Finishing with Perfection at ITMA 2023

June 6, 2023

Baldwin Technology Company Inc. is excited to show the textile supply chain how to “Finish with Perfection” at ITMA 2023 with its TexCoat™ G4 precision spray finishing system.

ITMA 2023 will be held June 8-14 at the Fiera Milano Rho Exhibition Centre (Milan). Baldwin will demonstrate TexCoat G4 from Stand H-14-C205, as well as its Plasma Pure treater. ITMA participants can stop by and “touch” Baldwin’s wide array of TexCoat G4-applied fabric samples from textile mills around the world and experience what precision finishing “feels” like. Experts will be on hand to discuss how Baldwin Technology can assist in transitioning the textile supply chain to reach their sustainability and carbon footprint goals while improving performance and saving money.

“Since its introduction at ITMA 2015 in Milan, global textile finishers have embraced TexCoat and reaped the benefits,” said Rick Stanford, Baldwin’s VP Global Business Development, Textiles. “They have been able to increase profitability, cut energy use, and reduce their carbon footprint in addition to exercising precision control with patented precision spray technology.”

In the context of a cost-sensitive global economy and an increased focus by brands, consumers and regulatory agencies on sustainability, customers are placing a premium on sustainability-advantage textile production. TexCoat G4’s non-contact spray technology offers numerous advantages compared to old and commodified methods of applying finishing chemistry.

TexCoat G4 processes a wide range of low-viscosity water-based chemicals, such as durable water-repellants including PFAS-free, softeners, anti-microbials, easy-care and flame retardants, just to name a few. The company’s technology uses the same chemicals as found in traditional pad baths with no special auxiliaries required.

In addition to TexCoat G4, Baldwin is offering its Plasma Pure treatment for textiles. The system enhanced and more efficient dyeing, coating and lamination of textiles and nonwovens. Its ceramic electrodes generate an air plasma used to efficiently treat the fabric surface. Key benefits include dramatically improved absorption and adhesion properties of the fabric, boosting productivity while enhancing the absorption properties with an optimized and uniform dyeing result and a significant acceleration of the absorption process. Laminated fabrics benefit from Plasma Pure technology with greater bonding strength.
