WACKER® E22A is a nonionic silicone emulsion of a high viscosity polydimethylsiloxane. WACKER® E22A can be used in various applications - general purpose release agent, ironing aid in aerosol formulations of starch, printing additive in off-set printing, release agent for foundries.
- Fine particle size
- Ease and versatility of application
- Good wetting and spreading properties
- Excellent release properties
- Excellent dilution and shear stability
- Absence of fire hazard
In mold release applications, WACKER® E22A is normally diluted to 0.5 - 5.0%. However, in a polish or specialty product formulation, the emulsion is normally used in concentrated form. Normally, a high viscosity type silicone will give high gloss and durability, while the lower viscosity fluid emulsions are easier to apply and rubout.
The "Best use before end date" of each batch is shown on the Certificate of Analysis. Storage beyond the date specified on the Certificate of Analysis 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.
