Litrax CEO Felix B. Stutz said that, “We work with clients and brands worldwide to meet existing challenges and supply custom-designed and cost-effective solutions to the specific technical requirements of companies, whether large or small,” Also, “Our background is in the research and development of innovative materials for smart garments and we cooperate with government co-funded research institutes worldwide on specific applications.”

Felix Stutz comments that, “L11 allows PA6 filament and BCF fibre producers to finally adopt fully inherent halogen-free flame retardant performance for garments, home textiles and carpets,” Also, “This product is currently being reviewed by some of the leading global BCF and PA6 filament producers, prior to its official introduction at the Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress in Austria in September. We are targeting a market volume of an annual 400,000 tons from 2020 onwards.”

The company is a specialist in the interaction of pigments, polymers and additives, with tailored formulations for fibres, yarns, fabrics and nonwovens and masterbatches. it’s very likely that Swiss-headquartered Litrax has the solution, whatever functional performance you’re looking for in a fabric.

One key progress that is currently achieving huge-scale success in a range of end markets is the company’s L2 Thermo, a thermal performance additive for polymer masterbatches, staple fibres and filaments and nonwoven insulation. L2 provides rapid and significant warming of between 10-13°C, compared to that of fabrics constructed from virgin PET, which has a warming value of only around 2.9°C. Its CLO values for insulation are meanwhile significantly higher than any other product on the market, starting at 2.6 CLO with 100gsm insulation.

The Litrax solution for cooling is L5 Cooling, which combined with a suitable fibre cross section can provide enhanced cooling on the skin, as well as hydrophilicity. It is available as an additive for polymer masterbatches and most suitable for PA6 and PA6.6 filaments, and also as a liquid for textile and garment finishing.

L2 Thermo is already widely employed by global companies in the outdoor and sportswear, automotive, bedding, corporate wear and underwear markets, with rapid and solid growth anticipated in the next few years.

The latest and most promising introduction from Litrax is L11, a halogen-free flame retardant PA6 additive.
