New Generation Silicone Fluids
New generation silicone oils are the 4th generation silicone oils which provide outstanding silkiness and softness to a variety of fabrics. New generation silicone oils may be used on synthetics fabrics, cotton and polyester blends, polyester fleece, and wool. They are water dispersible and can be effective with a dosage level of three or four times lower than amino silicone fluids. They can minimize the problem of yellowing, shear stability, and thermal migration. The softness provided by ABn linear copolymer softener is durable for numerous detergent washes. Also, fabrics treated with the ABn linear copolymer silicone oils are not hydrophobic. It imparts a slow-wetting character to fabrics.
