August 27, 2014

New Delhi – Philips India, a leading health and well-being company, today announced the launch of Philips PerfectCare Iron, a ground-breaking technological innovation in the Garment Care category. As the market leader in the Garment Care category, Philips India has found the perfect solution for the daily needs of its evolved and informed consumer.


As the world’s number one ironing brand with over fifty years expertise in ironing, Philips has invested heavily in research and development with the world's leading fabric specialists to change ironing for good. The result is Philips’ ground-breaking innovation – OptimalTemp – the only technology which maintains the perfect combination of temperature and steam so one no longer needs to change a temperature dial to iron different fabrics. Exclusive to Philips PerfectCare steam generators and unique pressurized steam iron, it allows one to go from linen to cotton to cashmere to silk, all on one perfect setting.


Commenting on the occasion, Mr. ADA Ratnam, President, Consumer Lifestyle, Philips India, said, “Philips strives to deliver innovative products and solutions that can improve the lives of the modern consumers who are more informed, aware and look for solutions that add to their lifestyle. PerfectCare is designed for the modern home that demands efficiency, state-of-the-art technology as well as aesthetics.”


Talking about the launch of the new product, Mr. Gulbahar Taurani, Director Marketing and Business Head, Domestic Appliances said, “With consumers increasingly moving from dry irons to steam irons, the market is opening up faster. Consumers are willing to invest in more advanced technology for their modern lifestyles and we at Philips are happy to bring them the best of our technology – PerfectCare, India’s first steam generator, with the OptimalTemp technology. An iron that just can’t burn your garment is now a reality.”  


With its OptimalTemp technology, Philips PerfectCare Aqua provides one temperature setting for all fabrics. 100 % safe and effective on both delicate and tough fabrics, this new product is faster than any other steam iron, and irons any fabric without having to adjust the temperature.

This wonder iron also attempted to enter the Limca Book of Records today by ironing a 100 meter gown trail made of 37 different fabrics in less than 2 hours. 2 units of the PerfectCare Aqua were deployed for the record. The Philips PerfectCare Aqua proved to be efficient, safe and hassle free during the entire record attempt.


Priced at MRP 23,495/- the new PerfectCare is available at modern trade outlets, traditional retail stores.
