Prosys Project – Incubator of ideas for laser safety
The Prosys international development project
recently got off to its official
start at a kick-off meeting
held at Trans-Textil GmbH in Freilassing, Germany.
companies and research institutes will
be working together
project to come up with innovative textile solutions
for active and passive
laser beam protection.
Trans-Textil GmbH refines its multifunction concept -
Long-lasting optimised functions
Application-oriented high-performance fabrics
based on a perfect interplay
of components and processing
technologies are one of the main
of Trans-Textil GmbH. The development, lamination, finish
specialist has refined a number of the componentsin
its line-up in the
equipment field. Its
efforts in this respect have mainly
been concerned withimproving
of product features and achieving a longer lifecycle for enhanced
effectivity and efficiency.
Update im Hitzeschutz
One of these products in line with the additional
requirements of the new standard is a 3-ply flame-resistant
comes with an outer fleece layer in a modacryl/cotton mix. Offering
a total weight of 380 g/m2,
product has a RET (Resistance to Evaporating Heat Transfer) value
< 17 according to EN343 Class 3.
In addition to the usual standard colours,
it is available in EN 471 neon
yellow and can be used in the
windproof jackets, waistcoats and pullovers.
Heatable foot bag for wheelchair users

Topaz Clean4Green is an eco-friendly finish that provides optimum water
repellence for leisure apparel and light protective clothing. Topaz
does not involve silicone or halogen and has an aqueous base,
finish for rough weather protection an environmentally compatible
alternative in terms of production, further
processing and use.
Topaz Dual Guard
Topaz Dual Guard protects apparel in a double way - not only does the novel
finish lastingly repel water, oil and dirt, it also offers improved wash removal
oil and graphite stains, thus helping EN 471 protective clothing to retain
visibility for a longer period. Topaz Dual Guard also offers all the conventional
product features required
for personal protective equipment and along with
enhanced longevity, ensures economic efficiency with regard
washing and finishing procedures.
Topaz airtouch will prove to be a real lightweight in clothing use. Applied in
fine droplets to the membrane involved, the new coating protects the
membrane from wear and tear and results in a laminate that can be worn
directly against the skin, doing away for the need for a lining. As an additional
advantage, Topaz airtouch coatings
are made on an eco-friendly aqueous
basis, and can also be modified or upgraded for specific applications.
Trans-Textil is placing a further new development on the market in the form
the Topaz bimicro® membrane. This unprecedented product combines the
characteristics of a microporous ePTFE membrane with those of an equally
microporous protective polymer layer for high water
vapour transmission and
variable air porosity at high water
impermeability. Topaz bimicro can be optionally upgraded with
Cocona® natural technology™ utilizing activated
carbon derived from coconut husks.
