Clariant and Schoeller partner on self-cleaning finish
Dyestuff manufacturer Clariant and textile firm Schoeller Technologies AG have launched a new strategic partnership to develop the market for the self-cleaning nanotechnology-based ‘NanoSphere' textile finish.
This finishing technology is claimed to be environmentally friendly and meets the criteria set down by the bluesign standard, which certifies substances that have been rigorously tested for harmful effects to humans and the environment as well as for efficient consumption of natural resources.
