Application

Silicone Softener For Textiles RUISOFT RJ-8016C can be used for all kinds of fabrics. But the best performance will be achieved when applying to natural fibers, such as cotton, cotton blends, wool, wool blends, viscose, rayon acetate and so on.

RUISOFT RJ-8016C 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, Silicone Softener For Textiles RUISOFT RJ-8016C has limited compatibility with anionic auxiliaries. Compatibility tests should be carried out before it is used together with other chemicals.

Formulation(20%)

  •  RUISOFT RJ-8016C                                                        20g

  •  Emulsifier(BASF XL40:BASF XL90=1:1)                   5g                                         

  •  Acetic acid                                                                        0.5g 

  •  Water                                                                               74.5g

Attention: If you don’t have Basf XL series emulsifier, we recommend isotridecyl alcohol ethoxylates with 3EO and 7EO, the ratio of 3EO and 7EO is 1:1.

Shear resistant stability

To realize the shear resistant stability test we use 0.5g/l Na2CO3, 1g/l Na2SO4, 0.1g/l reactive dye and 50g/l RUISOFT RJ-8016C in 200ml bath. The stirring speed is 2000r/min,and the temperature is 50℃. The following pictures are the results of the test.
