Although there had been feeble sings of economic upturn in
Europe, Italy’s present-day situation remains dramatic due
to domestic market stagnation and sociopolitical instability.
From 2009 to 2012, 75% of Italian companies had been
forced to a downsize and 3,8% had literally disappeared.
The economic crisis is a devastating reality for any production area and the shift of workforce and assets to the East is
an ever-growing phenomenon. In such a scenario, there had
been some repositioning attempts and exports are partially
the only one damper for many of companies, since internationalization processes – without
real competitive factors – bring only poor benefits to the domestic area.
Today, public debt isn't the first emergency anymore. On the contrary economic growth
and labour market are the most important issues to be solved. As far as Textile&Clothing is
textile districts registered decreases from 3% to 40% in 2012 and the national market records
10,2% consumption collapse of garments and footwear while exports grew only by 0,7%.
In this situation, the most frequent suggestions are fallacies: “We’re still the best, our quality
is higher, we need more rules against imports…” up to trivial objective: we need to focus
on luxury products. For those that work in this specific area, this strategy is an additional
chance to strengthen themselves. On the other hand, it’s an easy way of escape for those
public bodies responsible for planning and supporting development and internationalization
policies. This way, they are indeed discharged from reviewing concretely technological
development policies and market repositioning strategies.
But how many companies are able to cope with the luxury sector and the global market
demand? The Italian Textile&Clothing sector counts dozen thousand companies and hundreds of thousand workers and it’s difficult to imagine that launching into luxury could be
a solution for the severe labour market situation.
The main Italian weakness is that the strategic potential of technological innovation is not
recognized as a competitive factor, while Europe is focusing exactly on this field. European
Union is indeed engaged in supporting long-time research and development projects as well
as Germany, France, the Netherland are promoting mid and long-term national plans focusing on technological development.
The Far East growth itself is not taking place by chance. While obsolete development plans
ofWestern countries are more and more unsuitable, Eastern countries are in full technological growth. Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Shanghai and Singapore aren’t romantic places of the past
anymore. They had become boundless ultra-technological megalopolis.
Scientific excellence is the main growth resource. In confirmation of that, the number of
registered patents is constantly increasing as well as research funding and, by now, the most
suitable countries for coping with the long-term challenges of globalization are really those
who had put in action policies based on technological innovation, research and scientific
On the contrary, the Italian scenario is dramatic. While some keep on insisting on the opportunity that luxury could give to the Italian industry, research and university funding has
been almost cut off and economic support to companies for the development of innovating
technological tools has been quite suspended.
Without investments only one horizon is possible: the economic sunset.

New safety system for airplanes against bombing attacks
The threat posed by terrorists to commercial flights has been clear since the Lockerbie disaster, and even clearer On September 11, 2001.
Despite continuous efforts of border control bodies and policy makers, aircraft security
is facing ever-increasing threats from terrorist organisations: the “Christmas day bombing
attempt” on the Amsterdam-Detroit flight on December 25th, 2009 and the “Cargo plane
bombing plot” of October 29th, 2010 are the confirmation that new technologies and solutions should be implemented against terrorist threats.
The possibility that a small quantity of an explosive, large
enough to cause fatalities, passes through a security scan cannot be ruled out. The rise in worldwide terrorism requires
measures be taken to harden aircraft against catastrophic inflight failure due to concealed explosives.
The FLY-BAG research project (co-funded by European Commission under FP7) provided an innovative and effective solution for the threat of explosive concelaed in luggage or parcels,
by developing and successfully testing a blast-resistant flexible
textile luggage container.
The project, coordinated by D’Appolonia, was carried out by a
consortium of 8 partners belonging to 5 European countries.
Activities were concluded in 2011 with the successful test of
one of the prototypes developed: the container, featuring a multilayered textile structure and the use of nanostructured coatings, was tested against a series of blasts of increasing power,
until reaching the (confidential) target charge, a quantity that
would be able to cause fatal damages to an airplane should it
explode mid-flight. The innovative nature of the project earned
the consortium a number of prizes all over Europe, among
whom the Techtextil Innovation Award 2011, the Italian National Innovation Prize, the Lufthansa Cargo Innovation Challenge,
Materialica, and the mention within the 50 most innovative projects for year 2011 by the European Commission. The project
consortium, strengthened by the addition of 5 new partners, is
bringing on the work performed in the first research project,
with a follow-up project named FLY-BAG2, presently ongoing
and set to end in 2015. Aim of the new project is to exploit the
knowledge generated in the previous project to develop new
devices for protecting both the cargo hold and the passenger
cabin, and to enlarge the experimental validation of the concepts by performing full scale blast tests on retired aircrafts. The
full scale tests are foreseen for the first half of 2015.
High resistance zip
A high resistance zip closure is used
as an opening to access the interior of
the bag. The zip employs a polymeric
resin to reach extreme cross-tensional
strengths, of the order of 20 tons/m.
The choice of a zip closure as the
opening was taken in conjunction with
partner airline MERIDIANA, with aim of
guaranteeing blast resistance but also,
equally important, easy and fast handling by the ground crew.
Multifunctional textiles
The FLY-BAG and FLY-BAG2 blast
mitigation units use multilayered textile
configurations in which each layer has a
definite function:
• Catching high speed debris ejected by
the detonation (shrapnel)
• Containment of overpressure
• Energy absorption by controlled
• Fire/heat resistance
Waterbased crosslinkable
polyamide pastes
Improved formulations for coating and
laminating by Bozzetto group
Since many years Paste Dot coating is used for the production of fusible interlinings.
A standard paste formulation contains an thermoplastic hotmelt powder and can
be reactivated independently from the storage time. The so coated substrate will be
laminated with a textile outer fabric on fusing presses by using temperature, pressure
and time.

The coated substrates are used as fusible interlinings for the garment industry and
combined with different shell fabrics on the melting presses.
The process is controlled by regulating temperature, pressure and time. The purpose
of interlinings is to reinforce the shell fabric in order to provide a good supporting
shape to the ready-made garment.

