StarSoft 1018C
A Hydrophilic Textile Softener Concentrate
StarSoft 1018C is a super soft & excellent stable textile softener.  It contains a revolutionary silicone molecule to deliver voluminous and silky hand feels. It provides consistent hydrophilicity to most types of textile fiber or fabric at lower use level than other silicone softeners.  It is very stable in ordinary textile finish process without causing oil-spots on fabric.
Key Features and Typical Benefits
:         Provide fast & consistent water absorption on various fabric;
:         Impart soft & smooth hand feel;
:         Deeply penetrate into fibers and impart bulkiness;
:         Water dispersible microemulsion;
:         Readily diluted to any grade without additional emulsifies;
:         Very stable & non oil-spots if used in ordinary textile finish process;
:         Excellent affinity with all types of textile;
:         Excellent fiber elasticity and shape recovery;
:         Durable softness to laundering;
:         Less fabric yellowing; 
:         Outstandingly exhaustible to particularly natural fibers;
:         Redyeable & over dyeable.
1.     Properties :

 Liquid state
Transparent with bluish  
Solid Contents
Viscosity (25<C)
<2,000 cst
pH (25<C)

2.     Application:
Since StarSoft 1018C  can be readily diluted in water, no additional emulsifying is required to straightly apply in textile finish process. 
In order to get homogenous dilution of 4918C, It is advised to add water into 4918C slowly under moderate stirring.  
For example,
StarSoft 1018 : 50%
Water:             : 50%
Charge StarSoft 1018 at first into a mixer, and then start to stir. Slowly add water into the mixer under stirring. A clear microemulsion with bluish can be obtained.
StarSoft 1018C can be used as received or pre-diluted with water before applying.  Optimum treatments are dependent on the required softness of the fabric and yarn after dyeing and rinsing.
