ECOFLUID-8603 | Silicone Fluids

Product Information

Ecofluid-8603 is a medium viscosity reactive mono-amino functional polydimethyl siloxane fluid. Ecofluid-8603 may be used alone or in conjunction with other silicone fluid or with appropriate organic softeners, this compatibility allows the formulation of specialty softener blends.
Ecofluid-8603 emulsion imparts very soft, drapable and elastic handle to woven and knitted fabrics. Ecofluid-8603 emulsion is considered to be ideal softening agent for cotton or Cot/PES blends. It improves wash and wear properties, crease recovery angle, sewability, tear strength and reduces abrasion loss. The effects are reasonably fast to washing and dry cleaning.
