WETSOFT® LV 720
WETSOFT® LV 720 is a concentrated, nonionic micro emulsion of a self dispersing silicone copolymer.
WETSOFT® LV 720 offers a low content of cyclics.
By improving hand and because of its hydrophilic nature, WETSOFT® LV 720 considerably improves the wear comfort of textiles.
The hydrophilic properties are the result of the special orientation of WETSOFT® LV 720 on the fiber surface. This allows unrestricted moisture transport within the fabric, together with the excellent hand that is generally asso-ciated with high-quality silicone textile softeners. Due to the surface oriented silklike and supple softness effect it is particularly suitable for light woven goods where hydrophilic properties are of importance.
WETSOFT® LV 720 bonds more strongly to the fiber surface than glycol- and quat-functional polysiloxanes. This leads to better exhaustibility and wash resistance.
WETSOFT® LV 720 has limited compatibility with anionic auxiliaries such as optical brighteners. Compatibility tests should be carried out before it is used together with other chemicals.
WETSOFT® LV 720的特殊性能
WETSOFT® LV 720 is used for hydrophilic treatment of fibers and textiles of all kinds.
On hydrophilic substrates such as cellulosics, the hydrophilic properties are not usually affected, where-as hydrophobic substrates such as polyesters usually experience a clear improvement in wetting properties.
WETSOFT® LV 720 provides woven goods and knitwear with a silklike soft, full bodied, bulky, supple and smooth hand.When applied under normal conditions WETSOFT® LV 720 only has a slight effect on whiteness. It does not gen-erally affect the color shade or fastness of colored goods.
WETSOFT® LV 720 can be applied by padding or via exhaust process. It may be used on its own or together with organic fabric softeners, polyethylene waxes and other finishing agents. The compatibility should be tested on a case-by-case basis.
For padding, it is recommended to use 5 to 15 g/l of WETSOFT® LV 720.
For the exhaust process, 1 to 2 % WETSOFT® LV 720 is used, based on the weight of the textile.

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.
