Techtextil/Texprocess 2015: Collano
Innovative specialty adhesives
The Swiss adhesives specialist will behind innovative specialty adhesives for the apparel industry also present technical textile adhesives. The company will have two highlights at the exhibition: blackout films for blocking out the sun and thermoplastic film adhesives with eco-passport certification.
The new blackout film is characterised by a soft, textile hand, a high degree of whiteness and a good darkening effect. Handling of the blackout film will not pose a problem for manufacturers. Thanks to the use of film adhesives, a uniform coating weight across the entire length and width is guaranteed. Short lengths, too, can be coated without any problems. What’s more, because the film adhesives are laminated without drying or crosslinking, the manufacturing process is energy efficient and can be carried out in a single step. Can be used with all textiles and standard thermocalenders.
Thermoplastic film adhesives from Collano were recently awarded this ecopassport certificate. Textile manufacturers thus know that the delivered adhesives have already been tested – and that saves them time and money. Collano is helping to reassure users that textiles have been tested for harmful substances. By embracing established standards such as Öko-Tex Standard 100, collaborating with manufacturers of adhesives coating machinery and developing adhesives that customers want, the Collano makes to a partner to the textile industry.
Collano offers a broad range of technologies, including dispersion adhesives, reactive adhesive systems based on polyurethane or silanes, Collano HCM reactive adhesive powder, thermoplastic film adhesives, solvent-based adhesives and (reactive) hotmelts.
