Tanatex develops innovative, textile processing solutions, ranging from pre-treatment to finishing for both classical and technical textiles. They also continuously strive to exceed expectations in a world with growing environmental awareness:

Tanatex supplies its global customers with quality wet processing products and using a highly equipped technical service lab they can tackle any challenges that you may face. For over 50 years, the company has proven to be a reliable partner in solving customers’ challenges whilst meeting international standards regarding quality, health, environment and safety.

Where can these textile processing products be used?

In the UK, textile chemical sales are driven by value for money, which is not always the cheapest products on the market, but those which pro rata perform the best, add value or prevent hidden costs. Tanatex products provide that kind of reassurance, reducing the need for rework and driving up the quality and therefore the value for the end customer. This selection of chemicals is used in both classical and technical textiles available for a variety of fabrics and applications.
