Unlocking Potential: Precision Spray is the Key to Sustainable Finishing

The textile industry’s history is tainted with a reputation of environmental pollution and waste. But as the industry moves towards a more sustainable future, Baldwin Technology champions that cause with solutions that can make sustainability a reality. Baldwin assists textile manufacturers, brands, and retailers in reaching their sustainability goals and enabling them to be responsible stewards of the planet. Rick Stanford, Baldwin’s Vice President of Global Business Development for Textile Technology, spoke about Baldwin’s precision spray systems for sustainable moisture and finishing chemistry in textile manufacturing.

Top of mind, Kern wanted to know if sustainability was just a buzzword around the textile industry or if there were serious efforts to reduce waste and conserve precious resources.

“Over the years, new buzzwords have come and gone, but sustainability in textiles is quite serious about achieving these goals,” Stanford said. “There’s several different types of sustainability’s within textiles.” From fiber repurposing to water reduction to an overall reduction in the carbon footprint of the supply chain, all of these efforts are consumer-driven. The Millennial and Gen Z groups want sustainability in their products, and they are demanding brands change their practices.

Still, while consumers may want more sustainable products, they aren’t necessarily willing to pay for them. So, manufacturers need to find ways to be more sustainable and keep their costs down as well. With Baldwin’s cutting-edge spray technology so vital in offset printing, they began to explore other ways these solutions could help other industries. Stanford said textiles were a natural fit.

What we offer today is our TexCoat system, precision spray technology for apply different textile finishes, “Stanford said. This process is more efficient than previous methods, reduces water and chemical consumption and saves energy.”
