Wacker Introduces Wetsoft® NE 580 Silicone Softener

Germany-based Wacker Chemie AG has launched the Wetsoft® NE 580 hydrophilic silicone softener for the finishing of both natural- and man-made-fiber textiles. According to the company, the new softener is a self-dispersing microemulsion concentrate that offers high stability in alkaline solutions and when exposed to high temperatures, high shear and salts; and also high process stability.

Wetsoft NE 580 may be used alone or with other finishing agents, and is well-suited for high-quality finishing applications, the company reports. Among the benefits it imparts to textiles are increased moisture transport and a “silky-velvety” hand.
