Responsible use of silicone-based finishing products

The advantageous properties of silicones in the field of textile finishing are undeniable, they are state of the art, especially in the case of textile softeners. Many textiles are given important functionalities, such as a pleasant wearing comfort or good sewability, especially by finishing with silicone softeners. Other common finishing products, such as sewing thread lubricants, also obtain their optimum performance through silicone components.

Since June 27, 2018 the ECHA has included some cyclic siloxanes in its REACH candidate list for Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). The CHT Group has already published a statement on this subject.
