Application

RUISOFT 8065M can be used for all types of fabrics and colors, including cotton, cotton blends, synthetics and other cellulose. But the best performance will be

achieved when applied to cotton and cotton blends. Remarkably, retain the hydrophilicity even after extreme cure conditions as well as on aging of treated fabrics.

RUISOFT 8065M should be easily emulsified with simple mixer. It is easier to be emulsified than other traditional silicone oil softener. Normal equipment and emulsifier can meet the requirement.

The emulsion of RUISOFT 8065M is extremely stable under high shear, wide PH range (3-12) and high temperature. As a result, RUISOFT 8065M can be applied onto fabrics by all types of finishing equipment including high speed padding, kiss roll, spray, exhaustion, etc.
