UK-based Technical Absorbents takes part in ICTN
Nov '10
Delegates attending the recent International Conference on Technical Textiles & Nonwovens, held in New Delhi, were keen to find out about the various applications for Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF), manufactured by UK-based company, Technical Absorbents (TAL).

The 3-day conference aimed to bring together industry, research organisations and academia in the field of technical textiles for meaningful discussions on the existing technical textile products, possibilities for new product development and domestic and global market potentials for these products, along with coming up with a suitable strategy for the development of technical textiles in India.

Enquiries received by TAL at the event included interest in the technology developed for both washable super absorbency and evaporative cooling, both used in the performance apparel markets. Leading yarn manufacturers came forward to learn how they can utilise the unique absorbency features of SAF for enhancing their product portfolio. Those from the filtration sector were interested to learn about the rapid absorption rates of SAF within fuel filtration for separating water and the absorption of moisture in air filtration.

Mr David Hill, Business Development Manager, gave a presentation to delegates entitled 'Innovative fluid management solutions for advanced technical textiles' which was very well received by the industry and research fellows attending.

Mr Hill said:
“The Indian Technical Textiles sector presents a tremendous market development opportunity for Technical Absorbents. The extremely diverse application areas for TAL's superabsorbent product technology, lends itself perfectly to the manufacturing capability and high people skill base present within the Indian domestic technical textiles sector. TAL's presence at this year's IIT event was very favourably received. TAL's collaboration with the New Delhi based BCH Group, continues to provide a sound support base to its development activities within India.”
