Lenzing to invest in modal production process

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-11-09 14:00:00 – Vienna

Lenzing Modal branded fibers are an important part in Lenzing’s fiber portfolio. The fibers specialists stand out with 50 years of experience in the production and marketing of the fibers. By adapting the Modal production process, Lenzing is further underscoring its work towards technological leadership.

Specialization is a key element of Lenzing’s strategy. The share of specialty fibers at Lenzing should be increased to 50% of turnover by the year 2020. Lenzing Modal fibers and the MicroModal branded fibers play an important part in this.

Lenzing is continuing to be one of the technological leaders in the field of Modal production even after fifty years. They are working continuously on improvements to their processes and have set further benchmark in Modal production with the adaptation of their production steps, said Robert van de Kerkhof, CCO of the Lenzing group.

The advantages of adapting the Modal production process are clear as 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. A patent has been filed for this new technology making Lenzing Modal fibers universally applicable in the fiber processing industry.

For fifty years Lenzing Modal fibers have been a permanent feature in international collections in the fashion industry. Lenzing Modal fibers are particularly successful with figure-hugging products such as day and night wear and homewear. Certification according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® Class 1 makes the fibers particularly well suited to baby and children’s clothing, which could be a future market for Lenzing Modal fibers.

The Lenzing Modal fibers production is largely on beech wood and the fibers are bio-degradable. The eco-friendly production at the site in Lenzing – with high recovery rates of process ingredients and very low air emissions – Lenzing Modal fibers are the Edelweiss® fiber technology fibers which stands for innovative environmental technology
