141 Thousand Products With Cancer Risk Were Confiscated

Products worth of 14 billion dollars in the group of textile, ready-made garment, shoe and leather craft products were put under a carcinogenic test in the year 2015. In the inspections, China, having taken the first place among the countries that import “dirty” products, was followed by India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

As it is in the whole world, the products that contain carcinogenic or unsafe materials threaten the human health at high levels in Turkey. During the inspections held in the past 5 years, while 141 thousand products including the baby products, toys, stationary, and ready-made garments were confiscated due to various reasons, a significant amount of them were destroyed. The importing companies were fined with a total of 4 million 757 thousand TL.

In the 9th International Textile Symposium held by the Center of Textile and Ecologic Test Research Development Center (EKOTEKS), the officials from the Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Customs and Trade announced the results of the survey based on different criteria concerning the unsafe products that threaten the health.

İHKİB President Tanrıverdi: “Imported products worth of 14 billion dollars underwent cancer test in 2015”

Having spoken at the opening of symposium, Istanbul Ready-Made Clothing and Garment Exporters Union (İHKİB) Chairman Hikmet Tanrıverdi stated that products worth of 14 billion dollars within the product groups of textile, ready-made garment, shoe and leather craft went under inspection only in the year 2015.

Underlining that uncontrolled and uninspected production increase the likelihood of the diseases with cancer as the most prominent that threaten the human health, Tanrıverdi stated that an approach focused on price and high profit disregards the public health completely.  Tanrıverdi emphasized that through the inspections conducted by the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Customs and Trade, they undertake the duty of shield against the products that contain carcinogenic materials or considered unsafe.

Meral Karaaslan: “76 thousand products out of 2,6 million were found unsafe in the year 2015”

Head of the Ministry of Customs and Trade Consumer Protection and Market Surveillance Department Meral Karaaslan gave information regarding the results of the inspection run by the ministry.

Karaaslan stated that 76 thousand 479 products out of 2 million 608 thousand 145 products in total that underwent inspection were found to be unsafe in the year 2015, and the companies responsible of these products in question were fined with 1 million 869 thousand 619 liras. Explaining that the unreliability of the toys that were inspected previous year was 7,5%, Karaaslan also stated that this rate was around 3,3% in stationary and 5,9% in textile.

Alper Sadık Tokgözlü: We inspected products worth of 14 billion dollars

Head of the Ministry of Economics General Directorate of Export Department of Monitoring and Evaluation of the Export Policies Alper Sadık Tokgözlü also gave information during his speech about the results of the inspection conducted within the framework of Inspection Based on Risk. Explaining that they inspected imported products worth of 14 billion dollars last year, Tokgözlü informed that 14 thousand 875 products out of 1 million 156 thousand 179 declared products were subjected to analysis. Tokgözlü stated that 133 of the specimens in question came out to be “dirty”.

 

Prof. Dr. Rasim Meral: Clothes sold for 3-5 TL carry cancer risk

Prof. Dr. Rasim Meral from Istanbul University Institute of Oncology stated that especially low-income families preferred the clothes sold for 3 – 5 TL in bazaars for being cheap but these products carry cancer risk. Explaining that products that do not comply with the standards cause many health problems including skin and bladder cancer, Meral added:

“The biggest known cancer threat in textile dyes is the azo-dyes. Mostly the companies in countries of Far East and South-east Asia origin such as China and India prefer azo-dye colorants due to being cheap and proving very vibrant colors at the same time. Many countries including Turkey prohibited the use and import of the azo-dyes. We observe a decline in the cancer cases based on the tobacco products as a result of the fight started in our country against cigarettes. As with the cigarettes, I believe that we will achieve a decrease in cancer cases if the use of carcinogenic dyes is prohibited.”

Stating that Turkey has met all the EU criteria in the production of textile and ready-made garment, EKOTEKS Chairman of the Executive Board Nilgün Özdemir said: “We can meet with problems in imported products. Therefore, our consumers must pay attention to the country where the products they purchased are made”.

Therefore, our center will serve as a complementary institution at the point of our companies’ producing products with added-value”.

Advanced Antimicrobial Additives Designed For Flexible Polymer Applications

Companies that use biocidal products to protect polymers and textiles from bacterial and fungal growth were faced with many changes in recent years. Regulatory developments limit the available types of biocides. For example, OBPA was the mostly used biocide to protect PVC and other plastics. Producers now need to find alternatives since OBPA was withdrawn from the sale in the EU in January 2013. The commonly used alternatives like DCOIT, BBIT, zinc pyrithione or IBPC have different limitations related to the various flexible polymer applications.

Especially outdoor applications have increased requirements regarding the antimicrobial effectiveness after UV and water exposure. In addition, an additive should have no effect on yellowing after UV exposure.

