Wacker launches hydrophilic fabric softener

Wacker has launched hydrophilic fabric softener, WETSOFT NE 750 for textile finishing which improves the softness of textiles and has excellent absorbency. The hydrophilic fabric softener can be applied to towels, woven and knitted fabrics by either exhaust or padding processes. Both cotton and blended fabrics containing polyester can be finished with the product.

WETSOFT NE 750 offers significant advantages for textile-auxiliary formulators. The hydrophilic fabric softener is marketed as a waterfree concentrate with a high solids content. The product is self-emulsifying and can be diluted with water in a ratio of 1:1 to 1:5 to form a stable emulsion.

The combination of softness and water absorbency is of crucial importance for high-quality textiles. Materials treated with WETSOFT NE 750 have a pleasant and soft hand feel while remaining absorbent since the emulsion penetrates to the core of the fabric, even when the fabric contains long pile fibres.

The main constituents of WETSOFT NE 750 are block copolymers based on aminofunctional silicones and polyglycol. The silicone fluid segments arrange themselves in free-moving loops on the outside of the fabric and reduce friction between the fibres providing the fabric a soft feel. (NA)
