Clariant demonstrates its response to the challenge to make textile processes more sustainable with products, processes and know-how technology that address environmental concerns. These include:

The new Pekoflam system is a fundamental breakthrough in durable FR (fire retardant) finishes and heralds a new generation in the production of FR protective textiles. Clariant's innovative, bi-component system, Pekoflam® ECO and Pekoflam SYN, meets the needs of the textile industry for a more sustainable and high performance FR application that can be used with existing equipment and is free of Oeko-Tex1) restricted materials2), commonly still found in certain FR. Visit the innovation session at our booth on Thursday, September 22 – Sustainable Protection: Clariant launches a new durable eco flame retardant finishing.

Clariant's Foam Eco Care finishing sets a new benchmark in wrinkle-free finishes. This has been achieved with a new foam-based application improving fabric quality, cutting down production processes and generating benefits in water, energy and time savings.

Besides its advanced brightening effect, Blue Magic adds up to higher productivity, simplified handling, better uniformity and improved dye-ability, with less impact on the environment.
