DaFon International in Taiwan has created a range of moisture-wicking, quick-drying, breathable knits combining CoolVisions filament with polyester, picked up by local performance brand Santo for its Win-Fit collection.
Other innovations - Forces of Nature gear by Apparel Strategic Alliances owes its performance cred to CoolVisions + Cotton knits from Grupo Miro in Mexico. The company launched Virtu-Scan Apparel, a line of thermally-regulating performance safety apparel featuring CoolVisions + Cotton. The gear features a logo that can be scanned to confirm the wearerâ€™s identity.
According to the manufacturer Hard-core performance brands will benefit from new CoolVisions dyeable filament, commercialised by Indorama Ventures at IPI Rayong, Thailand. Development is also underway at US spinner Premiere Fibers.
CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene fibre by FiberVisions is proving to be a versatile, all-performance partner in a raft of new hybrid developments for the outdoor market, many with an eye to sustainability. A disperse-dyeable polypropylene, CoolVisions fibre provides mills and brands with the means to create differentiation in fabric structure, pattern, and coloration.
The latest development in CoolVisions products comes in an inspired odour-control yarn from FilSpec called FreshFil. The Canadian-based technical spinner has combined a polyester fibre impregnated with zinc oxide with CoolVisions staple. A number of CoolVisions developments will be on display at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show, which takes place from 23-26 July, in Denver, CO.
The company reports that the lightweight, moisture-wicking, thermally-regulating polypropylene staple fibre is perfect for spinning with merino wool or cotton, creating yarns that combine polypropyleneâ€™s performance attributes with the comfort of natural fibres, without the use of additives or topical enhancements.
Susan Lynn, Global Sales and Marketing Manager for CoolVisions explains that, â€œFreshFil yarns with CoolVisions provide freshness and UV protection in lightweight apparel, adding to polypropyleneâ€™s inherent performance benefits such as moisture management, breathability, thermal regulation, and durability.â€ She also added that, â€œItâ€™s the best of both worlds for outdoor and active brands.â€
