Spanish company, Jeanologia, the world's leading player in sustainable and efficient technologies for the textile finishing industry, has managed to eliminate the PP (potassium permanganate) Spray of industrial production processes of jeans by a laser solution. This is the latest development that the company will show while participating in Denim by Première Vision Barcelona on 18 and 19 November, the company said in a press release.

The PP Spray, used to create located used areas in a pair of jeans was the last polluting and harmful technique to the health of workers and the environment that had no substitute yet. Now, with this new development, a perfect production cycle eliminating all dangerous techniques in jeans finishing industry has been achieved.

In 2011, Jeanologia eliminated the use of Sand Blast with its Light Solutions; in 2012 Stonewash was replaced by Light Stoner and in 2013, the Light Scraper of Jeanologia eradicated manual scraping and now replaces spray of potassium permanganate with Light PP Spray. With the light of laser, Jeanologia has ended 4 adverse health and environmental processes used in the textile industry.

The PP Spray is the most dangerous practice for the health and safety of workers. It is done with a spray-gun that transforms chemicals into micro-particles which can be absorbed by people who perform this technique and result in lung problems, despite precautionary steps. With Light PP Spray the last damaging process in the textile industry is history

There are currently 2 million people who continue to work with the technique of PP Spray. With the laser solutions of Jeanologia, the textile industry can now replace harmful processes of Denim finishing into clean processes for workers and environment, the release said.

“The elimination of potassium permanganate spray by the use of laser is a milestone for the textile industry because it transforms the process of jeans production in the world. We have managed to replace all hazardous technology techniques for workers and emissions of the textile industry that, in the last four years have been reduced to 0 per cent," said Jeanologia CEO, Enrique Silla.

Jeanologia will present at Denim by Première Vision the first collection created without permanganate spray replaced by light PP thus achieving the effect of located used without compromising the final look, and at the same time without harming workers and the environment. (SH)
