Finish CM

Finish CM

FINISH CM is a liquid designed to bulk cotton fiber and cotton blends to prevent the penetration of resins through the substrate. It is a non-reactive product and does not harm adhesion. It is best used with solvent-based coatings, but works well with water-based emulsions.

Product Information Sheet
Product Label

FINISH CM is substantive. When used to prevent penetration, begin with 3% to 7% by weight of the bath. The amount needed will depend on the type and density of the fabric. Higher concentrations of FINISH CM can be made if lower weight pickup is desired.

FINISH CM can be combined with softeners, lubricants, or anti-curl agents to provide the hand and properties desired.


Apply by either pad or spray so that application is even and total wet pickup is 75%-100% of weight of fabric.

Dry the fabric before dipping in coating. You may find that the temperatures required to dry the fabric thoroughly may need to be increased due to the nature of the product. FINISH CM will not scorch, chalk nor dust.
