HIGH IQ® intelligent effects
HIGH IQ® Repel performance assurance program is designed to help mills, brands and retailers meet global demand for eco-friendly apparel with rain and stain protection. Combining innovative durable water repellent finishes with unparalleled technical expertise, the HIGH IQ®
Repel program provides durable eco-friendly and sustainable protection for every performance need: everyday, outdoor and extreme adventures.
HIGH IQ® Lasting White performance assurance program delivers very high and brilliant whites on cellulosic fibres, combining our latest generation of well-known UVITEX® Fluorescent Whitening Agents. With environment-friendly fluorinated (C6) or non-fluorinated stain repel and release technologies, the fluorescent whitening agents used under the HIGH IQ® Lasting White program ensure garments keep looking new for longer.
HIGH IQ® Lasting colour performance assurance program is powered by specially selected NOVACRON® dyes. Fabrics made using the HIGH IQ® Lasting colour program will not fade, and there is little risk of colour staining on other garments during washing.
HIGH IQ® Lasting colour eco performance assurance program relies on Huntsman’s awardwinning AVITERA® SE reactive dyes to reduce water and energy consumption by up to 50 per cent compared to best-available technologies. Excellent washing-off performance shortens processing time and increases productivity.
HIGH IQ® Cool Comfort moisture management program allows garments to breathe while transporting moisture away from the body through its quick-dry properties. The unique technology reduces post-exercise chill, making the effects highly suitable for sports and active wear.
