Softeners with Sensory Effects
Hygienic papers for paper handkerchiefs and toilet tissues need to be very soft, yet highly absorbent and strong. This property set can be readily achieved with WACKER additives, whether supplied as proven standard products or in selected formulations. Paper is made softer by adding quaternary ammonium compounds to the bulk. Surface treatment is effected with fatty acid esters, paraffins and silicones.
WACKER offers selected formulations and a proven line of high-quality silicone-based standard products for these areas. Proven products, application methods and tests ensure you strike the right balance in your formulations.
In our laboratories around the world, we are constantly developing new product solutions: one example is innovative softeners that generate completely novel sensory effects and bestow effective water-repellency on the tissue surface. Naturally, our global network of technical centers and specialists will also develop individual products for you and will assist you with specific contract work, preliminary testing and implementation on a production scale.
