Anti-slip and release properties at the same time?
Manufacturers commonly use silicone elastomers as flexible coating systems for technical textiles. They usually do not desire the grip or high-friction properties of silicone coatings in their current products. However, silicones have the unique ability to provide a mild-adhesiveness for some applications that need to exhibit anti-slip and release properties at the same time. How can manufacturers simultaneously exploit these anti-slip and release properties in functional textile applications?
