The comfort of functionality with resins for leather & textiles coatings
We have been working closely with applicators and formulators in textile manufacturing for over three decades. In that time, we’ve developed a substantial understanding of the market’s challenges and trends.
Textiles touch every aspect of our day: At home, at work and at play. The quality of our living space is often measured by the comfort around us. Our formulators are committed to making improvements that make a real difference in people’s lives. Like waterborne coatings that contain no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), ready-to-use coatings that need just a single layer; or breathable coatings perfect for any weather.
We have solutions for almost any domestic textile. From couches to carpets, drapes to doormats, you’ll find our coatings everywhere. Like our waterborne polyurethane thread coatings that provide much needed abrasion resistance and slip for commercial sewing operations; and our acrylic polymers that are used in drapery coatings and as a blending partner for our waterborne polyurethane coatings.
We want to provide value in the products we make. In industrial textiles, strength and durability are key success factors in the latest product developments. We are committed to reducing coating weight and so reducing total fabric weight. Narrow web coatings add abrasion resistance and durability to sling and harness applications. We also offer firm and soft hand options.
Sport and leisure fabrics need to combine comfort and performance. We offer coating chemistries that slow the onset and spread of fire on synthetic fabrics. Our breathable coatings are impervious to water yet allow body moisture to escape, leaving the wearer dry and comfortable. One of our latest developments is a soft waterborne polyurethane resin that offers a dry, supple hand.
