Lo2O Performance Fabrics by Arttex

  1. 1. Increased Performance Low Impact to the environment Reshaping an existing technology to take textiles in an exiting new direction
  2. 2. THE FUTURE OF COLORING TEXTILES OUR RESEARCH CHALLENGE: What new technologies are on the horizon that would change traditional textile processing? •  A dye technology that would not become obsolete or get trumped in the near future by newer cleaner technologies •  A dye technology that would not require a huge amount of capital in water treatment and equipment •  This dye technology would need to perform equal to or better than current traditional methods •  Final material costs must be equal to or less than current traditional methods •  With the increasing pressure from the environmental organizations and brands to Clean Up textile manufacturing, “Low Impact” is a must
  3. 3. OUR RESEARCH We researched a number of possibilities over a 6 month period Our Findings: •  New Technologies in development would be costly and/or would require a large capital investment. •  In some cases these technologies would require coloring sublimation paper first with expensive inks and then transferring the color to fabric. Adding cost in both processing and raw material costs. •  Color penetration and colorfastness performance not at the level we were looking for •  In other cases technology was not ready, still many years out and water usage higher then our targets. •  In all cases, costs would more then likely be higher then traditional process.
  4. 4. WILE RESEARCHING In one brainstorming session we realized that we had overlooked something very important Our Development Results: •  A process for polyester, combining special raw materials and a specially designed inline process that would greatly reduce water usage, process steps, energy usage and waste water discharge •  Increased performance- Increased colorfastness performance over traditional coloration of polyester fabrics or yarns
  5. 5. OBJECTIVES & CHALLENGES ACHIEVEMENT SUMMARY Low Impact to the environment process! A technology that would not become obsolete A dye technology that performs equal to or better than the current / traditional methods Final product cost equal to or less than traditional manufacturing methods
  6. 6. INCREASED PERFORMANCE •  Superior colorfastness - Will not bleed, fade, or migrate •  No need for cationic polyester for color blocking - Same product for single color and color blocked garments •  Superior product for compression – No spandex degradation due to high temperature disperse dyeing! – Reduction of overall processing, tensions and temperature profiles •  No possibility of rope creases or crack marks from processing •  Better shade repeatability and consistency
  7. 7. Multi Color Fabrics •  Better and more cost effective design capability in fabrics (multi- color stripes / jacquards, etc.) and garments
  8. 8. Arttex Lo2O ENHANCED LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT Lo2O - The following numbers reflect the reduced impact of Lo2O compared to standard processing of a knit polyester/spandex fabric. Reduction in energy Reduction in water usage Reduction of greenhouse gases
  9. 9. What’s Next??? Commitment from brand partners that share this same vision and who wish to be first to place their name on the finished product
