Wrinkle-free. Easy care. Stain or moisture resistant. Oh, and it has to look good too. These are the features consumers look for in the clothes and home furnishings they buy. They seek a soft fabric that won’t require a lot of extra care. Or they may require a durable textile that will stand up to a rugged work environment and still perform wash after wash. Our customers – the textile mills that produce these fabrics – are looking for a chemicals partner that can help deliver these features across the globe.


With more than five decades of service to the textile industry, OMNOVA Solutions is a leading global supplier of value-added finishing and coating technologies and services for cellulosic and blended woven as well as knitted fabrics.
