Tanatex launches new FR chemical for polyester fabrics
Mar '15
Netherlands based textiles speciality chemicals marketer, Tanatex Chemicals has launched Express FR; a flame retardant concept for PES.

According to a Tanatex press release, ensuring flame retardant properties as a PES is difficult, time-consuming and involves several processing steps to fulfill the requirements.

“In many cases the necessary special property is added during a finishing process after the actual dyeing process and since this process cannot always be executed in-house, it is often executed by a third party,” it added.

When using Express FR, one can simply add the special flame retardant product in the dyebath, and no additional finishing process is necessary, hence, reduction of water, energy and time.

“Express FR makes the development of flame retardant articles easier, giving more flexibility and finally putting you in control,” Tanatex informed.

The main component of the concept is Flamegard PX, a novel product, especially designed for polyester treatments in exhaust to obtain the, so often requested, flame retardant properties.

“Tanasperse OLG-PX, a special emulsifying/dispersing product, is incorporated for optimal distribution,” Tanatex concluded by saying.

Tanatex Chemicals develops innovative textile processing solutions, ranging from pre-treatment to finishing, based on trends and demands in technical textiles and carpet processing industry.

Through a worldwide network of offices, agencies and distributors, Tanatex supplies its global customers with quality wet processing products and provides a high level of technical service.

For over 50 years, the company has proven to be a reliable partner in solving its customer’s challenges providing them competitive advantages and fit-for-purpose chemical solutions. (AR)
