Techtextil 2013 Exhibitor Preview: Sinterama Group
BIELLA, Italy - May 2013 - Sinterama, European leader in the production of coloured polyester
threads and yarns, will present its whole product portfolio at Techtextil, the most important
international trade fair in the technical textiles market. From 11 to 13 June in Frankfurt, partner
firms of the group from Biella will present their most innovative ranges. These include the
Newlife™ platform which covers both the clothing part with Saluzzo Yarns (formerly Filature
Miroglio and now part of the Sinterama group) as well as furnishing and automotive.
Newlife™, a key player
Because of its exclusive performance, Newlife™ has been singled out as a partner by many leading textile and high tech clothing firms, who have chosen it for their collections.
1. Lafuma (F): for this brand leader in the outdoor sector (www.lafuma.com), whose core business comes from a love of mountains and nature, Newlife ™ is the 'natural' choice for its Eco Life Parka line. Presented for the first time at the latest edition of Ispo last February in Munich, this outdoor range, ideal for everyday wear, is made in a Frantissor fabric (www.frantissor.com) in 100% Newlife (tm).
2. Graf (CH): this important Swiss brand, specializing in the production of ice skates- artistic and hockey - and sports equipment (www.skates.com) has integrated its product range with a brand new line of techno sport apparel (www.grafskated.com ) and presents an anti-bacterial outfit in Newlife™, developped in cooperation with SecchiariStudio (www.seamless-ssd) which specializes in seamless garments produced with Santoni machines.
3. Klopman International (www.klopman.com), European leader in the production of workwear and protective fabrics and casual clothing, has chosen Newlife ™ yarns which endow fabrics with a natural feel and look as well as good breathability. At Techtextil they will present a fabric made in 96% Newlife™ and 4% Negastat, with anti-static properties.
4. Newlife™ is also the choice for Pieffe Sport's high performance work socks (www.pieffesport.it). For many years this Italian firm has been producing technical socks in innovative fibres, worked by state-of-the-art machines. The choice fell on Newlife ™ with Odour Control characteristics thanks to an activated carbon-based additive inserted during the spinning stages. Result: these socks guarantee easy breathability, without nasty odours.
Different applications, same belief in innovation
Research and technology are bywords at Techtextil.
In Frankfurt, the Sinterama Group's vast portfolio will serve as proof once again of the group's constant efforts to find practical responses to meet increasingly tough demands and extremely high quality standards and to find unique ideas and cutting edge materials and workmanship in every field.That's why, among the innovations presented by the Group's partners, there will be the army kit, (underwear, T-shirt and fleece) in special anti-bacterial fabric, produced from Saluzzo Yarns, by La Griffe (www.lagriffesrl.com) a brilliant example of a family business from Le Marche, which offers all types of knitwear products with a high technical-quality content for large supply to public administrations, institutions and protected persons.
Then there are the tablecloth fabrics produced by Parotex (www.parotex.it), who since 1976 have supplied luxury hotels, with their jacquard tablecloths and bed and bathroom linen, all made exclusively in Italy. The fabric presented at Techtextil looks and feels natural due to the yarn's intrinsic properties. Furthermore, its special finishing means that it does not absorb dirt and is easy to clean.
On a completely different note , Tinta ( www.tinta.be) a Belgian, Company, part of Sepia Promotion group and provider of a wide range of high quality and durable visibility materials, is introducing a new parasol made from a fabric woven using Sinterama yarn Soleil 1000 and manufactured by their partner Tradewinds (www.tradewinds.co.za). This yarn is engineered for outdoor end uses and can offer very high level light fastness, as well as a high degree of resistance to the most intensive weathering tests. Parasols, as well as banners, flags or beachflags, are one of the best vehicles to improve brand visibility and Tinta is one of the specislists in this kind of promotion; by using Soleil 1000, the long lasting performance and durability is guaranteed.
And finally there are the nautical ropes and rigging of Gottifredi & Maffioli (www.gottifredimaffioli.it), who have produced a wide range of top quality ropes, twins and twisted yarns made of synthetic fibres since 1926.