The paste dot technology exists since 35 years; it is the main application for nonwovens.
The idea for the development of a cross-linkable paste was originally dedicated for
the paste dot coating of interlinings. The basic problem of this technology is the
long storage time between coating and
the final fusing process. This time gap
could be as long as of several months.
So far it was not possible to find a solution for this problem since a stabilized
formulation of our cross-linkable paste
is only possible with protonizing of the
hotmelt-aminogroups. This means the
paste has to be applied at a acid pH-value 3 and this will occur some processing

the good resistances to washing and dry

The lamination of two substrates with the crosslinkable paste should be done in one
step. A ideal direct laminating machine configuration should contain a paste dot head
and a lamination unit behind the drying section. Due to the fact that the thermosetting
process starts 2-4 hours after the coating (depending upon the drying temperature
) it is also possible to laminate the coated substrate within this time on a separate
lamination unit.
Principal of Direct Lamination Process
This system is already commercialized for the lamination of different textile substrates. Our crosslinking paste system find usage in the automotive sector as well in

Smart textile
materials for thermal insulation for
the building sector
Storepet, an European research
project to cut down building energy consumption
StorePet is a project funded by the European Commission 7th
Framework Program. It started on 1st November, 2011 and it
will last three years. The project is developed by a Consortium set up by partners from different European Countries. It is
formed by four Industrial Associations, three SMEs and four
research centres.
renewable energies to total energy use and a 20% reduction
of greenhouse gas emissions with respect to 1990 figures. In
this context, the building sector must assume very ambitious
objectives on energy consumption cuts of around 165 Mtoe
(millions of tons of oil equivalent) and contribute with 50 Mtoe
from renewable energies by 2020. To underline the magnitude
of the task, these figures are equivalent to the total joint energy
consumption of Spain, Portugal, Greece and Ireland in 2004.
On May of 2010, the new Energy Performance of Buildings
(EPB) Directive was finally adopted as Directive 2010/31/EU.
It calls for improved national regulations upon new and renovated houses energy efficiency, with very ambitious standards
and mandatory goals. It also includes a framework for national
requirements, related with heating/cooling and ventilation systems. In July 2012, the new directive has been implemented,
though many elements including the regulation of building
systems will only be fully enforced by July 2013. By the end
of 2020, new buildings in the EU must consume ‘nearly zero’
energy. With a current stock of around 160 million buildings
in the EU, the latest EPB Directive also tack the retrofit of existing buildings, including historic ones towards an effective
The project aims to bring a new product to the building market
– StorePet – a new inexpensive thermally enhanced and “ready
to use” fiber insulation phase change material (PCM) -based
composite, that combines on a single product 3 major skills:
thermal insulation abilities to block heat transfer into or out of
the buildings, outstanding airborne sound control proficiency
and now also thermal storage capacities. The versatility of the
concept will make it adaptable for heating and cooling purposes, enabling this product to address different climate patterns
and geographical markets just by tailoring its relative composition, dimensions and installation layout.
Currently buildings account for 40% of the world’s energy and
almost half of the today’s Green House gas emissions. This
means that buildings contribute more greenhouse gases than
traffic, which is estimated at 31%, and industry, estimated at
28%. When we breakdown and analyze buildings’ energy consumption the most worrying aspect is that most of this energy
used for heating, cooling or ventilation is needlessly wasted
or resulting in poor insulation and all the recent projections
claims that this consumption will rise considerably on the next
years to come. Under this scope, the last Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recommendations has stated
that worldwide governments, businesses and individuals must
aggressively start to reduce energy use in new and existing
buildings, in order to reduce the planet’s energy-related carbon
footprint by 77% (against the predicted 2050 baseline), and
stabilize CO2 levels to reach the level called by IPCC. To reach
this objective it’s estimated that global building sector needs to
cut energy consumption in buildings 60% by 2050, in order to
meet the global climate change targets.
With such high levels of energy consumption clouded by severe climate change estimations, the European Community (EC) has triggered a significant number of regulatory and
legislative actions. In March 2007, the European Council set
clear goals for a reduction of 20% by 2020 in the total energy
consumption (below 2005 levels), with a 20% contribution of
action against climate change. As for the new buildings, universal trends now show a movement towards lightweight and
modular timber or steel constructions (with less site wastes
involved and lower embedded energy materials), with global
demand for prefabricated housing and elements growing at
3.4 % per year, for a market valued at €51 billion in 2004 for
complete buildings alone.
Lightweight constructions represent an economical alternative
to traditional buildings, one of whose main drawbacks is the
very high energy load needed to keep internal comfort conditions, as they are unable to curb rapid swings of temperature. When compared to heavier weight materials buildings,
it’s estimated that to maintain a thermally comfortable temperature range of 18-24°C, low weight materials use between 2
and 3 times the heating and cooling energy needed by a heavy
weight material construction.
Thermal mass is most effective in places and in seasons with
large daily temperature fluctuations above and below the balance point temperature -BPT- of the building (BPT is the outdoor temperature below which heating will be required in the
building because internal heat gains are less than heat loss
through envelope and ventilation). In such cases substantially
energy is saved by avoiding a significant portion of heat flux
being transferred through the envelop backward and forward.
Often, the benefits are greatest during summer and fall, when
fluctuations above and below the comfort temperature occur.
Nevertheless, the same concept can be theoretically be used
to moderate heat flux under either extreme cold conditions or
extreme warm conditions, where outer temperature ranges are
well above or below the comfort temperature.
When outdoor temperatures are at their high peak in warm
climates, the inside of the building remains cool because the
heat penetration through the mass is delayed. If the heat that is
stored during the day hours could be evacuated selectively to
the exterior at night, the effect of the thermal mass would be
very similar to a high performance insulator.
In cold climates requiring intensive heating, thermal mass can
be used to effectively collect and store solar gains and to store
internal excess heat during the day and selectively release it
back inwards. Buildings using electric heating/cooling can simultaneously use off-peak hours enjoying cheaper supply tariffs as daily storing phase. The result will be a substantial net
reduction in energy consumption and additional bill cuts due
to cheaper electricity.
Generally, highly insulated structures cannot efficiently substitute a lack of thermal mass. Thermal mass stores and re-radiates heat, while insulation stops heat flowing into or out of the
