Continued investment in Modal
Lenzing Modal branded fibers are an important part in of the fiber portfolio of the producer of cellulosic fibers Lenzing AG, Lenzing/Austria. By adapting the Modal production process, Lenzing is further underscoring its work towards technological leadership.
The advantages of adapting the Modal production process are clear: customers benefit from the very good processability which makes it easier to produce high-quality yarns. Different climatic zones, which can lead to problems with processing, play a less important role. Even different spinning technologies play a lesser role when processing the new Lenzing Modal fibers. Moreover, higher production efficiency could be reached in the spinning mill.
The share of specialty fibers at Lenzing should be increased to 50 % of turnover by the year 2020. Next to the lyocell fiber Tencel, Lenzing Modal fibers and the MicroModal branded fibers play an important part in this.
