Dow Corning to exhibit flame-retardant textiles

Dow Corning Corporation will feature its new multifunctional softener for flame-retardant textiles, new impact protection material product line additions and silicone textile printing inks at the Northwest Apparel and Footwear Materials Show to be held from September 15-16 in Portland, Oregon.

Jointly developed with DEVAN Chemicals, this technology allows apparel manufacturers to increase softness and hydrophobicity on existing flame-retardant finishes without impacting flame retardancy. Most current flame-retardant chemicals negatively impact the softness of the textile leading to very harsh fabrics, which then become uncomfortable-to-wear garments, according to Jenny Geng, Dow Corning’s global textiles marketing manager.
