Silicone technology has revolutionized the textile industry starting from creating functional fabrics, intelligent textiles to textile
manufacturing process. It has always been one of the main factors to satisfy the demands and requirements of the customers
in sports and apparel applications. Even though liquid silicone process is widely used in the textile industry, but it comes with
many drawbacks like material handling and liquid silicone penetrating into textile fabric and consequently altering its
properties. Nevertherless, Compo-SiL®, a patented technology by General Silicones, not only overcomes these drawbacks,
but also delivers extra values added through roll-to-roll process and textile binding capability for the same demands.
The trend of new apparels & accessories from fashion & clothing industry requires new raw materials like
Compo-SiL® for better performance and durability.
Anti Slip strip
Compo-SiL® can be applied on the inner layer of underwear, tights or any
intimate clothing as anti-slip strip. The unique skin-friendly properties of
silicone can keep users away from allergies even after long-time wearing, which
is ideal for sensitive skin. These strips have excellent elasticity and resilience,
which prevents the garments from deforming after long-time stretching.
Heat Transfer Decoration
Compo-SiL® is digitally printable through roll-to-roll process, thus it can
perfectly present extremely detailed design. And unlike silk screen printing,
size limitation is no longer the problem in the composition of your design.
After printing and die-cut, it can be heat-pressed on apparel to become a
glamorous decoration with excellent silicone surface texture. Moreover, the
silicone surface will not degrade after frequent wash and sun drying, therefore,
it could always enhance the good quality of the apparel.