The used alternatives weaken this. But these are key requirements such as sufficient heat stability for the application process, initial discoloration as well as compatibility with other additives in the formulation.

Sanitized AG developed a new product Sanitized® PL 14-32 as a highly effective and long-lasting antimicrobial protection for flexible polymer applications. Besides thermal stability and compatibility with most formulations, Sanitized® PL 14-32 provides water resistance as well as high UV resistance and no yellowing after UV exposure. It protects the material against unwanted effects of microbes, like bacteria, mold, mildew, yeast and algae – all of which can cause material destruction, unsightly stains, cross contamination, odor development and biofilm formation. Beside thermal and color stability, the antimicrobial efficiency was checked in several formulations. The product is supported under the EU`s Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) and the active substances are approved under the US EPA.

TRÜTZSCHLER EXHIBITS ITS ENTIRE TECHNOLOGY AT ITMA ASIA 2016

Many machines for spinning preparation will be exhibited for the first time in Asia.

With TC 15, 15 % more productivity: A whole range of individual measures ensures a performance increase of 15% compared to the predecessor machine. One example is the new web doffer with significantly reduced tension drafts. The result: Increased sliver evenness and improved running behavior.

With T-MOVE, saving space and increasing efficiency: The new can filling station does more than just save space.  The new moving head allows a can change at high delivery speeds. This improves card efficiency. The service life of the cans increases because they do not have to be moved during can change. Naturally, T-MOVE is designed for the new JUMBO CANS.

TC 10, the most successful card in China: Made in China – for China. The Card TC 10 is the card for the Chinese market. This Trützschler card in the traditional working width of one meter has been specifically designed for the Chinese market.

With IDF 2, Considerable savings due to process reduction while simultaneously improving yarn quality: With the Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2 it is possible to produce cotton rotor-spun yarns in the entire yarn count range without additional draw frame passages. These cost savings are simple to achieve without compromising yarn quality.

TD 9T, TW3IN breaker draw frame; the new concept: The Trützschler TWIN draw frame has no efficiency coupling of the two deliveries. This results in approx. 15% increased overall efficiency compared to double head draw frames.

TD 8, new can changer for the established autoleveller draw frame: Now, for the first time, there is also an underfloor can changer for small cans. This simplifies the operation significantly.

TD 8C is a single head technology with the space advantages of a double head draw frame: The space-saving COMPACT installation of the leveler draw frames is achieved without the disadvantages of conventional double head draw frames.

TCO 12A, comber for automatic lap change and automatic piecing: More flexibility is not possible. The Toyota-Trützschler combing mill offers manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic lap transport. The Comber TCO 12A is equipped with an automatic lap change with automatic piecing.

JUMBO CANS, increase in economic efficiency and quality improvement: The new JUMBO CANS with 1,200 mm diameter hold 43% more sliver than regular cans with 1,000 mm diameter. The new Trützschler cards, draw frames and combers have been designed for this new, more economic can format.

This means less can transports and increased efficiency of the downstream machine due to longer runtimes in the creel. The quality is improved by a reduction in sliver piecings. Depending on the size of the spinning mill, this results in several hundred thousand piecings less per year.

T-BLEND, higher precision at twice the production: When dealing with fiber blends, the accuracy of weighing systems is unbeatable. The new Trützschler development T-BLEND also relies on accurate weighing instead of indirect volumetric measurement methods. Based on a series of measures it was possible to double the performance per weigh pan. The new Modular Fiber Blending System T-BLEND combines maximum precision and high production.

T-SCAN, five technologies work hand in hand for highest separation rates: In the new Foreign Part Separator T-SCAN TS-T5, five detection technologies ensure all-time high separation efficiency:

F-module Detection of colored parts

G-module Detection of shiny parts

P-module Detection of transparent and semi-transparent parts

UV-module Detection of fluorescent parts

LED-module Detection of smallest thread-shaped parts

T-DATA, data quality with Trützschler sensor technology: The quality and production data system T-Data processes more than just the regular data. Trützschler sensors are used to determine neps in the card sliver, distances of carding elements or actual energy consumption of the machines. The web-based T-DATA ensures mobile availability of all these data.

Nonwovens

Trützschler Nonwovens puts emphasis on machines and concepts that are particularly sought-after in the Chinese market. The division provides information on new components as well as progress in processes and products.

A modular system for fiber preparation

Established components and new developments are the modular systems available to customers to arrange their individual fiber preparation.

,For nonwoven installations, the joint development with Trützschler Spinning includes bale opening, high-precision and simultaneously high-productive weighing units as well as the advanced conveyor belt with blending opener.

Nonwovens from the thermobonder – now also structured

A patent-pending, exchangeable structuring shell allows the production of bulky webs with permanent 3D structures during bonding in the through-air thermobonder.

