Multi-functional polymers in laundry detergents
PREVENT STAINING AND GRAYINGWith the products from the TexCare® series, Clariant has developed solutions which meet high sustainability standards and function in several different ways: They remove stains even at low temperatures, protect against new soiling, reduce graying and improve wearing comfort by increasing moisture absorption. The products are made of multi-functional polymers and work especially well when used for garments with a high percentage of polyester fibers.
Protective layer increases with every wash and keeps dirt from being redepositedDuring the washing process, the TexCare® molecules attach to the similarly structured synthetic fibers. A thin film forms on the garment, which remains in place even after washing and drying and prevents stains from penetrating deep into the fabric.
During the next wash, surfactants easily remove the particles of dirt resting on the film, which increases with every wash. This film repels particulate soils and traps them in the wash water, preventing their redeposition and thus the graying of light-colored garments.
Due to the hydrophilic film of TexCare® molecules, clothes also feel smoother on the skin since the fabric can absorb sweat better.
