best energy-scouts germany
Trans-Textil's apprentices among the best energy scouts in Germany

(20 July 2016)

Trans-Textil's apprentices have been on the lookout for energy-saving
potential in the firm for over a year now. Having learnt about energy
efficiency in a qualification measure provided by the Munich and Upper
Bavarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the young energy scouts
have since been taking a critical look at energy consumption levels in
projects of their own, making suggestions for improvements in the process.
Their outstanding project work – and that of 51 other teams of energy scouts
from all over Germany – were recently honoured at the German Chamber of
Industry and Commerce (DIHK) in Berlin. At the ceremony, Dr. Peter Ramsauer,
Chairman of the Committee on Economic Affairs and Energy at the German
Bundestag, and Dr. Martin Wansleben, Chief Executive of the DIHK,
congratulated the energy scouts from Freilassing for their approach and
the successes they have achieved at the firm to date.

Oekotex Standard Membranes
Topaz ELEMENTS: Membranes now certified to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100

(02 June 2016)

Our Topaz ELEMENTS concept involves continuous, on-going improvement
of our environmental performance and also that of our products, our goal
being to keep impacts as low as possible over the entire life cycle of our
functional fabrics to the benefit of man and the environment. We make high
requirements of both the materials we use and our new developments,
and as an important aspect have our laminates and contract processing
activities tested and certified to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 by independent
institutes in this respect.
Our membranes on the basis of polyurethane (PU), ePTFE, polyester (PES)
or hybrid systems – also in the form of individual components – are now also
certified, showing that each one in our expanded portfolio is in keeping with
the latest Oeko-Tex criteria. As a component part of the laminates in our
own collection as well as those contract-produced to customer specifications,
our membranes find use in waterproof and breathable systems for occupational
safety workwear, personal protection equipment (PPE), shoe components,
medical devices and outdoor and leisure apparel.

Oekotex Standard
Trans-Textil's own and order business recertified under the Oeko-Tex standard 100

Environmental Pact of Bavaria
Environmental Pact of Bavaria

(27 November 2015)

Due to its voluntary environmental measures, Trans-Textil GmbH has been
accepted again by the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and
Consumer Protection as a signatory to the Environmental Pact of Bavaria.
For Trans-Textil this is the third time it is extending its participation, this time
for the term ending in 2020. The Environmental Pact of Bavaria is an agreement
between the Bavarian government and the Bavarian business community and is
based on the shared conviction that natural resources can be better safe-
guarded though voluntary and solid cooperation than through laws and regu-
lations alone. The overarching goal of the Pact is to improve corporate
environmental protection in every business sector. The certificate awarded
to mark Trans-Textil's renewed participation acknowledges its voluntary
commitment to corporate environmental protection and sustainable business

Ready-mades for FRP manufacturing
VAP® 3D: Ready-mades for FRP manufacturing

(22 August 2015)

Specially devised to facilitate the vacuum infusion process in intricate
components, VAP® 3D ready-mades developed by Trans-Textil reliably
remove air and gas residues from the matrix around where they are
deployed. Thanks also to their semi-permeable characteristics, they
support use of VAP® membrane systems over entire component surfaces
in exacting fabrication and repair assignments mehr Info

Component form
Solutions adapted to component form

(22 August 2015)

As part of the AZIMUT and RoCk projects and working in response to calls
for automated and optimized process chains, Trans-Textil and Composyst
have developed a new made-to-shape approach especially devised for large
aviation structures that need to be fabricated in one integral process.
Starting with the geometry data of the Airbus A350 pressure bulkhead, this
involved compiling the layers in the VAP® process lay-up into a VAP® 3D
material kit made up of instant-use textile auxiliaries that have been tailored
to the precise shape of the component mold mehr Info

Automated deployment of VAP® 3D materials
Automated deployment of VAP® 3D materials

(22 August 2015)

The large-scale, multi-layer made-to-shape VAP® 3D solutions come with
robot grip straps for swift, automatic and precisely-positioned layer stacking
in the mold. This almost entirely eliminates the need for laborious cutting work
and other preparatory tasks such as joining, positioning, repositioning and
fixing the layers by hand. The VAP® 3D material kit has already proved its
worth in a trial involving a full-size Airbus A350 pressure bulkhead in the
RoCk Projekt.

Rainjackets auxiliary police
Keeping auxiliary policy dry on patrol

(08 August 2015)

Trans-Textil has provided Freilassing's auxiliary police reserve with high-quality
weathergear jackets produced out of its functional textiles. The volunteers support
the police as points of contact for passers-by and with their patrols heighten the
sense of security in the local population. The collaborative project between the
town of Freilassing, the police and Trans-Textil is unique throughout Bavaria as
such jackets are not standard in the apparel provided the auxiliary police.

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.

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.
