Dow Corning Corporation will highlight its innovative silicone solutions for the textile industry, including DEFLEXION impact-protection technology and Dow Corning brand Silicone Textile Printing Inks, at the Northwest Apparel and Footwear Materials Show this September.

At Booth 714, the company will showcase its patent pending DEFLEXION impact-protection technology. Based on silicone technology, the DEFLEXION platforms are engineered for protective equipment and apparel in a flexible, breathable form.

As a performance textile and impact-absorbing material in one, DEFLEXION technology is designed to protect without the added bulk and stiffness of traditional padding. It can be cut and sewn directly into clothing, eliminating the need to insert uncomfortable padding.

“DEFLEXION from Dow Corning offers premium impact protection that is flexible, breathable and washable,” said Dr. Liz Mallen, Dow Corning Textile business development manager. “Overall, designers and consumers are getting far more choices. Unlike bulky, hard-armor systems, DEFLEXION provides silicone-based textile technologies that are very comfortable to wear in terms of fit, freedom of movement and temperature control.”

In addition, visitors to Dow Corning's booth can learn about Dow Corning Silicone Textile Printing Inks, which are durable and suitable for tough-to-print, high-performance apparel.

Dow Corning's fast-curing, easily pigmented silicone screen printing solutions provide competitive advantages for high-performance apparel.

“The inks offer high elongation and a soft, non-tacky handle,” said Charlie Zimmer, Dow Corning Textile global marketing manager. “Additionally, the cost-effective inks provide optimal coverage and allow for a variety of unique special effects.”

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.

The 35th semiannual Northwest Apparel and Footwear Materials Show will take place Sept. 14 and 15 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, USA. The event highlights natural and synthetic leathers, fabrics, prints, accessories, apparel and footwear components, and sewn products industry services.

DEFLEXION from Dow Corning offers a range of impact-protection technologies that allow for the easy creation of high-performance protective apparel and equipment. DEFLEXION technologies focus on providing exceptional comfort, enhanced fit, superior freedom of movement and due to the unique stability of silicones, performance over a broad range of temperatures. Unlike traditional soft armor protection, DEFLEXION products are able to achieve high levels of protection, while remaining comfortable and stylish.
