UTSC to make use of SORBTEK staple fiber to expand PVA product offerings

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2014-10-22 16:00:00 – China

China based Unifi Textiles (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. (UTSC) a wholly owned subsidiary of Unifi Manufacturing, Inc., continues to develop its array of premium value-added (PVA) product offerings with the Company’s latest development, SORBTEK staple fiber, which provides permanent moisture management through a proprietary Catch, Move, Release technology.

The Sorbtek technology works by absorbing moisture, moving it away from the skin, and releasing it for quick evaporation, and it is incorporated into the staple fiber, making its moisture-management properties permanent. This allows the wearer of garments made with Sorbtek staple to remain cool, dry and comfortable.

In addition to moisture management, Sorbtek staple fiber provides inherent soil release properties to protect against everyday soils, such as sweat and grass. Other benefits of garments made with yarn spun with Sorbtek staple include soft drape, enhanced color retention and wrinkle resistance, making it easier to create garments with the comfort of cotton in conjunction with the functional advantages of polyester.

Ed Wickes, president of UTSC said that Sorbtek staple is an important part of UTSC’s commitment to providing customers with multiple options for value-added products. Sorbtek staple combines a cotton-like touch with moisture management and soil release properties.

Initial programs being launched with Sorbtek staple include Meng Na out of China, among others.

Sorbtek staple can be used in a variety of knit and woven apparel products including t-shirts, pants, jackets, polo shirts, sweaters and socks. It is also available for use in heather colors. UTSC will provide the domestic Chinese market with a full complement of specialty branded products.
