The Silicone Advantage – High Performance. High Value. Low Applied Cost.

Compared to organic materials, silicon-based textile and leather enhancers and process aids perform better, last longer and, consequently, add more value to apparel, home furnishings, industrial textiles and nonwovens. They are also extremely cost-effective to use.

With silicones from Dow Corning, you receive:

  • Multiple benefits from a single product
  • Effectiveness at low concentrations for low applied cost
  • The ability to withstand harsh textiles and leather processing environments
  • Superior resistance to temperature extremes, moisture, chemical and mechanical stress, and sunlight (UV radiation) degradation
  • An excellent environmental health and safety profile
