Huntsman
Textile Effects and Sciessent have entered into a strategic partnership to
bring revolutionary antimicrobial and odour-control solutions to textile mills
and brands worldwide.

As
consumers around the world begin paying more attention to health and hygiene,
Huntsman Textile Effects and Sciessent will cooperate to help mills and brands
deliver active wear, outerwear, home textiles and other products with
long-lasting protection against microbial growth and odour. Huntsman Textile
Effects will also become the exclusive distribution partner of Sciessent’s
Agion® Antimicrobial*, Lava XL® anti-odour solution, and dual-action Active
XL®.

“Both
Huntsman Textile Effects and Sciessent share a deep commitment to innovation,
environmental sustainability and customer service. As partners, our joint goal
is to offer the highest level of protection for textiles so that they stay
fresher for longer,” said Rohit
Aggarwal, President of Huntsman Textile Effects
. “Huntsman Textile Effects
now has one of the industry’s most complete end-to-end systems for
high-performance protection effects, with a full range of innovative and
sustainable protection and comfort technologies from pre-treatment to colouration
and finishing.”

“Our
presence in the global textile and apparel market has been rapidly expanding
based on the strength of our solution set and reputation for delivering an
exceptional customer experience,” said Sciessent
CEO Paul C. Ford
. “Through this partnership, we are both extending our
reach to manufacturers and enhancing our offerings by coupling them with
Huntsman Textile Effects’ broad range of innovative and sustainable protection
technologies. It is a great opportunity for manufacturers to differentiate
their products through the combined strength of our brands.”

Sciessent
is recognised for the proven effectiveness and safety of its antimicrobial and
anti-odour technologies throughout the global textile and apparel industry.

Sciessent
Agion® Antimicrobial is the industry-leading antimicrobial solution. Designed
with smart-release technology, it delivers long-lasting protection by releasing
its active antimicrobial agents only when needed. It can be built-in or applied
via padding, exhaust or package yarn to any textile alongside other functional
finishes, dyes, inks and pre-treatments. Durable up to 100 home washes, Agion®
is also customisable to meet brands’ performance and cost goals. Agion®
Antimicrobial has been used on FDA-approved medical devices.*

Sciessent
Lava XL® is a next-generation non-bioactive odour-control solution, ideal for
sportwear and athleisurewear. While other odour-control technologies capture
odours and release them during laundering, Lava XL®’s triple action technology
utilises zeolite minerals with a large surface area to capture, absorb and
degrade odours as they pass through the fabric.

Sciessent
Agion Active XL® combines the advanced dual technologies of Agion®
Antimicrobial and Lava XL® to deliver outstanding odour protection. The
antimicrobial fights odour-causing bacteria on the garment, while the odour-control
solution captures odour generated by sweat on the skin. The result is that
garments smell fresher for longer and sustain a high level of performance for
more wears.

The
Sciessent solutions are easily integrated into the finishing process and can be
combined with a range of other finishes, including Huntsman Textile Effects’
durable water repellents and comfort systems to cost-effectively produce
high-performance textile products that are safe and sustainable.

Huntsman
Textile Effects and Sciessent both champion environmentally responsible
products that help the textile industry meet its regulatory obligations and the
expectations of the world’s most exacting brands and consumers. The Agion®,
Lava XL® and Active XL® products are all bluesign® approved and listed on the
Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation ZDHC Gateway, complying
with ZDHC Level 3 requirements.
