Sympatex Technologies, that develops membranes, laminates, and functional textiles as well as finished products worldwide, is set to present the first upcycling product of the “wear2wear” corporate partnership at A+A 2017, the international safety, security, and health work trade fair, to be held from October 17 to 20, 2017, in hall 11, booth A22.

To close the resource cycle, these textiles can be completely recycled at the end of their life cycles. Thus, waste is prevented and new textiles are manufactured instead. Sympatex invites its customers as well as interested garment manufacturers and authorities to close the textile loop with the help of wear2wear. Individual solutions are jointly developed in the so-called “Sympathy Lab”.

Another element of the sustainability strategy is to neutralise the overall ecological balance of the clothing cycle as far as possible. Sympatex already offers the first membrane worldwide which is manufactured in a completely climate-neutral way. The manufacture of a Sympatex copolymer already produces approximately 50 times less CO2 compared to, for example, a similar PTFE membrane. In order to eliminate any contribution to global warming, Sympatex has now also been compensating the remaining CO2 amount of its entire annual membrane production since this year by participating in certified international climate protection projects. The functional specialist also supports its customers and market partners to completely shift to climate-neutral clothing: the CO2 emission of each individual running meter textile can be precisely identified as part of the ecological footprint by means of the Sympatex eco calculator. Sympatex customers can also completely compensate the inevitable CO2 emissions when taking part in climate protection projects.

In addition, new partner products with the innovative and highly functional footwear technology, Moisture-Tech by Sympatex, will be presented at the Sympatex booth. The highly functional shoe technology ensures an optimum micro climate and is in particular suitable for safety and fire boots. Moisture is quickly wicked away from the foot and cannot re-enter the inner lining due to the outward suction effect by using the extremely absorbent material. It gives high wear comfort and dry feet for maximum performance in all weathers. Thus, the high-performance lining technology is especially suitable for police, fire and custom staff. (GK)
