Today, workwear and safety clothing does not only have to provide protection, but should also be chic and fashionable. In addition to material and cut, accessories such as press studs are decisive for a fashionable look. Manufacturers and designers require products that look fashionable and meet high demands in terms of robustness and durability. Conventional push buttons cannot withstand the stress tests of the industrial washing process.

With the Polo Grip, Prym Fashion, the world's leading supplier of rivetable button closure systems and accessories for the apparel and textile industries, has a product in its portfolio that precisely meets these requirements. Prym Fashion thus has a snap fastener that is truly unique and comes with the deceptively real 3D thread button look of a real shirt sewing button. The calotte and thread optic are not dyed, but are made of abrasion-resistant plastic, injected in two colours and available in any colour combination. Never before have two different coloured plastics been processed into such fine structures to form a snap cap. A metallic effect makes the button shine in a noble mother-of-pearl shimmer.

The pushbutton cap of the Prym Polo Grip is made of extremely heat-resistant polyamide PA 6.6. The button and colour are therefore resistant to high temperatures, dimensionally stable and thus suitable for industrial laundry and leasing. The press studs are guaranteed to hold better than classic sewn-on buttons. Reserve buttons are therefore not needed. In addition, sewing can be dispensed with during production. Buttonholes are also no longer necessary. This also leads to considerable time and cost savings in production.

Processing is possible on all common machines from the existing machine park thanks to the supplied Polo Grip attachment punch. The Grip Fix 16''' stainless steel lower parts form the base. The Prym Grip Fix has proven itself for decades and is now one of the most widely used products on the market worldwide. One of the main advantages of the Prym Grip Fix is the gentle attachment process. The fabric is not cut, but displaced. At the same time, the buttons on the fabric are prevented from shifting and slipping, which means less rejects and higher quality. This is an excellent solution, especially for elastic and knitted fabrics.

Its durability in the industrial washing process generally exceeds that of the textiles used. A defined re-granulate content also allows the Polo Grip to score points in terms of sustainability.

Prym Fashion stands for top quality and ensures this through 100% machine control and the best service. This means that customers always get selected goods for trouble-free processing in fully automatic attaching machines. The Polo Grip is available in 19''' with a diameter of 12.3 mm and a thickness of 3 mm.
 

You can find out more about the Polo Grip at the A+A in Düsseldorf from 5 to 8 November.

All manufacturers who want to bring PPE onto the market within the European Union must comply with legal requirements. The new European PPE Regulation (2016/425/EU) has been in force since 21 April 2019. It replaces the European PPE Directive (89/686/EEC). This means that only PPE that complies with the new regulation may be placed on the market.

All those who manufacture PPE must therefore adapt their products to the basic requirements of the PPE Regulation in draft form. A comparison of these requirements was already published some time ago by TÜV Süd. Download here

Within the framework of European product safety law, manufacturers have a high degree of personal responsibility. According to the Product Safety Act (ProdSG), compliance with relevant requirements must be monitored by the manufacturers themselves.

Only those who meet the requirements can survive in today's competitive environment. However, competitive advantages often come primarily from an added value which can result from the higher efficiency of the products.

In the case of PPE and workwear clothing, for example, this added value is the resistance in the industrial washing process. Anyone who provokes limitations here, e.g. through the use of non-heat-resistant closure systems, risks shorter lifetimes and weakens their competitive position.

Prym has therefore developed special industrial laundry pushbutton systems for this segment:

  • All ring spring, S-spring and Gripfix/Variogrip button set variants made of stainless steel, nickel-plated and nickel-free silver, are suitable for clothing in the field of heat-flame protection and welder protection and suitable for industrial washing.

  • The serrated ring (Gripfix and Variogrip) in stainless steel is resistant in the area of heat-flame protection and welder protection. This variant is suitable for industrial laundry and well suited for polo shirts.

  • Articles in stainless steel with blackened surface (so that the silver-coloured buttons on the clothing are not so extremely noticeable) are resistant in the area of heat-flame protection and welder protection and suitable for industrial laundry.

  • The solid-coloured plastic button 2010 in the flame-retardant version is resistant to arc faults, heat and flames and fulfils welder protection requirements. It is also suitable for industrial washing.

Druckknopf-Weiterverarbeitung

Mit einer neuen Produktionsstätte zur Druckknopf-Weiterverarbeitung verkürzt Prym-Fashion die Lieferzeiten für indische Hersteller von Kinder- und Babybekleidung um mehr als 50 Prozent. © Prym Fashion

Gute Nachricht für Produzenten in Indien
Von  Iris Schlomski

Prym-Fashion hat im Frühjahr mit Prym Fashion India Pvt. Ltd. in Chennai (Tamil Nadu) eine Produktionsstätte zur Druckknopf-Weiterverarbeitung eröffnet.

Damit verkürzt Prym Fashion die Lieferzeiten für Produzenten in Indien.

In der Anlage werden seither die beliebten Gripfix-Druckknopfverschlüsse für den Kinder- und Babybekleidungsmarkt lackiert. Durch das Stanzen der Druckknöpfe in Deutschland und die auftragsbezogene Lackierung bei Prym Fashion India reduziert Prym die Lieferzeiten für indische Hersteller von Kinder- und Babybekleidung um mehr als 50 Prozent.

