New feelgood technology from Schoeller
Jan '08
With 28 finishing plants in western and eastern Europe, 25 partner companies in Asia, 9 license-holders in Americas and 3 in Australia, the distribution partnership between Schoeller Technologies AG and Huntsman Textile Effects, established in 2005, can look back on a successful business year.

The number of licensed finishing partners increased by 50% to 65 world-wide within one year. Availability in new markets has also been further expanded.

Textiles with 3XDRY finish repel water and dirt from the outside and absorb moisture from the inside. Clothing with 3XDRY keeps the body dryer, prevents perspiration stains and produces a cooling effect. The high level of functionality remains intact far in excess of 40 washing cycles and, if necessary, can be renewed time and again through heat treatment (ironing or tumble drying).

This "Feelgood Technology" is being offered world-wide by qualified finishing companies. "We started off in the area of active sports and shirting. Then work wear discovered the benefits of the effect. New areas are being added on an almost monthly basis," says Hans U. Kohn, COO Schoeller Technologies AG.

The availability of the simultaneously hydrophobic and hydrophilic finishing technology is currently used by 65 license-holders around the globe. "We are presently in negotiations with 40 additional companies in order to meet the growing demand, in terms of both quantity and quality. This business is booming," adds Hans U. Kohn.
