Make application more efficient.

Where to use:

In any tank mix.

When to use:

During mixing and spraying.

How to use:

DEFOAMING:
Squirt directly onto foam that has already formed. Stop agitation then add enough Defoamer to get rid of foam.

ANTIFOAMING:
Add Defoamer after the first ingredient. Do not add to dry tank or before the addition of water. Some tank mix partners create more foam than others. For ingredients that cause a lot of foam to form and it may require a use rate up to 2 oz. per 100 gallons to adequately control foam. Other factors such as temperature and amount of agitation will increase or decrease the amount of control needed.
