The Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) has spotted a trend in innovation of epidemic-prevention textiles within its industry. To overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic, the Textile Export Promotion Project (TEPP) has integrated software and hardware for better video conferencing while providing tailor-made solutions that have created a new benchmark for business matchmaking.

When it comes to epidemic prevention textiles, the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) has recommended four manufacturers, including Asiatic Fiber Co. which is known for developing special fibres and high-performance yarns. This year, the company is promoting products from the AFC Functional Protection Series and iQmax Functional Intelligence Series.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Singtex® Industrial and its subsidiary, Magictex, have also joined the national epidemic prevention textile team. Singtex’s functional fabric can be used for personal protective equipment. Thanks to its waterproof and breathable technology, these protective products can maintain their protective performance even after 30 washes.

Grandetex Development Co. Ltd. has further collaborated with yarn mills to develop the RICH-y® multi-functional yarn, which combines masterbatch and RICH-y® elements to effectively reduce energy consumption and waste during dyeing and finishing. Such fabric has long-lasting anti-bacterial and deodorising properties, as well as UV and environmental protection capabilities, making RICH-y® the one most effective mask available on the market.

RICH-y®-made masks can be provided to buyers to help them better understand the effectiveness of RICH-y® through “Experiential Marketing” of proper epidemic prevention.

Kuen Long Textile Co., Ltd. is a professional textile fabric manufacturer with 44 years of experience in the industry. the company has joined hands with Grandetex Development to promote home furnishing fabrics, urban fashion leisure fabrics, and outdoor sports fabrics boasting eco-friendly functional antibacterial materials. Thanks to its one-stop-shop production model, Kuen Long Textile offers a variety of product combinations featuring RICH-y® and more.
