Innovations from Clariant for textile chemicals & dyes sector

Clariant continues to add new products to its portfolio of textile chemicals and textile dyes to achieve outstanding effects on textiles.

The emphasis in the development of these latest ranges has been on both increased efficiency and performance, in addition to contributing to increasingly eco-conscious processing for textile manufacturers.

Finishing Appretan E
The company's latest Appretan E range of dispersions, for example, is well-suited to the finishing of technical fabrics such as nonwovens and coated textiles, in achieving required performance properties while also imparting water, alcohol and solvent resistance.

Appretan E polymers comply with the 'zero formaldehyde' requirements stipulated by Japan Law 112, Öko-tex and the EU's EcoLabel, among others, with less than 20 ppm detectable on the substrate.

Appretan E products are fully effective without the use of any external crosslinker such as melamine formaldehyde resin, which would be a strong additional source of free formaldehyde. They are also APEO free, in compliance with the European 2003/53/EC directive. Appretan E polymer dispersions can be easily combined with other chemicals such as flame retardants, fluorotelomers and thickeners for achieving additional properties during application.

Hydroperm ECO liq
Also formaldehyde free is Hydroperm ECO, a new Clariant hydrophilizing agent with softener properties for providing moisture management finishes to shirting, outdoor clothing and sportswear made from cotton, polyamide and blends. Hydroperm ECO significantly improves the transport of moisture, wicking and surface evaporation, while imparting a soft handle to knitted and woven fabrics. At the same time, it will not impair the degree of whiteness of optically brightened goods, but is not recommended for use with polyester fabrics.

Solusoft MSJ liq
As a newly-developed silicone softener for the exhaust process on jets and other application machines with high shearing forces, Clariant's Solusoft MSJ provides an outstandingly soft and flowing hand to fabrics. Developed with modern silicone chemistry, it is nevertheless produced with the same special emulsification technique used to make Clariant's widely-used Solusoft MEJ, to achieve the effective and reliable shearing stability of the micro-emulsion.

Ceraperm SFC liq
Another special silicone compound is Ceraperm SFC, which has been developed for use with fluorocarbon products. In contrast to most other softeners, and especially existing silicones, it has no negative influence on water and oil repellency. It is recommended for use with dual action fluorocarbons such as Nuva 4200 and with soil release products like Nuva SRCN.
Ceraperm SFC provides a very soft and pleasing hand on finished knitwear goods and also improves sewing properties and helps to avoid stitching damage.

Pekoflam DPN.CN liq conc
Other new Clariant products for thefinishing sector include Pekoflam® DPN.CN. It is an organic phosphorus compound for the permanent flame-retardant finishing of cotton and cotton-rich blends. It provides excellent wash resistance and – depending on the cross linker system – is effective at up to 95°C. It is low yellowing and suitable for Öko-tex Class IV requirements.

Nuva 2065 liq
Nuva 2065 is a specifically-developed fluorocarbon for high water column and oil repellent performance on PAN (polyacrylic nitrile). To achieve maximum performance, Clariant advises the application of Nuva 2065 with its Cassurit melamine resin.
