Textile Coating

Functionality of technical textiles

Silicones are an essential element in providing more functionality in modern, high-tech fibers as well as in industrial textiles. A high-quality silicone coating such as that found in sportswear provides water repellency and breathability, or delivers air impermeability and UV resistance in sporting equipment such as sailboat sails. Tailored to your specific application, we offer you a large selection with ELASTOSIL® solid and liquid silicone rubber grades and solvent-based silicone rubber dispersions. In addition, we offer specialized additives that enable standard products to be customized to meet your unique requirements. Our silicone products can be processed with all common coating techniques and can be applied (for example) via blade coating and extrusion.
