Archroma will be at Techtextil to launch its latest innovations and system solutions aimed to help textile manufacturers with optimized sustainability, productivity and value creation in their markets.

Archroma will present 9 new solution systems and 3 innovations, and will hold 2 booth events (See below).

The systems and innovations presented by Archroma have all been developed in line with the principles of “The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature”.

  • PFC-free* Smartrepel® Hydro SR, a new solution developed for the repellence of water-based soil;
  • Biocide-free OX20, a new odor-neutralizing technology newly launched by our partner SANITIZED AG;
  • Perapret® AIR, a new mineral finishing technology for air purification is activated by natural and artificial light sources and can be applied on all fabrics.


Archroma introduced its first ever solution systems at the Techtextil 2019 edition, and since then has developed more than 30 systems for technical textile and nonwoven applications.

Visitors at the booth will be able to discover 9 new systems just launched by Archroma:
  • CLEAN AIR, a mineral air purification system that stays put on all kinds of fabrics and is activated by artificial and natural light, for as long as there is light; → based on the new Perapret® AIR;

The savings, added productivity and value created by the Archroma systems are demonstrated by using the ONE WAY Impact Calculator. The Archroma ONE WAY Impact Calculator is a process simulation & calculation tool designed and used by our textile processing experts to provide our customers and partners with an accurate estimate of the process costs, resource utilization, effluent discharge quality, and CO2 emissions of the existing production process and of the newly evaluated system.

For instance, the CONSCIOUSLY DEEP system allows savings and reductions of up to 36% in process time, 64% in water consumption, 46% in energy consumption and 41% in CO2 emissions.

Visitors at the booth will also have the opportunity to discover The Safe Edge, an online platform launched by Archroma in September 2021 and allowing for instant access to product related regulatory & compliance certificates and information.


Two of the 3 innovations highlighted at the booth, PFC-free* Smartrepel® Hydro SR and biocide-free OX20, are providing new options in finishing areas currently facing scrutiny and market challenges: Repellence, and odor management.

Archroma will therefore organize two focused events where our experts will introduce the alternatives launched at the show, and help the audience understand, and navigate, the available technologies and the increasingly complex regulatory landscape.
