Schoeller: NanoSphere® Plus protects against fingerprints and dirt

Techtextil 2019: Schoeller launches its new finishing technology called NanoSphere® Plus. The special effect of this new development is its protection against fingerprints and greasy stains. Furthermore, even after being absorbed by the fabric stains are quickly and easily wiped away without washing.

Every human being leaves its marks. In particular, on daily-use items that are picked up or touched often. Especially on textile surfaces, hand and fingerprints in combination with dirt and dust particles leave an unpleasant, greasy dirt film, which is very difficult to clean.

NanoSphere® Plus, developed by Schoeller Technologies AG, the business unit for technologies at Schoeller Textil AG, works on the basis of a functional chain. Textiles are equipped with a matrix finish to reduce the capillary effect in the textile’s fibers. Especially unpleasant sebum residues and dirt that are often released by finger and handprints are less absorbed by the fabric and can be easily wiped away.

Beside the excellent protection against finger and handprints, textiles with NanoSphere® Plus are additionally water and oil repellent, abrasion resistant and extremely durable. The finishing technology rarely affects the look or feel of the fabric.

Non-washable textiles that are often touched by hands or fingers, or fabrics that are in direct contact with the skin benefit most from this new technology. Therefore, NanoSphere® Plus is ideal for woven fabrics and synthetic leather or synthetic suede for bags, covers of electronical devices, head phones, loud speakers or other items in the field of interior equipment.

Schoeller: mit NanoSphere® Plus gegen Schmutz und Fingerabdrücke

  • Techtextil 2019: Schoeller bringt die neue Ausrüstungstechnologie NanoSphere® Plus auf den Markt.

Das Besondere an der neuen Entwicklung: Sie schützt nicht nur vor Fingerabdrücken und fettigen Rückständen – sondern Textilien lassen sich auch bei Verschmutzung durch bloßes Wegwischen schnell und leicht reinigen.

Jeder Mensch hinterlässt Spuren. Vor allem auf Gegenständen des täglichen Gebrauchs, die regelmäßig in die Hände genommen werden. Speziell auf textilen Oberflächen hinterlassen Hand- und Fingerabdrücke in Verbindung mit Staub- und Schmutzpartikeln oft einen unerwünschten fettigen Schmutzfilm, der sich nur schwer entfernen lässt.

Die neue Ausrüstung von Schoeller Technologies AG, dem Technologiebereich der Schoeller Textil AG, heißt NanoSphere® Plus und funktioniert auf Basis einer Wirkungskette: Textilien werden mit einer Matrixausrüstung versehen, sodass der Kapillareffekt in der textilen Faser vermindert wird. Unangenehme Talg-Rückstände und Verschmutzungen, die über Finger und Hände abgegeben werden, bleiben weniger haften und lassen sich durch einfaches Wegwischen fast vollständig entfernen.

Neben dem Schutz gegen Finger- und Handabdrücke sind Textilien mit NanoSphere Plus zusätzlich auch noch wasser- und ölabweisend sowie extrem widerstandsfähig und abriebfest. Beim Einsatz der Technologie werden Haptik und Optik des Materials kaum beeinflusst.

Vorteilhaft ist diese Ausrüstung insbesondere bei Textilien, die oft berührt werden oder im direkten Kontakt mit der Haut sind und kaum oder gar nicht gewaschen werden. NanoSphere® Plus kann daher optimal auf Gewebe oder Kunstleder bzw. Wildleder-Ersatzprodukten für Taschen, Hüllen elektronischer Geräte, Kopfhörer, Lautsprecher oder Gegenstände im Bereich der Innenausstattung eingesetzt werden.

coldblack®: Schoeller cooperates with Südwolle Group

OutDoor2018: Schoeller’s coldblack® technology has been specifically optimized for use on knitted and woven fabrics so brands can now expand their product application uses. Under the blazing sun, textiles with coldblack® heat up less and stay cool to the touch. Südwolle Group, a leading manufacturer of high quality yarns, has also recognized the ideal combination of merino and coldblack®. With this, the wear comfort of wool apparel can be tangibly improved.

Wool is well known for its various property benefits, including insulation, natural antibacterial protection, odor control, light weight and nearly wrinkle free composition. Not only in the winter time, but also in summer particularly merino wool, a special high-quality type of wool, regulates moisture balance and thus the body temperature. The fibers can absorb a great deal of moisture or sweat and transport it away from the body. Warm ambient air quickly dries the material and causes a cooling evaporation, which makes it very comfortable to wear merino apparel in the summer time.

The fibers can absorb a great deal of moisture or sweat and transport it away from the body. Warm ambient air quickly dries the material and causes a cooling evaporation, which makes it very comfortable to wear merino apparel in the summer time.

coldblack® technology from Schoeller supports the natural properties of wool because it reliably reduces heat build-up when exposed to the sun. Together with the help of Südwolle Group, the finish has been optimized specifically for the use in merino apparel. The yarn manufacturer chooses coldblack® for a variety of uses, especially for knitting and weaving yarns for sports and outdoor apparel and develops such products individually according to its customers’ requirements.

Stéphane Thouvay, Managing Director Product Management & Innovation at Südwolle Group, summarizes the use of the technology as follows: “coldblack® is part of our product range for the summer time, which we will be presenting at OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen. The technology reduces not only heat build-up, but also enhances the natural UV protection of wool without affecting the look and feel of the fabric. Therefore coldblack® perfectly fits into our yarn selection for sports and outdoor apparel, for example in our collection ʻYarn in Motion’. For end consumers garments made of coldblack® yarns can optionally be labeled with hangtags.”

When used in high-quality woolen fabrics, coldblack® has already proven its performance and is being used by renowned brands in various collections of men’s suits. Since 2008, the technology has been licensed by more than 200 brands, in sports particularly in the field of cycling, triathlon and golf. All components of the finish are bluesign® approved.
