LIOSIL® TS 405 E
LIOSIL® TS 405 E is a microemulsion of a functional silicone fluid that was developed specially as a softener for the tissue industry. LIOSIL® TS 405 E has a low solid content.
Owing to its special structure and orientation on cellulose fibers, LIOSIL® TS 405 E is characterized by an very good soft hand at good hydrophilicity.
- good soft hand combined with excellent hydrophilicity
- dilutable with water, but we recommend direct use
- low viscosity
- high substantivity on cellulose fibers
The product amount should be tailored to the particular tissue being used. Typically the amount of product applied on the tissue is in the range from 1 and 5 g/m². For the application of LIOSIL® TS 405 E common technologies like roll coating, slot coating, spraying, or rotor damping systems are recommended. Aerosol formation has to be avoided. In case of aerosol formation special protective measures are required (see material safety data sheet).
The use of the emulsion is recommended for all conventional tissue types such as toilet paper, facial tissue, handkerchiefs or cosmetic wipes, which may benefit from a certain soft feel. The emulsion can be combined with other organic softeners or well being additives, too, provided an adequate compatibility test has been performed. If substantial foaming occurs during processing, we recommend our SILFOAM® antifoam agents.
