E35 100 is a 35% emulsion of medium viscosity Polydimethylsiloxane. It is primarily designed for use in applications for mold release, furniture polish, textile finishing, and other specialty formulations. E35 100 contains sodium nitrite as a corrosion inhibitor. E35 100 should not be used in contact with amines.
- Ultrafine particle size
- Ease and versatility of application
- Chemical inertness
- Absence of fire hazard
In mold release applications, E35 100 is normally diluted to 0.5% - 2.5%. A suitable preservative should be incorporated into all water-based formulations to help retard the growth of bacteria. In a polish or specialty product formulation, E35 100 is normally used in its concentrated form. Optimal performance in polish applications is usually achieved by blending E35 100 with another emulsion is in the Wacker® E35 series to get a combination of properties. Normally, a higher viscosity type silicone will give high gloss and durability, while the lower viscosity emulsions are easier to apply and rubout.
