LIOSIL® TS 50 E
LIOSIL® TS 50 E is a microemulsion of a functional silicone fluid that was developed specially as a softener for the tissue industry. LIOSIL® TS 50 E contains aloe vera, vitamin E and additionally a WACKER SILFOAM® antifoam agent.
Owing to its special structure and orientation on cellulose fibers, LIOSIL® TS 50 E is characterized by an excellent soft hand and a very good hydrophilicity.
- excellent soft hand combined with very good hydrophilicity
- very easily dilutable with water
- high substantivity on cellulose fibers
- very good bulk softness
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 50 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, too, provided an adequate compatibility test has been performed. LIOSIL® TS 50 E includes defoamer. Any deposits are reversible via stirring.
