Self-dispersed Silicone Softener

POWSIL-59160 is new generation textile softener based on copolymer technology, a revolutionary silicone molecule to deliver a natural silky handle. 

It is self-dispersed silicone fluid and developed to solve issues such as thermal migration, oil-spots, oiling/greasy feel and color change, particularly on polyester or its blends that traditional amino-silicone tends to encounter.

  • POWSIL-59160 is readily diluted with water, no additional emulsifying process is required. It can be directly applied in textile finish process.

  • POWSIL-59160 silicone softener for textiles can be used as received or pre-diluted with water before applying. The desirable usages are dependent on the required softness of the fabric and yarn after dyeing and rinsing.

  • Pad-dry-cure process

  • Dosage:       2-10 g/L for light fabric or 10-20 g/L for heavy fabric

    pH:              5.0-7.0

    Temp.:        Ambient temperature

    Dry/Cure:   120-170°C for 1-3 min

  • Exhaustion process

  • Dosage:            0.2-1.0% (o.w.f) on light fabric & 1.0-2.0% on heavy fabric

    Liquor ratio:     1/10-1/20

    pH:                   5.0-7.0

    Temp.:              Ambient temperature

    Time:               10-30 min

    Drying:             100-170ºC for 1-3 min

  • Garment washing process

  • Dosage:        1.0-3.0% on the weight of garment

    Temp.:          Ambient temperature

    Duratio:        30-60 min

    Drying:         100-130ºC for 3-5 min

  • Stripping :

    POWSIL-59160 can be stripped off fabric. The stripping formulation is as follows:

    NaOH :          5 g/L    

    LABS(30%) :   2-5%

  • Add water and NaOH onto fabric tank and then heat to 100ºC for 60 min. Then rinse fabric with acidic water and water.

Packing and Storage

  • POWSIL-59160 for silicone coated fabric tends to be sediment on bottom during storage period. If the product is separated, stir the contents to homogeneous. If the product is frozen, thaw it at warm condition and stir after thawed.

  • To ensure that the product quality is maintained, the container should be tightly sealed when not in use. It should be stored at normal room temperature, preventing prolonged exposure to extreme heat and cold conditions, which may cause product separation. 

  • POWSIL-59160 is packaged in net weight 120Kg plastic drum.
