Green Theme Technologies (GTT), suppliers of the  EMPEL® water-free and PFAS-free textile finishing platform, announced a partnership with Korean-based Hwasung International, global textile provider. Hwasung International is the first Korean mill to offer EMPEL technology.

“Traditionally, the use of sustainable textile finishes such as water repellency, anti-wick and stain release meant a loss of performance. Not anymore,” says Martin Flora, president of global business development with GTT. “Forward-thinking textile suppliers such as Hwasung have now realized that EMPEL not only increases sustainability but also increases performance, creating a win-win for producers, their partner brands and the environment.”

GTT’s EMPEL platform can be applied to a wide range of synthetic knit, woven, non-woven and novel fabrics that are traditionally hard to treat, including outdoor, high fashion, footwear, automotive, furniture, workwear, athleisure wear and military. Because no water is used during the treatment application, EMPEL can remove pollution and waste from any textile manufacturing process.

“EMPEL finishes complement their remarkable textiles which combine sustainability and innovation into unique commercial textile solutions,” says DK Lee, president of Hwasung International.
