Turning product visions into a reality – Finishing
Finishing is the “grand finale” of the process chain. We help fashion designers to make their ideas materialize and garment manufacturers to gain a clear edge in production. The market is increasingly calling for textile finishes with specific added effects: Where convenience is the main objective, easier care, enhanced durability, and improved comfort greatly facilitate focused target-group marketing. As in any good relationship, the chemistry has to be right. And we make sure it is: The finishing of textiles for special wearability, usage, processability, or fashion features is a question of precision chemistry.
Products and application techniques for any desired effect
Developing products that answer market needs is one thing; application technology know-how is something else. We offer both – and more. Permanent research and development guarantee not only high-quality finishing effects, but also the safety of the products in application. What we offer you is ideal formulations to make your product visions a reality: Smooth or soft, glossy or matt, wash and wear, crease-resistant, shrink-proof, dirt and/or water repellent. The notion of the ideal fabric will vary depending on the culture and tastes of the target group. With Pulcra Chemicals at your side, everything becomes possible in achieving the desired effect for virtually any fabric. In finishing, we are frontrunners worldwide. Exceptional specialties include silicone softeners and fluorocarbon resins for stainproofing.
Best performance at all levels
Our silicone softeners go by the name of Adasil®. Whether they are used alone or in combination with other products, they perceptibly improve the feel and appearance of textiles. Like Adalin®, our special polyethylene dispersions, they stand for elegant, super-soft touch, brighter luster, reduced pilling, and good washfastness. Another area of intensive research is the wool finish. Based on our experience in wool pretreatment we can equip your wool products with ever-better washing properties. But not just consumers benefit from this. Even during production, finishing generates distinct advantages through improved sewability and easier garment make-up – to make your operations more economical.
