WETSOFT® CTA is a self-dispersible aminofunctional silicone fluid with polyether groups.
WETSOFT® CTA can be applied alone in diluted form or blended with organic softeners to impart hydrophilic properties to fibers and textiles. Before mixing with organic softeners, a compatibility test is recommended.
Specific features of WETSOFT® CTA
- Dilutable with water
WETSOFT® CTA can be applied as an aqueous dilution by padding as well as by the exhaust process.
10-20g/l WETSOFT® CTA are recommended for the pad application.
WETSOFT® CTA can easily be processed into stable emulsions. To do so, just mix WETSOFT® CTA with e.g. acetic acid and then stir with water. After mixing for about ten minutes, a milky emulsion is obtained. For easier incorporation of water and better stability of the end product, co-emulsifiers, e.g. diethylene glycol, propylene glycol, or glycerol, can be used.
