Addmaster signs up for cleaner textile manufacturing


Addmaster (UK) Ltd. is continuing to put sustainability front and centre if its business by partnering Bluesign, the system committed to eliminating potentially harmful substances from the textiles production process.

The Bluesign System removes harmful substances from the textile manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production.

The system ensures that the final textile product meets very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide and also provides confidence of the customer in  acquiring a sustainable product.

As a Bluesign System partner, Addmaster joins a growing number of chemical suppliers, manufacturers and brands that are committed to continuous improvement of environmental performance.

Currently over 500 companies worldwide are using Bluesign including many big brand names from the sports and outdoor industry. The Buesign system ensures sustainability in the production of textiles and unites the entire textile supply chain and consumers in turn benefit from the most stringent safety criteria.

Addmaster’s Biomaster antimicrobial technology provides durable and effective protection against both harmful and odour-causing bacteria. Biomaster can be added to any textile or fabric at any stage of production without affecting the characteristics of the material.

Addmaster also has Eco Passport certification from Oeko-Tex, the international association for research and testing in the field of textile and leather ecology.

Eco Passport is a verification procedure by which manufacturers of textile processing chemicals and chemical compounds including performance additives are able to confirm that their products can be used in sustainable textile production.

Addmaster Regulatory Manager Lesley Taylor says: “Partnering with Bluesign will ensure that we are working towards making the cleanest textiles possible and reducing our environmental impact.

The bluesign certification shows  consumers they can purchase clothing with the added benefit of reducing odour in the knowledge they are not having an adverse effect on the world around them."
