Printing specialities

Varioterm pigments

The Varioterm pigments are made from special heat-sensitive substances which have the property of appearing colored below a certain temperature and become colorless above the same temperature.

Varioterm dyes

The thermochromic substances constituting the Varioterm dyes are contained in spherical microcapsules insoluble in water.

The commercial physical form of the dyes is therefore constituted by a paste, in the aqueous phase, formed by the dispersion of these microcapsules.

Printing paste with swelling effect very resistant to maintenance.

In addition to the traditional finishings, new "wellness" finishing are available.

They allow to apply substances onto the fabrics so allowing the interaction with the final user and the surrounding environment and, so, bringing special benefits:

  • aroma aqualite: released of perfumed fragrances (lavender, rose, lemon, sandal, etc...)
  • tendre alo: aloe and chitosano
  • superfresh: anti-smoke / anti-smell
  • prethermo: thermoregulator at 25°C or 31°C
  • forage el: release of elagic acid (anti-infiammatory)
  • forage gl: release of linoleic acid (moisturizing)


  • FORGIN: a full range of alginate-based thickeners
  • FORGUM: a range of tamarind or Guar-based thickeners
  • FORGUM HH: CMC-based thickener suitable for reactive and disperse printing


ATR is one of the leading European manufacturers of adhesives for printing and it is represented in Italy by For.Tex.

A wide range of adhesives is available, both permanent – thermoplastic and heat-sensitive, solvent-based and differentiated by tack – hardness and adhesion.

Although not directly used, the adhesive layer works as a protection of the rubber mat, thus prolonging its duration and avoiding damages caused by scratches and abrasions.

Products for the daily maintenance of the carpet and total adhesive removal are also available.
