Polyether Modified Silicone Oil has strong wetting properties

Update:2023-07-20 16:30
Summary:

Polyether Modified Silicone Oil is a unique silicone non-ionic surfactant. It has a wide range of applications, including lubricants, plastic additives, and paint wetting agents. It can also be used as a defoaming agent.

It has strong wetting properties and is soluble in most solvents. It is also useful as a foam stabilizing agent in urethane pools. It is compatible with a variety of cosmetic ingredients.
It is a kind of organic silicon non-ionic surfactant

In this invention, a block type amino polyether modified silicone oil is prepared by subjecting an a-organohydrogensiloxane having an SiH bond at one end to an addition reaction with a glycerol containing two unsaturated aliphatic chains. The critical micelle concentrations (CMCs) of the resulting surfactant were determined using cloud point, surface tension and small angle neutron scattering measurements.

The grafted silicone polyether copolymer is strong wetting and is completely soluble in water and most organic solvents. It can be used in textiles, agricultural and paints and coatings. It provides hair conditioning, foam stabilization, formulation stability and slip resistance in PC formulas. It also acts as a flow and leveling aid in inks and coatings.

Amino-modified polyether silicone oils are used to make shampoos that are colorless, odorless and non-irritating to skin. They also have excellent softness, antistatic and washing resistance properties. They are highly soluble in water and other liquids and are non-toxic, non-corrosive and do not pollute the environment.
It is a water-in-water emulsifier

This high-molecular-weight water-soluble silicone polyether can be used as a defoaming agent in both water-based and solvent-based applications. It also acts as a flow and levelling agent in paints and coatings. It is odorless, and has excellent solubility in organic solvents. It can also be reacted with isocyanates and epoxides to modify resins.

It is used in shampoos and conditioners to impart a smooth feel to hair and skin, as well as in personal care products. It has a lower surface tension than water, and is odorless, non-toxic, and resistant to chemical attack.

Its polarity can be controlled by the ratio of ethylene oxide (EO) to propylene oxide (PO). A higher proportion of EO increases its polarity, making it more compatible in polar coating systems. It can also be used in aqueous defoaming systems, such as those found in cleaning and washing formulations. It has good lubricity and conditioning properties, and can also be used as a rheology modifier.
It is a lubricant

Polyether-modified silicone oil is a versatile silicone nonionic surfactant, suitable for use as defoaming agents, wetting and pigment dispersants in paints, levelling and softening additives in coatings. It is also an excellent lubricant. It has good oxidative stability, chemical resistance and water repellency. It is widely used as an antifoaming agent, especially in aerosol sprays and emulsions. It is also used as a polishing agent, for it can give vehicles a bright luster and long-lasting stain resistance.

It can be used as a lubricant for medical devices, such as catheters and stents. It is nontoxic, odorless and dries to a clear film. It can prevent the device from rubbing against the skin, thereby reducing stimulation to the patient’s body.

Polyether-modified silicone oil containing an amino group has higher heat resistance than ordinary polyether silicone oil. It can be used as a fiber oil agent and resin additive, and can help make fabric feel super-soft. It is also used in hair care products. It can reduce foaming, reduce viscosity, and improve the smoothness and lustre of hair.
It is a polishing agent

Modified silicone oils can be formulated for a wide range of uses. They can be used as wetting agents, pigment dispersants and leveling agents for paints and coatings. They are also useful as lubricants and antistatic agents. They can be made by graft copolymerization of PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) with various end and side chains. The type of modifying group affects the properties and uses of the oil.

Polyether-modified silicone oils are widely used in fabric finishing, building waterproofing, foam stabilization for PU foam and agricultural spreading agents. They can help improve the penetration of pesticides into crops and reduce spray volume. They are non-toxic and non-irritating to human skin.

Polyether-modified silicones can be used as polishing agents to produce a high sheen and long-lasting water resistance. They are especially suitable for use in automotive finishes. In addition, they can be used as leather polishing agents to increase the luster of a shoe and provide water resistance.
