Premium textile decoration with lasting feel-good effect

Fashion has never had as much personality as it does today. But there has never been so much competition in this business either. You need to make sure you stand out and, by doing this, you need to make a unique statement. This is can be achieved using our fashion decorations.

Synchron Markings has a large portfolio of metallised colours and holographic designs that can be used to decorate fabric. With metallised foils, it´s possible to create metal effects on pre-treated textiles, artificial leather and also genuine leather. Top rate technology accompanied by relevant market knowledge guarantee the high quality of our special purpose foils.


Decoration for fashion

Transfer presses for t-shirt decoration are also very common nowadays. This up-and-down process performs nearly without any pressure, but with high temperature and long dwell times. For this application, the textile has to be pre-treated with suitable adhesives. During the transfer process the heat and pressure release the lacquer package from the carrier film and the heat sensitive adhesive instantly bonds to the pre-treated textile or artificial leather. In the case of textiles, the adhesive of the foil will not adhere to the bare fabric, only to wherever the adhesive is printed.


As part of the process chain in the textile industry, we are aware of our responsibility to people and the environment. With LUXOR®/ALUFIN® TX-A and TX-A ST, we make our contribution to sustainable and safe textile decoration. Our goal is to extend the life cycle of garments and make them look attractive for longer, such as:

  • Clothing
  • Sportswear
  • Shoes
  • Accessories
  • Home textiles.

We do not use any ingredients that are hazardous to health for our transfer finishings, as product safety is our top priority. Certified in accordance with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, we are proving that our textile finishings can be manufactured in accordance with the strictest requirements, free of harmful substances, and can even be used for baby clothing (product class 1). For our customers, this means more transparency within the production chain. Would you like to see for yourself? Request our OEKO-TEX® certificate now and become a GREEN LEADER with LEONHARD KURZ.

There is a constant focus on enhancing local design capability and improving our ability to react to in-demand, in-season sales.
