Silicone Ironing Aids

Give your rinse-cycle fabric softeners
and spray starches easy-iron properties.


Make ironing easier with Dow Corning® HV-495 Emulsion 

Today's consumers want their clothing to look neat and wrinkle-free, but they have little time or patience for ironing. They are looking to you for solutions that will speed and simplify the process.

With proven technology from Dow Corning, you can quickly and easily add desirable easy-iron properties to your laundry care formulations.

Dow Corning® HV 495 Emulsion has demonstrated its effectiveness in ironing aid applications. Suitable for use in rinse-cycle fabric softeners and fabric conditioners and in spray starches and other spray-on ironing aids, Dow Corning HV 495 Emulsion:

  • Provides lubricity to the treated fabric
  • Reduces starting and sliding friction between the fabric and the iron
  • Makes ironing easier, saving time, effort and electricity
  • Adds softness without negatively impacting water absorbency

Restore lost easy-care benefits

Easy-care fabric finishes improve softness and lubricity, impart wrinkle resistance, and ease ironing. But over time, the laundry process wears these benefits away. You can help consumers restore these lost benefits to their clothing by including silicones like Dow Corning HV 495 Emulsion in your rinse-cycle fabric softeners and conditioners.
