WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E is a nonionic macro emulsion of a reactive, aminofunctional silicone fluid.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E is particularly suitable as softener for the impregnation of fibers and textiles.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E imparts a very soft, smooth and elastic touch to woven and knitted fabrics.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E is considered to be the best softening agent for PES/cotton fabrics.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E improves the wash-and -wear properties and the crease recovery angle, sewability and tear strength and reduces abrasion loss. The effects are fast to washing and dry cleaning.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E has very little effect on the degree of whiteness.
Generally, no adverse effect on the shade or colour fastness properties of coloured goods is observed.
As part of formulations used as fill fibre finish WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E imparts excellent slickness and resilience to the fibre.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E的特殊性能
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E gives permanent effects even without the addition of a catalyst. Specific curing conditions need not be adhered to if no resins are used.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E can be applied by padding method, but the finishing liquors should not be subjected to high shear, as this might cause instability.
5-30 g/l WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E are recommended for the pad method.
WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E can be applied either alone or together with resins and other finishing agents.
Higher crease recovery angles and lower abrasion values can be obtained in resin finishes by using WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E. A wide range of touches can be obtained by combining WACKER® FINISH CT 78 E with conventional softening agents and other additives such as fillers based on polyacrylate.
Typical recipe for woven and knitted materials from synthetic fibres:

- 200 kg drum
- 950 kg IBC
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.
Emulsions showing signs of creaming should be agitated before use to assure uniform consistency.
