Wacker Wetsoft® NF 210E Silicone Softener Emulsion
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Silicone

Material Notes: Product description: WETSOFT NF 210E is a nonionoic micro emulsion of a hydrophilic self-dispersing polyether-amino-functional silicone fluid.

Properties: By improving the hand and because of its nonhydrophobic (and on some types of fiber, hydrophilic) nature, WETSOFT NF 210E considerably improves the wear comfort of textiles. The hydrophilic properties are the result of the special orientation of WETSOFT NF 210E on the fiber surface. This allows unrestricted moisture transport within the fabric, together with the excellent hand that is generally associated with highquality silicone textile softeners. Due to the surface oriented silk-like and supple softness effect it is particularly suitable for light woven goods where hydrophilic properties are of importance. WETSOFT NF 210E bonds more strongly to the fiber surface that glycol- and quat-functional Polysiloxanes. This leads to better exhaustibility and wash resistance.

Application: WETSOFT NF 210E is used for hydrophilic treatment of fibers and textiles of all kinds. On hydrophilic substrates such as cellulosics, the hydrophilic properties are not usually affected, whereas hydrophobic substrates such as polyesters usually experience an improvement in wetting properties. WETSOFT NF 210E provides woven goods and knitwear with a silk-like soft, full bodied, bulkie, supple and smooth hand. When applied under normal conditions WETSOFT NF 210E only has a slight effect on whiteness. It does not generally affect the color shade or fastness of colored goods. WETSOFT NF 210E is used for padding, in the exhaust process and can also be used on its own or together with organic fabric softeners, polyethylene waxes and other finishing agents. The compatibility should be tested on a case-by-case basis. Because of its cationic structure, WETSOFT NF 210E has limited compatibility with anionic auxiliaries such as optical brighteners. Compatibility tests should be carried out before it is used together with other chemicals.
