Top sportswear brand to use Dow Corning® Silicone Textile Printing Inks

Published on 2010-05-18. Author : SpecialChem

During a world-level competition this summer, at least five global sports teams will wear special uniforms manufactured by a top sportswear brand. The uniforms use innovative Dow Corning® Silicone Textile Printing Inks, providing players with durable screenprinted designs that look great, feel soft and don't crack, fade or run.

Dow Corning, a leading supplier of silicone solutions for the textiles industry, is able to provide athletic apparel manufacturers inks that are suitable even for tough-to-print, high-performance sports apparel made from most natural and synthetic fabrics, including elastic fabrics.

Silicone textile printing inks are fast-curing and easily pigmented. They offer high elongation and a soft, non-tacky handle. In addition, Dow Corning's cost-effective inks provide optimal coverage and allow for a variety of unique special effects.

With heightened consumer concern regarding environmental impact, silicone textile printing inks are an ideal solution because they contain no organotin, phthalate, formaldehyde, PVC or solvents.

Dow Corning offers a comprehensive selection of proven silicone-based performance enhancers and process aids for textiles and is breaking new ground in the realm of eco innovation. In addition to materials, the company provides supportive services and solutions tailored to the specific business and sustainability needs of the global textiles industry.
