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 OSTANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®y 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Grabbing attention with Topaz dual guard

The main purpose of high-visibility safety apparel is to ensure that the wearer will be readily seen. Topaz dual guard, a finish developed
by Trans-Textil to make light-reflecting warning colours last longer, has undergone long-time wear testing at Bavaria's Annahütte steel works.
The test showed outstanding values in comparison to standard FC finishes with regard to repellence and wash removal of various types of
stain, thus ensuring significantly longer luminance according to EN 471. And this in turn has a positive effect regarding the life cycle of the
apparel and worker visibility.

knops made of high-temperature-resistant PU foam. The knops themselves are applied to an aramide nonwoven laminate in a special coating
process, and the air trapped between the knops keeps heat away from the body. PUDOTS® linings by Trans-Textil are 20 – 40 percent lighter
than usual thermal isolation systems.
