Eurofins Textile Testing Spain, a global leader in analytical testing, and Tailorlux, a full-service supplier for product authenticity located in Germany, have signed an agreement to investigate commercial synergies in the textile and clothing industries. Tailorlux has created a method that can automatically check a textile's recycled content.
Online verification and machine-to-machine features pave the way for cutting-edge textile solutions. In an era of aggressive climate objectives, carbon footprints, and limited resources, digital material verification is becoming increasingly important.
In a joined press release, the companies said that fiber traceability and quantification are a specialty of Tailorlux. The technology will have an ecological imprint as a result of this collaboration. Customers of Tailorlux will soon be able to send their samples to one of the 18 Eurofins laboratories across the world.
Enrique Rivas, general manager of Eurofins Textile Testing Spain, received the first inspection kit.
The use of an enhanced viscose fiber to digitize and monitor cotton is a particular emphasis of Eurofins and Tailorlux's collaboration. Kipas has acquired a first contract to allow digital transaction certificates for more than 3,000 tonnes of recovered yarn. Retailers and brands will be able to purchase recycled items with a guaranteed recycled content ratio based on manufacturing data.
The traceability of manufactured fibers is an example of a common application. The inorganic markers can be added using a masterbatch of a liquid color or even in conjunction with titanium dioxide. For the quantification of content in textile, the client can now utilize a portable device, a device on a production line, or a mobile device.
The preservation of product and material authenticity is another use case. Tailorlux has a lot of expertise in fastening shoes with sewing threads, varnish, or polymer carriers such that they have a unique spectral code that can be scanned in the field or tested in a Eurofins lab.
Eurofins will get access to the Tailorlux algorithm, which will be used to assess and evaluate the technology's dependability by quantifying the recycled content in textiles. The composition of textiles may thus be evaluated with greater precision and their ecological footprint estimated through additional data gathering.
With hidden marks that are inextricably connected to the product, Tailorlux delivers authentication and traceability solutions. Tailorlux aims to make transparency, authenticity, and traceability a reality in the value chains of many sectors with its multidisciplinary expertise in light-emitting materials and detection.
