Published on 2005-06-09. Author : SpecialChem

Launched at Techtextil/Avantex, Ciba® DICRYLAN® PGS is a versatile polymer for ultrafine coating of items such as clothing, tents, boat covers, shoes, rucksacks and self adhesive decorative materials; it is also suitable for embossing effects for signage and logos, for example. The product has high resistance to hydrolysis, and thus to weathering and UV degradation.

Achieving new heights – resistance to weathering and UV degradation with Ciba® DICRYLAN® PGS

Anti-fogging properties and compatibility with Ciba® FLOVAN® CGN flame retardant make DICRYLAN® PGS suitable for automotive applications.

DICRYLAN® PGS can, in combination with other products, be used to replace solvent-based applications and PVC, in particular for military fabrics.

The product can be applied by paste or foam coating, padding or spraying.
