With its Brenta line fabric with pleasant stretch but without any elastane, Sympatex is presenting a newly developed corporate workwear jacket with a 2-layer laminate made of 100% polyester at the A+A trade fair in Düsseldorf/Germany. The laminate remains 100% recyclable, because it is unmixed, and therefore fulfils far more than the upcoming, stricter EU regulations.
The membrane from Sympatex Technologies GmbH, Unterföhring/Germany, is made of polyether ester, which is harmless to health, and is free of PTFE and PFC. This means that it already complies with future EU regulations. The production and use of per-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) will be banned in future by the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) restriction process, as these have long posed an unacceptable risk to the environment and to people.
Under the motto "People count", A+A 2021 is dedicated to the trend themes of Solutions for the future, Digitalization, Sustainability, New working worlds and Pandemics.
The focus of the 37th A+A, the leading trade fair for health and safety at work, in Düsseldorf from October 26-29, 2021, is on sustainable occupational safety of the future.
