WACKER® FC 228
WACKER® FC 228 is a nonionic macro emulsion of a reactive, aminofunctional silicone fluid, especially for fabric softeners.
WACKER® FC 228 is combined with conventional fabric softeners and improves the properties of the fabric softeners. WACKER® FC 228 is easy to mix with fabric softeners.
WACKER® FC 228 improves the softening efficacy of fabric softeners and the fabrics get a significant softer and pleasant touch. With WACKER® FC 228 the hydrophilicity is increased. Additionally WACKER® FC 228 reduces the friction forces of the iron and therefore the ironing properties are improved significantly.
Preferably WACKER® FC 228 is mixed into the fabric softener at the end of the formulation process by gently stirring.
Example for a fabric softener with WACKER® FC 228:
- 20,0 parts esterquat, e.g. Stepantex VK 90 (50°C) are poured slowly into
- 77,6 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
- 2 parts WACKER® FC 228 are mixed while stirring
Dosage recommendation: Ca. 1 - 3 % WACKER® FC 228 in the fabric softener formulation
The dosage of WACKER® FC 228 in the fabric softener depends on the expected effects.
The level of organic softener can be reduced in favor of WACKER® FC 228.
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.
Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
The pH value shown in the certificate of analysis is that of a freshly produced product. It is well known that during storage of the material the pH can slightly increase. This does not have a negative impact onto product quality.
Stirr always well before use.
