UK-based absorbent fibre producer takes part in ICTN
Sep '10
Super Absorbent Fibre (Oasis SAF) manufacturer Technical Absorbents Ltd (TAL) is looking forward to attending the 2010 International Conference on Technical Textile and Nonwovens (ICTN). Organised by the Department of Textile Technology at the Indian Institute of Technology, ICTN 2010 will be held at the Institute's campus in Delhi between 11th and 13th November, 2010.

ICTN 2010 aims to bring together industry, research organisations and academia in the field of technical textiles to have meaningful discussions on the existing technical textile products, possibilities for new product development and domestic and global market potentials for these products. In addition, the conference aims to come up with a suitable strategy for the development of technical textiles in India.

ICTN 2010 is expected to be beneficial for industries looking to take advantage of the opened up global market, for research organisations to ascertain their thrust areas and for various academic institutions to identify areas to focus their R&D efforts and develop appropriate technology and products. Alongside the conference, there will be an exhibition area, enabling promotion of companies such as TAL that have a product or solution suited to different technical textile applications.

TAL is owned by Bluestar Fibres Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China National BlueStar (Group) Company Limited, which in-turn is wholly-owned by ChemChina – one of China's fastest growing chemical groups. During the conference, it is looking to raise further brand awareness on a global scale, meet with new and prospective customers and ultimately expand its presence within India.

In addition to the manufacture of Oasis SAF, TAL toll manufactures nonwovens, yarns, woven fabrics and finished consumer goods – all containing Oasis SAF. This is as a result of the relationships it has built with some of the world's leading specialist fibre converters, roll-goods producers and end product manufacturers. It is now working to develop similar networks with Asian companies in order to enhance routes to market within this region.

Mr Dave Hill, Business Development Manager for TAL, said:
“Our product is used in a wide range of applications including geo synthetics, sweat control and coolant technology, food packaging, freeze-cool technology, hygiene products, agrotextiles and groundwater management. ICTN is an excellent opportunity to promote our technology and be able to meet with organisations and individuals to discuss working together in the future.

"India is of huge importance to TAL due to the already significant levels of on-going investment and technical expertise availability within the technical textile development sector, offering tremendous growth potential. Events such as ICTN allow more effective and direct communication with interested parties and so it is essential that TAL has a presence.”

Mr Hill will be presenting at the conference with a lecture entitled 'Innovative fluid management solutions for advanced technical textiles'.
