The sporting goods industry is under constant pressure to innovate. A good example of that is the manufacture of track shoes. Consumers expect new models with new designs that promise better performance, and every year! This demands high-quality processing of ever-changing material combinations, and more and more, consumers are also looking for environmentally responsible production without solvents.
The “green sneaker” was born – a sneaker produced without the use of solvents at any point in the manufacturing process. But to combine environmental responsibility with new material combinations requires high performance physical pre-treatment of the materials used.