SkyWind – a master roll winder for spunlace systems

Hydroentangled wipes are often produced on large systems. For this area of application, Trützschler Nonwovens developed the master roll winder SkyWind. Equipped with surface drive, it is characterized by robustness, simple operation and high availability.

Wet-in-wet process – nonwovens with special characteristics

Flushable wipes, standard cleaning cloths, coating substrata and technical felts are only a few examples of the end uses for wet-laid and hydroentangled webs. Meanwhile the second Voith-Trützschler system has been successfully put into operation in China.

Man-Made Fibers

Trützschler Man-Made Fibers informs about two new developments in the area of carpet yarn systems. The first one is high-performance, three-end machine concept and the second one an inline system for the production of BCF quality yarns from recycled polyester.

M30 – 3 BCF bobbins in one sweep

The M30 is the latest member of the symTTex system family. The 3-end machine completes the range of 2-end and 4-end BCF machines.

Thus, the optimal machine configuration for every application can be custom-made.

R-PET BCF – Carpet yarns made from bottle flakes

Trützschler Man-Made Fibers and EREMA Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen GmbH have entered into a cooperation in the area of recycled materials, particularly R-PET. For the new inline BCF solution, EREMA supplies a VACUREMA basic system and secondary components that produce a de-contaminated polymer melt. The downstream spinning positions from Trützschler Man-Made Fibers spin the material into high-quality carpet yarns.

Card Clothing

In the area of spinning, our flats selection has been expanded by two products for special applications:

NOVOTOP 58: is optimally suited for the application in the area of fine combed yarns at production speeds of up to 65 kg/h and machine width of one meter. A significant positive influence of the carding process is achieved by improvements in terms of tooth geometry, wire height, surface smoothness and the wire tips themselves. The air flow in the carding zone between cylinder and flat is optimized. This also significantly reduces fiber adherence and fiber breakage.

NOVOTOP 30: The flat clothing NOVOTOP 30 has been newly developed for the processing of coarse and/or dyed fibers and reclaimed fibers for rotor spinning.  It is ideally suited for use with yarn counts below Ne 10 and realizes high production speeds.

The flat types NT 30 and NT 58 are available as MAGNOTOP and CLASSICTOP.

GX1 cylinder clothing: Our new GX1 clothing has been specifically developed for use in the area of carded and combed cotton. Thanks to improved fiber guidance it allows an optimal fiber transfer and thus significantly better nep separation. This new development results in considerably improved raw material utilization.

Cylinder clothing with 717 ppsi: Our newly developed clothing with 717 ppsi achieves particularly good carding results for coarse to medium-coarse fibers, especially in the area of reclaimed fibers. Here it allows an optimal fiber transfer and greatly reduces fiber adherence.

NOVOBOND

In the area of Nonwovens we are presenting our new NOVOBOND clothes. The use of this clothing on the condensed roller is recommended when processing PES and PP with CV blends. The special geometry of the tip ensures a very good web adherence up to high speeds. The NOVOBOND clothes are available with 96 ppsi up to 244 ppsi.

Trützschler and EREMA Cooperate On Inline BCF Systems For R-PET

After having worked successfully together during the past year, both companies have signed an agreement on the cooperation in the area of reclycled materials, especially of R-PET. The cooperation covers BCF lines which produce carpet yarns by spinning reclycled polyester or blends of virgin PET chips and recycled flakes. The overall spectrum of products offered includes a VACUREMA Basic Line and secondary components from EREMA which feed the inline connected symTTex spin positions of Trützschler Man-Made Fibers with a high-quality polymer melt.

For cost reasons, recovered secondary raw materials, such as flakes from used PET bottles, have long been a popular commodity in both the plastic and in the fiber industry. Since the quality of the raw material plays a decisive role when spinning thermoplastic polymers, the bottle flakes have to be treated with special care. EREMA’s VACUREMA technology offers modular solutions with a vacuum reactor, a directly connected single-screw extruder and a high-performance filter for this process step. The high quality of the melt with respect to viscosity (IV value) and purity lays the foundation for top-quality filaments. The upstream processes have little impact on the directly following spinning process, since only small pressure fluctuations occur during backwashing or screen changes. Trützschler’s R-PET-spinning technology is based on the proven system components for spinning primary chips. The process involves the well-known spin packs and the double-shell godets, the HPc-texturing system and the fully automatic winder. Existing customers will appreciate the use of the same key components for operation of the R-PET plant.

The support of process and product development for recycled polyester through process engineering in Winterthur is part of the package.

Last year, Trützschler and EREMA jointly developed a carpet yarn plant for BCF yarns from recycled PET on customer demand. While the reactor, the extruder and the polymer filters were delivered by EREMA, Trützschler Man-Made Fibers was responsible for spinning, drafting and winding. The plant is very flexible, so that both yarns from 100% recycled material or blends with PET primary granules can be spun. The BCF yarns are used for various applications.
