Shoe laminates
for safety shoes

Trans-Textil offers a broad portfolio of track-tested water vapour permeable moisture barriers for use in the breathable and watertight climate membranes that form the central component of all functional textile laminates. Each featuring a skin-friendly surface, its Topaz laminates ensure outstanding comfort thanks to their swift removal of moisture and heat, plus they also offer a high degree of abrasion resistance as well as reliable protection against water ingress even in extreme weather. This offers shoe manufacturers a broad range of choices in track-tested membranes. Trans-Textil also develops and fine-tunes its own membrane production and finishing processes and places its exclusive textile technologies at the disposal of the market all over the world.

Premium shoe linings

Topaz shoe laminates fulfil the high requirements of the EN 344-1 standard for safety shoes, protective shoes and working shoes for professional use.

Unique lamination process

The individual layers of the linings are spot bonded according to our unique point-in-point process. This ensures that the dots of adhesive are applied at exactly the same points on both sides of the membrane for greater robustness in shoe production and daily wear.

It also means:

  • 60 % more breathability
  • low distortional tendency
  • greater wear comfort
  • longevity

Topaz ELEMENTS membrane systems

Trans-Textil only uses textile components that meet the highest requirements in terms of performance, comfort and ecology for its shoe laminates in the area of inner lining and sole material. For the first time, Topaz ELEMENTS membrane systems also provide breathable moisture barriers that are manufactured on a purely water-based basis and without the use of PFCs or other polluting substances and that are specially tailored to the needs of the shoe. In this way, we meet ecological responsibility as an overall principal without compromise in every component.
