Topaz Fusion®: Fashion meets Function
The combination of fashion style with innovative textile technologies
With the concept Topaz FUSION® Trans-Textil
bridges the gap between individual design and functional high-performance
Behind this is the combination of highly breathable
and weatherproof multilayer membrane laminates with versatile
product design in textile printing or coating.
This results in individual products for outdoor, leisure,
sports and business wear as well
innovative shoe components,
combined with a high standard of environmental compatibility.
The joint development is in the fore-
ground, each project follows
individual goals regarding optics and function - according
to the motto, ‘Create your own design,
create your own
Topaz COMPANION®: ultra-light sportswear laminates
Wool Performance laminates: natural high-performance fiber meets
functional textile technology
3D Warp Knit Laminates - targeted controlled performance
AQUAIR® - Breathable imitation leather on solvent-free aqueous coating basis
With its external breathable, wind-proof and waterproof functional
layer, the ultra-light Topaz COMPANION® laminates have been
specially developed as a daily com-panion for outdoor activities
and athleisure-wear in cycling or run-ning. The open textile
structures of the fine fabrics and knits on the body-side provide
a pleasantly dry feeling on the skin and at the same time provide
maximum breathability through direct access to the functional
Topaz membrane. In addition the 2-layer systems certi-fied according
to Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® offer high abrasion resistance
as well as an extremely small pack size.
Wool Performance laminates com-bine modern sophisticated design,
breathable and waterproof mem-brane systems and the natural
wool fiber. The natural high-performance fiber is already endowed
with amazing properties which are completed by further functio-nalization
through Oeko-Tex vertified moisture barriers or PFC-free Clean4Green®
finishing for business, outdoor and corporate wear.
Wool-Performance laminate are jointly developed by Becker
Tuche GmbH & Co. KG and Trans-Textil GmbH.
Targeted functional areas based on body regions
for protective, outdoor and leisure clothing are integrated
directly into the digitally controlled knitting process. Mesh
zones with targeted hole size for tailored breathability or
abrasion resistant 3D structures can be placed exactly where
they are needed. For a cle-arer view, transparent or coloured
membrane systems from Trans-Textil are used as the design highlight
in the 3-layer laminate.
The starting point for the 3D warp-knit laminates by Trans-Textil
consists of the superstretch fabrics from
Penn Textile Solutions‘ dreamshape® sport collection.
Purely water-based formulation components are the starting point
for AQUAIR, the highly breathable synthetic leather by Trans-Textil.
The manufacturing process not only completely dispenses with
organic solvents, but also offers a high degree of design freedom
of structure, colouring and tech-nical properties of
the abrasion-resistant AQUAIR® functional layer. In conjunction
with the extensive portfolio of membrane systems, substrates
and textile technologies, the process creates sophisticated
multi-layer products for shoe, apparel, furniture or accessories.
