Clariant & Schoeller to market nano-finishing technology for textile ind

Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals and Schoeller Technologies AG, a globally active licensing company for innovative textile technologies announced a strategic partnership for the nanotechnology-based NanoSphere textile finish.

Schoeller Technologies AG owns the patents and is responsible for NanoSphere marketing and branding activities. Clariant's Textile Business is taking over production, sales and distribution worldwide, transfer of know-how and quality assurance towards new and existing customers, predominantly textile mills.

NanoSphere is based on nanotechnology. Textiles with a NanoSphere finish present a naturally self-cleaning effect. That way, the material repels liquids and dirt. Water splashes, but also stains from ketchup, red wine or oil, for example, simply run off the nano-surface. The effect remains even after frequent washing.

“In Clariant, we have found the right partner to market and further develop NanoSphere applications,” said Hans-Jürgen Hübner, Chief Executive Officer of Schoeller Technologies AG. “Clariant's expertise and technical know-how in textile chemicals, worldwide distribution and its support network will allow us to provide customers everywhere with the benefits offered by NanoSphere on a local basis.”

Philippe Royer, Head of Clariant's Textile, Leather and Paper Division added “Clariant is always on the look-out for promising new technology and we have long been interested in the possibilities of nanotechnology. The success of NanoSphere proves that completely new functions for consumers can be transferred to textiles using nanotechnology.”
