Sympatex Technologies, a leading producer for hightech functional materials in clothing, footwear, accessories and technical fields of application will introduce new outer and lining materials made of recycled PET bottles during the Performance Days in Munich from 20 - 21 April 2016, the company said in a press release.

Sympatex will present ecological alternative among functional textile specialists during the fair which has its theme as recycling.

Sympatex has cooperated with the Italian yarn specialist Sinterama to offers 2-layer and 3-layer laminates, and windmaster made of recycled PES in its portfolio. The material basis of these laminates is a yarn that is produced by using recycled PET bottles. The new technologies 'Phaseable' and 'Moisture-tech Apparel' are now also available with materials made of recycled PET bottles.

In the field of lining materials, Sympatex has cooperated with Thermore to offer a waterproof cotton wool liner made of 100 per cent recycled PES. It is suitable for dry cleaning and can be combined with many different outer materials according to customer request.

“In combination with our 100 per cent waterproof and windproof as well as optimally breathable Sympatex membrane, the recycled PES outer materials offer a top performance. They are ideal for all requirements of our customers in the field of weather protection and comparable to newly fabricated PES materials on a high level. Moreover, these products are entirely made in the EU and have an optimised carbon footprint,” explains Haymo Strubel, director apparel at Sympatex Technologies.

“The Sympatex membrane is guaranteed green, it is made of polyetherester and 100 per cent recyclable. It is also free of PTFE and PFC. Thus, the mono-material polyester laminates can be completely added to the recycling process,” Strubel added further. (NA)
