Problem: Fire- and water- repellent fabric finishes may compromise on softness and comfort.

Solution: DowCorning® is now offering DS-9000 Eco Repel™, an eco-friendly multifunctional encapsulated silicone additive for technical textiles. Jointly developed with DEVAN Chemicals, this technology allows apparel manufacturers to increase softness and hydrophobicity on existing flame-retardant finishes without impacting flame retardancy. Applications may include mattress ticking, tenting, canvas, upholstery and protective clothing.
