"It ain't the heat, it's the humility."
— Yogi Berra
One of the simplest approaches to polymerizing an applied chemical treatment (often called "curing") is done just by heating the fabric. For this. the ChemStik® treatment has a thermally-triggered polymerization initiator. The initiator decomposes at a set temperature, releasing free radicals, which initiate monomer and crosslinker polymerization.
Different ChemStik formulations are typically used for different finishing treatments, and, in some cases, for different fabrics. Only several seconds of heat treatment is needed to trigger polymerization.
At GTT, we will provide the chemical mixture, the hardware and a process recipe that includes how much thermal curing is required and what temperature is required for finishing treatment requirement. This makes the transition to dry finishing painless and inexpensive.
