Cosmo Speciality Chemicals has developed a 5th generation Silicone softener” LOTOSIL BHB” range which can be applied to any substrate like Cotton, Polyester and blends, etc. These are hydrophobic and based on block silicone chemistry.

"We thrive on creating unique goods, and to promote meaningful innovation for the textile industry, allowing us to bring new solutions to a wider audience at a faster speed,” said Anil Gaikwad, business head, Cosmo Speciality Chemicals.

“We have also developed Silicone softeners for a set of four products in LOTOSIL BHB” range which gives excellent inner softness with soft bouncy feel stable to shear force, high liquor TDS temperature and variation in pH. It is a hydrophobic softener based on block silicon chemistry.”

Silicone softeners increase the quality of textile materials, particularly their handling. The term "handle" refers to the mechanical behavior of fabrics that have been subjected to low pressures similar to those experienced during garment production and usage. It is critical in this day and age for everyone, from youngsters to the elderly, regardless of gender, to have a soft feel and be amazed by the lightness and bulkiness of materials. In this day and age, comfort is a requirement of society.

The substrate of this 5th generation Silicone softener can be over-dyed without stripping after being finished with LOTOSIL BHB ranges, is easily miscible with water in all proportions, and is very effective on Knits and Woven. The product is also easily miscible with water in all proportions, suitable by exhaust and Pad application techniques apart from being compliant to GOTS.
