Amni Soul Eco®

INNOVATION AND EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR THOSE WHO SEARCH FOR THE PERF4ECT HORMONY BETWEEN FASHION AND THE RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

BIODEGRADABLE DNA

In order to ensure the commitment with the planet preservation and provide us sustainable solutions for the textile industry, Rhodia – Solvay Group has developed AMNI SOUL ECO®, the only biodegradable polyamide yarn in the world. Its improved formula allows all cloth made with this innovative technology to quickly decompose after being properly disposed of in landfills.

ECO-CONSCIOUS DISPOSAL

Every textile product has a life-cycle which ends with its disposal in the environment after a period of use.

The unique AMNI SOUL ECO® technology keeps the durability and the quality clothing, thanks to the decomposition process that only starts when the garment is discarded and reaches the landfill having contact with microorganisms existing in this anerobic environment. Which accomplish the yarn biodegradation.

Unlike other fibers which take decades to be decomposed, AMNI SOUL ECO® TAKES APPROXIMATELY THREE years* to be eliminated from the planet, reducing the environmental impact and ensuring a better world for future generations.

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION

AMNI SOUL ECOR technology is part of a new generation of sustainable yarns coming from a process that respects the environment. This care for the planet is present in the reuse of water used in its manufacturing process and in the issue of greenhouse gases, which are treated prior to the emission in the environment preserving the ozone layer and nature.

SPECIAL BENEFITS

In addition to the ecological and sustainable properties, Amni Soul EcoR meets all the market needs due to its properties to be dyed in different colors as well as other advantages such as:

  • Soft touch
  • Extreme comfort
  • Quality
  • Moisture absorption
  • Breathability
  • Easy washing
  • Fast drying
  • Recyclability

Garments made with Amni Soul Eco® suffer no changes when stored, having a long product shelf life similar to conventional polyamides.

 

AMNI SOUL ECO® Can be used in all textile industry segments: lingerie, hosiery, socks, underwear, beachwear, sportswear, Jeanswear, casual and fashion.

THERMOLITE® Pro Infrared

EMBRACE THE COLD

THERMOLITE® brand technology solutions, backed by distinctive new consumer-oriented branding, can be used across the broad product range. Fabrics and insulations made with THERMOLITE® brand technology can be tailored to meet the end user’s performance needs and are certified to ensure class-leading performance regardless of supply source.

 

CHOOSE PRO FOR ADVANCED PERFORMANCE

THERMOLITE® INFRARED technology is an innovative solution that is solar-activate by the sun, or artificial light sources, using a unique blend of near infrared (NIR) yarns with proprietary additives. Yarns absorb the NIR rays to raise the temperature of the garment, while the system’s integrated high-quality insulation traps air, and minimizes heat loss, to help optimize performance in freezing temperatures.

 

BENEFITS

ØSolar-activated technology absorbs NIR and raises the temperature of the garment

ØTHERMOLITE®INFRARED technology lasts the lifespan of a garment and does not wash off

ØGood insulation (CLO) levels

ØQuick-drying performance

ØGood fabric and insulation stability

ØFabric certification processes help ensure consistent high performance regardless of supply source

 

RECOMMENDED END USES

LYCRA® EcoMade Fiber

The clothes we wear, how we care for them, and the length of time we keep them in use all have a significant impact on the environment. The projected growth of the middle class is expected to further increase demand for apparel, putting pressure on already limited resources. Thus, our industry needs to rapidly develop solutions for a circular economy. Under its planet agenda platform, The LYCRA Company is working to do just that, offering a variety of fiber and fabric solutions that reduce or divert waste, keeping materials in use. Our newest offering—LYCRA® EcoMade fiber—diverts pre-consumer waste by putting it back into production.

ATTRIBUTES KEY BENIFITS
Same unique performance as LYCRA® fiber Comfort and freedom of movement
Fit with circular economy Diverts wastes, keeps materials in production
Certified products* Assurance of transparency, safety and social compliance

 

HOW IT’S DONE

LYCRA® fiber waste is collected at our manufacturing sites and blended with virgin fiber at specific concentrations, resulting in a product that contains pre-consumer waste.

CONSUMER DEMAND FOR SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS

A recently study by Refinery 29** of 500+ women in the U.S. aged 18+ showed that:

ØTwo of three think sustainability is one of the top three issues impacting our world today

ØOver 80% are “very or somewhat invested” in improving their ecological footprint

ØOver 50% say they want to improve their footprint in the area of textile and apparel waste

Lycra® Fiber

LYCRA° fiber is a man-made elastane fiber. It has unique stretch and recovery properties that add comfort fit shape retention, durability and freedom of movement. This is achieved thanks to the unique properties of the fiber which can be stretched up to seven times its initial length before springing back to the original position once tension is released

Many natural or man-made fibers can be mixed with LYCRA® fiber and very small amounts of LYCRA’ fiber can transform the performance of a fabric – as hale as 2% LYCRA® fiber content can improve fabric performance. There are various ways of integrating LYCRA® fiber with other fibers to provide fabrics for all needs.

A fabric ingredient and not a fabric itself, the fact that the LYCRA® fiber brand is well known throughout the world bears testament to The LYCRA Company marketing efforts. The LYCRA® fiber brand boasts the global consumer awareness of 88%.
