Ciba, Milliken Products Achieve Oeko-Tex Standard

Ciba® Flovan® CGN, Pyrovatex® CP and Pyrovatex CP-LF flame retardant finishes from Ciba Specialty Chemicals, Switzerland, and textiles treated with them, have qualified for Oeko-Tex Standard 100. The finishes have been added to Oeko-Texs active chemical substances list.

Designed for cotton and used in protective clothing applications, Pyrovatex CP and CP-LF finishes are compatible with a variety of other treatments, such as oil- and water-repellent finishes, and are washfast. Garments made using these finishes can be multifunctional, and they shrink very little when exposed to heat and flame.

Flovan CGN, designed for wool, cellulose, polyester, polypropylene and polyethylene fibers and blends used in automotive and decorative fabrics, also is compatible with numerous other treatments.

The odor-control technology used in Milliken & Company's VISAEndurance fabric suitable for activewear, among other applications recently achieved Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification.

The silver-based inorganic odor-control technology used in Spartanburg-based Milliken & Company's VISAEndurance fabric is the first of its kind to achieve Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification as an accepted active ingredient. The fabric features perspiration-activated odor-control properties, as well as VISA soil-release and moisture-management properties that are durable for the life of the end-product. Applications include activewear and medical wound dressings, among others.
