Under the theme 'Performance that protects Protection that performs' and at an impressive stand with a striking cubist design Clariant is showcasing its latest innovative and sustainable solutions for the technical textiles sector at this year's Techtextil, Frankfurt, May 24-26, 2011, Stand 3.0 B33.

In many instances, technical textiles are about providing protection – whether for people, vehicles, buildings or the environment and Clariant has developed advanced solutions to provide exactly what's needed when it's needed, be it strength, resiliency, antimicrobial protection, fire retardancy, repellency or barrier performance.

Highlights at Booth 3.0 B33 for the Protech, Medtech, Mobiltech and Hometech categories include the many new products presented here below. They complete an already unique portfolio and confirm Clariant as a matchless system supplier of solutions that are especially designed for the final application.

Protech
Visitors at the show will experience why Clariant solutions are 'the safeguard you can rely on' for repellency, flame retardancy and antibacterial protection.

Very easy to handle in processing, Nuva N products impart long-lasting soil repellency and release effects, while being non-sensitive in respect of their compatibility to other finishing chemicals.

Specifically for manufacturers of protective clothing, new PFOA-free, C6 based Nuva N4547 provides a highly durable soil release finish with good oil repellency, most notably on cellulosic fabrics.

Protective material also needs to be flame retardant and Clariant's Pekoflam MSP liq is a top performer here. It is less hygroscopic than competing products and, a very good water soaking resistance can be achieved by thermoset treatments at 160-170°C. Pekoflam MSP is a listed Oeko-Tex 100 Class II product.

Medtech
Clariant offers products that are especially designed to help create 'a barrier you can trust, where cleanliness is a must', through benefits such as strength and flexibility, alcohol and blood repellency and antibacterial protection.

A number of benefits can be provided to medical and hygienic disposables, meanwhile, with Nuva N2155 liq, a C6 based fluoro polymer with non detectable PFOA*: This is characterised by very good alcohol and blood repellence, with a fast curing profile, even at low temperatures, making it suitable for sensitive fibers such as polypropylene. The fastness of Nuva N2155 liq provides an excellent repellency performance and the non-ionic nature of the product has an improved compatibility with the binders employed in such disposables.

Appretan NF liq, meanwhile, imparts very interesting properties on nonwovens for medical and hygiene applications, notably alcohol resistance and wet elongation. The styrene/acrylate is soft and self crosslinking, even though being formaldehyde free and hydrophobic. This interesting performance also fits nicely into pigment printing concepts.