Brian Moore, Chief Executive Officer von Prym Fashion:

„Tamil Nadu ist der größte Textilfabrikstandort in Indien. Prym Fashion India bringt uns somit näher an unseren indischen Kundenstamm. Farbe ist so wichtig für die Attraktivität von Kinder- und Babykleidung, und das ganze Jahr über werden immer häufiger neue Kollektionen eingeführt. Unsere Fähigkeit, die Vorlaufzeiten für unsere farblich abgestimmten Gripfix-Druckknopfsysteme jetzt deutlich zu verkürzen, bietet unseren Kunden in der Region einen deutlichen Mehrwert.“

Gripfix – der Top-Seller von Prym Fashion

Gripfix ist der Top-Seller von Prym Fashion in der Babybekleidungslinie des Unternehmens und verfügt über ein sicheres Fünf-Zackensystem, das weder reißt noch abreißt. Das flache Design der Gripfix-Verschlüsse maximiert den Trage-Komfort. Das Engagement des Unternehmens für Produktqualität und Zuverlässigkeit macht Gripfix-Verschlüsse sowohl langlebig als auch sicher für den Einsatz bei Säuglings- und Kinderbekleidung.

Prym Fashion India hat seinen Sitz in der schnell wachsenden Chennai Free Trade Zone, sodass Prym Fashion emaillierte Druckknopfsysteme mit sehr kurzen Lieferzeiten an Bekleidungshersteller in Südasien, einschließlich Sri Lanka und Bangladesch, exportieren kann. „Diese Einrichtung ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um unsere Präsenz in dieser wichtigen und wachsenden Bekleidungsregion auszubauen, und wir entwickeln bereits Pläne für den Ausbau unserer Dienstleistungen in Indien in naher Zukunft“, kündigt Moore an.

Manufactured to Close the Sustainability Loop for Apparel and Textile Industry

STOLBERG, GERMANY – May 6, 2019 – Prym Fashion announced today the launch of its new environmentally friendly snaps in two options, ecoWhite and ecoGreen. Prym Fashion’s L.I.F.E (Low Impact Fastener Ensemble) certified snaps are made using less material inputs, and are designed to provide the solution to a total eco-package. The new snaps are the first ecofriendly alternative available to various market segments of the apparel and textile industry, including activewear, children’s wear and babywear.

“We understand that today’s consumers expect brands to offer products that are completely sustainable, including the fabric and the trim,” said Brian Moore, chief executive officer of Prym Fashion. “These eco-friendly snaps allow our customers to consider every detail and increase the overall sustainability of their products.”

Made from recycled plastic bottles, Prym Fashion’s ecoWhite snaps eliminate the use of crude oil and associated processing compared to plastic snaps made with virgin raw materials. One recycled plastic bottle can produce 13 snaps. Prym Fashion’s ecoGreen snaps are made from plant-based renewable resources, such as potato starch, and reduce fossil resources and greenhouse emissions. ecoGreen snaps are biodegradable and recyclable. Coming soon, Prym Fashion will also offer ecoBlue plastic snaps that will be made from recycled ocean plastic.

“As brands and retailers in the textile industry continue to raise their sustainability goals, details like trim will become increasingly important,” added Moore. “Prym Fashion is committed to making snaps that make a difference.”

Apparel fasteners and accessories supplier Prym Fashion is to open a new fastener finishing facility in India later this month in a move it says will halve the lead-times to producers of children's and babywear in the country.

The new facility, which will be known as Prym Fashion India, will be located in Chennai, the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu.

Operations will begin at the site this month and will include the enamel finishing of the company's Gripfix fasteners for the children's and babywear markets.  

By stamping the fasteners in Germany and providing made-to-order enamel finishing at Prym Fashion India, the company says it will be able to reduce lead times to India-based producers by more than 50%.

"Tamil Nadu is home to the largest number of textile mills in India, and the location of Prym Fashion India puts us closer to our Indian customer base," says Brian Moore, CEO of Prym Fashion. 

"Colour is so important to the appeal of children's and babywear, and new collections are being introduced with greater frequency throughout the year. Our ability to significantly reduce lead-times on our Gripfix fastener with dyed-to-match colours will provide added value to customers based in the area."

Gripfix is Prym Fashion's top seller in the company's babywear range and has a secure five-prong system that will neither tear nor come off. The flat design of Gripfix fasteners maximises comfort, and the company's commitment to product quality and reliability make them both durable and safe for use with clothing designed for infants and children. 

Prym Fashion India will be located within the fast-growing Chennai Free Trade Zone, allowing Prym Fashion to export enamelled fasteners to apparel manufacturers in South Asia, including Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. 

"This facility is a great starting point from which to enlarge our presence in this important and growing apparel region, and we are already developing plans to expand our services in India in the near future," adds Moore. 

Earlier this year the company introduced new low impact fasteners that have been developed to meet increasing global demand for sustainable apparel.
