WACKER® 1038 is a reaction product of silicone resin with silicone fluids, which forms water-repellent release films. These films have much better affinity than is attainable with polydimethylsiloxanes and many organomodified silicone fluids of comparable viscosity.
WACKER® 1038 can be used as a component in polish and release agent formulations. In polishes, WACKER® 1038 is used in paint conditioners and paint polishes to improve detergent resistance, depth of image, and gloss without affecting the ease of rub out.
WACKER® 1038 combines the positive properties of silicone fluids and silicone resins. Release agents, e.g. for the processing of microcellular PUR foams, which are formulated with WACKER® 1038, exhibit high release efficiency and satisfactory overpainting and bonding features.
