HeiQ Materials AG has signed an exclusive supply agreement with mattress fabric supplier BekaertDeslee for the supply of HeiQ’s recently launched HeiQ Allergen* Tech.
Under this agreement, BekaertDeslee will have exclusive worldwide rights to apply HeiQ Allergen* Tech to mattress ticking. Launched in October 2022, HeiQ Allergen* Tech is a 100% biobased, naturally derived technology that reduces exposure to inanimate allergens such as house dust-mite matter and pet allergens with the help of active probiotics.
It has been granted the Allergy UK Seal of Approval by The British Allergy Foundation following a review and assessment of the technology. Additionally, an independent certification has shown that HeiQ Allergen* Tech successfully reduces 83.6% of cat (hair) allergen, 76.5% of dog (hair) allergen and 96.6% of house dust-mite matter allergen. “Being the world’s leading specialist in the development and manufacturing of mattress textiles gives BekaertDeslee a special responsibility when it comes to providing the market with innovative solutions that address real-world problems,” said Frédéric Beucher, CEO of BekaertDeslee, based in Waregem, Belgium. “This new technology will contribute to our efforts in introducing sustainable products that provide better conditions for a good night’s sleep. We will commercialize this exclusive technology under our well-known Purotex brand, by naming the new generation of our products Purotex+ powered by HeiQ Allergen* Tech.”
