Plastic has long been found everywhere in the environment. Of the approximately 353 million tons of plastic waste worldwide, 22 percent ends up in the environment polluting and burdening our environment for a long time to come. This is one of the biggest global challenges that needs to be solved.
For the sustainable use of resources, the CHT Group has developed the product ARRISTAN rAIR, according to the principles of the circular economy. Here, plastic waste is converted into a valuable textile finishing product to achieve, for example, optimal moisture management in sports and active wear. Other areas of application include socks and tights in the clothing sector, filtration media and nonwovens in the technical textiles sector, and pillows and curtains in home textiles.
Since ARRISTAN rAIR is made out of recycled PET flakes, it is suited for finishing recycled yarns and fabrics which are subsequently recyclable again.
In addition to the positive characteristics already mentioned, the hydrophilizing agent ARRISTAN rAIR is characterized by its fast-drying properties in combination with excellent soil release and thermoregulation.
It therefore offers, especially in the field of functional textiles, optimal functionalities for high-quality and durable sportswear.
