you would like to find out more about how corn oil demulsifiers work, check out our brochure or watch this short video:

Toll Manufacturing

Toll manufacturing, also known as toll processing, is a type of production outsourcing that involves two different companies. One company, the source company, is responsible for supplying semi-finished products or raw materials to another company that serves as the toll manufacturer. The toll manufacturer provides the necessary manufacturing services to convert unfinished and raw materials and goods into complete products for a specific fee, or toll.
