Under the brand name Liosil, the chemical company Wacker Chemie AG, Munich/Germany, will market silicone fluids and silicone emulsions for textile and surface care products as well as for enhancing sanitary paper.
These silicones improve the performance of the end product and offer important additional effects that protect treated surfaces and materials, while also making them more attractive and enhancing their sensory properties. Liosil TS is the brand name for tissue lotions. These silicone formulations noticeably improve the properties of sanitary paper, even when used in very small amounts. Additives which are based on a resource- and climate-friendly mass balancing method will be labeled with the likewise new Liosil eco logo. This means that Wacker will immediately begin using its biomethanol-based approach in household-care applications as well. The method entirely compensates for fossil-based components through the use of plant-based – i.e., climate-neutral – raw materials.
