Silicone Elastomer Gel Silibase-6800

TECHNICAL DATA SHEET


Item No.:
Silibase-6800
Product Name: Silicone Elastomer Gel

Equivalent: DC 9040, SFE-839, RG 100, Ksg-16


Cyclopentasiloxane /Vinyldimethicone Crosspolymer [INCI/CTFA] 

Features

Clear to slightly translucent crosslinked silicone elastomer gel
Suitable for many personal care formulations
Acts as a thickening agent for w/o and w/silicone oil formulations, cyclomethicones and other silicone fluids

Benefits

Provides dry smoothness and a light silky skin feel , non-greasy
Enhances the aesthetics of cyclomethicones
Reduces tackiness of formulations
Quick absorption
Cold processing
Slight sebum absorption

Description

Silibase-6800 silicone elastomer blend is a mixture of high molecular weight silicone elastomer in cyclomethicone. Since a clear to slightly translucent gel, Silibase-6800 could be dispersed in oil phase excellently. The product may be formulated into w/o emulsions, water-in-silicone oil, and o/w emulsions and anhydrous products to provide dry smoothness and a light silky skin, non-greasy feel. 

Technical Data

Appearance……………………………………………Colorless to yellowish, transparent to translucent gel
Penetration degree (1/10mm) …………………………………………… 300-450
Non-volatile content (%, w/w)  ………………………………………………≥14
Note:These values are not intended for use in preparing specification.

Applications  
     
Silibase-6800 may be used in skin care, hair care, and other potential formulations, such as sun care, color cosmetics, and styling aid, etc.

How to use

Silibase-6800 could be dispersed into the oil-phase using simple mixing.
It may be added to the oil phase or silicone phase in an emulsion formulation.
It can be post-added to emulsions provided the emulsion is viscous enough for the products to be dispersed.
For ease of use, blending with dimethicone or cyclomethicone may reduce its viscosity.
When heat is used, the material should be processed in an enclosed vessel to prevent the cylcopentasiloxane from volatilizing.
The recommended processing temperature is not over 60℃.
Silibase-6800 would become very thick or even lumpy after a period of time. This is normal and it will recovery to original state after slightly agitate.
The suggested usage level is 1%-20%.

Package

Silibase-6800 is supplied in 18kg plastic pails or 200kg iron drums. Samples are available upon request in bottles.

Storage and Transport

Silibase-6800 is non-dangerous product. In storage and transportation, prevent from the exposure of moisture, acids, alkalis, the sun and rain directly. The product has 24 months shelf life from the date of production at room temperature in seal-tight condition. The storage temperature could not be over 60℃.

Cautions

Silibase-6800 is neither tested nor suggested in the medical and pharmaceutical applications.
