During a world-level competition this summer, at least five global sports teams will wear special uniforms manufactured by a top sportswear brand. The uniforms use innovative Dow Corning® Silicone Textile Printing Inks, providing players with durable screenprinted designs that look great, feel soft and don’t crack, fade or run.
Dow Corning, a leading supplier of silicone solutions for the textiles industry, is able to provide athletic apparel manufacturers inks that are suitable even for tough-to-print, high-performance sports apparel made from most natural and synthetic fabrics, including elastic fabrics.
Silicone textile printing inks are fast-curing and easily pigmented. They offer high elongation and a soft, non-tacky handle. In addition, Dow Corning’s cost-effective inks provide optimal coverage and allow for a variety of unique special effects.
With heightened consumer concern regarding environmental impact, silicone textile printing inks are an ideal solution because they contain no organotin, phthalate, formaldehyde, PVC or solvents.
