Multiplexed Laser Surface Enhancement (MLSE®) is a unique technology that has the ability to treat both natural and synthetic textiles for a wide variety of functionalities; These include dyeability and printing enhancements, hydrophilicity, hydrophobicity, fire retardancy and anti-microbial properties.
MLSE® is dry process, carried out at atmospheric pressure using safe, inert gases (Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon & Carbon Dioxide) and proprietary precursors.
Expert independent analysis of the unique MLSE® process suggests that the following reductions will be achieved:
• Use of hazardous resource (irritant/corrosive and bio-accumulative) eliminated completely.
• Energy consumption reduced by 99.6%
• Greenhouse gas reduction over baseline of 90.9%
• Resource (chemical) use reduced by 94.8%
• Water consumption reduced by >75.5%
This technology utilizes combined high power pulsed UV laser and high frequency electrical discharge plasma, to create a high energy reaction zone at substrate interface, promoting rapid synthesis to achieve the required functional treatments.
Industries impacted: Automotive, Carpets, Apparel, Footwear, Paper, Film, Space, Healthcare Apparels, Domestic Upholstery and Home Furnishings, Contract Upholstery such as Transportation: Busses, Trains, Hotels, Hospitals and Stadiums, and technical textiles such as carbon fiber and more.
