SHAPING UP TEXTILES FOR LONGER LIFE
In order to provide moldings, filters or sailcloth, among others, with durable resilience properties, the textile industry uses crosslinkers. These melamine-based resins give temperature-independent duroplastic effects resulting in water-insoluble thermostable hardening, which allows dimensional stability for temperatures up to 100° C (180° F) and above. Our Cassurit® crosslinkers maintain a glossy or mechanically modified surface and also improve durability in setting and molding of nonwoven, and stiffening of technical textiles. They are also employed as an additive to improve durability when used as a fixing agent for polymer dispersions, reactive flame retardants or in combination with fluorocarbons for permanent water and oil repellent applications, as well as to improve water column properties.
Range of crosslinking agents, filling and stiffening agents, and bounding and deformation agents suitable for synthetic fibers and nonwovens.
