TANNEX TERGEO the high performance mineral solution
TANATEX Chemicals have turned up the heat with innovative new techniques to spark the way forward in the textile industry with the ultimate sustainable and natural product TANNEX® TERGEO. In a webvidoTANATEX published, Marco de Koning, CEO of TANATEX explains that TANNEX® TERGEO is the third generation clay based scouring & bleaching agent for bleaching of cellulosic fibres and blends. Textile producers that demand top class hydrophilicity can now reach this standard with gentle treatment and a eco-friendly, natural product
Magnificent cleaning results
TANNEX® TERGEO offers pre-treatment performance for H2O2 bleaching that reaches the highest standards by using very gentle treatment. This results in the same or even better degree of optical bright by minimal loss of weight and strength. Also TANNEX® TERGEO offers lubrification and running properties that enable unheard of uniformity of the substrate after bleeching.
An eco-friendly alternative
Clay is a natural product that replaces a significant amount of chemicals. Excavating and processing it costs just a fraction of the energy that’s needed for producing oil-based products. This ensures a very low carbon footprint.
Minimized processing costs
TANNEX® TERGEO is a high performance mineral that offers detergency, wetting, sequestering, stabilization and lubrication in one single product. This not only enables right first time and low substrate loss, TANNEX® TERGEO also keeps machines cleaner.
In the late 80s, TANATEX rediscovered the many advantages of clay as a treatment for cellulosic fibres and decided to go back to basic. They developed TANNEX® GEO and set the tone for a more environmentally friendly bleaching method. Being textile lovers, they never stopped working on the -very secret- recipe, and this year, they launch TANNEX® TERGEO. GEO 3.0, if you will, a natural product that’s fine-tuned to the needs of today’s textile manufacturers: Jo Porré, product developer at TANATEX from the very beginning: “Developing GEO is by far the greatest achievement of my professional career.”
Soft and bleached
So how does it work? TANNEX® TERGEO gets mixed with hydrogen peroxide, an eco-friendly alternative to chlorine bleach. Because of the clay in TANNEX® TERGEO, however, the fibres don’t get damaged and they don’t turn harsh as they normally would. What you get, is soft and bleached fibres while washing less chemicals down the drain. Innovative, yet natural. Natural, yet reliable.
