Fascinating Silicone™ The Versatile Silicone Toolbox – Silicone Mixtures: Silicone + Liquids

Silicone + liquids

Silicone emulsions – stable blends of two “unblendable” liquids

Silicone fluid or polymer + emulsifying agent (surfactant) + water + optional additives

Silicone emulsions are easy to dilute and apply. They are also more environmentally friendly than solvent-based liquids. Silicone emulsions are often used as release agents, wetting agents, defoamers, problem-solving additives for paints and coatings, water repellents for construction materials, release coatings, textile treatments, and in the formulation of personal care, household care, and auto care products.

Silicone dispersions – silicone + solvent

Solvent-borne silicones are used in a wide range of products and processes as emulsifiers, antifoams, carriers for paint resins and additives, as automotive and industrial lubricants, as conformal coatings for electronic devices, as release agents and pressure sensitive adhesives, as fabric finishes and penetrating water repellents.
