Amino-functional silicones confer excellent softness, elasticity and lustre to textiles.

However, due to their exposed reactive groups, they are prone to external influences. Alkali, shear forces and high temperatures attack silicones here especially. If the functional groups are readily accessible, chemical interactions can easily arise, thus destabilising the originally stable emulsion. The silicone oil, which can cause stains on the fabric, is degenerated.

In order to avoid that the amino-terminal groups have been replaced by the more stable amido-groups in the functional side chains. The reactive groups in ®RUCOFIN GWA, which has been especially developed for universal applications, are sterically protected and thus less sensitive to external influences.
