Sympatex to show functional jacket 4.0 at OutDoor 2017
May '17
Sympatex Technologies, that develops membranes, laminates, and functional textiles as well as finished products worldwide, is set to present the ultimate functional jacket 4.0 at OutDoor 2017, a leading exhibition for leisure, sports, travel, and appropriate clothing, to be held from June 18 to 12, 2017, in hall A3, booth 208, in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

The material basis of the jacket is a 100 per cent recycled laminate from the current Sympatex portfolio. The membrane, whose production waste is completely reused via the Sympatex pre-consumer recycling, consists of 100 per cent polyether-ester and is produced in a completely climate neutral way just like the textiles as well. The 100 per cent recycled outer fabrics and linings consist of polyester fibres certified by GRS (global recycled standard) and bluesign. Compared to 1 kg of oil-based polyester fibres, the production of 1 kg of recycled polyester fibres guarantees an excellent life cycle assessment: 32 per cent CO2 reduction, 60 per cent energy savings, and 94 per cent less water consumption. Instead of 60 litres, only about 3 litres of this rare resource are needed here.

Due to the colouring by means of digital print, no traditional wet colouring is required, that is, Sympatex achieves reduced water consumption, with at the same time sheer unlimited opportunities for individual design. The functional jacket is 100 per cent recyclable and can be spun out to new fibres at the end of its wear time with the help of an upcycling procedure. For this reason, you will find an integrated return print with the Sympatex company address inside the jacket. It is directly sent to a plastic recycler which allows for spinning out the PES fibres, and consequently, closing the loop with a constant reusable material level at the same time.

Rüdiger Fox, CEO of Sympatex Technologies said, “Our closed loop meets textile industry 4.0 lighthouse project deals with the development of a customisable, recycled, and in turn, recyclable functional jacket 4.0. This project combines highest clothing performance and fashion style with at the same time optimised sustainability and we invite the entire industry to replicate these technological opportunities unscrupulously that are available already today.” (GK)
