The glycol free nature of WETSOFT® AOP guarantees low solubility in water while maintaining good wetting properties of treated textiles. Emulsions of WETSOFT® AOP impart an excellent hydrophilic silicone softener for a wide range of fabrics and other substrates, such as 100% cotton, poly/cotton blends, rayon, acrylic and wool. WETSOFT® AOP has an excellent hand and is non-yellowing. It is also an efficient hydrophilic softener for nonwovens and toweling.

WETSOFT® AOP can be from solution, or emulsion. Suitable solvents are aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters, higher alcohols, and ketones. Most textile processes are water based. Hence WETSOFT® AOP is mainly applied from emulsion. WETSOFT® AOP is suitable for the formulation of micro emulsions. Emulsions made with WETSOFT® AOP are diluted to the optimum concentration for the specific fabric. Application can be done by padding or exhaustion. WETSOFT® AOP can be utilized as the active substance in softener emulsions or in combination with other components, e.g. polyethylene waxes, organic softeners, etc. Compatibility of the components has to be checked in each individual case.


Typical Formulation


  • 50.0 parts demineralized water (20-35°C)
  • 7.0 parts Tridecyl alcohol 6 EO
  • 1.5 parts Tridecyl alcohol 9 EO
  • 4.0 parts diethylene glycol mon butyl ether
  • 1.0 parts polyethyleneglycol (400)
  • 23.0 parts WETSOFT® AOP
  • 13.4 parts demineralized water
  • 0.1 parts conservation agents


The emulsifyer is dissolved in the demineralized water, then gradually add WETSOFT® AOP and mix until the product is clear and homogenous. Finally the second amount of water and conservation agent are added.


The "Best use before end date" of each batch is shown on the Certificate of Analysis. Storage beyond the date specified on the Certificate of Analysis 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.
