Textile chemicals for complete textile chain at ITMA 2007

Dec '06
For the first time at ITMA 2003 in Birmingham, CEMATEX, as owner of ITMA, invited manufacturers of dyestuffs and chemical products for textiles to present their products and new developments. Thirty manufacturers already took advantage of this chance in Birmingham. The number of exhibitors in this segment will increase in Munich at ITMA 2007; 38 exhibitors have registered till now.

As a result, visitors to ITMA 2007 can not only obtain an overview of the latest developments in dyestuffs and textile auxiliaries in Munich, but can also see demonstrations of the close interrelationships of machines, processes and products for actual practice with new developments for high process reliability and shortening of process times.

In the textile industry, functional finish from fibre manufacturing to textile finishing and clothing production is especially in the forefront today. This applies to the increasingly varied and demanding sports and leisurewear as well as to expansive, technical textiles.

Improved textile qualities such as higher use properties, for example, improved fastnesses, are the main goal in the use of new auxiliary materials for textiles in textile finishing. This should be done with the lowest production costs possible.

A few examples illustrate this: functional sport and leisurewear using temperature-buffering “Phase Change Materials” (PCM), improved UV protection, nanotechnology for easy-care textile surfaces, odour-absorbers for household textiles, use of environmentally compatible auxiliary materials for textiles, flame-retardant finishing, antimicrobial finishing and simplified textile care (washing instead of dry cleaning).
