Following an overwhelmingly positive international reception at ITMA 2015 in Milan, Italy, APJeT will showcase its revolutionary Atmospheric Dry Plasma Process for applying durable finishes to multiple substrates at Techtextil NA 2016. In 2015 APJeT opened new corporate offices in Research Triangle Park, NC, USA, with both pilot and production scale equipment.
The APJeT Dry Plasma Process uses atmospheric plasma to cure durable finishes to textiles and other substrates, including nonwovens and film, and has little to no effect on fabric hand or color. It also safely treats fabrics and other substrates, such as films, made from heat-sensitive fibers and materials.
Planet friendly, APJeT’s patented dry plasma process removes water from the finishing process and also significantly reduces the energy and chemicals needed to achieve a durable, high performance finish, says the company.
“The response to the technology and the advanced capabilities offered through our new offices was very positive at ITMA,” said Martha Miller, Vice President of Business Development at APJeT. “There was a great deal of excitement, especially from industries struggling with the water issues tied to traditional finishing processes because we offer a clear alternative that is both effective and sustainable.”
Miller added, “With APJeT’s new RTP facility we have increased our production and development capabilities, and can run scalable trials. This is important news for companies in a wide variety of industries looking for a sustainable and effective alternative to water-based finishing.”
