A new facility that consolidates Clariant's leading application services and expertise for customers in the carpet industry is being formally opened at Louvain-la-Neuve, south of Brussels in Belgium.

The state-of-the-art Carpet Center underpins Clariant's position as a supplier of the full range of dyes and chemicals for all aspects of carpet processing (from yarn spinning, dyeing and printing, to finishing and backing).

It brings the company's coloration and finishing facilities and know-how under one roof, a feature that is attractive to customers because they can discuss the whole chain in carpet production at one place and with one company.

Facilities include an application laboratory, machinery for rotary and jet printing, steamers, a gum applicator, different types of exhaust dyeing machines, foam application, continuous dryer, quality and fastness testing equipment, and a customer showroom with more than 300 carpet samples illustrating different types and coloration effects.

Also at the new center, customers' production processes can be imitated for trialing or problem-solving. New products and developments can be demonstrated, and training is available. Masterbatches, also used in the carpet industry, is adjacent to the new center.

Recent innovative developments for the center have included bright highfast dyes for jet printing, and new C6 fluorocarbon products with high dry soil-release are in advanced stages.

Ivan De Langhe, Head of the Clariant Global Carpet Center, says: “It is a great advantage for customers to have the different facilities and knowledge in one place. With the facilities we have, covering all applications in the industry, this new facility will be an attractive proposition for customers seeking one-stop solutions.”

Belgium was chosen for the location of the facility because of the country's pre-eminence in the industry – it is world's biggest carpet producer after the US.

Clariant is a global leader in the field of specialty chemicals. Strong business relationships, commitment to outstanding service and wide-ranging application know-how make Clariant a preferred partner for its customers.

Clariant, which is represented on five continents with over 100 group companies, employs around 20,000 people. Headquartered in Muttenz near Basel, Switzerland, it generated sales of CHF 8.5 billion in 2007.
