Lanspec SI 30 is an effective emulsifier system for the preparation of stable poly(dimethylsiloxane) oil in water emulsions. Similar to Lanspec SI 20, it is applied to defoamers, textile softeners, lubricants, and releasing agents. At 25°C, it appears as a pale yellow to amber liquid, free from foreign matter, with a characteristic odor. It is dispersible in water and used in the preparation of poly(dimethylsiloxane) in water emulsions.

Functions: Emulsifier (O/W)

End Uses: Mold Release Agents

Applications

Lanspec SI 30 is used in the preparation of Poly(dimethylsiloxane) in water emulsions, a typical emulsion system is shown below:

Poly(dimethylsiloxane) 30%
Water 60%
Lanspec SI 30 10%

The emulsion is produced by charging the water and Lanspec SI30, apply high shear mixing to the solution and slowly add the Poly(dimethylsiloxane), continue mixing until a homogeneous stable emulsion is produced.
