Followings are guide formulations for different silicone active content emulsion that can be commonly applied in textile finish process. Further dilution with water after emulsifying can obtain a micro-emulsion with lower silicone actives.    


Micro-emulsion for 23.0% silicone actives1) Formulation


% wt

StarSoft 1028


TDE-6 or AEO-6*

TDA-9 or AEO-9






Acetic Acid




Preservative if required


     TDE-6 : Tridecyl Alcohol 6EO ethoxylated

       - AEO-6: Fatty alcohol ethoxylated with 6 EO


2) Procedure

   Charge StarSoft 1028, emulsifiers and butylcarbitol to a mixer and then stir it at moderate speed for ~10 min till fully homogeneous.

 Premix acetic acid and water.

  lowly add the acidic water while continuously stirring above content. Stop charging the acidic water occasionally to ensure the water is well taken into the grease.

 Clear micro-emulsion should be obtained at end of this procedureFilter before packing, if necessary




           The diluted StarSoft 1028 can be applied to fabric. Optimum                          

           treatments are dependent on the required softness of the fabric and yarn after dyeing and

Stripping :


StarSoft 1028 can be stripped off fabric. The stripping formulation is as follows:


NaOH           :       5g/l  

LABS(30%)     :     2-5%


Add water and NaOH onto fabric tank and then heat to 100 C for 60 min. Then rinse fabric with acidic water and water .





To ensure that the product quality is maintained, the container should be tightly sealed when not in use. It should be stored at normal room temperature, preventing prolonged exposure to extreme heat and cold conditions, which may cause product separation. If the product is separated, stir the contents. If the product is frozen, thaw it at warm condition and stir after thawed.
