PolymersDevan’s history in novel polymer development and special finishes goes back almost 70 years and we continue to develop further exciting new applications.
Micro-encapsulationMicrocapsules are a great way of delivering functionality to textiles, whether that is cooling of bedding through PCM’s, enhancing a fabric with a special fragrance or providing wellness benefits directly to the skin.
Functional MasterbatchesA masterbatch is a concentrated functional additive that is added during the extrusion and spinning stage of making synthetic fibres and puts the functionality right inside the fibre.
Flame retardantsDevan has been at the forefront of the development of novel flame retardant treatments for textiles – from halogen- and metal-free topical treatments to flame retardant masterbatches.
