Silwet Hydrostable 611 superspreader is an organomodified siloxane that provides surface tension reduction and superspreading properties to aqueous solutions while remaining stable in formulations from pH 6 – 11.
Features & Benefits of Hydrostable 611
This product reduces surface tension in aqueous solutions at use levels up to 0.5% by weight. Typical recommended starting levels are 0.1%.
The associated typical benefits are antifogging, sheeting, quick-dry, hard water spot elimination and penetration of the solution delivering dissolved materials to otherwise unreachable locations.
Silwet Hydrostable 611 superspreader is an excellent candidate to consider for use in home care formulations where pH can be controlled between 6 and 11. Examples of such potential applications include:
- Manual dishwashing liquid
- Automatic dish washing formulations
- Car wash
- Window cleaners
- Alkaline hard surface cleaners
Typical Physical Properties
Performance Data of Silwet Hydrostable 611
T-shirts were stained with a variety of insults and then treated with commercially available stain pre-treatments, both as purchased and with Silwet Hydrostable superspreader added. The t-shirts were washed with detergent and the performance was assessed visually by whiteness (Stain Removal Index). The Silwet Hydrostable Superspreader is believed to help the detergent actives penetrate the fibers of the cloth for improved stain release.
