Wacker Belsil® P 1101 Silicone Polyvinyl Acetate
Categories: Fluid; Polymer

Material Notes: The hair styling and conditioning polymer BELSIL® P 1101 is a silicone-organic hybrid material. It is provided as a 50% solution in denatured ethanol.

Properties: BELSIL® P 1101 combines the strong hold properties of a hair styling resin with typical silicone properties like softness and silkiness. BELSIL® P 1101 can be used in aerosols, pump sprays and balm/gel-type formulations. In styling applications BELSIL® P 1101 is used as a non-flaking hair resin for medium to strong hold. High water content can be formulated without compromising hold, silky feel and quick drying times. In aerosol applications, it shows good compatibility with DME and butane/propane mixtures. In conditioning applications BELSIL® P 1101 can help to prevent heat damage to hair by a reduced water loss from hair fibers during hot iron or blow drying treatments. It can also act as film former in color cosmetics, sun screen and skin care products.

Application: BELSIL® P 1101 is delivered in denatured ethanol as the solvent. The solution needs to be stirred well before use. The hybrid polymer contains free acid groups which should be neutralized with a base to an extent of 80 to 100% within hair styling formulations. The acid number is provided with the certificate of analysis. BELSIL® P 1101 can be blended with other hair styling resins. For such cases the polymers should be neutralized separately before being combined in the final formulation.
