Shin-Etsu Chemical develops new silicone emulsion

1 Comment

Shin-Etsu Chemical Co has developed a new improved type of silicone emulsions.

Silicone emulsions are products that make it easy to mix together silicone and water with other materials by adding an emulsifying agent (surfactant) to such materials as silicone fluids and silicone resins and dispersing it in water. Because of the superior characteristics that silicones have and the emulsions’ ease of use, silicone emulsions are used in a wide range of applications such as release agents, lubricants and gloss enhancers.

The new silicone emulsions that were developed with a high level of purification technology lower the concentration of specific siloxanes to comply with the trend in REACH regulations. REACH, which stands for the four processes of Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, is a process of regulation set up by the European Union that was adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment.
