Finishing and Coating

DyStar offers a wide range of excellent finishing products for softening up to functional effects like easy care, water and oil repellency, hydrophilicity, moisture management and wellness effects for all kind of fibers and application processes. The high performance of the finishes is always in line with the requirements for color fastness and ecological demands like formaldehyde and PFOA limitations and regulations. Our portfolio for textile coating provides solutions for extraordinary effects for technical textiles and fashionable fabrics. An attractive range of binders based on various polymers combined with selected fluorocarbons, anti-static agents and flame retardants is the key for a technical solution desired by our customers. Our unique ceramic compound Evo Xen KD for highly protective coatings is a perfect solution for work wear and technical textiles with outstanding abrasion resistance.

Glyoxals

Raw material for textile resins for shrinkage control and wrinkle-free performance. In addition, glyoxal is used for a number of applications in the paper, chemical and
pharmaceutical industries.

Finishing product brands: Freechem

Waxes

Carnapol® waxes are synthetic waxes made from a amide, and are similar in physical properties to some of the natural waxes, notably, Carnauba. They have a macroscopically noncrystalline structure, as does Carnauba wax. The wax breaks with a conchoidal fracture. It can be blended with all natural waxes and paraffin waxes.

Silicones

Silicone chemistry offers unique properties for coatings arising from the remarkable backbone character and functional groups of silicones. Our specialty silicones can impart just the right properties, providing enhanced wetting and leveling, anti-blocking and tack resistance, surface lubricity for slip and mar resistance, water resistance, and adhesion. DyStar’s specialty silicones are useful in solvent and waterborne coatings systems. They can be blended into acrylic stains and paints to provide water resistance. DyStar’s innovations in this area are opening new possibilities, including enhanced appearance and adhesion in primer systems. Masil® silicone products are valued for their flexibility in formulation while providing the key attributes you need for success.
