The event, which takes place in Miami between 23-25 April will be the ideal opportunity for the Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF) manufacturer to show how the company and its product range have progressed over the past few years.
In addition to its SAF technology, TAL will also be displaying different SAF-based fabrics and yarns, which are now used with a variety of industries and applications. Examples of new water-blocking geotextiles, water reservoir agrotextiles, filtration media, and wound care fabrics will be on display. It will also have on show its KoolSorb coolant fabric, which is a finalist within the Roll Goods Category of the exhibitions Achievement Awards.
“TAL has steadily progressed its business strategy which is focused on enhancing its innovation and development capabilities,” explains TAL Business Development Manager Dave Hill. “TAL is now seen as a solutions provider, rather than just a raw material manufacture of SAF.”
“The relationships that it has established with not only converters, but in some cases whole supply chains, have made generating new ideas and developing these into usable products a much smoother and efficient process.”
The latest example of this is KoolSorb, which is patent-pending. “Creating a washable super absorbent fabric was not easy,” continues Dave. “It is a concept that many would have laughed at. However, it has been achieved and the recognition it has already received from within the industry has been tremendous.
“We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the TAL stand (111) and sharing with them some of our successes.”
