More About Magnasoft* 960 Textile Enhancer

A versatile textile enhancer, this specialty liquid improves the long-term performance of synthetic fabrics such as polyester and polyamide. Synthetic fabrics notoriously lose their hydrophilic nature when subjected to repeated washing, and most hydrophilic silicone softeners on the market fail to prevent this loss of water absorbency - but not Magnasoft 960 textile enhancer. 

This textile enhancer can help fabrics retain their water-absorbent nature as well as their soft feel, all without increasing slipperiness. Magnasoft 960 textile enhancer also generally offers better soil release, crease-mark resistance and anti-static performance in typical disperse dye-bath without floating toward the surface. Magnasoft 960 textile enhancer won't discolor colored fabrics and is unlikely to yellow white fabrics.  

Magnasoft 960 textile enhancer is an off-white liquid applied during padding or exhaustion finishing processes and formulated with no alkylphenol-based chemicals. As a concentrate that is self-dispersible in water, it typically affords versatile compatibility and maintains shear stability in typical bath conditions for textile finishing. Optimum dosages for required softness, fabric type and finishing conditions vary, but 10/40 g/L on padding or 2% to 5% of the weight of the fabric on exhaustion can offer excellent results in soft, durable water absorbency - noticeably superior to many conventional hydrophilic silicone softeners.    

Potential applications for Magnasoft 960 textile enhancer include:

  • On synthetic fabrics, to help them retain water absorbency
