TechTextil 2017

Hall 3.0; Booth C60

TechTextil is the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. As a member of the Fraunhofer Technical Textiles Alliance, Fraunhofer IGB is presenting its research on textile processing and finishing by means of plasma technology.

Fraunhofer IGB develops processes for the processing of textiles in order to provide them with specific characteristics such as water- or oil-repellent properties. The need for such processes is great, since the processing of the textile usually requires a high expenditure on chemicals.

Plasma technology offers an alternative to save chemicals and avoid waste products. This helps to meet the increasingly stringent environmental requirements. A further advantage is that they achieve a high layer quality at a high treatment speed.

At TechTextil from May 9 to 12 Mail in Frankfurt am Main, the Fraunhofer institutions which have joined together in the Technical Textiles Alliance are presenting themselves. The individual competencies of the different institutes are bundled in this alliance, so that the entire textile value chain can be covered.
