Description

GP-7101 is based on a combination of dimethyl silicone fluid with organic wax side chains. The combination of silicone and wax groups in GP-7101 suggests uses in mold release agents, rubber and plastic lubrication, textile lubricants, and as a formulation ingredient in waxes and polishes for automotive and furniture applications. GP-7101 contains no free dimethyl silicone fluid and will not show the traditional transfer or wash-off associated with conventional silicone fluids used in polishes. The following list summarizes some of the special features of GP-7101:

  • Forms Rust Protective Coatings
  • Consists of Unique Grafted Wax-Silicone Copolymer Structure
  • Compatible with many Hydrocarbon Oils
