BC 403

Basildon Chemicals BC 403 Silicone Glycol is a combination of polydimethylsiloxane with polyoxyalkylene materials to form a silicone glycol polymer that has a wide range of applications from its action as a cloud-point acting antifoam through to enhancing the flow properties in many inks and coatings applications. It also is able to act as a rinse-off release agent due to its solubility in water for applications where silicone must not be present in the finished product.
