Swiss textile technology innovator Heiq has introduced a revolutionary textile finishing technology 'Heiq Real Silk' in the market.

According to a Heiq press release, based on its recently developed and patented manufacturing technology platform for short polymer fibres, a perfect treatment for the fashion industry was created.

“With 'Heiq Real Silk' the key properties of silk are replicated by applying a minute amount of this precious natural raw material to the surface of any fabric,” the Swiss company added.

Heiq informed that 'Heiq Real Silk' transfers the prized characteristics and the luxurious feel of silk to other fabric types like polyamide, polyester, cotton or its blends.

The 'Heiq Real Silk' treatment makes use of formulated short silk fibres which are applied by standard textile finishing processes onto the surface of any kind of fabric.

“By applying silk to the surface, the tactile properties of silk are reproduced in a cost effective manner,” it observed.

“New cost-sensitive market segments can be tapped, wrapping people in silk feeling and bringing a touch of luxury to everyone,” Heiq noted.

Bekaert Deslee, the world leader in mattress ticking, which is the first to adopt this technology aims at creating a comfortable, luxurious and indulgent sleeping environment.

As per the company, Bekaert Deslee launched their mattress ticking with 'Heiq Real Silk' at the ongoing ISPA trade show being held in Orlando.

The 'Heiq Real Silk' technology makes use of short polymer fibres which are created in the newly developed pilot production plant at Heiq's R&D subsidiary in Australia.

“It is a patented manufacturing process where a thin fibre is formed by a coagulation process, with this material opening new opportunity for innovative textile technologies,” Heiq stated.

Heiq is still in full process of scaling up its innovative manufacturing plant for the manufacture of short polymer fibres, so, Heiq has selected its long standing innovation partners as first adopters. (AR)
