Water repellent and breathable
Dirt and water repellency are typical finishing effects in textiles. Our silicones offer novel opportunities in this field of application. They can be tailored to speciific requirements, thereby producing exactly the desired hydrophobic effect, by employing specific catalysts. A particular advantage here is that the textiles remain breathable despite the finish. And it goes without saying that silicones also confer the traditional soft hand on textiles. TERRASOFT® FINISH line amino-silicone textile softeners are applied as an aqueous solution. They impart high water repellency (hydrophobicity) without impairing the fabrics' ability to breathe. Compared to other water-repellent agents, they are much less affected by washing and cleaning. Additionally, they confer a soft hand on textiles.
