Synthetic Polymers

Synthetic polymers, including zero formaldehyde acrylic patented polymers

Synthetic polymers are man-made polymers, synthetized to obtain specific characteristics or for a particular finishing effect on the garment.

On jeans, denim and dyed garments finishing, they are typically used to obtain special effects.
