WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E is a non-ionic micro emulsion of an amino functional silicone fluid.
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E is particularly suitable as softener for the impregnation of fibers and textiles.
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E imparts a very soft, smooth and elastic touch to woven and knitted fabrics.
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E is considered to be the best softening agent for woolen goods and PES knitware.
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E improves the wash-and-wear properties the crease recovery angle and tear strength and reduces abrasion loss. The effects are fast to washing and dry cleaning.
Specific features of WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E
- Dilutable with water
- Low VOC
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E gives permanent effects even without the addition of a catalyst. Specific curing conditions need not be adhered to if no resins are used.
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E can be applied either by padding or by the exhaust method but the finishing liquors should not be subjected to high shear as this might cause instability.
5 - 30 g/l WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E are recommended for the pad method. For the exhaust method 1 - 3 %, relative to the weight of goods are adequate and the treatment should be carried out at 40 - 50 °C for 15 - 20 minutes. The pH of the liquor should not exceed pH 5. It may need to be adjusted with acetic acid.
WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E can be applied either alone or together with resins and other finishing agents.
If WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E is used together with crosslinking agents and other additives, it should be added, in dilute form, after all the other products. (This recommendation applies generally to the processing of all polysiloxanes).
Higher crease recovery angles and lower abrasion values can be obtained in resin finishes by using WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E. A wide range of händles can be obtained by combining WACKER® FINISH CT 95 E with conventional softening agents and other additives.

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.
Emulsions showing signs of creaming should be agitated before use to assure uniform consistency.
