Silicone Polyether Surfactant
Silicone Polyether Surfactant contains water insoluble silicone backbone nad number of water soluble polyeteher pendant groups. Ratio of the silicone to polyther and the molecular weight and composition of the components determine the solubility and specific properties of a product. It is of great importance in agricultural sector. Pesticides, fertilizers and insecticides comprises majorly of this specific product. It is an effective wetting agent that is used by industries for wetting and spreading process. It provides lubrication and versatility to various fabrics and hence is an useful agent for textiles. silicone Polyether Surfactant is resistant towards mar and better leveling foam surface which makes it an ideal as a component of inks.
SS SUF 100 is a hydrolytically stable Silicone polyether surfactant, which contain both a water-insoluble silicone backbone and a number of water-soluble polyether pendant groups. The ratio of the silicone to polyether, and the molecular weight and composition of the components determine the solubility and specific properties of a product.
Agriculture : As wetting agent enhances performance of herbicides and pesticides by dramatically reducing the product's surface tension, results in better spread and penetration of herbicides on the targeted leaves. This improved efficacy and to minimize the amount of the chemicals needed.
Inks and Coatings: Provides better slip, improved mar resistance, better leveling and foam control. Effective at very low concentrations hence are cost effective.
Textiles: Provide defoaming, lubrication, final product's softness, feel, wear ability, versatility and improved processing during the manufacturing stage.
Pulp and Paper: Improve various defoaming, drainage and better release. Also increases softness, absorbance or repellence of final products.
Personal Care : Improved softness, shine, conditioning, detangling and mollience. Also used as emulsifiers for creams and sun care products to improve stability and efficacy aesthetic delivery.
Leather : Improve both natural and synthetic leather's feel, softness, durability, abrasion resistance and resistance to soiling.
Automobile : Improve gloss, shine and beading to various products.
Oil and Gas : As organic demulsifier. As processing aids in many applications.
Polyurethane Foam : As stabilizers for the polyurethane foam industry
