Visit us at Techtextil 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany
Techtextil is an unmissable event for the textile industry and our team is looking forward to participating to this 2019 edition. This year’s theme “Space for innovation” particularly resonates with the Textile Coating Silicones team as they will showcase their latest development of silicones for artificial leather applications.
High end silicones, such as our Bluesil™ and Silbione™ ranges are the material of choice because they are versatile, easy to process and provide dynamic performance features and durability required by technical textiles. Airbags, sports garments, architectural membranes, textile printing are just a few examples of applications where silicones will take technical textiles to the next level.
Textile Coating Silicones (TCS) systems are specifically engineered taking into account the characteristics of both the substrates and the processes, enabling optimized interaction between the textile and the coating material. The textile composite can then provide the best possible functions for each application, including:
- Tensile and tear strength
- Thermal, fire and UV resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Ageing performance and durability
- Anti-slip capabilities
- Compatibility with human health and safety needs, as well as comfort features
Our global team is looking forward to meeting you at their booth #B87, Hall 3.1, from May 14th to 17th in Frankfurt, Germany. Contact us for more information or to schedule a meeting with the team!
