Technical Textiles

Silicones can be used for coating nearly any type of fabric. Formulating the coatings takes a great deal of experience and creativity and a wealth of knowledge about the various chemical and processing relationships involved. This is an area in which WACKER’s technical service excels: we will help you with the often tricky task of matching product, coating system and substrate to obtain the best results.
