Showcase of Silicone Textile Printing Inks at FESPA Fabric

May '10
Dow Corning Corporation, a leading supplier of innovative silicone solutions for the textiles industry, will exhibit and present at FESPA Fabric 2010 in Germany this June. In Hall A2, Booth 110, Dow Corning will feature its Dow Corning brand Silicone Textile Printing Inks, which are durable, and suitable even for tough-to-print, high-performance sports apparel.

Visitors to Booth 110 will learn how Dow Corning's silicone screen printing solutions provide competitive advantages. Silicone textile printing inks are fast-curing and easily pigmented. They offer high elongation and a soft, non-tacky handle.

With heightened consumer concern regarding environmental impact, Dow Corning Silicone Textile Printing Inks are an ideal solution because they contain no organotin, phthalate, formaldehyde, PVC or solvents.

Complementing the information available at Booth 110, Dow Corning Textile Industry Application Engineer Bertrand Lenoble will present “Creating Amazing Effects with Silicone Inks for Textile Printing” from 3 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 22, at the Screen and Fabric Innovation Theatre.

The presentation will focus on the Silicone Textile Printing Inks developed by Dow Corning to fill the existing performance gap of traditional inks. The inks deliver performance aligned with environmental standards and meet various special design needs for customers who wish to differentiate their products from competition.

Dow Corning Silicone Textile Printing Inks are suitable for screen printing processes on most natural and synthetic fabrics, including elastic fabrics. Potential applications include swimsuits, gloves, hats, jackets, jerseys, pants, shirts, sleepwear, socks, undergarments and uniforms.

In addition to traditional screen printing, innovative Dow Corning Silicone Textile Printing Inks allow for a variety of unique special effects.

FESPA hosts the exhibition, featuring leading brands, innovators and solutions providers in the garment decoration industry. In 2009, approximately 40,000 people from more than 130 countries attended the exhibition, which showcased 800 exhibitors.

Dow Corning offers a comprehensive selection of proven silicone-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.
