ECOFLUID-23 | Silicone Fluids

Product Information

Ecofluid-23 is a high viscosity diamino polydimethyl siloxane fluid. Ecofluid-23 is considered to be an ideal softening agent for cotton, woven/knits and its blends. Ecofluid-23 emulsion imparts soft, drapable and elastic handle on treated substrates. It improves the crease recovery angle, sewability, tear strength, abrasion resistence and wash and wear properties of treated substrates. The effects are reasonably durable to washing and dry cleaning.
