High-quality organic CBD
Born in 2019, Acabada ProActiveWear is the world's first and only CBD-infused activewear brand, committed to creating innovative, luxury apparel for the proactive woman. Conceptualized in New York and produced in Portugal, Acabada infuses luxury fabric with the highest quality organic CBD, to ensure that women will look, feel and perform at their best. Thanks to the close and intense cooperation between Acabada, Devan and the Portuguese production partner, goods were in store in less than five months starting from initial contact.

With over 30 years in the apparel industry, Acabada CEO and Co-Founder Seth Baum recognized the positive effects of CBD on pain and inflammation and the fact that top athletes embrace the active ingredient as a part of their training and recovery ritual. Baum assembled a team of experienced fashion designers, including Co-Founder and CCO Katrina Petrillo, and together they created a high fashion yet innovative product that is primed to disrupt the market. "While typical CBD products such as tinctures and edibles are growing exponentially in popularity, we began to envision a product that addressed health and wellness through a different lens. By physically infusing CBD into our garments, our product live at the intersection of fashion, fitness, and wellness," says Baum. With Acabada ProActiveWear, recovery starts from the moment you get dressed by helping to fight soreness and promote healing before the first squat, lunge or crunch.

Each garment from Acabada ProActiveWear contains up to 25 grams of zero-THC, lab-certified, 99.9% pure CBD, which will allow the benefits to last through 40 high-intensity wear and wash cycles. As customers approach 40 wears and washes, they can choose to sustainably recycle their CBD-infused garments through Acabada's upcycling program, where the recycled, synthetic fabrics will be repurposed where needed as commercial materials.

Devan launches two new sustainable technologies

Textile innovator Devan Chemicals will launch two new technologies at the upcoming Techtextil show in Frankfurt (May 14-17). Bio-flam, a bio-based flame retardant product and Odour Breakdown, a wash durable, non-biocidal odour control solution.
As tradition goes, every two years Devan participates in Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. In the quest for sustainability and transparency every company faces these days, the new Devan technologies offer answers to product developers and portfolio designers.

Textile innovator Devan Chemicals will launch two new technologies at the upcoming Techtextil show in Frankfurt (May 14-17). Bio-flam, a bio-based flame retardant product and Odour Breakdown, a wash durable, non-biocidal odour control solution.
As tradition goes, every two years Devan participates in Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. In the quest for sustainability and transparency every company faces these days, the new Devan technologies offer answers to product developers and portfolio designers.


Bio-flam
Some facts & figures: There are at least 5000 fire incidents each day in the EU. Yearly, about 70 000 people are hospitalised with fire-related injuries. Fires cause pollution. So sustainable fire performance of products is an economic, environmental and human necessity. Take the example of mattresses: tests indicate that when on fire, non-FR treated products give less than 5 minutes escape time. Unfortunately, that is not enough time for the fire brigade to arrive. Needless to say that to increase escape time, to reduce the risk and to save lives, products need to be flame retardant. The challenge is to obtain flame retardant properties in the most natural way, to find the right balance between safety for the people and for the planet.

Companies can do this by replacing raw materials from a non-renewable source, by bio-based FR treatments, which are made from renewable sources and do not contain halogens or heavy metals, as described in the norm EN 16785 1:2015. Bio-based FR treatments, like Bio-flam, are made from renewable, vegetable sources and enable the FR treated products to be biodegradable. The active components are 100% halogen- and heavy metal-free. A welcome innovation for the bedding industry, as the European Commission requires mattresses to be recyclable by 2030 in order to reduce landfill.

Bio-flam P307 is the first introduction in the new Devan BIO-FR family, and is biodegradable and is developed to be used on 100% cotton or cotton/viscose mixtures, in order to create an ecological concept, safe for people and planet, whatever might happen. Bio-flam P 307 is developed for mattress ticking to pass EN 597 1&2. The Devan researchers are developing other bio-based products for other market segments and for other fire standards.

Recycling of Coated and Painted Textile and Plastic Materials

The EU-funded Project, in which Devan Chemicals is a key partner, held a kick off meeting end of February 2019 at the EU Commission in Brussels, Belgium. The project consortium, led by Belgian R&D centre CENTEXBEL, consists of 17 European partners from across the value chain including design, manufacturing, NGOs, and research and innovation.

The focus of the consortium is on coated and painted textiles and plastic materials which are currently not recyclable. Ambitious plastic recycling targets of 50% have been set by the European Plastics Industry, and to meet these targets, smart solutions to enable the circular use of textile and plastic parts with multi-layer coatings must be considered.

DECOAT has therefore been established to investigate triggerable smart polymer material systems and appropriate recycling processes. The solutions will be based on smart additives (like microcapsules or microwave triggered additives) that will enable the efficient of coatings and other finishes, activated by a specific trigger (heat, humidity, microwave, chemical) to permit recycling.

