Rudolf Showcasing Future-Oriented Solutions At Techtextil

German manufacturer of textile auxiliaries Rudolf is showcasing its future-oriented solutions at Techtextil.

This includes Bionic-Finish ECO technology which is an advanced, patented fluorine-free technology that reliably protects textiles against rain and aqueous soiling.

The technology offers high-performance water repellency for technical applications with minimal application quantities, without impairing the feel, look or breathability of the treated textiles.

Inspired by nature and based on dendrimers, multifunctional building blocks that branch out on the textile surface, this technology gives the treated fibres a highly wash-resistant and fluorine-free microstructure.

In addition, Bionic-Finish ECO products are made from a high proportion of renewable, bio-based raw materials and therefore meet the growing sustainability requirements of consumers.

Another milestone is the cooperation between Rudolf and Dr. Hönle AG, a leading international company in the field of UV technology.

The cooperation has led to a UV curing technology, an energy-efficient method for curing UV-reactive substances for textile coatings, enabling fast curing under the influence of ultraviolet radiation.

This future-oriented technology offers numerous advantages, including efficient production and reduced waiting times.

The UV curing technology also offers savings in resources such as water and solvents and a lower environmental impact by eliminating the need for high temperatures.

Immediate further processing of the material shortens process times, which in turn reduces energy consumption and protects the environment.
