    Foam on plastic lens polisher compound

    We have a central unit where the polisher compound (for plastic lenses) is collected, filtered, chilled and send back to polishers.
    There are moments in which foam is build on polishers and the central tank. Adding a gallon of new polisher will help. Would like to know what cause the foam and if there is a additive that can be used to reduce the foam.

    Any optical supply company that sells surfacing and polishing items will have a bottle of antifoam for sale. A few drops will do the trick.
