Clariant is launching more than 25 product, process and effect innovations during its daily “innovation sessions” at ITMA 2011. The new products add to an already unique portfolio and confirm Clariant as the innovation company in the textile chemicals industry. Clariant is a matchless system supplier of customized solutions and elevates the standards of the entire textiles value chain by offering benefits to all customers.

The company's focus on closely intertwined concepts for spot-on solutions that meet the demands of sustainability, protection, performance and fashion will be highlighted throughout the event at Booth H4-A150-151.

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. Visit the innovation session at our booth on Saturday, September 24 – Foam Eco Care: Clariant cooperates with Cotton Incorporated to introduce resin finishing in a new dimension.

Clariant's new all-in-one bleaching auxiliary is the key to the new Blue Magic process. Based on Imerol Blue liquid, it generates both economic and ecological advantages: water savings of 50%, energy usage cut by 40% and it reduces process time by half. 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.
