During the last edition of Heimtextil trade show in Frankfurt, Germany, Devan Chemicals, the Belgium-based developer of finishing technologies for textiles, launched two new bio-based solutions.

Devan, BI-OME Natural

BI-OME Natural is a natural, bio-based antimicrobial solution that guarantees an optimal freshness and hygiene for textiles. The active ingredients are the well-known Linseed oil, obtained from the dried, ripened seeds of the flax plant and Chrysanthemum, derived from the seeds of the flowers of the daisy. The active ingredients in BI-OME Natural are Organic, GMO-free, Biodegradable and Recyclable.

Devan, Tones of Cool Bio

The other new product is called Tones of Cool Bio, and it is a patented cooling technology that stimulates the textile to dissipate excessive heat from the body and to reduce the body temperature instantly. The PCMs have the form of a crystalline wax or oily liquid (depending on temperature) and is 100% plant-based.

Besides, Tones of Cool Bio has lower flammability than traditional paraffin-based PCMs. The bio-source of the technology is certified by the German DIN lab and the PCMs used are derived from sustainable, natural sources. The technology will, in first instance, only be available for bedding accessories.
