Control contamination of textile chemical formulations and deterioration and discoloration of yarn, fiber, and fabrics

Textiles and Nonwovens

Left unprotected, fibers, yarns, and fabrics used in textile manufacturing and processing can become subject to bacteria, fungi or algae that cause spotting, decay, deterioration, odors and discoloration – often leading to shorter shelf life, unwanted waste and disposal of inventories.

Textile chemical formulations can also become subject to microbial degradation, causing foul odors, rancidity, and pH fluctuations, which can lead to discoloration and deterioration of fibers and fabrics.

Many textiles and finishes contain substances that support microbial growth, and textile specialties, when diluted, can produce favorable environments for microbial growth including bacteria, mold, fungi, yeast and algae.

Our industrial antimicrobial preservative technologies help prevent spoilage of spinning emulsions and finishing solutions in textile applications as well as help prevent early spoilage, odors, deterioration and/or decay and discoloration of finished textile products.

Our portfolio of solutions provides long-lasting protection for spinning finish oil, water-based auxiliaries, antibacterial fabrics and flame retardancy.
