On the occasion of PERFORMANCE DAYS MUNICH (https://www.performancedays.com/) beginning of May 2019, Sympatex lately has launched several highly functional, lightweight and extremely sustainable 2, 2,5 and 3-layer laminates which are perfectly suited for use in the outdoor, fashion and athleisure industry sector
One of the highlighted new functional materials: The 3-layer “STX Toulouse Rise C0” is highly functional whereby its 3rd layer made of soft jersey provides for a particularly pleasant feeling of comfort. Its eco-balance values are excellent: the production of a Sympatex copolymer emits 50 times less CO2 compared with a PTFE polymer – the remaining CO2 amount has been compensated with internationally certified climate protection projects since 2017. In addition to its C0 finishing, the upper fabric and backing are made of 100% recycled PES, which conserves around 90% water, approx. 2/3 energy and around 1/3 CO2, compared to virgin oil fibres. With the 100% recyclable Sympatex membrane, this European single-variety article can enter the textile cycle without any concern.
