Momentive-Kothis to develop high performance athletic gear
Nov '10
Momentive Performance Materials, a global leader in specialty chemicals and materials, has collaborated with Kothis, a technology specialist for textile printing applications, to develop high performance football gloves for optimal grip and control. Gloves used in American football help create a traction that makes it easier for players to grasp onto the football, especially in cold or wet weather conditions.

“It is always gratifying to collaborate with customers on new product innovations and enhancements,” said Holger Albrecht, Global Marketing Director, Consumer, at Momentive. “We have a wealth of experience providing custom solutions, leveraging our long-standing leadership in silicone elastomer technology.”

Momentive's custom elastomers are made-to-order, ready-to-use silicone rubber compounds that are produced to meet customers' varying but specific cost, durability and performance standards for a variety of applications. Momentive's custom portfolio is extensive and represents some of the most recent silicone innovations used in the aerospace, construction, consumer product, electronics, healthcare and other industries.

“We could not find the right solution among existing silicone materials that could meet the high standards of our customer, so we were very pleased when Momentive began working with us to develop a custom grade liquid silicone rubber with high tear strength,” said Y.J. Joung, President of Kothis. “Momentive's custom solution helped deliver long-lasting features, such as stickiness and durability, which our customer wanted in the final product.”
