Environmentally Friendly Colouring Process
To Reduce The Impact Of The Textile Industry On Our Planet.
We introduce WATER ZERO® aware of both the role we play and the responsibility we have to change things by constantly challenging ourselves to rethink and recreate the industry, from the first to the last yarn.
Taking into consideration all the critical issues that the world of sustainability presents today, over the last two years MAJOTECH® has preferred to approach the subject from another angle.
In a normal fabric production and finishing cycle, water, energy and consequent emissions are critical. Just think, that to dye 1000 metres of a polyamide (nylon) fabric, an average of 4000 litres of water is used (for dyeing alone).
The entire cycle includes a scouring phase, which serves to eliminate any impurities and/or residues from the weaving phase, dyeing with the quantities indicated above, and a final washing phase. In addition to the consumption itself, the condition of the pollution in the outgoing water must be treated.
Starting from these data, MAJOTECH® has invested in the development of an alternative method to traditional dyeing, with the aim and intent of drastically reducing water and energy consumption and CO2 emissions. From this need and subsequent research, WATER ZERO® was born. This project represents the innovative and revolutionary vision of the company that wants to lead the change in the textile industry.
WATER ZERO ultralight fabric is made exclusively from recycled yarn, GRS certified and treated with fluorine free products.
No difference in terms of fastness was found in the comparison between WATER ZERO® and a fabric dyed in the traditional method. While in fastness to light tests, water zero highlights better performance. Due to the technique, WATER ZERO® is naturally windproof and downproof (to be tested according to the used insulation).
