ADVALON® HO 111
ADVALON® HO 111 is an extremely finely dispersed water-based silicone emulsion. The particle size is in the nanometer range. ADVALON® HO 111 can be easily diluted with water or readily incorporated into coldstirred formulations.
ADVALON® HO 111 is manufactured to have a low content of low molecular weight cyclic siloxanes (i.e. D4,..., D8 <500 ppm).
ADVALON® HO 111 qualifies particularly for applications combining water repellent properties with softness, e.g. outdoor apparel.
ADVALON® HO 111 imparts an excellent roll-off of water droplets as well as a very soft, drapable, and elastic touch to woven and knitted fabrics.
ADVALON® HO 111 improves the wash-and-wear properties and the crease recovery angle, sewability and tear strength and reduces abrasion loss.
Specific features of ADVALON® HO 111
- Dilutable with water
- Excellent droplet effect
An essential prerequisite for optimum water-repellent effect is thorough precleaning of the material and the removal of all interfering wetting agents.
ADVALON® HO 111 can be applied by cautious padding. The pH value should be between 4 and 6. The stability of the bath is improved by using demineralized water.
Drying should be done at the usual temperatures for the individual types of fibre, so at 120 °C to 160 °C for 3 – 6 minutes.
