Superabsorbent SAF™ Fabrics at Techtextil

Techtextil takes place at Messe Frankfurt from 14th – 17th May 2019. TAL will be located on stand B20 in hall 4.2.

The main focus for TAL will be the promotion of its growing range of superabsorbent SAF™ fabrics – predominantly its innovative washable or high durability products which, since launch, have attracted a large amount of interest from a variety of market sectors. The material, when used as a core within protective outer materials, can be laundered and dried with minimal absorbency loss. Such a fabric has been developed as a solution for different industry sectors including hygiene and apparel.

“There has been an incredible amount of interest in our SAF™ washable fabrics,” explains Product Development Director Dr Mark Paterson. "The soft and conformable nature of the fabrics makes them ideal for everything from washable intimate wear to moisture management layers within apparel items. 

“These fabrics are just one example of how we have taken our unique core SAF™ fibre and, through creative product development, realised a unique fabric which can be integrated into a number of different products that require moisture containment/management.

“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do as a company. Events such as Techtextil not only allow us to promote the wide range of uses for all our SAF™  technologies – fibres, fabrics and yarns – but also discover new opportunities for its application within the industry of technical textiles.”

Representatives from TAL’s product development team will be available on its stand throughout Techtextil. To pre-arrange a meeting, or to find out more about SAF™, email
