Planet friendly, APJeT’s patented dry plasma process removes water from the finishing process. APJeT is showcasing its innovative Atmospheric Dry Plasma Process, a sustainable, water-free solution for applying durable finishes to multiple substrates, at Techtextil North America 2018, which takes place in Atlanta, GA, this week.

The APJeT Dry Plasma Process uses atmospheric plasma to cure durable finishes to textiles and other substrates, including nonwovens and film, and has little-to-no effect on fabric hand or colour. It also safely treats fabrics and other substrates made from heat-sensitive fibres and materials, according to the manufacturer.

APJeT moved into its corporate headquarters in Research Triangle Park, NC, in late 2015, allowing the company to expand its product development and production scale capabilities.  “Since that time, the response to the technology has been very enthusiastic,” said Martha A. Miller, Vice President of Business Development at APJeT. “We have seen a great deal of excitement about our durable, cost-effective, eco-friendly process, especially from industries struggling with water issues tied to traditional finishing processes.” This, she said, is because APJeT offers a clear alternative that is both effective and sustainable.

“With APJeT’s new RTP facility we have increased our production scale and development capabilities therefore increasing our ability to run customer development and production scale trials. This is important news for companies in a wide variety of industries looking for an effective alternative to water-based finishing,” she added.

Planet friendly, APJeT’s patented dry plasma process has been developed to remove water from the finishing process and significantly reduce the energy and chemicals needed to achieve a durable, high performance finish.
