HeiQ, a leader in textile innovation creating some of the most effective, durable, and high-performance textile effects on the market, is set to announce the launch of a new product, HeiQ Fresh NKU, in its durable odour control HeiQ Fresh Tech technology family at Techtextil expo, to be held in Frankfurt, from May 9 to 12, 2017, in booth A24, hall 3.

Conventional odour control technologies mainly eliminate unpleasant body odour resulting from bacterial sweat metabolites. The newest product of the HeiQ Fresh Tech range, HeiQ Fresh NKU sequesters volatile malodors like the “plastic” smell of polyester or body hormones.

The working principle of superior HeiQ Fresh NKU odour control technology enables the elimination of manifold annoying volatile malodors on textiles, beyond body odour deriving from bacterial sweat metabolites: “plastic” smell of polyester generated by its monomeric components, or synthetic smell odours in new cars or exuded hormonal odour smell. HeiQ Fresh NKU rapidly sequesters these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to its surface functionalised sorbent particles, more precisely engineered alumina-silica micro-particles.

Unpleasant volatile odour compounds are immobilised on the large surface of the particles in the textile and turned into non-volatile, and therefore, non-perceivable odour compounds. The unique new odour sequestering technology is particularly suitable for polyester fabrics, though generally applicable to all fibre substrates.

In harsh tests, HeiQ Fresh NKU has shown a strong performance, and regenerated its effectiveness and sequestering potential even after repeated home laundry washings. Fabrics treated with HeiQ’s new odour sequestering technology are tested according to the internationally utilised deodorant efficacy test. With the help of a gas detector tube, the reduction rate of VOC’s like ammonia or acetic acid gas is measured, indicating the sequestration potential of malodors by functionalised textiles. (GK)
