1901 – Agosti family creates a big textile company in Legnano (Ettore Agosti and brother): further specialization in cotton, color, print and chemicals auxiliaries
1968 – Romolo Agosti, in Pero, creates Helios, a compact and flexible company uniquely devoted to the creation of sizing agents
1987 – Helios, now leader of sizing in Italy, becomes Laros in Nerviano and explores new countries all around the world
Since 115 years the same family is running an experience which is part of the famous ‘textile made in Italy’.
Fashion requires creativity, new technologies and fabrics.
Fabrics are made of yarns.
Laros chemicals make the yarn stronger, smoother and weaving friendly.
LAROS IS CHARGING ENEA WITH A DOUBLE PROGRAM RESEARCH (ENTE NAZIONALE PER LE ENERGIE ALTERNATIVE NATIONAL CORPORATION FOR ALTERNATIVE ENERGIES)
Actual proceedings for PVA removal from textile wastewaters are poorly efficient and require a higher water and energy demand. In order to achieve this objective, Laros is focusing on new proceedings, using enzymatic and microbiological pre-treatments (biodegradation) and membrane technologies (ultrafiltration and nanofiltration).
Laros purpose is also PVA substitution with sizing agents of natural origin (starch derivatives, animal keratins, soy proteins). Their chemical-physical properties are similar to pva, due their strong affinity and yarn adherence. The main advantage respect to synthetic products application is that they can be used in less quantities and can be removed from textile fabrics with smaller environmental impact procedures.
