Rudolf Hub 1922, fashion division of Rudolf Group, will use Amsterdam Kingpins' stage to unveil an advancement that will propel denim industry to a 2.0 level: laser-ready denim fabrics from October 23-24. Through application of Rudolf Laser Primer technology on continuous processing (fabric finishing), manufacturers can now make most of laser machines’ magic.

The laser machine will allow creation of significantly enhanced aesthetics on indigo and sulphur dyes, and also help achieving important energy savings. The industrial process that returns laser ready fabrics has been studied and perfected in terms of laser advancing effect, minimisation of fibre damage and pH value of the fabric.

The sophisticated industrial recipe is designed for minimal applications and continuous foam deposition is the recommended technology. The four well-balanced and highly conscious components of the Rudolf Laser Primer machine are the Ruco-Special Lpr (main actor for laser-enhanced effect), Ruco-special Lpc (laser primer catalyst), Ruco-special Dpr (denim protector in laser priming) and Ruco-coat Fo 4010 (foam creator).

"R&D initiatives gravitating around the flavor of the season are definitely decreasing," said Wolfgang Anton Schumann, managing director of the Rudolf Group. "What’s increasing instead, are strategic partnerships based on the logic of true responsible science, whose purpose is creating win-wins in the arena of ethical fashion and in the name of a renewed love for product quality”.

Local abrasion on denim provides character and personality. Over the years, many techniques have been used to create that abrasion (brushing, sandblasting, chemical spray, scraping, laser burning etc).Some of the techniques have been either banned (sandblasting), or are highly questioned (PP spray). In the manufacturing environment, laser burning has taken a very central role and it is being increasingly adopted world-wide.

"This breakthrough innovation is a first and required 8 months of very intensive and multi-disciplinary work with key customers in 2 continents," said Alberto De Conti, head of Rudolf Fashion division. “It was mainly about applying science through a beginner eye and encouraging teams to learn from each other”.

Rudolf GmbH, which is based in Geretsried, Bavaria, was founded by Reinhold Rudolf in Northern Bohemia in 1922. It specialises in innovative and high-quality chemical products, predominantly textile auxiliaries, products for textile care as well as construction chemicals.
