More About Niax* Silicone L-5617

A silicone surfactant with the hydrolyzable stability found in Momentive's Niax silicone L-5614, Niax silicone L-5617 may be an ideal choice for applications that call for low VOC emissions. 

Niax silicone L-5617's ability to stabilize mechanically frothed foams makes shear-induced cell collapse less likely. At the same time, it can provide cell opening and reduce froth density for high-quality product applications like bakeware. These features make Niax silicone L-5617 an excellent additive where lower VOC emissions are important. 

Potential applications for Niax silicone L-5617 include:

  • Carpet and artificial turf backing
  • Specialized fabrics like leather substitutes for upholstery
  • Gaskets, sealants and two-faced tapes
