The ChemStik® formulation contains a complete finishing chemistry package: monomers, cross-linkers, adhesion agents, and optional additional attribute components, such as anti-microbial or UV-absorbing, plus the trigger required to start polymerization and permanently bond the polymer to your fabric when it is thermally cured. Plus, it is environmentally-safe, produces very little waste and is cost competitive with your current wet finishing process.
After fabric or footwear coating, next the treated roll goods, fully-finished apparel or footwear, are thermally cured. Exposure to heat releases free radicals from the polymerization initiator that is added to the ChemStik formula, triggering the polymerization process. The crosslinkers also bond the polymer to the fabric through a free radical polymerization process.
At GTT, we design and sell the premixed chemical formulation designed for plasma or thermal curing.
