New partners for Techmer PM

August 1st, 2016 / By: / Industry News

Techmer PM, a Clinton, Tenn., materials design company, has created customized materials to help tag and authenticate polymer-based fiber materials as part of a partnership with Applied DNA Sciences (ADNAS) Inc., a Stonybrook, N.Y., provider of DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting, genotyping and anti-theft technology; and Palmetto Synthetics, Kingstree, S.C. ADNAS’ SigNature T DNA molecular tags were attached to Techmer PM polyester formulations and supplied to Palmetto, a leader in the production of high-quality specialty synthetic fiber. The Techmer PM formulation is a component of a system of solutions for fiber including colors and additives. Palmetto used the materials to manufacture polyester fiber, which was converted into synthetic fabrics for commercial and industrial applications. The initial stage tagged five million pounds of PET fiber and will be subsequently scaled up to many millions of pounds over the next year.
