Palmetto Synthetics Signs CertainT Trademark License Agreement with Applied DNA for Synthetic Fiber Manufacture to Ensure Supply Chain Traceability, Transparency and Trust (10/24/17)
Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. has signed a new CertainT® trademark license agreement with Palmetto
Synthetics ("Palmetto"), a leader in the production of high quality, specialty synthetic fiber.
Palmetto's mission "is to be the leading global innovator and provider of specialty synthetic fiber
while fostering a culture of integrity, dignity and respect for their team members, business partner,
community and environment." The newly signed CertainT trademark licensing agreement enables
Palmetto to reach their goals of bringing transparency to their own manufacturing processes, and
also to provide their customers with traceability and trust in the original tagged synthetic fiber.
Under the CertainT® platform, customers are provided with secure, forensic guidelines for
monitoring the flow of product through the manufacturing process via molecular tagging, testing
and tracking. Routine inspection and authentication is transparent and certified throughout the
process via an integrated database and portal. CertainT also helps customers with meeting their
sustainability goals by 2020. Products that use recycled, renewable or re-usable materials that have
an eco-conscious composition can benefit from molecular tagging.
David Poston, President of Palmetto Synthetics stated "that to continue to be an industry leader, one
must embrace new technology in paving the way to commit to customer excellence through the
promotion of state of the art technology. As indicated in the past, we have our eye on the future and
we are excited about CertainT's platform and look forward to total implementation."
"The CertainT system physically traces the raw material, ingredient, component and product, so you
can claim that you are performing full traceability from source to shelf. That's the difference
between most standards that certify products that use a paper trail, or a mass-balance approach,
where certified raw materials, such as recycled PET can be easily mixed with non-certified ones.
CertainT can help assure product integrity and traceability by ensuring the product itself," stated Dr.
James A. Hayward, President and CEO of Applied DNA Sciences.
Applied DNA Sciences and Palmetto Synthetics will be co-presenting with Techmer PM at the
Synthetic Yarn Fibers Association Fall Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina in October 27, 2017.
