ACTON – The Haartz Corporation, a US-based specialty materials manufacturer active in the apparel, automotive and furniture sectors, has forged a partnership with textile finishing innovator Green Theme Technologies (GTT) to adopt its PFAS-free solutions.
Haartz will adopt GTT’s Empel range of dry-finishing formulations, which are based on a non-toxic, water-free hydrocarbon monomer solution said to outperform comparable fluorocarbon-based alternatives available on the market.
“Haartz is the perfect partner for GTT,” said Martin Flora, VP of business development for GTT. “They are world leaders in scaling finished fabric technologies through world-class manufacturing and testing facilities. With their various product categories, including apparel, furniture and automotive, our partnership brings textile innovation to North America and helps drive a positive and sizable environmental impact.”
