TOPAZ Composhell
Functional laminates for environmental technology

(24 April 2015)

Topaz Composhell laminates support rotting and composition processes in modern waste utilization plants. The semipermeable membrane laminates enable control of the microclimate within the waste treatment system and thus speed up and optimise the composting and drying of organic waste. mehr Info

Multifunctional Flame-retardant 
New! Trans-Textil now able to print multifunctional flame-retardant wovens

(08 April 2015)

Trans-Textil GmbH has developed a new generation of printed laminates
that combine the characteristics of multifunctional flame-retardant
wovens with transfer printing technology. Along with offering optimum
protection against numerous hazards, the textiles enable a wide variety
of colouration and design possibilities. As test results show, transfer
printing does not affect the protective characteristics, surface feel,
breathability, thermophysiological comfort and wearability of the new
laminate types in any way.

Apprentices in action as energy scouts

(22 March 2015)

At Trans-Textil apprentices currently on the lookout for energy-
saving potential. Having learnt the foundations of energy efficiency
in a qualification measure provided by the Chamber of Industry and
Commerce for Munich and Upper Bavaria, apprentices in all areas of
the firm are now engaged in own projects as 'energy scouts'. This
means taking a critical look at current energy consumption levels at
Trans-Textil and drawing up joint suggestions for improvements. This
raising of environmental awareness complements Trans-Textil's efforts
in the area as well as the training it provides in the fields of quality
management and occupational safety.

VAP 10 years
VAP® technology: 10 years in successful deployment all over the world
New membrane products and enhanced fabrication technology at the JEC

(20 February 2015)

The VAP® membrane-assisted vacuum infusion process has become a
standard in serial production of high-quality fibre reinforced polymers
components. Manufacturers worldwide have come to appreciate the
high process stability delivered by the process with the help of semi-
permeable membranes from Trans-Textil GmbH and Composyst GmbH.
The two partners will be celebrating this success and showcasing related
technology and products at the JEC Europe 2015 in Paris (hall 7.3, booth D6).

Lightweight functional fabrics for flame and heat protection

(04 February 2015)

”The more the better” – this long upheld principle has been abandoned in the
flame and heat protection clothing industry, literally lightening the load on
the wearers of such apparel. These days lightweight functional fabrics are
increasingly replacing bulky textile structures that create an insulating
effect but weigh down firefighters, for example. Yet functional fabrics
should not only offer enhanced comfort and convenience, but also
greater safety.
» Trendbook Technical Textiles 2015

Trans-Textil GmbH will also be exhibiting products and solutions for flame-
retardant and heat-protective clothing between 8 - 13 June 2015 at the
Interschutz in Hannover (Hall 012, Booth A62).

As part of a partnership with Airbus, Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW) of
Saxony has been assigned the task of development, production and delivery
of a new floor component. Working in cooperation with Leichtbau-Zentrum
Sachsen GmbH,
the company devised an innovative floor structure for the
new Airbus A350XWB in an ambitious development period of a mere two
years. EFW will now be undertaking serial production of the respective
components according to the VAP® method, whereby Trans-Textil's aviation-
qualified C2003 VAP® membrane system
will be finding use.

Reusable textile for operating room
Reusable textile for the operating room of the future

(22 December 2014)

In its "Operating Room of the Future" project, DTV Med, a section of the
German Textile Cleaning Association (DTV), addresses the challenges that
clinics will soon be facing. Along with cost-effectiveness and sustainability,
these involve issues such as the requirements that new generation of
employees and patients expect functional textiles to fulfil. Deployment of
single-use materials in the operating theatre, which leads to considerable
waste, is a case in hand. Reusable textiles in the form of washable surgical
gowns and drapes present a good alternative and are not only sustainable
but also of higher quality. Trans-Textil GmbH is a supplier of such functional
reusable textiles for high-performance surgical requirements.

assurance in Freilassing.

School bus attendants
Professional protective clothing for school bus attendants


The voluntary bus attendants assigned to the Freilassing Secondary
School play an important role in ensuring the safety of students on their
way to school and back again. Trans-Textil GmbH has donated 15 pro-
fessional high-visibility and weathergear jackets to these voluntary helpers
to provide them with optimum protection in every weather, whether hot or
cold, and to ensure they are seen by other traffic participants. The breathable
and particularly lightweight fabric provides protection against foul weather
in accordance with the European EN 343
standard and is certified as
high-visibility warning clothing according to the EN 20471 standard.

OHSAS 18001 (OHRIS) plant safety specification and our longstanding
participation in the Environmental Pact of Bavaria all bear witness to our
In an effort to uphold our high aspirations by outmatching threshold limit
values, we work in close collaboration with public authority and industrial
partners on forward-looking solutions. Trans-Textil already offers numerous
alternatives regarding membranes, finishes and coatings on an eco-friendly
basis, and is also the producer of Topaz clean4green, an unobjectionable
finish for outdoor apparel and light protecting clothing.

Recertification Audit Ohris
Safety and health at work


Trans-Textil GmbH shows a very high degree of commitment to
occupational and plant safety, as attested to by the Upper Bavarian
Trade Supervisory Office regarding a recertification audit conducted
at the company in line with the Bavarian OHRIS and international OHSAS
18001 standards. In the interests of its employees and neighbouring
businesses and households, Trans-Textil had expanded its existing
quality and environmental management system by a number of further
safety aspects three years ago. In recertification of the system, the
government of Upper Bavaria has now confirmed Trans-Textil's high
occupational and plant safety standards.

Topaz Carbon Membrane
Topaz Carbon membranes

By meeting EN 1149 antistatic workwear requirements in the
breathable moisture barrier, Topaz Carbon membranes enable
a broader range of choices in textile components. The conductive
thread that provides EN 1149 protective clothing its electrostatic
properties is generally woven into the fabric used as the outer layer.
The new Topaz Carbon Membrane by Trans-Textil GmbH provides
the same properties, but in the breathable moisture barrier thus
enabling wider choices in outer fabrics.

Prosys Laser
Laser protection textiles

Trans-Textil GmbH and its partners have brought the European
PROSYS-Laser project to a successful close following three years
of work on innovative textile solutions for active and passive laser
beam protection. Multi-layered products by Trans-Textil are the basis
of the both laser-protective clothing devised for work involving hand-
held laser processing devices (HLD) as well as curtains developed for
use with automated laser machines. The PROSYS-Laser project and its
developments are establishing new standards in multifunctional personal
protective equipment (PPE).
