LIOSIL® TS 913 E
LIOSIL® TS 913 E is a water based microemulsion of a functional silicone fluid that was developed specially as a softener for the tissue industry. The exact composition of the LIOSIL® TS 913 E is proprietary, however the blend is based completely on INCI listed cosmetic ingredients and LIOSIL® TS 913 E is produced accoring to the requirements of good manufacturing practices for cosmetics.
Owning to its special structure and orientation on cellulose fibers, LIOSIL® TS 913 E is characterized by an excellent soft hand combined with a transfere effect and a very good hydrophilicity.
Key benefits are:
- an excellent soft hand including a transfer effect
- a very good hydrophilicity
- a very easily dilutable with water
- a hight substantivity on cellulose fibers
The product amount should be tailored to the particular tissue being used. Typically the amount of product applied on the tissue is in the range from 1 and 5 g/m². For the application of LIOSIL® TS 913 E common technologies like roll coating, slot coating, spraying, or rotor damping systems are recommended. Aerosol formation has to be avoided. In case of aerosol formation special protective measures are required (see material safety data sheet).
The use of the emulsion is recommended for all conventional tissue types such as toilet paper, facial tissue, handkerchiefs or cosmetic wipes, which may benefit from a certain soft feel. The emulsion can be combined with other organic softeners or well-being additives, too, provided an adequate compatibility test has been performed. If substantial foaming occurs during processing, we recommend our SILFAR® S 184.
As LIOSIL® TS 913 E is a water based emulsion the product is very easy to handle. If necesary, LIOSIL® TS 913 E can be removed from machine parts without any difficulty using just water or a water based alkaline cleaning solution.
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label. Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
