Unlike most other companies working in this field, we also focus on fabric treatment and product application. Any new product we bring to market is tested not only in compliance with all standard international technical and safety procedures, but also, extensively, on in excess of 200 different types of fabrics, so that we can more accurately advise our clients as to what method or process of application will work best with a particular type of fabric or garment.

We aim at a “ready to wear” philosophy, whereby customers can use our products almost out of the box in most cases, even at industrial scale, thus saving considerable time and resources. We do the research so that you do not have to.
