Freudenberg will be showcasing various interlining innovations at the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Fair that will be held from 11-13 October. With the E…E, the company will introduce a new adhesive technology, matching the requirements of post processed garments and different kinds of outer fabrics.

The E…E product range includes a wide variety of nonwoven, woven, and knit interlinings able to match the required handfeel, weight, and performance qualities. E..E adhesives fuse faster than normal adhesives, and at lower temperatures, leading to improved production efficiencies, according to the manufacturer.

E...E interlinings are said to give the flexibility to change processing treatments without risking quality problems. Fused at 127C fuseline, E...E interlinings are said to deliver secure bond strength results after washing temperatures up to 95°C. Fused at 121°C fuseline, E...E interlinings are designed to achieve excellent bonds on standard fabrics with classical treatments like washing up to 60°C and dry cleaning.

Three advanced technology Comfortemp Thermal Insulation product ranges will be highlighted at the Intertextile show this year – Comfortemp Fiberball (advanced technology insulation layers made of clusters of extra fine fibres), Comfortemp Stretch (engineered with a focus on stretch and recovery in both width and length directions), and Comfortemp Down Feel (designed as a soft and voluminous down replacement insulation).

Stretch shirt innovations

At Intertextile Shanghai 2016, Freudenberg will debut two innovations with stretch technology for men’s woven shirts. With the addition of 9570 and 9544, Freudenberg expands its range of bi-elastic fusibles for shirt applications. 9570, a 155 g/m2 heavy weight option is recommended for collar falls as a single layer, creating extra volume without adding firmness, or in neckbands for smooth appearance with superior wearing comfort.

For stretchable outer fabrics, the company offers 9544, a woven bi-elastic with double stretch in the warp direction. It is designed for creating collars that stretch for comfort throughout the day, while keeping their original shape and neat appearance.

With the opening of the Freudenberg Vilene Asia Shirt Center, based in the Nantong, China factory, Freudenberg supports customers in Asia with the products and the technical support they need to make a perfect shirt.
