FERMA-986 | Hydrophilic Silicone Fluid

Product Information

Ferma-986 is a non yellowing, silicone oil. Its emulsion imparts hydrophilic, greasy / peach handle with lubricity for all types of fibers. It maintains original absorbency of cellulosic and increases the hydrophilicity of synthetics. It is stable at broad pH range and compatible with optical brightness and residual electrolytes.

Instruction for Dilution 

Procedure to emulsify Ferma-986

It can be easily emulsified into stable nano emulsion using turbostirrer or normal stirrer at medium to high speed.

Tridecylalcohol ethoxylate 6.5 EO
Tridecylalcohol ethoxyolate 12 EO
Acetic acid
Water-1 (1st addition)
Water-2 (2nd addition)
Water-3 (3rd addition)

* First take Ferma-986 and surfactants (Tridecyl alcohol ethoxylate 6.5 EO and 12 EO and stir for 20-25 mins.

* Add 5ml (water1) and acetic acid mix gradually under constant stirring and stir for 15-20 min.

* Add 7ml (water2) and stir for 10-15 mins.

* Add 56ml (water3) and mix gradually under constant stirring for 10 15 mins. till homogeneous product is formed.



The recipe pH should not be less than pH 6. The recipe pH should be pH 6-6.5.

It is advisable to utilize the diluted product within 2 months. Stir well before use.
