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.
