Germany based Weko Weitmann & Konrad presented a new denim finishing process at ITMA on the proven non-contact minimum application system WFA (WEKO-Fluid-Application-System).

“Other than speed, this process offers optimal quality results, while also standing up to the critical look and the hand feel analysis for softness of denim manufacturers,” a Weko press release stated.

“In, particular, the process offers the 'Weko-Triple-C-Effect' or what can be summed up as; contact-free, chemical savings and cost reduction,” the company said.

Jointly with Lilienweiß GmbH and Textilchemie Dr. Petry GmbH, Weko developed the new process which replaces the padding methods, often requiring much energy, time and thereby cost.

Marcel Konrad, managing director of sales and marketing at Weko said, "The feedback has exceeded our expectations, as visitors lined up at our booth and were willing to wait to know more about the process.”

“We are very happy to inform that chemicals can be saved up to 60 per cent and energy savings are up to 70 per cent,” he too added.

“And in addition, our sustainable approach provides our customers with cost effective and high-performance solutions to meet the challenges of their unique markets,” Konrad informed.

The WFA process offers the same bandwidth of denim finishing like padding, regardless of whether it is resin or flat finish, fixation of indigo and sulphur dyes, tinting and over-dyeing, softness, lustre or brilliance.

“Even base coating for leather and glossy finishes is not only possible with the Weko system but can be achieved more efficiently in term of economics,” Weko observed.

Weko maintains two production sites in Germany and Brazil, company-owned sales and service offices in Italy, UK, USA and Brazil.

Furthermore, Weko collaborates worldwide with agencies marketing the products and offering the proven Weko service standard. (AR)
