Fibre traceability becomes bio-degradable with IFG Bio and integriTEX

IFG Asota and Tailorlux are planning to expand the current portfolio of tracer fibres that make cotton and cashmere traceable. The Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a bio-based solution that is the next level carrier of the optical fingerprint solution, a patented technology of Tailorlux.

The inorganic tracers are customised to a spectral code that has been integrated in PP and PA6 with IFG Asota before. The idea to implement this solution in IFG Bio is consistent with market demands.

Tobias Herzog, Managing Director of Tailorlux: “The pilot line in Linz is the perfect place to test new tracer fibre developments for our customers. It is fascinating that a tracer fibre can be made from sugar cane”.
