Smart Homes and the Window
Treatment Industry

Advances in UV Technology for Use in
the Field of Textile Dyeing, Finishing,
Coating and Composite Materials

Andre Comitre, COO, Artisan Window Fashions
Smart Homes are everywhere and all industries
related to the home and commercial building
are getting involved with these technologies.
Motorized shades are now more important
then ever and with that the ability to control
them using APPs Voice and other smart home
platforms is also growing.
Understanding the relationship between Home
Automation and Motorized Shades from a
technical and commercial perspective will be
crucial for window treatment companies to
succeed in this quick changing environment.

2-3 pm	
International Business, Supply Chain
Management and Global Sourcing

Dr. Reinhold Schneider, Senior Scientist, DITF
Traditional dyeing and textile finishing are
marked by impregnation of textiles with diluted
dyestuffs or finishing chemicals and subsequent
thermal fixation. This processing requires a lot
of energy. The use of UV-curable dyeing liquors
and finishing chemicals would significantly
contribute to energy saving and new textile
products. UV-curable inks for inkjet-printing
and UV-curable finishing chemicals were
developed for this purpose. It will be shown that
these UV-curable inks and finishing chemicals
provide excellent functionality, very soft hand
and excellent fastness properties on different
textile materials. In addition, UV-curing was
successfully applied in the curing of composite
materials, which reduces energy consumption
significantly and enables new products.

Shade Sail Design-How to Get It Right

Shade Sails appear to be simple structures;
however, the technology of shade sails is often
