HeiQ has come out with updated versions of its HeiQ Fresh and HeiQ XReflex product lines. For HeiQ Fresh, there are now improved products with better technical aspects, and in case of HeiQ XReflex, product options have been increased. HeiQ is also introducing additional fabrics and insulation packages for HeiQ XReflex. HeiQ was founded in 2005.

Founded during a hike in the Swiss Alps, HeiQ’s first product, HeiQ Fresh, was developed to solve the problem of stinky outdoor apparel. Since then there have been continuous updates to the odour control range with three sustainable products – HeiQ Pure TAG, HeiQ Pure SPQR and HeiQ Fresh FFL. HeiQ Pure TAG has been upgraded. It is a recycled silver-based odour control with a nonionic reformulation, highly compatible with most textile finishing. It has a long shelf life and is highly storage stable.

HeiQ Pure SPQR is a hybrid silver- and bio-based, dual-action odour control technology and meets USDA biopreferred requirements. HeiQ Fresh FFL is a fully bio-based odour control technology that also meets USDA Biopreferred requirements. All these products are Oeko-Tex Class 1-4 conform and bluesign approved. Both HeiQ Pure SPQR and HeiQ Fresh FFL are shipped as standard goods which allows for ease in global shipments and warehousing, leading to reduced costs.

HeiQ is also launching additional fabrics and insulation packages for HeiQ XReflex, a solution that offers the same level of warmth with up to half the reduction of insulation, reducing bulk and saving materials for apparel, sleeping bags, gloves, blankets, etc. An average insulated jacket can reduce its environmental footprint and save up to 280 gram of carbon dioxide, energy and 6 litres of water with HeiQ XReflex. This patented radiant barrier technology is now offered with one or two layers of heat reflective surface, offering up to 50 per cent less bulk at the same warmth, without effecting fabric breathability. HeiQ XReflex is also available as a scrim layer, providing an ultra-thin radiant barrier for design flexibility and logistics and cost optimisation.

“We constantly look for ways to continually improve our efficiencies and technologies at HeiQ”, says Carlo Centonze, HeiQ Group CEO. “With these new improvements to our HeiQ Fresh and HeiQ XReflex technologies, we offer better support and products to our customers to elevate and differentiate their products in the market”.
