Technical Absorbents to present innovative solutions at VIATT

February 15, 2024 - United Kingdom

Technical Absorbents will head to Vietnam to display Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF), Fabrics and Yarns at the Vietnam International Trade Fair for Apparel, Textiles and Textile Technologies (VIATT). Organised by Messe Frankfurt, the event – which will take place between February 28 and March 1 in Ho Chi Minh City – is promoted as a one-stop sourcing platform for all textile industry needs.

The company has opted for a small booth – #A-L18, Hall A – and will also present a paper at the event conference to educate visitors about the versatility of the unique superabsorbent technologies.

"Vietnam is the third largest textile and apparel exporter, and one of the highest importers of textile machinery in the world," said commercial director Paul Rushton. "As a company it is a region that we have monitored the growth of for some time."

"Vietnam’s textile and garment industry achieved staggering annual growth of 20–26 per cent from 2018 – 2022, and high-quality textile materials are increasingly sought-after for production. We feel that now is the time that there could be real development opportunities for our absorbent fibre, fabric, and spun yarn technology. We have already established tolling partners in Asia that can process our fibres and convert them into a wide range of absorbent nonwoven fabrics. We also work with industrial knitters who can take our yarns and make extremely flexible absorbent woven materials. Current growth areas for our technology are within wound care, premium incontinence and period products, moisture management and cooling within the apparel sector, dewatering of oils and fuels and geotextiles for waterproofing," explained Rushton.

"During the event, I will be providing an overview of our unique technology at the conference and would be keen to talk to anyone who is keen to learn more or potentially trial our absorbent materials in their products," he concluded.