building. A high thermal mass material is not generally a good
thermal insulator and the best insulation material has almost
no thermal mass. Thus, in harsh hot climate conditions, the
only way to maintain a comfortable temperature inside a lightweight building on a summer day without installing active air
conditioning is to somehow increase its thermal mass. You can
do it in traditionally manner with heavy building materials, or
by introducing latent heat storage materials in its construction.
None of today’s building materials incorporating PCMs in a
stand-alone product are designed either to perform as heat flux
blockers through the building envelope (external walls and
roofs), or as a noise insulator. The StorePET project intends to
overcome this market gap and act differently from any other
PCM available product, using PCMs fiber incorporation technology to excel the extra advantage of the conventional fiber
insulation work, regarding the large temperature fluctuations
that take place in residential attics or at the exterior wall surfaces of lightweight building strutture.
The project concept is based upon the fact
that outdoor/indoor heat exchanges (which
plays a significant part of lightweight buildings cooling and heating loads) can be potentially controlled by a new fiber insulation
that possesses a thermally active heat storage
capacity. During the day, when temperature
rises, the peak loads can be largely absorbed
by a PCM-enhanced fiber insulation layer,
only to be slowly discharged back to the environment later (during the night time, when
outside temperature drops), without affecting the interior building energy balance, as
it is aided by the presence of a standard low
heat transfer fiber insulation layer.
This approach will provide a much slower
response of the building envelope to daily
temperature fluctuations, helping maintaining inside temperature in a comfortable
range and thus avoiding the need for extra
energy consumptions to accomplish it. Effective levels of indoor comfort will be also
guaranteed by the well known fiber materials excellence, when it comes to reduce
airborne noise transmission and its superior performance upon controlling the sound
resonance in construction cavities. From the
point of view of energy efficiency design, the
added value of the PCMs is its extra ability (on top of the thermal resistance) to reduce energy consumption in the building.
The above figure shows how StorePet solu-
tion would significantly reduce inside temperature fluctuation and therefore the
needed heating/cooling load to keep temperature constant, in a scenario of high
fluctuation of outside temperature. The same conceptual solution when applied
to extreme hot or cold temperatures would need different products (PCMs’ fusion
points, relative concentration and distribution along the matt cross section would
be different to avoid external heat than to recover internal heat), and installation
layouts (matt allocation, ventilation systems) would differ as well. Maybe the most
notable difference is the convenience of an additional ventilation system to take
full advantage of the thermal inertia provided by the PCMs.
The main goal of the STOREPET project is to develop a new nonwoven technical
insulation product that integrates phase change materials for heat storage capacity
skills. Maintaining the superior levels of thermal and noise insulation commonly
recognized for fiber materials, STOREPET will be especially design for lightweight
and low thermal mass building envelope structures, as well as for any other residential/commercial/governmental new or refurbishing building projects, with extra in-
excellent performances unchanged over time. Thanks to its
features, the polyester can be effectively used for the production of panels for thermal and acoustic insulation. The main
fields of application are the following: building (dividing wall,
perimeter wall, ceilings); civil engineering (acoustic barriers
for railways and highways); industrial engineering and special
applications (semi-anechoic chambers).The insulation panels
used for the StorePET Project are of the kind “Ecozero” provided by Freudenberg Politex. Politex is a multinational with
its headquarters in Italy at Novedrate (Como); the Group’s core
business is the production of polyester nonwovens, made using both staple and spunbond technology. Ecozero is a polyester thermal insulating and sound absorbing product, developed
for construction. Appreciated for its mechanical and insulation
characteristics, such type of panels is also environmentally
friendly: made almost entirely using polyester recycled from
differentiated urban waste, it has a low grey energy content.
Polyester production starts with the recycling of post-consumer
PET bottles, which are selected, washed and reduced to flakes;
the flakes are then used in the production of fibers which are
then processed to obtain Ecozero panel. Phase change material (PCM): The extensive thermal characterization preformed
in order to help choosing the PCMs that best complies the
technical properties needed for StorePET’s have demonstrated that saturated alkanes of type CnH2n+2, from n-hexadecane to n-eicosane, clearly have melting/crystallization transitions temperatures inside the range previously considered
optimum for product application (16-36°C) and superior latent
heat storage values above 200J/g, with minor sub cooling effects during the crystallization stage. For maximum efficiency,
the selection of the right paraffin or paraffinic binary mixture
compositions must be defined according the typical outdoor
temperature fluctuation boundaries of each location where
the novel thermal enhanced insulation product will be used.
sulation and heat storage capacities needs.
Although expected to be more effective in
places and seasons with large daily temperature fluctuations, where it’s possible to
take full advantage of its performance abilities, this new product can also be used as
standard insulation on any type of climates
and a secure choice to counteract global
warning rising temperatures.
The two components are nonwoven fiber
and PCM:
Nonwoven polyester fiber: Polyester fiber (PET) has been chosen. It’s the fiber of
greater importance in the world of chemical fibers and it’s characterized by an average annual growth rates of over 5%. One
of the reasons for the success of polyester
fiber comes from the wide availability and
relatively low cost of raw materials and the
fiber is obtained from the polyester through
the process of spinning. Polyester is widely used also considering its good features:
high dynamometric properties; usury resistance; thermal stability; ease of maintenance
due to thermal stability and ease of drying;
high resistance to weathering and light; resistance to chemicals; thermal resistance at
high temperatures (up to 150 °C for several
days) and low temperatures (down to - 40
°C); high vapor permeability; antimicrobial;
Alternatively to paraffin, it was studied the possibility to tailor non paraffinic organic binary mixtures inside the working
temperature ranges selected. Although showing poorer latent
heat storage capacities, the best candidates so far are the ones
made from fatty acid ethyl esters or fatty acid methyl esters. If
one should consider a core-sheath PCM-fiber integration, the
thermal stability of non encapsulated paraffinic materials can
be enhanced by creating form-stable polymer stabilized PCMs
with the help of instumecent flame retardants, like ammonium
polyphosphates and especially expanded graphite. If the thermally active content shall be mixed within the polyester insulation blankets by means of spraying techniques using microencapsulated PCMs, the easier way to improve flame retardancy
shall be to integrate halogen free flame retardant additives during the deposition process, which will provide protection for
the whole fiber insulation product.

