Machinery investment enhances Clariant customer service capabilities
Feb '09
A facility that consolidates Clariant's leading application services and expertise for customers in the technical textile sector was formally launched at the Customer Service Centre in Kolshet, Thane, India.

A continuous coating machine, made by Werner Mathis AG, Switzerland, along with a lamination facility, has been installed by Clariant Chemicals (India) Limited to enhance its services to customers and increase its ability to meet the needs of the growing coatings market in India.

The new machine makes it possible to have control over various parameters such as the addon, drying time and also finishing time. It will be beneficial in technical-oriented coatings as well as in fashion-oriented coatings.

The investment means that new developments will be possible at Clariant's Customer Service Centre on all types of substrates with different dimensions and applications. Some of the major applications are:

• Foam coating on denim
• Pigment coating
• Black outs
• Upholstery
• Shower curtains
• Sheen coating

The coating machine will enable Clariant to imitate customers' production processes for trialing or problem-solving and will also help in demonstrating new products and developments.

The state-of-the-art coating machine underpins Clariant's position as a supplier of the full range of dyes and chemicals for all aspects of coatings. 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 coatings production at one place and with one company.
