Wacker Introduces Hybrid Polymer for Hairstyling

March 6, 2007

The silicone/vinyl acetate copolymer makes it possible to produce water-based hairsprays that not only provide a firm hold, but also give hair a natural feel. The newly-developed hybrid polymer, Wacker-Belsil P 101 gives hair a firm hold—without impairing soft feel, two properties that were previously thought to be incompatible.

This new product consists of two components—inorganic silicone and organic vinyl acetate. The polymer does not draw any water from moist air. It is ideal for formulating hairsprays with a high water content while avoiding any sticky film. The product can be used to make aerosol and pump sprays.

Formulations with Wacker-Belsil P 101 produce a fine spray that provides optimum distribution on the hair. Results indicate that the polymer ensures firm hold, enhances combability and gives hair a pleasant, soft feel.
