Please let me know if you want to schedule an appointment and we’ll be happy to show you our latest product releases. Information and samples showcasing Kinetic Colorization on VELCRO® products will be featured.
Velcro Industries and Katmandu have conducted tests on VELCRO® products for several months. The testing went well on both hook and loop and resulted in both companies deciding to release samples and information at Summer OR.
“VELCRO® brand hook and loop has been tested with Kinetic Colorization™ for chlorine, salt water, and laundering. Additionally, UV and abrasion tests have been performed and passed,” stated Mark Robinson, the President of Katmandu Inc.
Katmandu and Velcro Industries are both pleased with the results and stated the next stage is to decide how this breakthrough will be marketed. With Katmandu placing Kinetic Colorization™ into Colombia at AMEROTEX and Velcro Industries’ expansion into South America, there is tremendous growth potential in the market over the next few years for apparel trims using VELCRO® products and branding.
Markets that have been identified beyond apparel applications are SUP, Surf, Ski, back packing, skate, tennis, hunting and fishing, and home and garden. These markets have enormous potential for branding as well as custom VELCRO® brand products with Kinetic Colorization™.
Camouflage for military use or hunting and fishing have been tested and now match the apparel or even the packs and related equipment. Furthermore, short runs can be done using the green technology and process of Kinetic Colorization™ as it colorizes VELCRO® brand hook and loop.
For further information please contact Katmandu Inc. or Velcro Industries about the branding of your products with VELCRO® products utilizing Kinetic Colorization™.
