Sinterama partners with Polygiene to develop Newlife a 100pc recycled fibre

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-05-17 11:00:00 – Malmo

Sinterama, the international leader in production of polyester yarn, has partnered with Polygiene, the world leader in odour control and freshness technology to develop a 100 percent recycled fibre 'Newlife' which is imbued with permanent odour control technology during production, rather than having a standard topical application in the yarn and fabric finishing stages.

Sinterama’s Newlife is a unique, complete and certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns coming from 100 percent post consumer PET bottles sourced and processed into a polymer through a mechanical process and spun into yarn exclusively and entirely in Italy that is also 100 percent recyclable at the garment level.

This whole process constitutes Sinterama’s proprietary High Tech Conversion Model (HTCM) which has become a benchmark in mechanical recycling.

In Sinterama’s Newlife range, the process offers customers 100 percent post-consumer recycled, anti-bacterial yarns. As the yarn is treated at fibre-level it will bring considerable benefits to the customer in terms of odour control, easy care and longer lasting garments, and open opportunities for the two brands in important categories: workwear and the care-sector, with potential to develop into other categories as well.

They are very proud of the cooperation with such an innovation leader as Polygiene. The agreement fits perfectly with the tradition and the strategy of Sinterama to develop and innovate constantly, giving our customers durable, healthy, green solutions, with additional features to delight the end user, said Guglielmo Fiocchi, Sinterama CEO.

Christian von Uthmann, Polygiene CEO said that they are excited to begin working with Sinterama as this will open new doors for them in categories where they see large growth potential. The care sector where they first started, as well as the corporate/workwear industry will both benefit as Polygiene treated fabrics will be capable of withstanding industrial level laundering.

In addition, the shorter lead-times with the ability of pre-treated fabrics to be stored and colored is an exceptional market advantage to an even wider audience.

Matteo Soppera, head of product marketing at Sinterama said that their experience in recycled, high tech polyester filament yarn is a new concept for the textile market and they see the application appealing to a number of sectors.