The new family of high-performance yarn by
Cittadini S.p.a.
"SAFE TECH" - this is the name of the
new line of high-performance technical
yarns specifically designed by Cittadini
spa to meet the new and always more
sophisticated needs in the field of advanced technical textiles and sewing of
protective clothing equipment (PPE).
The company is firmly convinced that
technical textiles represent an opportunity to improve the life and safety conditions of people and, for this reason, Cittadini Spa wanted to offer to the market
a complete range of solutions in order to
win all the performance challenges set
by the most extreme conditions of use
of all the technical yarns.
"SAFE TECH" family is consists in:
TENAXFIL FIRE STOP is a para-aramidic
fiber sewing thread, which responds to
the need of completing the protection of
people who wear flame resistant fabrics,
ensuring protection from fire and heat.
TENAXFIL FIRE STOP has a very high
thermal resistance (in fact it reaches up
to 425 ° C and then it chars without melting and avoiding to drip on clothes or
stick to the body), while ensuring at the
same time exceptional tensile strength
to the break and tear. So, thanks to its
intrinsic characteristics, FIRE STOP is an
auto-extinguishing sewing thread able to
offer a good abrasion and cut resistance
at the same time. It is available in various counts, both in continuous and spun
TENAXFIL FIRE STOP+ is a meta-aramidic fiber sewing thread; thanks to its particular construction and to the material
used, it allows to best fulfill the needs
of fire resistance and yarn sewability .It
ensures a good thermal protection (up
to about 370 ° C, then it carbonizes without melting) and, thanks to its elasticity, better sewing performances, while
maintaining a good mechanical strength.
FIRE STOP+ also permits the color customization, depending on the substrate
to be used.
TENAXFIL ANTISTATIC is the high tenacity antistatic sewing thread developed by
Cittadini spa in order to meet the needs
of the safety clothes making-up industry,
in which it is essential to dissipate the
electrostatic charge and avoid the crea-
tion of sparks. TENAXFIL ANTISTATIC has a linear resistivity that suits the production
of clothes that must comply with DIN EN ISO 1149, allowing to create a conductor
link also in the seams, which is rather impossible with a normal sewing thread.
TENAXBOND PES represents a new generation of polyester bonded yarn, specifically
designed to offer a better resistance to UV and abrasion than regular polyester HT
yarns. The special and exclusive treatment made by Cittadini also allow to sew on the
most resistant materials; thanks to the “STS SILK” finishing, a special softness and
a high silky smoothness are conferred to the yarn, improving the performance of
sewability, in particular on new generation of fast machines and 2 needles machines.
TENAXFIL EXTREME is the latest in the family of SAFE TECH yarns made by Cittadini
spa, but it is not the least important. It is produced with Dyneema® fiber and it provides an incredible specific tenacity which allows to reach tensile strengths which are
impossible to match with other synthetic yarns. Another important aspect of TENAXFIL EXTREME is the resistance to UV, weathering, acids in general and mildew. In
high humidity ambient or sea operation situation it is the perfect solution to maintain
optimal performance expectations in terms of retention of tensile strength and fiber
The introduction of the new "SAFE TECH" line joins and completes the investment
projects made by Cittadini spa in the field of dyeing and finishing for yarns and
fabrics. In fact, technologically advanced systems allow the Company to offer also
ultra-performance nets, among which the ones produced in Dyneema® fiber are very
important; they provide a very high breaking load and cut resistance, also offering, at
the same time, the possibility to make lightweight and low volume articles. Through
these articles, Cittadini spa has achieved a specialization and completeness in the
range of nets and technical yarns getting to become incomparable in the European
market and can satisfy the needs of the most advanced applications of industrial, military, protection, clothing, furnishing and contract markets.
New opportunities for Italian clothing exporters
China dealt quickly with the global economic crisis of 2008 by using monetary, fiscal and
bank-lending measures, affecting positively GDP that grew from 9.2% in 2009, to 10.3%
in 2010, 9.2% in 2011 and 7.8% in 2012. China’s GDP grow rate in 2013 is expected to be
included between 8.3% and 8.8%.Such a growth - that could continue in the next years - is
perceived as non-sustainable by the Chinese leadership that shows its concerns in the 12th
Five-Year Plan published in 2011 (through the Five-Year Plans, the Chinese Government
gradually plans objectives and priorities of China’s economic and social development).
Also for this reason, the plan aims to increase consumption
from 35% of GDP in 2010 to 50% by 2015.
This rebalancing of China’s economy should create opportunities for foreign companies that provide consumption goods
and services.
China’s rapid economic growth - especially in urban areas - led
to a booming of consumption and it is expected that China will
account for a consumption of about 20% of global luxury goods
by 2015 and that the middle-class will represent approximately
45% of the population by 2020 (about 700 million people).
Despite these data, China still remains a developing country
with significant economic gaps between urban and rural areas.
In 2011, the urban population exceeded the rural one for the
first time with 690.79 million people versus 656.56 million.
In 2011, the per-capita income of urban residents was US$
3.454 while the one of the rural residents was US$ 1.105.
With a population of about 1,3 billion people and a rapid economic growth, China represents the largest consumer market
for clothing and home textiles. The per-capita fiber consumption increased from 4.1 kg in 2000 to 20.3 kg in 2008, indeed.
According to a survey conducted by Euromonitor, the Chinese
textile-clothing market will reach US$ 473 billion in 2014, an
increase of 75,2% in comparison with 2009 (US$ 270 billion).
Clothing sales grew by 137.8% between 2003 and 2009 thanks
to strong increases in the purchasing power of salaries.
Chinese brands dominate the mass market in particular in rural
areas and small cities. They generally have more widespread
sales networks than foreign competitors.
The most important clothing companies - in order of sales revenue in 2011 - are:
Youngor Co., Ltd (Ningbo - Zhejiang)
Hongdou Group Co., Ltd (Wuxi – Jiangsu)
Heilan Group (Wuxi - Jiangsu)
ShanShan Enterprise (Shanghai)
Boseding Co. Ltd (Suzhou – Jiangsu)
Jiangsu Sunshine Group ( Jiangyang – Jiangsu)
Shandong Ruyi Science & Technology Group ( Jining – Shandong)
Anta (China) Co. Ltd ( Jinjiang – Fujian)
Qingdao Jifa Group (Qingdao – Shandong)
Shandong Singer Group Co. Ltd (Weifang – Shandong)
The luxury apparel market is dominated by foreign companies
– European above all - even if some domestic brands such as
Ne.Tiger and Trands (Dayang Group) are expanding their activities in this segment – also abroad.
Brands such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Dunhill, Hugo Boss and
Armani have already established a strong presence in the market. Nevertheless some domestic brands such as Youngor, Romon e Firs are establishing theirselves in the same segment.
As far as shirt production and sales are concerned, Chinese
brands are very strong. Most men’s shirts sold all over the world
are made in China. Youngor, Firs, Conch and Rouse are the top
four brands.
Even if brands such as Dior, Chanel, Prada and Gucci dominate the luxury market segment – increases of both casual and
classic clothing sales for Chinese brands are expected. Among
the most important Chinese brands: White Collar, Kaiser, lily,
Giralear, JNBY, Peacebird, Sierli, Gloria. Imports are limited but
there’s room for growth.
Foreign brands hold the majority of the market and dominate
the premium market segment with brands such as Mickey’s, Les
Enphants, BobDog, Bossini Kids, Esprit Kids. These brands provide their products mainly in mid-end and high-end specialty
shops and department stores.
There are few well-known domestic brands and the most important ones are: Yaduo, Shuihaier, Balabala.
This segment represents the most promising market; on one
hand because it is not yet overstocked and completely developed; on the other hand because it is expected to grow annually by 8% thanks to the higher income of Chinese families.
Sales of casual wear such as jeans, jackets and t-shirts are on
the rise. In terms of volume, the market is dominated by domestic brands such as Metersbonwe and Jeanswet.
Since the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, sport has become a
part of the Chinese lifestyle with a consequent booming of
sales in clothing and footwear for outdoor activities. The two
dominant brands are: Nike and Adidas, followed by Reebok,
Puma, Mizuno and Umbro. Unlike what is commonly thought,
those products are mostly imported (India, Thailand, Turkey
and Vietnam) rather than locally produced.
Domestic brands such as Li-Ning, Peak, 361° and Anta are
gaining a larger share of the domestic market than last years.
The luxury market entered is well established. Mass market has
low price. The market for men’s underwear is still at its preliminary stages of development and offers good opportunities of
Information and market
Regulations, trends and products in TexClubTec’s publications
Gaining and spreading information that could be useful for
associates and spreading technological and scientific knowledge are fundamental for a sector in continuous development
as technical textile are. For that, this has always been one of
the main goal in TexCLubTec’s mission. Knowing the world,
witnessing its evolution and evaluating its potentialities are fundamental actions to take to foster development, for an export
oriented company in particular.
Facing the market without the correct information could lead to
disappointing results with potential severe consequences. Contrary, an appropriate approach, with a solid knowledge, could
be a successful strategy with remarkable commercial results.
Today, the Internet and the media offer so much information
that it becomes difficult to separate what’s certain and what’s
not verifiable. This is due to the speed and depth of the digital
world that allows people to acquire a huge number of information. Unfortunately, news that can be found are often disjointed
and incomplete and, for that, it becomes hard to have a global
vision of what we’re looking for.
That’s why TexClubTec gives its best constantly in collecting
useful information and updated data about topics of general
interest, gathering them in specific studies and market analysis. Among the most recent studies, there are the analysis of
the technical textile market in India and of the flame retardant
textile market for upholstery in China as well as technological
studies such as “Production wastes as profits through recycling
for the textile industry”.
Moreover, TexClubTec started a new publishing product, Mondo Tessile, that focuses on the Textile and Clothing sector in
general. It’s a new product of the association that aims to become a useful tool to gain information and get to know international market dynamisms, not only of the technical textiles, but
also of the textile in general. Mondo Tessile is an open window
on the textile sectorn in which news hard to find are gathered,
whose goal is to help companies to realize corporate commercial plans and technical and scientific updating.

