Aquafinish-158 (CONC). | Hydrophilic Macro Silicone
Aquafinish-158 (Conc) is a new generation hydrophilic macro polysiloxane which gives extra-ordinary smooth surface touch. It can be applied by exhaust as well by padding method. It is suitable for terry towels, knits and woven fabric. Finishing with Aquafinish-158 (Conc) leads to soft and hydrophilic finish.
Aquafinish-158 (Conc) is shear stable and hence suitable in jets, soft flow and garment washing machines.
