Archroma to host daily 'Innovation Sessions' at ITMA 2015
Nov '15
Archroma, a producer of colour and specialty chemicals will organise daily 'Innovation Sessions' at ITMA 2015, which will be hosted by its textile experts.

“Textile experts would be present at ITMA 2015 to showcase solutions that combine performance, cost optimization and responsible textile production,” an Archroma press release stated.

The 'Innovation Sessions' will take place every day at Hall 8 - Booth F101 at 11:00 to allow visitors to take an in-depth look at what some of these innovations will mean to the textile industry.

There will be two separate sessions on four different topics which include; Sustainability & One Way on November 12 and 16, Earthcolors on November 13 and 17, Inkpresso on November 14 and 18 and SmartRepel on November 15 and 19.

Sustainability & One Way will focus on clothing, garments or textiles that are made in a more sustainable and responsible way.

Archroma will present their engagement in favour of a more sustainable textile industry, with a deeply rooted, long-term commitment into everything they do.

The Earthcolors session will look for a way to help clothing companies and brands on their way to eco-conscious fashion.

“The result is Earthcolors, a range of products created from agricultural waste and embracing the latest in communication technology to enable transparency and traceability through the supply chain,” it added.

Archroma, together with a Swiss technology provider will introduce for the very first time at ITMA 2015 a pioneering system; Inkpresso that Archroma believes will mark a turnaround in the textile digital printing market.

According to Archroma, Inkpresso will change the way inks are supplied to digital printers as Inkpresso brings together benefits that were unattainable so far in inkjet printing.

These include; production flexibility, no shelf-life problems, a larger colour spectrum and the possibility of an individual colouristic fingerprint.

Smartrepel Hydro is Archroma's nature-friendlier protection that keeps cotton, polyester and polyamide textiles dry, which offers exceptional, durable water repellency and is not based on fluorine.

“Smartrepel Hydro produces a soft hand feel and outstanding breathability or the perfect long lasting high performance finish for weatherproof garments,” it stated. (AR)
