Alexium International Group Limited announced that Duro Textiles, Alexium’s licensee for North America for Ascalon, Alexium’s revolutionary fire retardant treatment (FR) for Nylon, has now scheduled the next stage production trial following on from successful completion of the first line production trial. This next stage production trial marks another strong advance towards full scale production of Ascalonto meet customer orders received by Duro.

Successfully completing a series of short production runs is a key element of the product development cycle. Implementing the process, establishing capacity, validating quality on the production scale, and locking in the supply and logistics chain are key objectives over the next few months.

The initial production trials have already resulted in valuable insight and progress regarding key milestones for full scale process implementation and establishing production capacity. “We see opportunities for optimization and refinement, and allocating our resources to produce consistent production output. Advancements on the technical front learnt from the production process will also naturally lead to near-term revenue growth.” stated Stefan Susta, Alexium’s Chief Operating Officer.

“This next stage production trial will determine the key processing parameters and sensitivity ranges that will ensure repeatable results that meet Duro’s and other customer’s expectations. We are committed to a product that not only fully performs to specifications but also meets the highest quality standards off the production floor, stated Dirk van Hyning, Alexium’s Head of Product Development and Commercial Transition.
