Ciba Launches New Silicone Softener

Ciba Specialty Chemicals, Switzerland, has introduced ULtrATEX® FMW, a silicone softener designed for white textiles such as intimate apparel, sportswear, T-shirts, business shirts and bed linens. The new softener is applied by exhaustion or padding, which imparts exceptional softness to natural and/or regenerated cellulose, man-made fibers and their blends, according to the company.

"With its innovative new silicone structure, Ultratex FMW ensures a so-far-unattained combination of super-soft, smooth handle with ultra-high whiteness," said Eric Marohn, global head of the company's Textile Effects segment.

Other benefits include enhanced absorbency; reduced static charge in some instances; increased fabric elasticity and resilience; an increase in burst and tear strength, and abrasion resistance; and high washfastness; among others.