The GB18401 standard (National Safety Technical Code for Textile
Products) is compulsorily implemented to any kind of textile object
imported, sold or produced on the Chinese market. It contains safety
requirements, test methods, supervision procedures and implementation rules for the domestic area control. Starting from the 1st of August
2012, the 2010 review became law, with some changes compared with
the 2003 one.
On January 14th 2011, the 2010 review
of the GB18401 standard “National Safety Technical Code for Textile Products”
was approved. Its final enactment, estimated for the 1st August 2011, was
postponed by one year. So, up to the 1st
August 2012, the 2003 review had been
still effective. The main changes that had
been adopted are:
The age average of the “Infants” category is raised from 0-24 months to 0-36
PH range for products with skin contact
(Cat. B) raises from 4.0-7.5 to 4.0-8.5;
Some changes had been included in the
requirements’ chart for color solidity
standards: no specific requirement for
unrefined or faded textiles and for traditionally hand painted textiles (Tie-dye,
batik etc.). Curtain fabrics are exempted
from standards of color solidity to sweat;
4-aminoazobenzene had been added
to the forbidden amines, in compliance
with the effective European standards;
Exception: standards are not to be
adopted for textile pieces of art, disposable hygienic products, luggage, umbrellas, carpets etc.
The GB18401 standard must be adopted for all imported, sold and produced
textile objects on the Chinese market. It
indicates safety requirements, test methods, supervision procedures and regulations for the control implementation in
the domestic area, that the PRC General
Administration of Quality Supervision,
Inspection and Quarantine must put in
action to protect consumer health and
Standards include colour solidity and
some eco-friendly requirements, partially according to the Oeko-Tex 100®
(Certification system that checks presence and quantity of harmful substances in textile products). Unlike the latter,
whose adoption is voluntary, GB18401
requirements are compulsory and involve more than the mere supplier-buyer relationship. Moreover, some of the
related test methods are available only
in Chinese and some aren’t totally equivalent to ISO standards.
For this reason, the National Safety Technical Code for Textile Products is considered a market obstacle, but, in most
cases, it can be overcome with a better
knowledge of Chinese market regulations.
cerned, referential product standards
must be specified on the label. FZ Standards concern textile products and include test methods, product standards
(with tests and requirements for different kind of objects from the textile and
clothing chain – yarns, fabrics, finished
items) and specific standards for mechanical textiles.
Since many product standards are available only in Chinese, Centrocot offers,
on request, translation services and advice about requirements China asks for.
The need to be in compliance with them
mustn’t be underestimated to avoid
problems and penalties once goods had
been sent.
For that, Centrocot defined specific test
procedures to be offered to its customerS to check goods’ compliance using
Chinese test methods and an expert advice on the effective Chinese legislation.
In addition to GB18401, there are other
rules that an entrepreneur should know.
Goods’ labeling (composition and maintenance in particular) is being underestimated by exporters most of the time. For
example, many of them don’t know that
a wrong translation of a fiber name in
Chinese could lead to heavy fines, even
if it’s a matter of formal mistakes.

