WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV is a reactive aminoethyl-aminopropylfunctional polydimethylsiloxane with a reduced level of cyclic siloxanes. It is based on renewable raw materials according to “TÜV NORD Standard REDcert²”. In the
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV manufacturing process from metallurgical silicon, the use of fossil-based raw materials is compensated 100% by biomethanol from renewable resources.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV is particularly suitable as active substance in softener formulations for the impregnation of fibers and textiles.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV imparts a very soft, drapable, and elastic touch to woven and knitted fabrics.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV is considered to be the best softening agent for cotton fabrics and knitware made of cotton or cotton/PES blends.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV improves the wash-and-wear properties and the crease recovery angle, sewability and tear strength and reduces abrasion loss. The effects are fast to washing and dry cleaning.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV has only little effect on the degree of whiteness in a softener formulation. As a rule no adverse effect on the shade or color fastness properties of coloured goods is observed.
As part of formulations used as fill fiber finish WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV imparts excellent slickness and resilience to the fiber.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV can be applied neat, from solution, or emulsion. Suitable solvents are aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters, higher alcohols, and ketones.
Most textile processes are waterbased. Hence WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV is mainly applied from emulsion. WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV is suitable for the formulation of microemulsions and macroemulsions.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV can be used as sole active substance in softener emulsions or in combination with other components, e.g. paraffines, esters of fatty acids, etc. Compatibility of the components has to be checked in each individual case.
Emulsions of WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV are diluted to the optimum concentration for the specific fabric. Application can be done by padding or exhaustion.
WACKER® FINISH eco WR 1300 LV is supplied as follows:
• 0.5 kg sample
• 190 kg drum
• 950 kg IBC
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.
