Here is a more comprehensive list of our markets and how we serve each market.

If you bring us a need beyond our existing scope of silicone product offerings, we will listen and assist you.  If it is a silicone product, we can furnish it for you.

  • Agricultural

    This is a specialized market, and individual applications must be evaluated prior to making recommendations.  Please contact us via telephone or e-mail to discuss specific parameters and requirements so that we can jointly determine the product best suited to your application.

  • 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

    This market covers a wide range of applications and processes, and many of our products, listed and unlisted, can be utilized. Please contact us via telephone or e-mail to discuss specific parameters and requirements so that we can jointly determine the product best suited to your application.

  • Food Processing

    From potato processing to pickle processing, our F.D.A.-compliant and/or Kosher-Pareve defoamers eliminate foaming problems.
  • HI&I (Household Industrial & Institutional)

    This market covers a wide range of applications and processes, and many of our products, listed and unlisted, can be utilized. Please contact us via telephone or e-mail to discuss specific parameters and requirements so that we can jointly determine the product best suited to your application.

  • Medical

    Our product offerings provide 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

    General-purpose and high-temperature sealants are available in sixteen standard colors.

  • 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.

  • 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.
