Efka® PB 2001



EFKA® PB 2001 is a silicone-free defoamer for non-aqueous coatings, printing inks, and especially for high viscous coatings based on 2-pack epoxy, unsaturated polyester, and PUR systems. It is a solution of vinyl polymer in organic solvents. EFKA® PB 2001 is used in nitrocellulose lacquers, particularly those applied on curtain coaters, 1- or 2-component acid curing wood coatings, particularly fast drying types applied on curtain coaters, acrylic resin finishes, air drying epoxy resin paints and unsaturated polyester. The formation of craters is thus substantially eliminated. One must differentiate between bubbles which originate from the substrate (wood and paper are typical examples), and bubbles which may be generated in the paint by pumping, rolling, airless spraying or curtain coating.


  • No negative effect on intercoat adhesion
  • Especiallysuited for 2-pack epoxies, unsaturated polyesters and PUR based systems
  • Silicone-free
