Production, Product Marketing And Sourcing Of Silicone Products

TayChem Industries, Ltd. is a supplier of silicone-based antifoam agents, release compounds and emulsions, silicone dimethyl fluids, and specialty silicone products. TayChem’s products are used in virtually all major industries. Our silicone emulsion and fluid line of products are used in multiple applications, and our Foam Destroyer™ antifoams/defoamers are used in a variety of applications.

We offer silicone products to a variety of markets, inclusive of, but not limited to the following:

Agriculture

This is a specialized market, and individual applications must be evaluated prior to making recommendations.  The antifoam products listed are included in the E.P.A.’s data base of inert ingredients for use in pesticide formulations.

Automotive

This market includes products for utilization in car polishes, car waxes, tire dressings, vinyl protectants, etc.  Some of the TaySheen products are not restricted to the aforementioned applications, but can also be suitable for use in mold release agents, textile softeners, and curable silicone coatings.

Chemical Processing

TayChem produces silicone anti-foaming and de-foaming agents that are used in chemical processing.

Thread lubricants include room-temperature, kiss-roll lubricants; hot melt lubricants; and in-bath lubricants.  Please give us a call to discuss our TayLube product line.

Fire Safety

Fire safety

Food Processing

From potato processing to pickle processing, our F.D.A.-compliant defoamers eliminate foaming problems {Kosher-Pareve Grades}.

HI&I

This is a specialized market, and individual applications must be evaluated prior to making recommendations.  The antifoam products listed are included in the E.P.A.’s data base of inert ingredients for use in pesticide formulations.

Medical

Product provides gloss, lubrication, abrasion resistance, and release properties to a wide variety of substrates.

Moldmaking (Dimethyl Fluids)

Specific silicone dimethyl fluids, whether used alone or as part of a compounded formula, can be utilized for mold release whether working with rubber, plastics, or metal die castings.

Mold Release

Silicone release agents have excellent release characteristics due to low surface tension of wetting and the low cohesive strength conferred by its methyl groups.  They provide gloss, lubrication, abrasion resistance, and release properties to a wide variety of substrates.

Packaging

Products act as release agents during the manufacture of plastic food packaging, as well as providing gloss, lubrication, abrasion resistance, and release properties to a wide variety of substrates.

Printing Inks

Product line is intended for use in aqueous media and is effective for reducng foam caused by the presence of surfactants.

Rendering

TayChem has a variety of product offerings for the Rendering Industry.  This application includes processing of salvageable chicken and beef parts for use in dog and cat food.  The rendering process involves the use of large, 5,000- to 10,000- gallon pressure cooker type equipment with large augers.  The renderer grinds and refines the product.  During this process, foam develops and reduces the capacity of the “kettle” which interferes with production yields.  Defoamers for this application come in both aqueous (water-formed) and non-aqueous (100%) type products.  Recommendations on individual needs will be made upon request.

Sealants

From potato processing to pickle processing, our F.D.A.-compliant defoamers eliminate foaming problems {Kosher-Pareve Grades}.

Textiles

Dye and carpet requires auxiliary products that form foam.  Air entrapment and surface foam causes carpet flotation and uneven dyeing spillovers.  Entrained air reduces dye flow through cloth during textile pressure dyeing.  Our product offerings act as an antifoam to prevent foam formation or as a defoamer to kill foam after formation.  High-speed, jet-dyeing equipment requires the use of defoamers to prevent manufacturer malfunctions.

Thread lubricants include room-temperature, kiss-roll lubricants; hot melt lubricants; and in-bath lubricants.  Please give us a call to discuss our TayLube product line.

Water Treatment

Defoamers for this application come in silicone-based and non-silicone based products.  Each problem requires an on-site inspection prior to product recommendations.
