GE Magnasoft™ Enhancers Offer Performance Softness

General Electric (GE) Co.’s Wilton, Conn.-based Advanced Materials business has released its latest textile enhancers — Magnasoft™ Derma NT and Magnasoft JSS — which are based on its patented linear block-copolymer technology platform.

The products are highly stable and easily formulated, and offer good hydrophilic performance while adding silkiness and fullness, according to GE Advanced Materials.

N I Teijin Shoji USA Inc., New York City, uses GEs Magnasoft JSS textile enhancer in its Julia Jennings Collection of linens.

Magnasoft Derma NT makes textiles more durable to laundering by coating the surface and penetrating the interior of the fiber. The product may be used in exhaust, padding, overflow, jet-flow and winch processes.

According to the manufacturer, Magnasoft JSS is a self-emulsifying, dilutive enhancer for cellulose-based fabrics that remains stable in temperatures up to 100°C and pHs up to 14. Magnasoft JSS may be used in overflow, jet-flow, padding and winch applications.
