Norway-based chemical company Elkem is set to participate in Techtextil North America (NA) 2023, the 20th edition of the continent’s dedicated show for technical textiles and nonwovens. The event will be held from May 10-12, 2023 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia. Elkem will be exhibiting at booth number 2211.

Elkem is a fully integrated world leader in silicones and has a team of professionals that recognises that technical textiles demand constant innovation to meet the evolving needs of society. The company’s team has brought silicone solutions to meet technical textile requirements, from increased automotive safety to improved comfort in sports and leisure wear, Elkem said in a press release.

High-end materials such as Elkem’s Bluesil and Silbione textile coating solutions are the materials of choice because they are versatile, easy to process, and provide dynamic performance features and durability required by technical textiles. 

Silicones enhance textile performance in airbags, high temperature and ablative coatings, inks, wearables, belting, medical, architectural, protective, and smart fabrics. Elkem will present textile coating solutions and new developments for these applications and more at Techtextil NA 2023.
