A global leader in innovative solution and sustainable products, Huntsman Textile Effects, will showcase its extensive and complete end-to-end suite of solutions for technical and functional apparel and home and hospitality textiles, at Techtextil from June 21-24, 2022, in Frankfurt, Germany.
The solutions to be showcased by Huntsman include resource-saving solutions, innovative dyes, revolutionary digital inks, high-performing and sustainable towel solutions, high-performance flame-retardants and innovative odour-control solutions.
Another innovation to be showcased by Huntsman includes AviTera Se, a revolutionary technology that has the lowest environmental impact during dyeing of polyester-cellulosic (PES-CO) blends. It combines alkali-clearable TerasilW/WW disperse dyes and Avitera Se reactive dyes to cut processing time from around nine hours to just six. This helps mills reduce the water and energy required for production by up to 50 per cent and increase output by up to 25 per cent or more. Avitera Se Fast also delivers outstanding wet-fastness to ensure that sportswear will not bleed or stain during home laundering, or while in storage or transit.
Continuing its long-standing partnership with Chemours, Huntsman will also present eco-friendly finishes repelling water and stains to help garments look new for longer. Teflon EcoElite with Zelan R3 technology is the industry’s first renewably sourced water-repellent finish. It contains 63 per cent plant-based materials and exceeds performance levels possible with traditional fluorinated technologies, offering excellent water repellency and durability while preserving breathability.
