Complimentary strengths

Holger Beule, Sales Director of Klopman International, is delighted about the opportunities the cooperation presents: ”synergo  is a powerful range. It perfectly complements our existing fabric portfolios and offers a package of solutions for the most varied end-use applications. The name synergo reflects the synergy of strength“. Antonio A.

As we are facing the challenge of increasing standards and requirements in the working world, Synergo provides solutions with accredited safety.

“Stretch fabrics including soft-shells, are one of the highlights of synergo. Depending on the end-user requirements, customers can choose between natural stretch options, stretch provided by the use of EME (LYCRA T400 fibre from INVISTA), or 2- and 4-way stretch fabrics using high quality elastane yarns. All are constructed for lasting fit and comfort, based on extremely durable stretch, outstanding wash and wear properties as well as a high level of breathability and excellent moisture management.  Bonded soft-shell options are ideal for use in jackets as well as in trousers.

For highest levels of protection

Synergo multipro fabrics offer highest levels of EN accredited protection for workers in multi-risk areas who are often exposed to several hazards at a time, e.g. from heat and flame or uncontrolled discharge from static build-up. This is where inherently flame retardant fibres or flame retardant finishes offer reliable protection and wearer safety.

High visibility options certified to EN 471 are also available for extra safety in low-light conditions or other risk areas. For multifunctional comfort, customers can choose from a selection of specialised finishing technologies such as 3XDRY, the moisture management system, or NanoSphere, offering highest levels of repellency to water and heavy soiling. ecorepel offers a fluorocarbon-free alternative among water repellent finishes. In addition, coldblack contributes to superior wearer comfort by providing durable protection against heat and harmful UV rays in direct sunlight.
