Customised formulations with defined froth characteristics to achieve superior flotation performance (e.g. recovery increase by up to 10%) at reduced dose rates and costs.
Benefits are obtained by maximizing frother performance across the range of properties that influence flotation performance such as bubble size, bubble coalescence, induction time and froth stability, which a single chemical is not able to do.
Safety and handling aspects are carefully considered during frother formulation:
All BASF-formulated frother products are classified (GHS) as a Category 4 flammable liquid with a flash point between 60°C and 150°C
This reduces the handling efforts that are prevalent with more flammable alternatives
We also strive to ensure that toxicity and ecotoxicity values are as low as possible
