Recron FS is displaying new textile solutions at Heimtextil, the international trade fair for home and contract textiles, in hall 4.0. The exhibition is being held from January 8-11, 2019. Recron FS is the brand of innovative, flame-retardant polyesters from Reliance Industries (RIL), the largest integrated polyester producer in the world, based in India.
By partnering with the innovative and high quality mills across EU, the collection showcased at this Heimtextil expo is testament to the sheer variety of attractive, safe fabrics that are possible through using Recron FS products, according to a media statement by RIL.
Whether it be upholstery, curtains, furnishing in transportation industries, or theatre seat covers, Recron FS ensures that the right fire-retardant solution is available to the entire EU value chain. In terms of fabric testing and certification and trademark service, Recron FS is rolling out digitised systems to ensure the trust on the fire safety aspect is visible across every level of the supply chain. In addition to these service and the always-present technical support, Recron FS is also setting up marketing and promotional support services across various offline and digital channels.
The physical and chemical bonding of phosphorous with polyester matrix makes fire retardancy permanent. This helps in the creation of a textile raw material that doesn’t allow fire to spread easily. And thus, fabrics made from Recron FS possess the unique ability to provide everlasting fire safety in any application and every instance.
Recron FS gives the desired fire protection for the entire fabric requirement across home textiles, transportation, public spaces, offices, hospitals etc. Since it is Oekotex Standard 100 (a stringent worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished and finished textile products) certified, it can be used to make fabrics that require the most stringent human-ecological standards established for baby products.
The key features of fibres that weavers look for are all embedded in Recron FS. It aids in the creation of high quality, easy-to-care and durable end products and offers excellent dye-ability, easy care and abrasion resistance properties. It does not need any special chemical processing or extra care in washing or drying.
In addition to strong technical support and promotional services, Recron FS will ensure that all fabrics undergo rigorous fire retardant tests. RIL extends its support to the fabric makers to install a sustainable process to make permanently flame-retardant fabrics. In case any fabric does not pass the tests, the Recron FS team will work with the fabric maker to identify the problems and find solutions for it. (GK)
