Silicones from head to toe

Textile manufacturers, clothing designers, garment makers, tanneries, leather goods manufacturers, shoemakers and sports outlets all use silicone ingredients to make and enhance their products. Silicones are used directly as process aids in their manufacturing processes, for example, to lubricate needles in high-speed sewing by garment manufacturers, and, with Silcolapse® products, to control the foam created by scouring agents in textile processing.

Elkem Silicones enhance apparel and accoutrements:

  • Bluesil® amino-silicone fluids and emulsions impart a soft and silky feel to clothing. Silicone finishes give leather goods, such as handbags, a smooth luxury feel and keep them looking good by improving mar and abrasion resistance.

  • Bluesil® TCS anti-slip products keep stockings in place, not sliding down legs.

  • Leather tanned with Bluesil® FLD 1669 makes hiking boots waterproof yet breathable.
