WAKEFIELD, Mass. — January 6, 2016 — Sciessent, the leading provider of antimicrobial and odor absorption solutions for the textile and apparel industries, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with TANATEX Chemicals. TANATEX will act as exclusive EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) agent for Sciessent’s LAVA product. This partnership will streamline exchanges between technology and market intelligence within the EMEA textiles processing industry.
Created with zeolites — a mineral-based substance born from volcanic ash — Sciessent Lava traps odors, helping to keep textiles smelling fresh. The non-biocidal LAVA odor control regenerates with each wash/dry cycle for the expected life of the product. It is also fast acting and color-stable.
With growing customer and industry demand for safer products, this partnership helps grow a more responsible and sustainable textile future. LAVA is bluesign® approved, helping to reduce the environmental impact of the textile industry supply chain.
“Our product is unique, providing textile producers and consumers with an environmentally-friendly option for odor control. We look forward to TANATEX’s experience and knowledge within the EMEA textile processing industry helping us to reach this market,” said Paul Ford, CEO of Sciessent. “This partnership represents a big step forward for Sciessent as TANATEX will take our product to their extensive portfolio of customers. We look forward to a successful partnership in the years to come.”
“This is a unique partnership for TANATEX Chemicals as this is the first time we will present an external product to our customers. Sciessent’s LAVA product fits in our functional finishing portfolio and matches perfectly into the mineral technologies for which TANATEX is known,” said René Hermse, BU Manager Functional Finishing TANATEX Chemicals.
