AqFresh™ technology at Tech Textil

To find out more about our patented technology, fill in the contact form below or visit us at hall 11.0 stand #B80 at Tech Textil Frankfurt 21-24 June 2022. Our team of scientists will give visitors to our stand a demonstration of our unique technology in action. They will present a range of prototype nonwovens, textiles and PVC/PU coatings incorporating AqFresh™ along with the breakthrough performance results that have been proven. They will also offer an introduction to the amazing chemistry in action with our 3D video and 3D model, and a presentation of our sensory and GC odour testing results in a wide range of applications. Moreover, they will also share their wealth of experience impregnating AqFresh™ into a rapidly-growing broad range of nonwovens, textiles & PVC/PU coatings.


Patented Technology

AqFresh™ is a revolutionary patented odour capture technology that removes VOCs, odours, pollutants, and allergens. It uses cucurbiturils – barrel-shaped molecules with polar portals and a hydrophobic cavity to quickly capture & tightly bind unwanted molecules. AqFresh™ has been successfully impregnated into nonwovens, textiles and textile coatings to remove VOCs, odours & pollutants released by these materials themselves as well as capturing external environmental odours.

It has a broad range of applications and is being formulated into products in many industries with significant proven results, including:

  • Automotive Interiors – PVC with AqFresh™ scores well below the 3.0 threshold on the 0-6 scale of the VDA-270 standard for automotive interiors
  • Hygiene Care – Nonwovens dry impregnated with AqFresh™ have been proven to have up to 95% less urine and sweat malodour.
  • Wound Care – Reduce malodours from chronic wounds by 78% using non-woven dressings with new AqFresh™ technology
  • Home & Personal Care – AqFresh™ has been proven to significantly reduce a broad range of odours including garlic, onion, fish, sweat, urine, tobacco and many more. It can be incorporated into non-woven materials used for wipes.


Free White Paper

AqFresh™ technology can be incorporated into nonwovens through the fibre, through impregnation and through finishing – and has been proven to reduce odours without the need of a fragrance. This free white paper details the test methodology & results of sensory and analytical tests carried out on nonwovens incorporated with AqFresh™, along with key market insights.
