HeiQ, a leader in textile innovation making effective, durable, and high-performance textile effects in the market, is displaying its HeiQ Fresh FFL (Fresh For Long), a 100 per cent bio-based odour control technology for the sportswear and intimate segment, at ISPO Munich, which is being held from January 28 to 31, 2018, in Germany, in hall C3, booth 402.

The company continues to redefine freshness for textile by introducing the world’s first bio-based, non-antimicrobial, non-silver-based textile odour control technology – HeiQ Fresh FFL, which is based on a biopolymer derived from 100 per cent renewable source. This wash-resistant, biodegradable textile finishing stops bad smell before it emerges on textile.

HeiQ Fresh FFL is a non-antimicrobial alternative to traditional odour control in textiles. This sustainable, fully biomass-derived Amino-Sugar-Polymer functions by binding proteins and other sweat components that can cause odour. The HeiQ Fresh FFL biopolymer supports ready removal of these sweat components during home laundering. As a non-antimicrobial solution to odour control the regulatory obligations normally associated with biocides are of no relevance when applying HeiQ Fresh FFL on garments and other textile products.

Ralf Mundinger, HeiQ’s head of technology application said, “Odour control efficacy is maximised with the correct technology-fibre match, as well as the right application of the technology in the textile finishing process. While most odour-control textile finishing target polyester, the application is often limited to padding, which is not utilised for textiles that seamless garments are made of HeiQ Fresh FFL can be used on both cellulosic and synthetic fibres.”

Participants in a multi-day wear trial confirmed that the odour control efficacy of HeiQ Fresh FFL is much better than the best silver antimicrobial textile finishing on the market (control). At their booth at ISPO Munich, HeiQ welcomes all visitors to learn more about the product, not only by asking and listening, but actually using their own noses in sniffing the differences between HeiQ Fresh FFL and other odour control finishing.
