Huntsman Textile Effects will be highlighting its extensive range of High IQ intelligent effects at the Functional Fabric Fair powered by Performance Days in New York this July. Huntsman’s comprehensive range of non-fluorinated Durable Water Repellency (DWR) technology will also be presented at the upcoming show.

“Through our cutting-edge technology and expert technical knowledge, High IQ delivers the industry’s leading range of innovative, eco-friendly intelligent textile effects. Fabrics treated with our intelligent effects are sustainable textile products that deliver the performance and benefits consumers expect of high-quality brands,” the company reports.

Huntsman will showcase an extended range of technology offerings, including sustainable, high performance and non-fluorinated DWR finishes, including Zelan.

High IQ Repel performance assurance programme is designed to help mills, brands and retailers meet global demand for eco-friendly apparel with rain and stain protection. Combining innovative durable water repellent finishes with unparalleled technical expertise, the High IQRepel programme is said to provide durable eco-friendly and sustainable protection for every performance need: everyday, outdoor and extreme adventures.

High IQ Lasting White performance assurance programme delivers very high and brilliant whites on cellulosic fibres, combining the company’s latest generation of well-known Uvitex fluorescent whitening agents. With environment-friendly fluorinated (C6) or non-fluorinated stain repel and release technologies, the fluorescent whitening agents used under the High IQ Lasting White programme are designed to ensure garments keep looking new for longer.

High IQ Lasting Color performance assurance programme is powered by specially selected Novacron dyes. Fabrics made using the High IQ Lasting Color will not fade, and there is little risk of colour staining on other garments during washing, the company reports.

High IQ Lasting Color eco performance assurance programme relies on Huntsman’s award-winning Avitera SE reactive dyes to reduce water and energy consumption by up to 50%, compared to best-available technologies. Great washing-off performance shortens processing time and increases productivity.

Finally, High IQ Cool Comfort moisture management programme allows garments to breathe while transporting moisture away from the body through its quick-dry properties. The unique technology reduces post-exercise chill, making the effects highly suitable for sports and active wear, according to the manufacturer.
