Chemical industry innovating in textiles in Mexico
Chemical industry in Mexico is searching for new techniques to innovate on textiles, such as repellents on clothes to keep the mosquitos away, teflon to prevent stains on the clothes, tints to dye garments into different colors without affecting the textile, among many other inventions they are working on.
“Mexico has great sectors on the country who work hard every day to propose new things for the daily life, the chemical industry is just a part of these sectors, with the new proposals they are sharing for us to work with new type of textiles to propose different designs to our customers”, said Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a jeans manufacturer in Mexico.
Four years ago, the chemical industry found out that by decreasing the input costs, the best alternative is to make their own products locally, which would help the little and medium textile companies, as right now, the textile industry in Mexico needs to import their materials from Europe and Asia, which represents a serious increase on production.
The chemical industry in Mexico is trying to develop new substances similar to the ones bought from abroad from the textile companies, which would represent having more competitive prices for finished garments, keeping them at low costs, with innovative proposals and without compromising the quality of the textiles.
Among the inventions of the chemical industry, there is a non-toxic repellent that is applied to the clothes and stays on it even after being washed, which helps people living o areas with many mosquitos to keep them away.
They have also created a dye for clothes that is twice less expensive, and at an industrial level, it represents a great advantage due to the huge quantities used on this process.
“It is great to know the textile industry in Mexico has support such as the chemical one, by helping reducing the raw materials and creating new alternatives for the clothes manufacturers as well”, added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.
