Ultra-stable methyl silicone oil emulsions that you must know about!
In recent years, the development and application of silicone products have received more and more attention. Silicone oil emulsion, is one of the main forms of silicone oil secondary processed products, methyl silicone oil emulsion is emulsified methyl silicone oil emulsion products obtained, a large number of mold release agents, defoamers, fiber finishing agents, cosmetics and other types of products in the formulation. Emulsion is a thermodynamically unstable multi-phase dispersion system, long-term placement, temperature changes, dilution with water, shear and other conditions, the emulsion is prone to silicone oil and water two-phase separation, emulsion breakage, resulting in production and application of economic losses. Therefore, the stability of silicone oil emulsion is crucial.
Ecken Silicones is a leader in the silicone industry, with 13 R&D centers, more than 500 patented technologies, and 13 comprehensive production sites around the world. Ecken Silicones focuses on R&D and innovation in the field of specialty silicones, and occupies a leading position in the global market in the fields of high-performance silicone elastomers, release coatings for paper and film, textile coatings, and technical seals.
Ecken Silicones has developed Bluesil™ EMUL 360, Bluesil™ EMUL 872, Bluesil™ EMUL 8060 and other styles of methyl silicone fluid emulsions to meet your application development needs in different industries. They are 60% active nonionic dimethicone emulsions emulsified from 350 viscosity dimethicone. They can be used in a wide range of systems, such as nonionic, anionic, cationic emulsions or polymer systems that do not form complexes, and have more obvious advantages than the pre-generation products, with better stability when diluted to 20% solids.
The three silicone oil emulsions offer the following properties when dried to film:
Excellent thermal stability
Polydimethylsiloxanes have a structure similar to inorganic polymers due to the main chain being composed of -Si-O-Si-Bonds, which have high bonding energies, and still provide excellent heat resistance after emulsification.
Good picture water resistance
Although the main chain of polydimethylsiloxane is composed of polar bonds Si-O, the non-polar alkyl groups on the side chain are arranged in an outward direction, preventing water molecules from entering the interior and acting as a hydrophobic agent.
Excellent mold release and barrier properties
Does not contain alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO) and does not cause environmental pollution during production.
Comparison of the properties of the three emulsions
Glossing agent: It can be used for the glazing of automobile beauty, tires, leather, shoe polish and other products, with the least amount of addition to provide better gloss.
Mold release agent: can be used for the release of EVA shoe soles, rubber, plastic parts, with good dilution stability and low additive amount, improve the cost-effective.
Pilling agent: It can be used as a pilling agent for textile fabrics, which can make the products have better fluffy and pilling effect.
Powder treatment: mainly used in rutile titanium dioxide, magnesium powder and other powder coating, play a powder lubrication, etc., to give the product a better dispersion of wetting properties.
More properties and applications of silicone oil, to be explored together.
Please pay attention when using
Use clean mixing tanks, feeding lines, boxes and rolls;
Use cold water to dilute the emulsion;
Do not use high shear mixers when preparing finishing fluids.
Storage and expiration date
Store above 5ºC and unopened below 35ºC (86ºF). This product has a shelf life of 12 months from date of manufacture. Freezing of these three lotions may occur, please take care to avoid it. If freezing occurs, please melt it at room temperature before further use.
