Textile Finishing

Explore RawSource’s cutting-edge textile finishing solutions designed to transform fabrics into high-performance, durable, and sustainable materials.

Textile Finishing Solutions: Elevate Fabrics with RawSource Specialty Chemicals

Our specialty chemicals offer a wide range of finishing effects, from softness and wrinkle resistance to water repellency and flame retardancy. With RawSource’s expertise, enhance the quality and functionality of textiles for diverse applications.

Why choose Silicones for textiles printing inks?

Transitioning from PVC-Based Inks to Eco-Friendly Textile Coating Silicones

Textile producers have opted to reduce the utilization of PVC resins and phase out ink systems reliant on plasticizers, primarily due to environmental concerns and potential discomfort upon skin contact. Our Textile Coating Silicones prove to be highly suitable replacements for these materials, providing formulators with inks that not only offer aesthetic appeal but are also skin-friendly and environmentally conscious.

Softness and Comfort

Dihydrogenated tallow dimethyl ammonium chloride, being a cationic surfactant, imparts a positive charge to the fabric. This positive charge helps neutralize the negative charges on the fabric surface, reducing friction and stiffness.

Water Repellent

Achieving water repellency in textiles is accomplished by applying Fluorocarbon-based Compounds. These compounds, containing fluorinated polymers, create a hydrophobic layer on the fabric’s surface, preventing water penetration. The fluorine atoms in the molecules repel water, providing durable water repellency. This treatment is especially valuable for outdoor and activewear, ensuring textiles remain resistant to moisture while maintaining breathability. Reapplication may be necessary over time for sustained effectiveness.

Color Fastness

To enhance color fastness in textiles, “Metal Complex Dyes” are often employed. These dyes create stable bonds with the textile fibers, ensuring the durability of the color. The application process involves the careful selection and application of these dyes, followed by fixation and washing steps. This method enhances the resistance of the textile to color fading, providing long-lasting and vibrant hues. The specific metal complex dye and dyeing procedures may vary based on the type of textile and the desired level of color fastness.

Stain Resistance

Stain resistance in textiles is often achieved using chemical treatments that create a protective barrier on the fabric. One common chemical used for this purpose is “Fluorocarbon-based Compounds.” These compounds form a hydrophobic and oleophobic layer on the textile, repelling both water and oil-based stains. The application involves treating the fabric with the fluorocarbon compound, which adheres to the fibers, creating a barrier against stains. This process provides textiles with effective stain resistance, making them more resistant to liquid spills and stains during use.

Antibacterial and Antimicrobial

To impart antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to textiles, the commonly employed type of chemical is “Silver-based Compounds” such as silver nanoparticles or silver ions. These compounds have inherent antimicrobial properties and can be incorporated into textiles during the manufacturing process. The silver-based compounds work by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and microbes, contributing to a reduction in odors and the overall maintenance of hygiene in textile products. The specific silver compound and application method may vary based on the textile type and intended use.

Environmental Considerations

To address environmental concerns in textile production, industries are adopting sustainable practices. This involves using eco-friendly fibers like organic cotton, employing low-impact dyes to minimize water pollution, and implementing water and energy-efficient processes. Recycling initiatives and reduced chemical usage, alongside certifications like GOTS, contribute to waste reduction and safer practices. Incorporating biodegradable materials and fostering transparency in sourcing further enhance the industry’s commitment to sustainability.
