New yarn developments at Ispo Munich
Hyosung is developing new markets with ‘Mipan regen aqua-x’ and ‘regen cotna,’ which it developed in light of the increasing demand for environment-friendly textiles in the outdoor/sports market. regen is a textile made from recycling waste PET bottles. It is an environment-friendly yarn that reduces CO2 and landfills. Hyosung combined it with ‘Aqua-X,’ which is cool to the touch, and sweat-absorbent amp quick drying, to enable users to feel comfortable and pleasant after a long workout. Also, the company added the function of the polyester yarn ‘cotna’ to it to develop a yarn that has little lint or wrinkles, and maintains the soft touch unique to cotton materials when clothes are made.
Hyosung applied elastane yarn, such as ‘creora Color,’ which has a vivid color, and ‘creora Highclo,’ which is robust against chlorine in swimming pools, to these yarns, and introduces flexible and functional fabrics. To develop fabric combined with the advantages of the existing differentiated yarns, the 3 PUs within the Textile Business Unit, i.e. the Nylon Polyester Fiber PU, the Spandex PU and the Fabric PU, collaborated from the product development stage to exhibition planning stage, which was an unprecedented occurrence.
