Jeanologia’s e-flow perfect for Devan finishes

Technology ensures that the correct amount of chemistry stays in the garment and not in the water.

Speciality chemicals producer Devan is working with Jeanologia, the specialist in sustainable finishing technologies headquartered in Valencia, Spain, to further reduce the water consumption required for the application of Bi-Ome antimicrobial and R-Vital skincare ranges.

Jeanologia’s e-Flow technology can accomplish a considerable number of finishing effects with the highest quality, a minimal amount of water and zero discharge.

The technology uses micronization and nebulization to substitute traditional abrasion processes and deliver performance chemistry using nano-bubbles instead of water.

This reduces the cost of application, saves the amount of water used and ensures that the correct amount of chemistry stays in the garment and not in the water.

As such, e-Flow is the perfect fit for industrial washing machines, allowing mills and brands to apply Devan’s technologies more sustainably than using traditional application equipment, even for smaller production runs and directly onto garments.

“Here at Devan we are continuously working on more sustainable solutions”, said Dr. Vanessa Daelman, CTO at Devan, based in Eonse, Belgium. “Next to this, we of course highly value sustainable application methods from Jeanologia, like e-Flow, in order to reduce the excess water usage during textile application. We are delighted that we could work together with Jeanologia and establish that Devan technologies can be easily applied via these technologies onto garments or fabrics like denim – and with full retention of functionality.

“This application method also allows post garment treatment of our finishes, for example an antimicrobial treatment onto already finished garments, which will be increasingly important in a more circular textile world where re-use plays an important role.”
