Amino silicone oil is a basic component specially used for textile softener. It has the best absorbability, compatibility and emulsification. Using a mixer or homogenizer, the amino silicone oil is easily emulsified into a stable and transparent microemulsion by the appropriate surfactant. It can be used alone or combined with other organic silicon or organic softeners to become a special softener. It is suitable for softening finishing of all kinds of textiles. The ammonia value of amino silicone oil is between 0.2~1.2, the higher the ammonia value, the better the softness and smoothness, but it will more easier to turn yellow.
Excellent soft, smooth, uniform hand feel.
The tearing strength and crease resistance of the fabric are enhanced.
Improve the elasticity of the fabric.
Washable and dry cleaning.
It is easy to emulsify, and can be made into stable microemulsion.
It has excellent compatibility and is compatible with most organic softeners and other textile auxiliaries.
Under normal circumstances, the choice of amino silicone oil for different fabrics is as follows:
1, pure cotton and blended knitted fabrics and woven fabrics are mainly soft handle, and can choose 0.6 amino value silicone oil.
2, Pure polyester fabric is mainly made of smooth hand feel and can choose 0.3 amino value of amino silicone oil.
3, silk knitted fabrics and woven fabrics are mainly made of smooth hand feel and high gloss requirements. The main choice is 0.3 amino value of amino silicone oil.
4, Wool and its blend fabrics require soft, smooth, elastic integrated handle and little change in color and light. Amino silicone oil blending products can be selected with 0.6 ammonia value and 0.3 ammonia value. Some varieties can be added with smoothing agent to increase elasticity and gloss.
5, The cashmere sweater and cashmere fabric have higher hand feel than wool fabric, and high concentration compound products can be selected.
6,Polyamide socks are mainly made of smooth hand feel and high elastic amino silicone oil.
7, Acrylic fiber Raschel blankets, acrylic and blended yarns are mainly soft and highly elastic. 0.6 amino values of amino silicone oil can be selected with flexibility.
8, Hemp fabrics (linen and ramie) are mainly smooth, and 0.3 amino value silicone oil is the main choice.
9, Rayon and artificial cotton are mainly soft handle, and 0.6 amino value of amino silicone oil can be selected.
10, Polyester fabric, mainly to improve the hydrophilic property of fabric, can choose polyether modified silicon oil (CGF), which is made by hydrosilylation of methyl hydrogen containing silicone oil with polyether polyether with unsaturated bonds at the end and polyethylene glycol. But the softness is poor, and the new polyether modified silicone oil introduces reactive epoxy groups on the silicon oxygen chain, which improves the feel and durability of the fabric.
Amino silicone softener is a substance that can increase the softness of fiber materials. The softener with excellent performance can also make the fiber special feel, endow the product with different finishing style, improve the quality grade and added value, and increase the clothing comfort. Softeners used in industry can be classified into four main categories: grease type, surface active dosage form, reactive type and polymer type according to their main active ingredients. Early use of softeners mainly in the first 3 categories, after entering the 70s, the development and use of polymer softeners quickly aroused people's attention, and became the mainstream of soft finishing. In the series of polymer softeners, silicone softeners (mainly composed of polyorganosiloxane) have the best performance and the largest output. According to statistics, there are about 150 thousand tons of siloxane used in textile finishing auxiliaries worldwide, of which softeners account for 70% to 80%.
