Fashion always starts with a piece of fabric that is one of the important components. Fabric is the basic of making the outfit determining the overall style and beauty of your dress. A designer picks out the fabric according to the type and purpose of the outfit. Now, Compo-SiL® announces we have been selected to be on the platform by international online database MatériO.
While aircraft and railway vehicles are designed, safety for staff and passengers is the top priority. Safety levels have been increased continually over the years and today all materials used must fulfill the highest passenger safety requirements.
The average yacht is replaced every ten to twenty years. Yacht Upholstery gets exposed to sun, wind, rain, and other weather elements. It’ll probably start to crack, tear or fade in time and need replacing. Deciding which material to use on the yacht can be hesitating, but with the eco-friendly material Compo-SiL®, you can find a marine upholstery that is ideal for both your demand and sustainability. If you’re wondering what marine upholstery is environmentally friendly, here Compo-SiL® vegan leather can help.
Traditionally, Silicone coating on textile for anti-slip or non-slip fabrics are being used for various usage and applications like undergarments, lingerie, athletic and sportswear and smart textiles. However, this technology has its own limitations. Compo-SiL® technology opens new possibilities for integrating cured elastic anti-slip silicone with fabric. Elongation, elastic properties, and softness of the material can easily be tuned as per the needs of the customers.
Leather products have been used for thousands of years. The demand for leather products are high that even leather materials are made from plastic and other compounds. However, as global awareness of environmental protection rises, people have been looking for alternative eco-friendly leather materials for decades, and Compo-SiL® silicone based vegan leather is one of the alternatives.
The modified layer of Compo-SiL® provides the surface for digital printing using standard compatible inks. Using existing equipment, manufacturers can digitally print on the layer without the need for modification of their production processes. If appropriate, the printed side of the Compo-SiL® silicone rubber is used in roll-to-roll production to achieve textile binding and lamination using HMA adhesives.
Achieving “adhesion for silicone rubber” with HMA is difficult due to silicone’s low surface energy. Allowing HMA to act as an interlayer adhesive, the Compo-SiL® silicone rubber offers a deciding innovation for the HMA industry. HMA users can now take advantage not only two bind two dissimilar and lower surface energy material (silicone) but also getting various benefits that silicone rubber provides.
Compo-SiL® technology has been successful in enhancing the silicone adhesion problems by having an ultra-thin polyurathane modified layer above silicone that enhances the surface energy to 38 dynes/cm. Although there are other solutions available for silicone adhesion like plasma techniques and other silicone adhesives, however these are highly expensive and complex solutions which requires great precision, man power and may present environmental or safety issues.
