At ISPO Munich 2017, Sympatex Technologies will introduce the “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane. To eliminate any contribution to global warming, the ecological alternative among functional textile specialists will compensate the CO2 amount of its entire yearly membrane production starting from 2017 through respective climate protection certificates in cooperation with the Munich-based consultancy ClimatePartner.

The material basis of the highly functional membrane is the Sympatex copolymer, a compound of polyester and polyether molecules. During the production, which follows specific Sympatex formulations, the company and its partner DSM have managed to considerably reduce the carbon footprint of the product.
