Typical properties:

  • non-halogenated oligomer.
  • % P: approx. 11%.
  • Water Solubility: insoluble.
  • Easily dispersible.
  • Effective FR additive in a variety of synthetic fabrics.
  • Supplied as a low viscosity liquid (Viscosity: 600 mPa.s @25oC).
  • Easy incorporation in common acrylic binder systems.
  • Softening effect on binder films.
  • Compatibility with most textile finishing chemicals.
  • Ability to achieve soak/laundry durable FR fabrics.
  • Opportunity for no ATO for synthetics and cotton blends in combination with BFRs.

TexFRon 5001 is dispersed in water with common wetting/dispersing agents and has outstanding performance as a wash durable finish after application.

Once incorporated in the aqueous binder system, it is easy to handle and can be adjusted for different
foaming, hydrophobic/hydrophilic, adhesion, viscosity properties, etc. It may be applied by a variety of application techniques including spray, pad, print, coat, foam and brush. It is most suitable for polyester, acrylic blends, nylon blends and cotton/polyester blend fabrics.

TexFRon 5001 is highly compatible with most common textile formulation additives such as: cross-linkers, softeners, UV inhibitors, antimicrobials, pigment dispersions, etc.
