Description

GP-675 is a 100% active Nonionic silicone polyol block copolymer with the structure below where the polyoxyethylene (EO) blocks and polyoxypropylene blocks (PO) are random.

The polyoxyethylene-polyoxypropylene copolymer blocks and dimethyl silicone polymer blocks are joined through non-hydrolyzable silicon to carbon bonds. The following list summarizes some of the special features of GP-675:

  • Low Surface Tension
  • Water Dispersible
  • Non-Hydrolyzable
  • Low Freeze Point

Applications

GP-675 is designed to function as an emulsifier, wetting agent and profoaming additive for a variety of applications including: polyurethane foams, hard surface cleaners and polishes and cosmetic formulations. GP-675 exhibits inverse solubility versus temperature characteristics, becoming insoluble in water as temperature is increased to approximately 40° C (104° F). This property suggests use as a defoamer for hot aqueous surfactant solutions. The following are some additional applications:

  • Pigment Dispersant
  • Glass Cleaner Ingredient
  • Wetting Agent
  • Shampoo Additive
  • Thread Lubricant
  • Polyurethane Foam (Cell Control Agent)
  • Leveling and Flow Control Agent
  • Profoaming Additive (Aqueous Systems)

Processing and Safety Guidelines

GP-675 has a very low order of toxicity, but should still be handled with all precautions common to the use of any industrial chemical product. For additional information refer to Safety Data Sheet.
