Demonstrating that it is possible to balance protection and comfort in safety footwear and apparel applications, Texon will be taking a series of new and re-worked products to A+A in October 2021 in Düsseldorf/Germany.
A highlight at the show will be the recently launched ProWeave jacquard weaving technology. Produced on a jacquard loom, which can interlace hundreds of warp threads or move a single wrap yarn independently, ProWeave is stronger and more resilient than materials made from traditional weaving techniques.
In the safety market, ProWeave can be engineered to create shoe uppers and garments that are robust and waterproof, but also breathable and comfortable. With this product, footwear manufacturers can make uppers, with different unique, multi-directional elasticity, tenacity, abrasion resistance and reinforcement zones. These characteristics are the direct result of long-standing expertise in the development of reliable and high-capacity technological solutions for the industry by Texon Inc., Hong Kong/China. Available in virgin or recycled polyester (rPET) variants, ProWeave can be integrated with the latest thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) technologies to give a further boost to abrasion resistance and tear and tensile strength.
Attendees at A+A will also be able to find out more about a series of new anti-penetration textile insoles, as well as a new generation of chainsaw resistant fabrics that offer complete protection in both safety boots and clothing. Furthermore, there is also a range of new generation membranes that are lightweight, waterproof and breathable.
