Efficient solutions help control foam, enhance feel and increase cleaning performance

Silicones have been used in laundry products for more than 40 years to provide effective foam control in consumer washing machines. They also have been used for nearly as long in fabric softeners and as laundry additives to enhance garment comfort, garment protection and ease of care. Silicones are well-known for their ability to provide surface protection, cleanability and shine – making them ideal for use in polishes and cleaning fluids.

Through the Dow Corning® and XIAMETER® brands, our silicone antifoams, softening agents, polish additives and cleaners provide real solutions for consumers as well as manufacturers.

Silicones can add value and lower the cost of formulations because they are versatile, provide long-lasting performance and have low use levels – replacing larger volumes of other materials.
