May 2004
Indian Textile Journal;May2004, Vol. 114 Issue 8, p116
This article deals with the silicone-modified organic coating technology developed by Dow Corning Corp. in May 2004. The new technology is a novel material that provides synergistic performance characteristics of both silicone and organic components in a textile coating material. The key attributes of the material are high barrier resistance to gasses, as well as being flexible and resilient while retaining its properties over a wide temperature range and for extended periods of time with humidity aging. The material is provided as an environmentally friendly, one-part, water-based emulsion delivery system. Silicon-based textile coating products from Dow Corning provide a wide range of performance characteristics. They offer protection against extreme temperatures, ultra-violet and weathering, resistance to water, and a wide variety of chemicals, as well as providing good release properties, and in some cases, flame retardancy. Dow Corning provides performance-enhancing solutions to meet the diverse needs of more than 25,000 customers worldwide. Offering more than 7,000 products and services, Dow Corning is a global leader in silicon-based materials.
