Wacker Wetsoft® AOP Silicone Fluid
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Silicone

Material Notes: Product description: WETSOFT® AOP is a glycol free, modified amino, hydrophilic silicone fluid.

Properties The glycol free nature of WETSOFT® AOP guarantees low solubility in water while maintaining good wetting properties of treated textiles. Emulsions of WETSOFT® AOP impart an excellent hydrophilic silicone softener for a wide range of fabrics and other substrates, such as 100% cotton, poly/cotton blends, rayon, acrylic and wool. WETSOFT® AOP has an excellent hand and is non-yellowing. It is also an efficient hydrophilic softener for nonwovens and toweling.

Application: WETSOFT® AOP is particularly suitable as an active substance in formulations for the impregnation of fibers and textiles, when good wetting properties are desired. Maintaining the moisture absorption of the treated fiber, WETSOFT® AOP contributes to a high comfort factor of the textile. WETSOFT® AOP emulsion imparts a soft hand to woven and knitted fabrics, and is non-yellowing. WETSOFT® AOP improves the wash and wear properties, sewability and reduces abrasion loss. WETSOFT® AOP has good durability up to 3 home laundries. WETSOFT® AOP has very little effect on the degree of white in a softener formulation when usual application conditions are adhered to. No adverse effect on the shade or color fastness properties of colored goods is generally observed.
