Xaar strengthens partnership with TenCate

Graphics | May 1, 2008 | By:

Xaar, an inkjet technology firm based in Cambridge, U.K., has strengthened its partnership with Dutch textiles group TenCate, which has bought a 75 percent stake of inkjet technology group Xennia, in which Xaar holds a minority interest. TenCate, which specializes in protective and lightweight material production, already works with Xaar on inkjet technology for the textile market.

Xaar, which bought into Xennia in September 2005, will enjoy a collaborative relationship with both companies on the EU-subsidized Digitex project. This project covers the development of digital textile finishing to enable functional characteristics, such as fire resistance and self-cleaning properties, to be applied to fabrics.
