The focus is on new products made of 100% recycled polyester as well as on laminates made of certified organic cotton.

Munich / Unterföhring, 27th October 2014. At the Munich Performance Days (4th to 5th November 2014, MOC), Sympatex Technologies will present a wide-ranging product portfolio. The ecological alternative among functional textile specialists will introduce new laminates with the “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane for the sectors of fashion, street wear and leisure wear. Several new developments made of 100% recycled polyester will be offered in particular at the Sympatex booth (Hall 2, Booth 217). Moreover, new laminates made of certified organic cotton, which is produced in a 100% certified organic way, have recently been added to the Sympatex portfolio. Other highlights are new products treated with Polygiene® Odor Control Technology.

Regarding two-layer laminates, Sympatex offers a 100% recycled polyester with a mini ripstop look, a soft touch and mechanical stretch. Among the lightweight three-layer articles, there are very fine and smooth all-rounders, for instance with uppers in a houndstooth look as well as opaque jersey knit for linings. This is also good for the environment: The fabrics are produced with 100% pure recycled polyester, so they can easily join the recycling process again.

For the first time, the Sympatex portfolio also contains products made of certified organic cotton: The two-layer article offers a beautiful simple, smooth plain weave with a typical, slightly fibrous cotton touch, the reverse side of the three-layer article features a soft jersey knit.

“The look of the majority of new developments is aimed at the sectors of leisure wear and fashion. The high performance level also makes these articles special. Here, Sympatex can offer a very high breathability, amongst other things,” explains Haymo Strubel, Director Apparel at Sympatex. All products can receive treatments with the 100% fluorocarbon-free, water-repellent Bionic Finish® Eco as well as with Polygiene®, a technology featuring active odour control. In addition, more than 75% of the Sympatex laminates in the business area Apparel are already bluesign® approved at the moment.
