HeiQ to show No Fuzz textile products at Performance Days
HeiQ, a leader in textile innovation creating effective, durable, and high-performance textile effects on the market, is set to launch the HeiQ No Fuzz, a new range of products to increase abrasion resistance of fabrics and reduce fuzzing and pilling, at the Performance Days expo, to be held on November 8 and 9, 2017, in Germany, in booth ‘lounge 5’.

HeiQ No Fuzz is based on novel adhesive polymer structures that give targeted, localised, and non-homogeneous “bridging” reinforcement inside yarns and/or on the outer surface of yarns. Like tree roots protecting soil from erosion, the novel HeiQ polymer structures adhere to and reinforce the fabric yarns, substantially reducing the tendency to pill and fuzz, keeping the appearance of the textile surface looking newer for longer, while minimising handle impact.

While pilling is a historic challenge in the textile, apparel and home textile industries, the problem of abrasion-related damage extends beyond unsightly appearance and reduced comfort. Fabrics that rapidly form visible defects (like pills, fuzz, holes) can have lower perceived quality, reduced wearer confidence and negatively affect a consumer’s sense of brand image.

HeiQ’s co-founder and chief science officer Murray Height said, “Abrasion of textiles during use and laundry can lead to loss of fibres that ultimately have potential to contribute to ocean micro-plastic pollution. Increasing the abrasion resistance and reducing the pilling and fuzzing tendency of yarns means fibres are less likely to be released into water during laundry.”

As no one-solution-fits-all, the HeiQ No Fuzz family consists of various products that can be used in combination, tailored to the characteristics of different fabric and yarn structures to achieve an optimal balance between improving the physical resilience of the fabric and minimising negative impact on desirable handle and comfort properties. Fabrics treated with this technology have been evaluated through Martindale and Pillbox tests and achieved exceptional efficiency initially and after washing (performance up to 50 washings). (GK)
