Synthomer wins the renowned Future Textile Award 2018

For its groundbreaking Litex QuickShield™ technology, Synthomer wins the category “Best Innovation in Textile Chemistry” of the renowned Future Textile Awards 2018. The awards are handed out on an annual basis by the World Textile Information Network (WTIN), honouring cutting-edge products, processes and treatments in the technical textiles industries.

The jury praised Litex QuickShield™ “as a great innovation that supports the environment through the reduction of emissions”. This autumn, Synthomer has launched the Litex QuickShield™ 1545 as the first product in this range with a self-crosslinking formula that entirely avoids formaldehyde and ammonia. The water-based XSBR binder represents a new generation of latices for the coating of glass fibre which are later predominately used in façade insulation systems for modern housing.

This award further underlines Synthomer’s technological leadership, as Synthomer is one of the first to launch formaldehyde-free polymer dispersions for these high-performance applications. The technology is currently also being patented and will be extended to more Synthomer products in future.
