Definition of Silicone Softening Agent
Softener is a compound of organic polysiloxane and polymer, which is suitable for soft finishing of natural fibers such as cotton, wool, silk, hemp and human hair.
Silicone finishing agent auxiliaries have a wide application in textile finishing. The auxiliary can not only deal with natural fabrics, but also deal with polyester, nylon and other synthetic fibers. After treatment, fabric is anti-wrinkle, anti-fouling, anti-static, anti-pilling and plump, soft, elastic and glossy, with a smooth, cool and strong style. Silicone softening finishing can also improve the strength of fiber and reduce abrasion. Silicone softener is a promising fabric softener, which is also an important additives to improve product quality and add value in textile dyeing and finishing processing.
Silicone Softeners features
Soluble in water, aqueous solution is very stable and in good compatibility;
The fabric feels soft, smooth and full, and has good drape and puffiness;
Excellent hygroscopicity and good permeability
Moisture absorption and antistatic property;
It has good resilience and wrinkle resistance
Stable working fluid, no demulsification, no floating oil;
Not easy to get yellowing in high temperature.
Silicone Softeners Classification
① Hydroxy silicone oil
② Amino Silicone oil
③ Epoxy silicone softener
④ Hydrophilic silicone softeners
Among the various kinds of silicone fabric softener, silicone auxiliaries are becoming more and more important due to their unique surface properties and excellent softening properties.
Current situation of silicone softeners
Most of the domestic silicone softeners for textiles which is hydrophobic, which makes the wearer stuffy and it is difficult to wash. Many fabric products often appear the phenomenon of bleaching oil.
The traditional hydrophilic polyether silicone oil has better hydrophilic and water-solubility, but with poor softness and durability.
Therefore, it is of great practical significance to develop new hydrophilic silicone softeners with fine softness and durability.
