Momentive is Super: Superspreading for Enhanced Home Care Product Performance

    Silwet(*) Hydrostable(*) 68 Superspreader Widens the pH Range and Increases
the Spread Area of Conventional Surfactants

    WILTON, CONN., September 6 /CNW/ - Momentive Performance Materials Inc.
today introduced Silwet Hydrostable 68 superspreader, an advanced silicone
surfactant that may help support a wide range of product performance
enhancements for home care, institutional and industrial (HII) formulators.
These formulators may use Silwet Hydrostable 68 superspreader to enhance the
performance of products such as dish soap, disinfectants, dishwasher
detergent, window cleaners, automatic car washes, car waxes and other products
for automotive surfaces.

    Silwet Hydrostable 68 superspreader is an organomodified silicone that
offers surface tension reduction and superspreading properties, while
remaining stable in formulations ranging from pH 6 to 8, a 25-fold expansion
over the range offered by conventional surfactants.

    By providing immediate spread coverage more than 100 times greater than
the corresponding volume of water and 25 times greater than solutions
containing conventional surfactants, Silwet Hydrostable 68 superspreader
significantly improves the penetration of a product's active ingredients into
cracks and crevices.

    "With Silwet Hydrostable 68 superspreader, we're giving home care
formulators an innovative alternative to conventional surfactants," said
Robert Ruckle, global marketing manager, Momentive Performance Materials.
"Whether it is providing better drying and spot-free properties for
dishwashing formulas or enabling much greater penetration of disinfectants,
Silwet Hydrostable 68 superspreader can give home care formulators a
performance edge in the marketplace."

    Silwet Hydro stable 68 superspreader is the first in a series of
Momentive Performance Materials superspreader product introductions for HII
