WETSOFT® 150E CONC
WETSOFT® 150E CONC is a 70% active concentrated modified amino silicone that is water dilutable. WETSOFT® 150E CONC is a premier organo-functional modified hydrophilic silicone softener. WETSOFT® 150E CONC is an excellent hydrophilic silicone softener for a wide range of fabrics and other substrates, such as 100% cotton, poly/cotton blends, rayon, acrylic and wool. WETSOFT® 150E CONC is an efficient softener for nonwovens and toweling.
WETSOFT® 150E CONC is particularly suitable to produce softener micro emulsions by simple dilution of the concentrate. These emulsions can be used for the impregnation of fibers and textiles. WETSOFT® 150E CONC is particularly suitable as a hydrophilic softener for the impregnation of fibers and textiles when good wetting properties are desired. Maintaining the moisture absorption of the treated fiber WETSOFT® 150E CONC contributes to a high comfort factor of the textile. WETSOFT® 150E CONC imparts a soft, luxurious hand to woven and knitted fabrics, and is non-yellowing. WETSOFT® 150E CONC improves the wash-and-wear properties and sewability and tear strength and reduces abrasion loss. WETSOFT® 150E CONC has good durability up to 10 home laundries.
WETSOFT® 150E CONC has very little effect on the degree of white when usual application conditions are adhered to. As a rule, no adverse effect on the shade or color fastness properties of colored goods is observed.
3-10 g/l of WETSOFT® 150E CONC diluted to 20 - 30% solids are recommended for the pad method. For the exhaust method 1-3%, relative to the weight of goods, is adequate and the treatment should be carried out at 40-50°C for 15-20 minutes. The pH of the liquid should not exceed pH 5. It may need to be adjusted with acetic acid WETSOFT® 150E CONC can be applied either alone or together with resins and other finishing agents. WETSOFT® 150E CONC, when applied to nonwovens, such as thermalbonded polyester or spunbonded polypropylene at a 1.0% actives level the substrate is imparted with a soft, silky hand. WETSOFT® 150E CONC improves wetting of hydrophobic surfaces in the textile industry.
