Munich — Wacker Chemie A.G. will bundle its silicone additives for household, consumer and sanitary paper products under a new name, Liosil.
According to Wacker, the Liosil brand will include Liosil FC additives for fabric care, making towels softer and more absorbent and keeping fabrics wrinkle-free; Liosil HC additives for household care, which can help protect flooring through impregnated textiles and give a brighter shine to leather and other furnishings; and Liosil TS for tissue lotions, silicone fluids and emulsions that can enhance the texture, absorbent and anti-scratch properties of sanitary paper.
"Liosil is now the official brand name for our household care products," said Thomas Koini, who heads the Performance Silicones business unit at Wacker Silicones.
In addition, Wacker has introduced the Liosil eco brand of silicone additives, which completely replace fossil-based raw materials with plant-based, climate-neutral materials. Liosil eco silicones will use a biomethanol-based approach for the household, cosmetic and personal care industries.
