PERFORMANCE DAYS: Awards für herausragende Neuentwicklungen in Sachen Funktion und Nachhaltigkeit

Wenn PERFORMANCE DAYS einen Award vergibt, dann ist dieser heiß begehrt. Denn die Jury ist bei der Auswahl der Gewinner des (ECO) PERFORMANCE AWARDS absolut unbeeinflusst und frei in ihrer Entscheidung und absolut integer. Diese Saison sind so herausragende Innovationen auf der Messe zu sehen, dass sogar gleich zwei Awards vergeben werden.

Es scheint, als hätte das aktuelle FOCUS TOPIC der kommenden Messe am 28. und 29. November WATER – OUR RESPONSIBILITY die Aussteller der PERFORMANCE DAYS zu Höchstleistungen angespornt. Denn in den vergangenen zehn Jahren der Messe gab es jede Saison Innovationen, aber selten so eine Fülle an herausragenden Neuentwicklungen. So werden zwei Preise vergeben, der ECO PERFORMANCE AWARD für die beste nachhaltige Entwicklung, und der PERFORMANCE AWARD für ein neues funktionelles Highlight.

Es scheint, als hätte das aktuelle FOCUS TOPIC der kommenden Messe am 28. und 29. November WATER – OUR RESPONSIBILITY die Aussteller der PERFORMANCE DAYS zu Höchstleistungen angespornt. Denn in den vergangenen zehn Jahren der Messe gab es jede Saison Innovationen, aber selten so eine Fülle an herausragenden Neuentwicklungen. So werden zwei Preise vergeben, der ECO PERFORMANCE AWARD für die beste nachhaltige Entwicklung, und der PERFORMANCE AWARD für ein neues funktionelles Highlight.  

Das ist der ECO PERFORMANCE AWARD-Gewinner:
Die Jury zeigte sich überdurchschnittlich begeistert bei der Nominierung des aktuellen EcoGewinners und bezeichnete den prämierten Stoff als die beste im Moment am Markt erhältliche ökologische Lösung. Das ausgezeichnete Laminat von Jou Jou Fish vereint verschiedene nachhaltige Technologien. Der Artikel „JYRNP0002 307“ besteht zu 100% aus recyceltem Nylon und ist mit einer mikroporösen Membrane (Funktionswerte 15K/10K) versehen, die ohne Lösungsmittel hergestellt ist. Auch wird eine Menge Wasser gespart, so ist nicht nur der Stoff wasserfrei gefärbt (Solution-Dyeing), auch die DWR wird als DryFinish ohne Wasser aufgebracht. Einzige optimierbar: Das Polyamid stammt im Moment noch aus post-industrieller Abfallverwertung – wünschenswert wäre hier zukünftig die Möglichkeit eines post-consumer Polyamids.

Das ist der PERFORMANCE AWARD-Gewinner:
Auch dieser Award geht an eine bahnbrechende Entwicklung. Noch nie zuvor gab es einen so feinen, und dabei hoch funktionellen und reißfesten Stoff. Der Sieger Artikel „DPQ 1092 DWR“ von Green Threads ist mit nur 17g/m² ein absolutes Leichtgewicht. Die verwendeten Nylongarne sind mit 7d und 4d besonders fein, ein 4d Garn wurde bei funktionellen Stoffen bisher noch nie eigesetzt. Dabei überzeugt der Stoff durch eine sehr gute Reißfestigkeit. Ein weiterer Pluspunkt für den Gewinner: Wenn mit diesem, mit 17 g sehr leichten Stoff vergleichbare Funktionswerte erreicht werden wie mit einem Stoff der 50g wiegt, wird nicht nur das Gewicht deutlich reduziert, sondern auch der Einsatz an Rohstoffen und Energie bei der Herstellung. Das schont auch die Umwelt, wenn am Lebensende der Bekleidung die Entsorgung ansteht.
