Products for making textile auxiliaries a little better


Backed up by its technical know-how and history in the synthesis of organomodified siloxanes and specialty organic surfactants, we have a unique and strong position as a specialty surfactant producer. Our varied and extremely specialized product range is able to serve any textile formulator with valuable specialty raw materials.

Based on surface science, Evonik is actively developing new molecules which can offer special application properties by themselves or in formulations. Our ability to run preliminary tests in our Tech Service Labs, as well as our customer orientation creates the best basis for a strong partnership with textile formulators.
For fiber finishes, we offer ester and amide based lubricants, organic wetting agents, siloxane based lubricants/slip aids, cohesion agents and antistats.
