Water-based functional layers

Trans-Textil GmbH is presenting its PURABLE functional systems based on aqueous technologies for the first time at Techtextil in Frankfurt am Main (Hall 12.1, Stand B67). The company from Freilassing / Bavaria completely avoids organic solvents in production.

In combination with the PFC-free Clean4Green® finish, the water-based Topaz Elements® seam sealing tapes, the environmentally friendly transfer printing process and vegan-certified or recycled components, a technically extremely flexible and sustainable overall concept for functional textiles is created.

The basis of the PURABLE functional layers are specially developed, solvent-free formulations, which allow specific control of technical properties such as air permeability and breathability. The barrier systems are very elastic and, in combination with elastic textiles, ensure a comfortable stretch effect and a pleasant soft feel, even in multi-layer composites. With more than 50 cycles at 60°C according to ISO 6330, Trans-Textil has also proven the excellent washing properties of the new systems. When used as classic softshell products, the use of PTFE can be completely dispensed without any loss of the decisive parameter of water vapor permeability.

To ensure that they are watertight, the hydrophilic, solvent-free PURABLE membranes at Trans-Textil are processed into individual multi-layer composites using the precisely controlled in-house Point-in-Point® lamination process and achieve impermeability values of over 10 meters water column.
