Latest developments in technical textiles & nonwovens at Techtextil NA


Leading technical textile and nonwovens companies from around the world will showcase the latest products and advanced technologies in textiles, nonwovens and materials during Techtextil North America 2010 next month in Atlanta, Georgia.

Techtextil North America represents all vertical aspects of the technical textile industry from research and development,through raw materials and production processes, to conversion, further treatment and recycling.

Some of the highlights of the 2010 exhibit hall will include:
Aurora Specialty Textiles Group, Inc. will have a focus on offering options that are both economical and eco-friendly.Aurora had added cationic cotton fabric dyeing to its range of fabric coloring capabilities. This process utilizes fabrics made with cationic treated cotton yarn which has an affinity for reactive dye. The benefits of this system are many including; shorter dye cycles, reduced usage of energy and water, elimination of salts and alkali, reduction of greige fabric SKU’s, etc. By blending the cationic cotton yarns with standard cotton or other fibers it’s possible to create yarn dyed effects with the flexibility and convenience of piece dyeing. This is just one of several low environmental impact dyeing/finishing processes offered by Aurora.

Bally Ribbon Mills will demonstrate their extensive product line of engineered, woven, narrow fabrics, specialty broadcloth and woven structures for medical, industrial, safety, aerospace and commercial applications. The Bally Ribbon Mills exhibit will display samples of woven tubular vascular stents, bifurcate grafts, tapered weaves and arteries that are used to repair damaged blood vessels as well as blood filtration membrane and carbon fiber structures for orthopedic and prosthetic applications. In addition, samples of circular (polar) weaves, woven 2D and 3D shapes, fabrics used for parachutes and for air frame components will be displayed.

Brueckner Textile Technologies GmbH & Co., is a worldwide leading producer of systems for the finishing of textiles, nonwovens and technical textiles. One focus at Techtextil North America will be on eco-technologies – saving energy on the highest level. Using a Brueckner Eco-Heat recovery unit allows energy savings of up to 35% depending on the process. The low investment costs can be recuperated in a very short time. The already low emissions of Brueckner’s stenters can be reduced even further with an Eco-Air purification unit consisting of a scrubber and/or electrostatic precipitator as supplement to the heat recovery system.  Source Fibre2Fashion.com