Projects by NEXT
Ideas and projects for sustainable innovation in Fashion
NEXT Technology Tecnotessile has led a constant activity of
Research in Textile&Clothing sector for over 20 years. This is
concretized by offering directly to the companies technology
transfer services as well as technical support for developing
new products and processes, but also working with the most
reliable and specialized research centers of the country and
abroad for the realization of projects with a high content of
experimental research.
In recent years, the interest and research activity of Tecnotessile
has mostly focused on issues related to environmental sustainability, with the aim of providing companies with innovative
solutions for efficiently energy consumption, by lowering the
levels of use and release of substances harmful to humans and
the environment, and a more widespread attention to the testing of raw materials from recycling.
A measurable commitment to innovative products and processes that the industry can adopt thanks to the synergies established with the world of Services Centres, Research organizations and the University, and to its close relations with the
Tuscany entrepreneurial network, whose needs and potential
are the reference of all the proposals of R&D.
EASYWASH: industrial washing systems with low consumption
of energy and primary resources.
"EasyWash" presented on the Italian Call "Industria 2015", aims
to develop a concept of textile for workwear original and revolutionary, where washing and storage can ensure a reduced
consumption of energy and natural resources. The new generation of products, achieved thanks to a photocatalytic inorganic
compound, used as additive in the process of fixing, can be
classified as "self-cleaning textile", therefore capable of ensuring an indirect environmental effect for the reduced need of
washes, the lowering of energy consumption and a significant
reduction of waste.
BISCOL: development of natural dyes for the dyeing industry.
The goal of the project Eco-Innovation "Biscol" is to propose a
new dyeing process, which uses dyes produced by biocatalytic
methods. The enzyme in these processes promotes the synthesis of organic chromophores by allowing production and sustainable consumption as well as saving energy and water. The
LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) will carry out an assessment of the
sustainability of new dyeing process from design to prototype,
which is expected by the end of 2013. The project is coordinated by the Department of Chemistry, University of Siena.
SUPERTEX: flame retardant fabrics made with PET from the
food industry
The Eco-Innovation "Supertex" aims to demonstrate that a secondary raw material such as a film of recycled PET (RPET), can
be used in the textile industry for the production of eco-friendly technical products, with high added value. The polyester
used comes from food packaging, which differently from bottles polyester is of low quality because it contains impurities of
polyolefins. Such recycled material can, however, be exploited
for the production of yarns that have flame retardant properties
usable both by the automotive and domestic textile.
PURIFAST: innovative systems for the treatment and reuse of
wastewater for the textile industry.
The project Life + "PURIFAST" has developed a system of novel
treatment for the purification of waste water coming from the
textile industry and by civil usage, through the use of techniques of ultrafiltration and ozone that can reduce the environmental impact due to a lower use of fossil material in CO2
emissions and water acidification processes. The results of the
project have shown that it is possible to efficiently remove solids and dissolved organic matter, with a wastewater reuse equal
to 35% in mixture with spring water.
Share, Innovate, Invest in the
future. Ideas for sustainable
"Making Network" is not only an imperative for companies,
required to join skills, technical equipment and strategies to
achieve objectives of common interest. "Making Network" has
also become a target for all the Research institutions and organizations providing SMEs with incentives, support and services,
to maximize the intervention and the capability to perform effective technology transfer actions.
Fot that reason the Region of Tuscany decided in 2010 to reserve a specific line of funding for the establishment of 12 Poles
of Innovation able to maximize the actions of the existing service providers of the area, and enhance their support activities
and technology transfer to the business world.
The involved entities are Service and Research Centres, University and Research areas of the CNR, and they all have been
called to work synergistically in order to propose a set of actions intended to develop research and innovation, enable paths
technology transfer and diffusion of knowledge in the research
sector, and to stimulate companies to use the public funds.
For the textile, clothing, leather, tanning, footwear and jewellery, the Polo that was formed is OTIR2020, Officina Toscana per l’innovazione e la Ricerca di Settore, which sees NEXT
Technology Tecnotessile leader of a pool of specialized centres
in different sectors.
Born in July 2011, OTIR2020 has among
its objectives to contribute actively to
the process of reorganization of Tuscany production system, and prepare it for
new development policies that allow the
upgrading of SMEs innovation level and
a further qualification of their commercial offer for both the domestic and foreign market, enabling a faster release of
the Tuscan system from the crisis of the
An ambitious goal that uses as privileged
instruments the technical and technological equipment offered by the involved
centres, the existing and already widespread availability of the more advanced
companies to experience innovation
paths especially in the areas of production, organizational processes and product research, and, above all, the financing
lines offered by the Region to support
ideas and innovation projects with his
Catalogue of "Qualified Services".
Also the research system is required to
qualify itself, and for the first time has
to share opportunities and complexity
of the industry scenario, and therefore
contribute to the preparation of a joint
strategic offer.
OTIR2020 will do in a few months its

To interpret the future of the local system, and to combine the driver of technological innovation with new strategic
objectives, the "Polo della Moda" intends
to focus its future work on companies'
commitment for environmental, economic and social sustainability, which

Innovative and versatile fibres and filaments
Trevira is intensifying its activities in the
field of technical textiles. This year the
fibre and filament producer will be appearing again in June at the Technical
Fair in Frankfurt, and for the first time,
in March at Techtextil North America
in Anaheim (California/USA), and at
Textile Solutions in April. The Trevira
programme covers fibres (including bicomponent fibres) in polyester and PLA
(Ingeo™), flame retardant and other special fibres and yarns in polyester, standard and spun-dyed filaments, as well as
microfilament and hybrid yarns.
Trevira filaments cover a broad range of
applications for technical textiles. Flame
retardant yarns for the construction of
exhibition stands and print base materials (Trevira CS) are now standard. In
addition, there are special yarns for medicine and hygiene textiles, as well as textured PBT filaments as a basis for transdermal patches and bandages.
Hybrid yarns constitute an important
specialty: low-melt component (NSK)
is combined with a Trevira standard or
flame retardant filament.
Using thermal treatment, textile fabrics
made from these hybrid yarns can be
controlled and shaped almost at will,
and finally fixed in this state. The single-material composition of these products (100% Polyester) means they can be
recycled. They can be finished in a variety of ways, all energy-saving, and they
are dyeable and printable. This makes
them an interesting alternative, in both
ecological and economic terms, since a
stiffening coating of acrylate, for example, becomes superfluous. When used in
combination with flame retardant Trevira
filaments the materials satisfy important
international fire standards.
Mixing Trevira NSK filaments with glass
and/or carbon filament makes it possible
to produce high-performance thermoplastic composites or prepregs, e.g. for
vehicle construction.
Staple fibre range covers short-cut fibres for airlaid and wetlaid applications
(hygiene products, paper industry) and
flame retardant fibres for nonwoven
The range in bico fibres comprises the
various raw material combinations, such

used primarily in the manufacture of thermally bonded materials (non-wovens), for
instance in the automotive sector, for insulation and filtration materials, and also for
hygiene products.
Trevira is focusing more and more on ecological solutions. The sustainability concept in bico fibres is mainly based on optimising existing products in the PES fibre
programme, such as a PET/PE fibre with low melting point. This saves energy during
processing and/or allows a higher operational throughput. The range of fibres in
biopolymers (PLA) for a variety of technical applications will be extended to include a PLA/PLA bico fibre.
Recycling is also an important issue. At
the headquarters in Bobingen, Trevira
is working to develop a programme for
recycling Trevira products.

