Bluestar Silicones and Quintenas Textile Solutions have announced the signing of an agreement to develop advantex technology. This agreement grants Quintenas Textile Solutions sole rights for advantex technology developed by Bluestar Silicones.

On the strength of its textiles expertise in the Active Sports, fashion sportswear and professional clothing, Quintenas Textile Solutions will have responsibility for developing high performance fabric composites for these markets using advantex technology.

Quintenas Textile Solutions will also carry out manufacturing and marketing. Bluestar Silicones will continue to provide research and development and will be in charge of promoting and protecting the silicones chemistry-based advantex technology brand.

Quintenas Textile Solutions, on the strength of its industrial integration, is involved in the search for added value in technical fabrics supplied to active sports, fashion sportswear and professional usage players.
