Sympatex Technologies, manufacturer of high-tech functional materials in clothing, footwear, and technical fields, is set to present its agenda 2020 at ISPO Munich 2017, from February 5 to 8, 2017, in hall A1, booth 418. The ecological alternative among functional textile specialists aims at closing ecological loop in the functional clothing sector by 2020.

Sympatex creates the perfect and required prerequisite for it with its 100 per cent recycled, PTFE-free and PFC-free Sympatex membrane, which will be offered as a completely climate-neutral product from 2017 onwards. The Sympatex ecological classification launched at ISPO subdividing the laminate portfolio by purely ecological aspects lays the foundation for a quick implementation of its agenda 2020. Sympatex has launched the “Sympathy Lab” to embark on the journey to completely sustainable outdoor clothing by 2020.

The aim is to make the entire laminate portfolio step-by-step sustainable by 2020, that is, absolutely eliminating C6 fluorocarbons of the equipment area, continuously enhancing materials apt for up-cycling and consistently increasing the share of recycled and renewable resources in the outer fabric and lining.

Step-by-step, Sympatex is going to abolish the lowest categories out of five dedicated laminate categories of its new ecological clustering – ranging from “10 per cent Sympathy Inside” for the yet lowest level of sustainability up to “100 per cent Sympathy Inside” for the best ecological category. These categories, for example with C6 treatment, will be replaced by alternatives for the outdoor and fashion market in the future and no longer be provided in the medium term. The products of the current “10 per cent Sympathy Inside” category will be abolished in 2018 already. The products of the “30 per cent Sympathy Inside” category will only be offered until 2020. The “50 per cent Sympathy Inside” category and higher will be exclusively used for fluorocarbon-free C0 treatment. The “70 per cent Sympathy Inside” category and higher use extra one third of recycled or renewable materials is apt for up-cycling (for example pure materials). The best “100 per cent Sympathy Inside” category reflects the closed loop of Sympatex, that is, not only the membrane is climate-neutral, but the entire laminate. (GK)
