Use of high-pressure homogenizer in silicone emulsion, cosmetics, medicine, textile products, leather industry, lacquer paint, etc. It is used in fields. Due to the inert nature of silicone-based emulsions, they are generally used as emulsions.
Silicone emulsions are silicone oils dispersed in an aqueous system. Emulsions are ideal for surface treatment, easy to apply and easy to prepare. The high viscosity of some silicone oils can be effectively reduced through emulsification. The purpose of silicone emulsion formulation is to facilitate the processing and efficient development of the product. Silicone liquids are commonly used in the form of aqueous emulsions, which can be further diluted with water. The size and homogeneity of the emulsions have shown a significant effect on the stabilization of droplets, which further affects the application performance.
It is essential to use a high-pressure Homogenizer for Silicon emulsions. Silicones and silicone liquids are so universally used that they appear in everyday life without even realizing it. They are used in adhesives, lubricants, Pharmaceuticals, cleaning and polishing products, insulation materials, electrical insulation, etc. In silicone grease lubricants or coatings manufacturing, the silicone liquid must be homogenized optimally when mixed with other materials or water. Silicone mold separators require homogenization to emulsify the silicone and disperse it homogeneously through the water phase and avoid phase decomposition.
After high-pressure homogenization, the particle size of the product decreases. When we work at a pressure higher than 500 bar, particle sizes reach 1 micron and below. The excellent stabilization of silicone oil emulsions can be achieved significantly using a mild emulsification technique of membrane emulsification. The droplet size and homogeneity of silicone oil droplets can be improved by checking, as well as changing surface properties through a combination of optimized techniques.
