Silicone emulsions are inert, heat stable, non-toxic products which suit many industrial applications where lubrication, gloss, antistatic, protective and release properties are advantageous. Silicone emulsions can be divided into three groups depending on the type of emulsifier system used – they can be: anionic, cationic and non-ionic. Most emulsions are non-ionic as they are compatible with either of the other two systems but depending on the application, cationic or anionic emulsions can be chosen.
The viscosity and physical characteristics can be altered by using different viscosity base polymers. High percentage solids versions can be supplied as concentrates and diluted with water prior to application, this makes for more cost-effective materials.