The solutions will be based on smart additives (like microcapsules or microwave triggered additives) that will enable the efficient of coatings and other finishes, activated by a specific trigger (heat, humidity, microwave, chemical) to permit recycling.        

Devan’s specific role is in the development of microcapsules that will release its active core on application of a certain trigger (e.g. heat) at the end of life of the article. This active core material may be something that, for example, will promote the detachment of different coating layers (by separating them), opening the possibility for recyclability/re-use of the base materials. Different active core ingredients will be evaluated, and Devan will develop processes for each type of core ingredient and for each type of coating layer/matrix.

The bold aim of the four-year project is to decrease landfill by 75% of coated articles that are presently difficult to recycle, such as clothing, electronic goods and automotive components. A reduction in the carbon footprint by at least 30% for the considered products is aimed for. By enabling the recycling of such materials, DECOAT is expected to generate in the medium term a new market valued at over 150 million Euros in Europe.

Devan präsentiert weitere Ergebnisse zu Moov&Cool

Devan Chemicals, Innovator für Textilveredelung, präsentiert weitere Ergebnisse zu seiner ‚Kühlkomfort‘-Technologie Moov&Cool® für den Bekleidungs- und Sportartikelmarkt. Die patentierte Polymertechnologie wurde erstmals auf der Performance Days im April 2018 vorgestellt.

Moov&Cool ist eine patentierte Polymertechnologie, deren dauerhafte Wärmeaufnahmekapazität und Wärmeleitfähigkeit in Kombination mit einem außergewöhnlichen, ausgewogenen Feuchtetransfersystem für ein angenehm kühles Empfinden sorgt. Neben schneller Schweißaufnahme unterstützt die Technologie auf ausgewogene Weise auch die kontrollierte Schweißverdunstung. Als hochaktuelle Lösung zur Behandlung von Textilien wurde sie gezielt entwickelt, um die Leistungsfähigkeit von Profisportlern zu steigern und den Komfort von Breitensportartikeln zu verbessern.

Wahrhaft einzigartig
Devan erhebt den Anspruch der absoluten Einzigartigkeit seiner Technologie. „Wo andere Lösungen beim Verdunsten von Schweiß auf den Wind vertrauen, um ein kühles Hautgefühl zu erreichen, nutzt Moov&Cool die bei sportlichen Aktivitäten erzeugte, überschüssige Wärme, um die Körperkerntemperatur zu senken“, betont Dr. Vanessa Daelman, Business Unit Manager Performance bei Devan. „Das Prinzip wirkt auch bei reduzierter Windgeschwindigkeit, wie beispielsweise in Sporthallen.“

Darüber hinaus ist die Technologie nicht nur von Nutzen in heißen Klimazonen, sondern isoliert auch gegen Kälte. „Wenn Moov&Cool kälteren Temperaturen ausgesetzt wird, verengen sich die Poren der polymeren Schicht, sodass die Wärme zwischen dem Körper und dem Gewebe zurückgehalten wird“, so Dr. Daelman weiter.
Devan hat ein spezielles System entwickelt, um Sportartikelhersteller zur bestgeeigneten Nutzung der Technologie zu führen. Ziel des Systems ist die spezifische Dimensionierung von Moov&Cool für den vorgesehenen Einsatzzweck.

Testergebnisse
Devan legt großen Wert auf wissenschaftliche Nachweise und unabhängige Test. Das Unternehmen hat seine patentierte Technologie daher in Zusammenarbeit mit der Bakala-Akademie und der Universität Leuven strengen Prüfungen unterzogen. „Nach umfassenderen Tests mit Leistungssportlern können die Trends, die wir anfänglich sahen, inzwischen bestätigt werden“, sagt Dr. Daelman. „Moov&Cool bewirkt eine signifikante Absenkung der Körperkerntemperatur und hat einen positiven Effekt auf Herzfrequenz und Wärmeempfinden. Die vollständigen Testergebnisse werden wir auf der Performance Days am 28. und 29. November präsentieren.“

Von der Natur inspiriert
Devan zufolge gab ein Mechanismus in Pflanzen den Anstoß zur Entwicklung von Moov&Cool. „Pflanzen haben kleine, porenähnliche Öffnungen (Stomata) auf der Unterseite ihrer Blätter, die sie abhängig von den Umgebungsbedingungen öffnen und schließen“, erklärt Dr. Daelman. „So können sie ihren Wasser- und Wärmehaushalt regulieren.“
Devan präsentiert Moov&Cool im Detail während der Performance Days in München vom 28. bis 29. November auf Stand P11 in Halle C1.
