The new range of Ecoya solution-dyed yarns opens the way to the future of excellent colour fastness combined with a low environmental footprint. It is the first step in Libolon's global “EcoFlying Plan” to offer products that comply with the “Cradle to Cradle” concept.

Taiwan-based Libolon is introducing its new range of Ecoya solution-dyed yarns at the upcoming Performance Days road show in November 2011. The innovative dyeing process cuts CO2 emissions by 62% and reduces COD waste water by 67%. Ecoya further minimizes the use of water and chemicals compared to tradition dyeing processes by respectively 89% and 63%.

The high quality process offers excellent colour fastness, there is no risk of migration to the lining fabric and dark and light colours can be freely combined. Libolon guarantees colour fastness to washing, water, perspiration, and rubbing to 4~5 degrees. In addition, colour fastness is guaranteed to 4 degrees after 400 hours under the sunlight test.

This new high-tech Ecoya process is one big step in Libolon's strategy to develop products that have a lighter environmental footprint and integrate the notion of Product Life Cycle for companies looking to design ecologically-oriented product ranges. The launch of Ecoya is the first example of Libolon's “EcoFlying Plan” a visionary quest to offer products that comply with the rigorous standards of the “Cradle to Cradle” principle.

In 2007, thanks to high recognition and support from the market, two Taiwan-based companies, LeaLea and Li Peng, decided to merge forces to integrate their polyester, nylon and synthetic fabrics under a new company name: LIBOLON.

Libolon is now the umbrella brand covering both polyester and nylon fields as well as providing an array of services including polymerization, spinning, weaving, dyeing and post-finishing processes in Asia.

Li Peng Enterprise was established in 1975 and started as a factory producing paper printing under the Transcolor brand. Starting in the year 2000, the company shifted production to nylon chips, filament yarns and synthetic fabrics.
