Dow to exhibit silicone textile printing inks at Sports Source Asia
Oct '08
Dow Corning Corporation, a leading supplier of innovative silicone solutions for the textiles industry, will exhibit and offer a presentation at Sports Source Asia. At Booth 3G20, Dow Corning will feature its silicone textile printing inks, which are durable, color-fast, and suitable even for tough-to-print, high-performance sports apparel.

Visitors to Booth 3G20 will learn how Dow Corning's solutions provide competitive advantages. Silicone textile printing inks are heat-resistant, fast-curing, and easily pigmented. They offer high elongation and a soft, non-sticky handle. In addition, Dow Corning's cost-effective inks provide optimal coverage with only three layers, compared to the 12-15 layers required with typical inks.

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

Complementing the information available at Booth 3G20, Dow Corning Textiles Industry Technical Leader Mr. Peter Wu will present “An Innovation in Garment Printing – Print Your Life with Silicon Screen Printing.”

During the presentation Mr. Wu will discuss the company's innovative silicone textile printing ink technology, including the features and benefits associated with using the inks. This event will take place at 12:30 p.m., October 29, in Hall 6's Activity Zone.

At Sports Source Asia's first edition in 2007, organizers estimated 6,500 buyers from 90 countries and regions attended Asia's first trade sourcing show for sporting goods, equipment, and apparel. Sports Source Asia 2008 will take place October 28-31, 2008, at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong.

Dow Corning offers a comprehensive selection of proven silicon-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.
