Qsoft-POA | Silicone Fluids
Qsoft-POA is a novel hydrophilic, non-yellowing amido silicone oil. It is suitable after emulsification for cellulosic (woven, knits & towels) all types of fabrics. It has very good moisture absorbing properties thereby gives comforts to a wearer. Qsoft-POA emulsified oil has pH and shear stability. An emulsion of Qsoft-POA provides a soft and supple handle. Emulsified Qsoft-POA can be applied by padding as well as exhaust.
