Jul '10
Manufacturers Chemicals LLC, Cleveland, Tennessee, which is a specialty chemicals manufacturers, has revealed that, its Silicat hybrid softeners provide a similar hand and drape to a fabric, but yet consist of significantly less silicone as compared to the traditional silicone-based softeners. Consumers have already replaced silicones pound-for-pound by making use of the new technology.

The firm has invented a new chemical or mechanical process wherein, they make an emulsion of a new level of non-silicone softener clubbed with conventional amino functional silicones. With the help of this technology they can manufacture a high performance, and highly stable hybrid softener.

The resulting product provides great reductions in silicone content, reduces cost drastically, lesser chances of sports, great improvement in flammability and zero yellowing. More over, the environmental impact of these softeners is extremely less than the conventional silicone emulsions.

Manufacturers Chemicals is manufacturing the Silicat line at its Cleveland facility and the hybrid softeners are available in a variety of concentrations and in both hydrophobic and hydrophilic versions.