Expo 2015 topics at NanoItalTex 2013: technical textiles contribution
From the 1st May to the 31st October 2015, Milan is going to host Expo 2015, a remarkable event whose benefits at an industrial and commercial level will affect the
whole countries, and Lombardy in particular. Many industrial branches are taking
advantages from this event, such as the building sector and transports, and a requalification plan for new infrastructures and buildings set up for the exhibition is being
drown up. To underline the important role that Expo plays for the host country, it’s
enough to say that about 20 million visitors from more than one hundred countries
are expected.
This exhibition is an unmissable opportunity to make new high-profile contacts and
partnerships for Italian producers, since, after years of bad economic situation and
market tumultuousness. Italian companies need new horizons, effective solutions and
better future perspectives than these days.
For this reason, the international conference dedicated to technological innovation
in the textile sector, NanoItalTex, at its 9th edition in 2013, will focus on Expo goals
and topics, discussing whether the exhibition could represent a good opportunity
EXPO 2015
Expo 2015 will be an extraordinary global event that will put
in the spotlight traditions, creativity and innovations about nutrition and its connected fields. It will concern topics - that had
been already discussed in the last editions - in the light of the
new global scenarios. Since the main topic of the entire exhibition will be Nutrition – and consequently health – here are the
main goals on which the attention should be focused:
Nutrition quality and safety must be strengthen, making sure
that the whole population has access to healthy food and drinkable water;
Through a healthy nutrition for all human beings, we must fight
starvation, thirst, infant mortality and malnutrition - that affect
850 million people today – by overcoming famines and pandemics;
New social diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases,
cancer, epidemics must be prevented by endorsing effective
procedures that could be a real solution;
We need to boost innovation throughout the whole food supply
chain, thanks to research and new technologies, improving nutritive values, storage and supply of food;
People should be educated on a correct nutrition to foster new
lifestyles - especially for kids, teenagers, disabled people and
senior citizens;
The knowledge of food traditions should be recognized as a
cultural and ethnic identity.
Quality and easy access to agricultural and food products are
a real social need and have an important economic value. Local communities plays a fundamental role since food quality
is strengthen whether strong agricultural and breeding traditions exist. Those thousand-year-old traditions are the basis of
today scientific innovations and technologies. Public bodies,
private companies, humanitarian association, NGOs, consumer
and producer representatives promote the development of the
whole economic and social system all over the world.
At Expo 2015, the above mentioned objectives will be discussed
also through many exhibitions about scientific and technological evolutions such as:
for the technical textile sector and what
could be its contribution to answer planet needs.
So, the organizer, TexClubTec, chose
Centro Tessile Cotoniero ed Abbigliamento S.p.a from Busto Arsizio (Varese)
as a collaborator, thanks to its interest
in the topics Expo refers to. NanoItalTex
2013 wants to give the chance to evaluate the potential benefits of Expo and,
so, help the Italian technical textile sector in preparing itself for an opportunity
that could be given only once.
Safeguard of biodiversity, respecting environment as an agricultural ecosystem, protecting food health and quality, educating
people on a better nutrition for their health and wellness;
Identification of better monitoring and innovating tools such
as ecofriendly biotechnologies not harmful for health, in order
to guarantee availability of drinkable and irrigation water and
healthy food;
Guarantee of new food sources for poor agricultural areas or
where agriculture is threatened by desertification, deforestation, drought, famine, species impoverishment of rivers and
In this scenario, technical textile issues could be summarized in
four main thematic area:
Health improvement has to start from the infant mortality cut
down, especially in developing countries, increasing the use of
antibacterial and anti-mosquito textiles against Malaria. As far
as developed countries are concerned, the challenge consists in
coping with the lengthening of the avarage age and the changing medical needs and the improvement of life quality for senior citizens. This way, Textile Medical Implants in human body
are spreading considerably as well as research and studies on
Smart Textiles with remote monitoring sensors for vital signs
for elderly or disabled people and infants.
In the medical field, protection plays a fundamental role - especially for the pharmaceutical sector and hospitals - in avoiding
drugs to be contaminated (e.g. Textiles for Cleanrooms) and in
protecting workers to be infected by virus or infections brought
by inpatients (Protective Clothing).
Moreover, in the last decade, an increased interest for what
concerns people wellness has been registered. For this reason,
the entire sports sector (both professional and amateur) has
become a leading field, in which textiles with different characteristics (thermoregulating, breathable, antibacterial, or textiles
able to reduce weariness) could represent a good starting point
to open new horizons.
It’s important to offer a sustainable and non-polluted environment. In this perspective, Agrotextiles, gas filtration textiles for
the industrial sector are essential tools. Preventing natural hazards due to climate changes could help agricultural development.
This way, Geotextiles have a strategic value and Protective
Clothing and Textile Architecture (e.g. camp tents, temporary
housing textile structures) both before and after natural disasters take place could be of some help.
Food guarantee and health involve the entire food supply chain
and the connected industrial sectors. Concerning the food industry, Protective Clothing for workers and textiles for packaging and conveyor belts – that must be in compliance with
specific international standards – play a fundamental role.
Furthermore, sea impoverishment leads to a ship route change
towards farther and colder seas where protective clothing for
cold and wet climates should be implemented to preserve people safety and health. Meanwhile, innovative types of nets are
developed for aqualculture (e.g. anti-mold nets, optical fibres
nets etc.).
Water sources safeguard
Limited freshwater pollution levels can be handled by controlling industrial and public plumbing with wet filtration textiles. In case of coast pollution disasters it could be helpful to
use textiles with a high oil and chemical absorbing capacity.
Fighting thirst entails also being able to store temporarily drinkable water (with flexible textile storage containers) that could
be carried elsewhere, for example by sea or for long distances.
Projects for transportable textile tanks, easy to drag for ships, are being developed to
bring freshwater – obtained from icebergs – to southern countries.
Sustainable agriculture must be based also on reduced gas emissions in the atmosphere thanks to renewable energy sources and consumption cuts. In this perspective,
insulation textiles for the building sector could be a solution for the reduction of air
conditioning energy consumption as well as support textiles for composites reinforcement for the windmill blades and technical textiles for solar panels.
In a globalized world, in which connections are essential, transports play a fundamental role. The more intense commercial partnerships become the more time people
spend on public/private transportation. Upholstery textiles can contribute in improving travelling comforts. Unfortunately, this phenomenon leads also to a significant increase of polluted emissions in the environment. Textiles for composite reinforcement
and smart textiles could offer the chance to produce lighter, safer vehicles with low
fuel consumption and to approach mobility and transport planning from a different
point of view.
The 2013 edition, arranged by TexClubTec and Centrocot, is going to offer
many speeches of lecturers from Italy
and abroad and will be divided into different sessions, according to the topic
that’s going to be discussed.
Thanks to the prestige it has acquired
over the years – witnessed also by 50 foreign speakers and more than one thousand visitors from all production sectors
and application areas, NanoItalTex 2013
could be the chance to make the point
on trends of the innovation field (focusing on nutrition, water safeguard, transports etc.) as far as Textiles and Clothing
are concerned.
Moreover, in order to boosts contacts
among European companies of the Textile & Clothing sector, TexClubTec and
Centrocot are planning some additional
events such as some business meetings
between the Italian and foreign companies that are going to attend the conference as lecturers.

