Silicone elastomer emulsions produce thin, elastomeric films after water evaporation. These products vary in surface charge, film strength, pH and catalyst type. These materials are relatively complex mixtures, therefore please consult Southern Silicones for advice during formula development. Silicone elastomer emulsions can be used to produce surface protectants, fiber (polyester, glass, etc.) sizing agents and water-proofing coatings.
Both cationic and anionic variations are available, with and without reinforcing additives. Based on volume and supply chain considerations, Southern Silicones offers elastomer emulsions on a custom basis. Please contact us for further information.
