BELSIL® R 220 is a solid phenyl silicone resin. The product is produced for use as a film former in color cosmetic applications with the focus on nail polish applications. 

  • INCI Polyphenylsilsesquioxane


BELSIL® R 220 combines the good film forming properties of silicone resins with high gloss and shine. Due to the high refractive index caused by the phenyl groups, BELSIL® R 220 provides a significant higher gloss than standard silicone resins. Compared to other phenylated silicone resins BELSIL® R 220 shows an improved solubility especially in solvents commonly used for nail polish formulations such as ethyl acetate and butyl acetate. 

These special properties of BELSIL® R 220 make the product ideally suited to be used as film former in nail polish applications or other color cosmetic applications.
