WACKER® FC 207
WACKER® FC 207 is a nonionic micro emulsion of an aminomodified silicone fluid, especially for fabric softeners.
WACKER® FC 207 can be combined with conventional fabric softeners and improves the properties of the rinse cycle softener.
WACKER® FC 207 can be easy formulated into esterquat based fabric softeners.
WACKER® FC 207 improves the softening efficacy of fabric softeners and the fabrics get a significant softer and pleasant touch.
Additionally WACKER® FC 207 reduces the friction forces of the iron and therefore ironing properties are improved significantly.
Preferably WACKER® FC 207 is mixed into the fabric softener at the end of the formulation process by gently stirring.

- 20,0 parts esterquat, e.g. Stepantex VK 90 (50°C) are poured slowly into
- 75,6 parts demineralized water (50°C) while stirring until the mixture is homogenous.
- 0,4 parts CaCl² solution (25%) are added
- q.s. perfume, dye, preservative are added
- 4 parts WACKER® FC 207 are mixed while stirring
Dosage recommendation: ca. 3 - 6 % WACKER® FC 207 in the fabric softener formulation
The dosage of WACKER® FC 207 in the fabric softener depends on the expected effects.
The level of organic softener can be reduced in favor of WACKER® FC 207.
