Tintex garners second ISPO Best Product Award

Tintex, an industrial company based in the Porto region, Portugal, has garnered its second ISPO Best Product Award in TexTrends for 2018 in the Soft Equipment category with the company’s Article 4691TC.

The product is a circular economy centric material, branded B.Cork, a unique technology that sources certified pre-consumer cork waste. “Following a patent pending hi-tech lamination of a water based, formaldehyde and solvent free coating, a breathable, natural and waterproof supersoft touch is achieved,” the company reports. B.Cork can be applied to both knits and wovens, and works with all current Tintex smart fibre bases.

The jury also chose two new Tintex fabrics for the top ten ISPO qualities, selecting one for the Eco Era section and another one for the Membranes & Coatings category.

Seven further Tintex fabrics were selected as runners up and include one more for the Eco Era selection, two more for Membranes & Coatings, three for Baselayer innovation, and one for the Street Sport category.

Tintex was born in 1998 when it has begun its journey by making high quality, natural based, responsible jersey fabrics, using the latest sustainable hi-tech dyeing and finishing processes reinforcing the company’s advanced vision to better supply the contemporary fashion, sport and lingerie markets.

“Tintex is the future of a smart and proud manufacturing dynamic where trust, values, skills and smart innovations are delivered through precision creativity and flexibility to brands looking to make naturally better choices,” the company reports.
