By improving hand and because of its hydrophilic nature, WETSOFT® NE 810 considerably improves the wear comfort of textiles and is therefore particularly suitable for use with nonwovens and terry goods.

The hydrophilic properties are the result of the special orientation of WETSOFT® NE 810 on the fiber surface. This allows unrestricted moisture transport within the fabric, together with the excellent hand that is generally associated with high-quality silicone fabric softeners. WETSOFT® NE 810 bonds more strongly to the fiber surface than glycol- and quat-functional polysiloxanes.

This leads to better exhaustibility and wash resistance. Formulations based on WETSOFT® NE 810 have a pH-stability that extends well into the alkaline range, and offer good shear resistance. Because of its cationic structure, WETSOFT® NE 810 has limited compatibility with anionic auxiliaries such as optical brighteners. Compatibility tests should be carried out before it is used together with other chemicals.

WETSOFT® NE 810 can be used for hydrophilic treatment of fibers and textiles in diluted form, either on its own or mixed with WETSOFT® NE 820. WETSOFT® NE 810 is an ideal active substance in hydrophilic fabric softeners for treating fibers and textiles of all kinds. On hydrophilic substrates such as cellulosics, the hydrophilic properties are not usually affected, whereas hydrophobic substrates such as polyesters usually experience a clear improvement in wetting properties. A formulation based on WETSOFT® NE 810 and WETSOFT® NE 820 can impart spontaneous wettability to even very hydrophobic substrates.

WETSOFT® NE 810 provides woven goods and knitwear with a silklike soft, full bodied, supple and smooth hand.

When applied under normal conditions as part of a fabric softener formulation, WETSOFT® NE 810 has no effect on whiteness. It does not generally affect the color shade or fastness of colored goods.

WETSOFT® NE 810 formulations are used for padding, in the exhaust process and can also be used on their own or together with organic fabric softeners, polyethylene waxes and other finishing agents. The compatibility should be tested on a case-by-case basis.



For padding, it is recommended to use 10 to 30 g/l (25%)WETSOFT® NE 810 formulation. For the exhaust process, 0.3 to 0.8% WETSOFT® NE 810 is used, based on the weight of the textile. WETSOFT® NE 810 can easily be diluted with warm water to produce stable formulations.

Typical formulation


50.0 parts demineralized water (40 °C)

4.0 parts i-tridecyl-O-(EtO)10-H (HLB 14)

10.0 - 25.0 parts WETSOFT® NE 810

35.9 - 20.9 parts demineralized water

0.1 parts preservative


The emulsifier is dissolved in the warm (40 °C) demineralized water, then gradually add WETSOFT® NE 810 and mix until the product is clear and homogenous. Finally the second amount of water and preservative agent are added.
