Energy efficient membranes, silicone-coated textile fibres, a new master batch for tintable polypropylene or technologies for integrating systems into apparel – these are just some of the inventions of the ten winners of the Techtextil and Avantex Innovation Prizes, which will be presented for outstanding achievements and new developments in various categories and disciplines at Techtextil, the trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens to be held at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre from 11 to 13 June 2013.  All award winning products will be on show in two special exhibitions at the fair.

From over 80 entries, a jury of renowned experts selected seven winners and one honourable mention for the Techtextil Innovation Prize and two projects for the Avantex Innovation Prize.

“The awardwinning products cover all areas of applications for technical textiles and are indicative of the great innovative power and variety in the sector”, says Michael Jänecke, Brand Manager Technical Textiles /=Techtextil, of Messe Frankfurt. “All award-winning companies will be honoured fittingly during the official opening ceremony in the Congress Centre Messe Frankfurt on 10 June.”

All Techtextil Innovation Award winners

Four projects have been selected for an award in the ‘New applications’ category. The Institute for Textile and Process Technology in Denkendorf, Germany, four German companies – TAO Trans- Atmospheric Operations GmbH, TINNIT Technologies GmbH, Wagner Tragwerke and Arnold Group – and the Blum Laboratory have succeeded in producing an energy-autarkic textile membrane construction based on the fur of a polar bear.

The Italian companies D'Appolonia and ZipLast, AIMPLAS – Instituto Tecnològico del Plastico und Industrial Sedò from Spain, the Spanopoulos Brothers Group from Greece and the Czech company Safibra developed “REFRESH”, a textile-based water bag, which makes it possible to transport large quantities of fresh water by sea.

Then there are the EMPA research institute from Switzerland together with the Swiss Paraplegic Centre and Schoeller Textil AG from Switzerland, who present their new type of a medical bed sheet for decubitus prevention, which reduces the friction for people who are bed-ridden for lengthy periods.

Finally, there is also the Belgian exhibitor, Beaulieu Technical Textiles, who won over the judges with their product 'Ökolys', a woven, bio-degradable and compostable agro textile that combats weeds and protects the soil.

The Techtextil Innovation Prize in the 'New Technologies' category goes to German exhibitors, LIBA Maschinenfabrik, for their new 'multi-compact' woven fabric. An honourable mention in this category goes to the Textile Research Institute of the State of Saxony, Germany (Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V.) for their circular woven fabric with variable cross section
