Pursuing Enhanced Functionality and Durability in Textiles while Prioritizing the Environment
Traditionally, achieving superior functionality and durability in textiles often involved environmentally challenging materials. However, with growing environmental awareness, the industry is actively exploring alternative avenues to achieve these outcomes. Centered on environmental concerns, Kisuma’s additives prioritize eco-friendly solutions that uphold quality standards.
Textile & Lifestyle Product Applications
Spandex, a polyether-polyurea copolymer, is susceptible to chlorine degradation from swimming pools. Kisuma hydrotalcites are employed here to stabilize fibers, preserving swimwear integrity.
In the creation of artificial leather, PVC stabilizers play a crucial role. By infusing the base textile with PVC plastisol, the end product's performance is elevated, making it suitable for outdoor use owing to improved weather resistance.
As a superior acid scavenger compared to calcium stearate, DHT™-4 is employed alongside nucleators and clarifiers in creating a range of housewares. This synergy enhances physical and optical properties while curbing migration concerns.
In the production of coated fabrics like tents and tarpaulins, base textiles are immersed in PVC plastisol to enhance end-product performance for outdoor use. Kisuma's ALCAMIZER™ 1 is a perfect additive to enhance weathering properties, bolstering durability.
