Product Description

RUISOFT 8064M is a linear organo-silicone copolymer. RUISOFT 8064M can deliver a luxuriously soft and flexible hand feel to most types of cellulosic, regenerated cellulosic and cellulosic blends of fabrics and garments.

Features and Advantages

● Slippery, voluminous and in-depth softness on virtually all types of fabrics as opposed to a greasy hand feel;

● Due to excellent exhaustibility and affinity with fibers, exhibit unique and unusually powerful softness effect at low use levels.

● Quickly absorbs water and perspiration; minimal impact on the hydrophilic nature of cotton and cotton blends.

● Fabrics and garments treated with RUISOFT 8064M remain hydrophilic on aging.

● Provides stretch recovery with bouncy and drapable effect, particularly on knits.

● Less yellowing;

● Easy to emulsify

Application

RUISOFT 8064M can be used for all kinds of cellulose fabrics, including regenerated cellulosic and cellulosic blends. RUISOFT 8064M should be emulsified before applying in textile finish process. It is easier to be emulsified than other traditional silicone oil for textile softener. Normal equipment and emulsifier can meet the requirement.

Because of its cationic structure, RUISOFT 8064M has limited compatibility with anionic auxiliaries. Compatibility tests should be carried out before it is used together with other chemicals.

Optimum dose levels of RUISOFT 8064M are subject to type of fabric and level of softness required, but 10-30 g/l ( for 0.2-0.6 % silicone pick-up ) of 20% silicone actives emulsion is typically recommended.
