Chemicals for performance and comfort enhancement

Key features:
  • Wash-and-wear performance that withstands laundering
  • Comfort finishes provide softness and garment performance
  • Repellent options for effective and durable water resistance
  • Auxiliaries for wetting, foam aides and lubricants
  • Durable wicking performance
  • Excellent pigment and print binding.

We produce a wide range of binders and comfort finishes for synthetic and organic textiles. These are used in the manufacture of apparel including hospital scrubs, athletic wear and business wear.

Our binders provide nonwoven garments with high tensile strength, resilience and moisture resistance. This enables our customers to produce premium quality textiles, and more durable garments. We also offer a wide range of performance and comfort finishes, including press resins, softeners and repellents.

Synthomer organic and silicone softeners impart a soft-hand feel to a wide range of organic and synthetic fabrics. Our non-fluoropolymer solutions can be effectively used to impart water repellence, and oil resistance, as well as soil-release characteristics, to ensure reliable performance for a range of different end-uses.

Synthebond™ SA 134 SA

Synthebond SA 134 is a soft styrene acrylic emulsion recommended as a general purpose textile back-coating and fabric finishing binder.  It has some internal cross-linking and thus provides good wash and dry clean durability.  The product exhibits very good water resistance. 

VELVETOL™ 1471 SatPE

Velvetol 1471 is a multifunctional hydrophilic polyester polymer. While polyester fabrics offer a good substrate in terms of tensile strength and anti-crease properties, their hydrophobic nature, poor conductivity making static build up causes discomfort to human body when used as apparel material. Hydrophilic polyester technology has made it possible to finish polyester fabric that is cotton like, transports moisture and is easy to clean. Velvetol 1471 imparts that finish to polyester fabric in both exhaust and pad cure process without sacrificing key properties of the fabric.

Velvetol™ 251C SatPE

Velvetol 251C is a multifunctional polyester polymer. It imparts a hydrophilic soft hand finish to polyester fabrics that reduces static charge generation on fabric and garments.
