Midland, Michigan - Dow Corning used a Valentine's Day confectionery hook to promote its silicone antifoaming agents for food and beverage production.
Dow cites research projecting the global market for confectionery as reaching US $208.5 billion by 2017, up from $141 billion in 2007.
â€œFoaming issues in food and beverage processing applications can create spillovers that negatively impact efficiency, productivity and cost,â€ said Don Buchalski, global marketing manager for Dow Corning's Xiameter brand, which offers standard silicone materials online. â€œSilicone antifoams destabilise and collapse bubbles, allowing confectioners to avoid having to stop production to clean up spills,â€ he continued.
Xiameter agents may be used as pure liquids, powders or in compounds or emulsions. They are claimed to be more effective than organic antifoaming agents.
