Invista has announced that new products featuring the company’s EcoMade Technology will be shown at ISPO 2019, the world’s largest multi-segment trade fair focused on sports, which will be held from February 3-6, 2019, in Munich, Germany, in booth #C5-406. Invista is one of the largest integrated producers of chemical intermediates, polymers, and fibres.
Coolmax EcoMade fibre and Thermolite EcoMade fibre and insulation are made from certified amounts of recycled resources such as plastic bottles, and offer the active/outdoor apparel industry a more sustainable alternative to virgin fibres. EcoMade technology is a key part of the company’s all-encompassing sustainability vision, in which product sustainability is a critical component, according to Invista.
EcoMade technology gives new life to recycled resources by transforming them into fibres through a controlled process. This means less waste is going into landfills, which appeals to millennials and environmentally-conscious consumers. EcoMade technology is available for Lycra T400 and Lycra Dual Comfort Technologies, as well as for Coolmax and Thermolite brand names, which enables Invista customers to capitalise on each brand’s global awareness and reputation for high quality and performance to help drive sales downstream.
New! Thermolite T-Down EcoMade insulation will be displayed at ISPO. It is a sustainable alternative to down feathers at a lower cost that is GRS certified, made with recycled fibres, and offers key benefits over feather insulation. With its 500+ fill power, this insulation delivers lightweight warmth to cold weather outerwear, sleeping bags, and accessories.
New! Lycra Dual Comfort technology, that utilises Lycra T400 EcoMade fibre to create fabrics combining outstanding stretch and cooling characteristics, and ideally suited for performance tops, will also be a part of the show. Coolmax EcoMade technology that keeps the wearer cool, dry and comfortable by moving moisture away from the skin to the surface of the fabric where it evaporates, will be seen at ISPO’s booth. Thermolite EcoMade technology that delivers lightweight warmth to keep the wearer comfortable longer, will be presented at the expo.
