WUERRETEX by Filo d'Oro launches at Premiere Vision a preview of the first cutting-edge treatment
Filo d’Oro (name inspired by the small silk cocoons that, kissed by the sun, look like “nuggets of light”), the business network and micro-chain of Made in Italy silk, returns to Premiere Vision in the Smart Creation Area, the exhibition corner dedicated to realities that have shown a concrete commitment to responsible innovation and looking for sustainable new generation solutions, to present WUERRETEX, a smart waterproofing process that takes place directly on the wire.
Not only a cutting-edge method of processing and waterproofing, but a real revolution that is also actively oriented towards sustainability.
Filo d’Oro, made up of local entities such as A.M. Taborelli Srl, Clerici Tessuto & C. SpA, Comofil Srl - Tintoria Filati Portichetto Srl - Ambrogio Pessina Srl, GT 2000 Srl, Iride Srl, Ongetta Srl, Saraink srl, Tessilbiella Srl, Tintoria Iltep Srl, TOT Srl., ensures quality and response time to the market at the highest level thanks to the ability to fully control all the processing phases.
The integration of the companies along the value chain allows to have the right “know how” and the “savoir faire” that is needed to create a product of absolute excellence, giving all the network participants - and their customers - innovation and research available in the various stages of the supply chain.
WUERRETEX was born from a dedicated and in-depth study lasting 12 months in collaboration with the researchers of the Chemistry Department of the Universita degli Studi dell’Insubria, that led to the creation of a new and exclusive ennobling process that allows to obtain the water-repellent effect on the yarns, be it natural, artificial or synthetic.
The application of the particular process directly on the thread immediately transforms the fabric into water-repellent one, thus eliminating the part of post treatments or finishing that has a significant environmental impact, as well as modifying the natural hand of the garment and the characteristics of the fabric.
The processing is fluorine-free and formaldehyde-free.
In addition it doesn’t release bioaccumulative substances, those that accumulate within an organism through all possible absorption pathways.
Another important result of the processing is the guarantee of preservation of the natural permeability and breathability of the garment worn and a high water-repellent effect even after multiple dry cleaning.
A curiosity that completes this innovative and interesting development regards the manufacturing logo. Wuerretex’s was born from the imagination and work of the students of a 5th class of the ISIS Setificio Paolo Carcano school in Como.
An involvement of the territory therefore, which confirms Filo d’Oro association as one of the key realities of the sector that also safeguards our Made in Italy.
