Huntsman Debuts AEEA-free Softeners For Apparel And Home Textiles Applications

Singapore-based Huntsman Textile Effects now offers two alternative softeners free of amino-ethyl-ethanol-amine (AEEA) for use in apparel and home textile applications.

AEEA-free MEGASOFT® JET-LF-01 and Megasoft CEC-01 comply with updated Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) standards and can be substituted for Huntsman's original Megasoft JET-LF and CEC formulations to provide the same level of performance. The new softeners also are compatible with other chemicals used with the original softeners.

The two AEEA-free Megasoft products join SAPAMINE® CSN on Huntsman's roster of AEEA-free textile softeners. Sapamine CSN, introduced in late 2012, replaces Sapamine CWS.

"We have taken a proactive approach to develop these two AEEA-free alternatives to enhance the safety of our products and are working with customers to help them make the transition," said Jay Naidu, global marketing director for Apparel, Huntsman Textile Effects.
