BASF will be participating at the ITMA Asia + CITME 2008 exhibition in Shanghai from July 27 - 31 (Hall E3, Stand C19). Visitors will be able to see and discuss about the wide range of ecological solutions for the textile industry under the three key aspects of ecology that are consumer safety, resource saving and climate protection.

“Ecology is certainly not new to BASF, but a special focus on consumer safety, resource saving and, especially, climate protection is crucial as this will be a major challenge to the textile industry in the near future,” explains Janardhanan Ramanujalu, Head of Global Business Management Textile Chemicals, BASF South East Asia Pte. Ltd. “By doing so, we want to continue shaping the future of the textile industry together with our customers,” he adds.

BASF has been committed to the sustainable development of the textile industry for over 100 years. “Putting FUTURE into Textiles” is the name given to this course, emphasizing BASF's commitment to continue offering solutions that contribute to better textiles and a better future.

At the fair, BASF will present its innovative ecological solutions and how they are “Putting FUTURE into Textiles”, such as:

Consumer Safety:
Formaldehyde-free textile processing: Formaldehyde has been under scrutiny for many years. The regulatory standards, as well as requirements of retailers and brands are becoming increasingly strict. BASF contributes to a peace of mind of customers by offering solutions that ensure zero “add-on” of formaldehyde to textiles while fulfilling the highest quality standards.

Dyeing, printing and finishing are the sources of formaldehyde in textile processing. These can be replaced with BASF's formaldehyde-free solutions, such as the formaldehyde-free Helizarin pigment printing system for printing and Fixapret NF for formaldehyde-free easy care finishing.

Resource Saving:
Cyclanon ECO Plus is a bio-eliminable solution for reduction clearing. When applied under acidic condition, there are no additional steps required for adjusting the pH level. This leads to significant savings in time, water and energy. Additional benefit to the environment: due to the increased productivity in comparison to alkaline based reduction clearing process, the overall effluent is reduced.

Helizarin ECOSOFT Printing System is the solution for customers seeking for an eco-efficient printing solution. It significantly reduces the consumption of water and energy compared to reactive printing due to its shorter processing time. Helizarin ECOSOFT Printing System also shows outstanding performance in terms of soft feel, brilliance and excellent fastness.

Super Performance Finish: BASF has been the pioneering inventor of resin finishing that allows clothes to look good without any ironing. Non-iron finishing offers not only comfort to end-consumers, but contribute to reducing the usage of energy for ironing. However, as fabrics finished with resin lose tensile and tearing strength, they encountered abrasion problems, especially in the necklines and cuffs of a finished garment.