Sustainability tools for
innovations, products and
Financial issues and access to credit remain some of the main
problems that the business world must resolve to ensure a
future for their companies. The crisis that hit world economy
since spring 2007 has fallen like a hurricane on Italian companies, which, from the third quarter of 2008, recorded a sharp
drop in sales and a decrease in profitability, with obvious difficulties to meet also the payment of interest and repayment of
loans. All this has then translated into a progressive deterioration in the rating resulting in increased liquidity stress.
These issues have not involved only the business world, but
also affected the banks, which have undergone a progressive
reduction in profitability along with an increase in non-performing loans and capital absorption. Penalizing elements, deriving almost directly from the crisis because, as mentioned,
the deterioration of the creditworthiness of the companies entrusted and the growth of substandard and doubtful loans are
directly related to the sharp decline in revenues and profitability of customers. The tension on the liquidity is also related
to the performance of the spread, which also determines the
ability to raise money on international markets and therefore
the raw material of the banking system in order to continue to
finance the productive fabric. A spiral on which there is also the
variable rates since the deterioration of the rating and the per-
formance of spreads have immediate effects on interest rates,
although now those officials were so restrained.
For the companies finding the necessary financial means to
support product innovation process program becomes a nightmare. An obstacle course where it becomes essential also the
way in which the request in accessing credit is “dressed”, one of
the strengths of Minding, a company established in conjunction
with the emergence of the crisis in order to give help to such
companies, that would be then affected by the effects of one
of the heaviest recessions since World War II. A downturn, the
results of which are under the astonished eyes of all the industrialists for the obvious errors of our rulers.
Minding helps the entrepreneur to set the scene for the market
and competition, to define and implement the strategy to be
started as well as to improve relations with the banks to start a
partnership considered necessary by all the actors on the scene
to overcome the classical customer-supplier relationship.
Minding’s Tools
The services offered by Minding allow
such companies to face the difficult
economic situation from two modules,
not necessarily consequential even if
we strongly recommend to start from
module 1 because: first module aims to
improve relations with the various stakeholders, the first among all banks. A goal
that Minding pursues by creating a company profile (identity card) with analysis
of the management for the last 3/5 years,
developing a business plan in three / five
years and analysis of the levers available
to the company to overcome current issues. A report enriched with the analysis of strengths and weaknesses, as well
as opportunities and threats. Then there
will be the formulation of recommendations to be implemented to overcome the
difficulties and giving full scope to opportunities.
The company profile
The Company profile therefore represents the identity card of
the company, a means by which the entrepreneur communicates with its references to the characteristics of its company
also proving to others absolute knowledge of the key variables
and how to relate them to leave winning a challenge. A challenge that sees more and more current the need to improve
the relationship that companies have establishedover the years
with the banks. Development that should lead to the overcoming of the customer-supplier relationship to move towards a
true partnership.
And the company profile supports this transformation because
it allows companies to present their reality in the banking
system using a language known to them to express a correct
image of the company accompanied by appropriate documentation of the projects. All with the ultimate aim of improving
access to credit through greater transparency and demonstrated ability to manage the key variables of governance.
It’s necessary not to dwell only on the resolution of daily prob-

Soliani Emc S.r.l.
SOLIANI works on the shielding application fields,
manufacturing a wide range of items
using the metal yarn
as knitted mesh gaskets or metal fabric
for shielded windows.
It offers also an electroless process able
to cover with pure nickel the
surface of fabric non woven and 3D such
as: PET, Kevlar, Nomex, carbon .
Nickel have many advantages because
offer a stable surface resistivity to
ensure a good shielding solution. The
quantity of nickel around each
single filameme is also an advantage for
the flexibility of the fabric.
We offer silicon and fluoro silicon electrically conductive
to use as moulded and extrusions solutions.
Soliani opera nel settori della produzione
di articoli schermanti, con una vasta gamma di prodotti che prevedono l’impiego di, ad esempio, filati metallici per le
guarnizioni in tessuto a maglia metallica
o tessuti metallici per vetri schermati.
Offre inoltre un processo di trattamento
con Nickel puro per tessuti, non tessuti
e tessuti 3D come il PET, Kevlar, Nomex,
carbonio. Il nickel porta molti vantaggi
dal momento che offre una stabile resistività superficiale per assicura una buona
schermatura. La quantità di Nickel intorno
al singolo filamento è un altro vantaggio
per la flessibilità del tessuto. Offre anche
siliconi e fluorosiliconi elettricamente
conduttivi per soluzioni di estrusione e
per modellare
