The manufacturer of textile chemicals and dyes, Huntsman Textile Effects, Singapore, and chemical companyThe Chemours Company FC, LLC, Wilmington, DE/USA, have agreed to expand their long-term alliance in the area of durable water repellence (DWR).
By combining the strengths of both companies in innovation, technical support and marketing, the expanded cooperation unlocks the full potential of the alliance to develop and deliver new, sustainable DWR solutions and chemistry. The alliance will cover different aspects of the value chain including research, marketing, technical support and manufacturing.
Together, Huntsman and Chemours have worked to lead the textile industry’s transition from long-chain water repellent products to more environmentally friendly short-chain chemistry and, more recently, non-fluorinated chemistry. The collaboration has resulted in new DWR solutions that deliver on performance and sustainability.
