Limonta Fabrics to launch new Energy collection
May '12
A first time exhibitor at Performance Days (May 9 & 10, 2012, Munich), Limonta will be showcasing a new collection of fabrics targeting performance sportswear.

Based in the Como region of Italy, Limonta Fabrics is introducing a new division called Energy. Developed specifically for performance sports apparel, the collection is organized in 8 product groups and includes a full range of high-tech woven and laminated fabrics.

Specializing in stretch woven fabrics, the new Limonta Energy Line includes two groups of fabrics boasting either two-way or four-way elasticity. A wide variety of weave textures and blends are available, including polyamide/Lycra, polyester/Lycra and cotton/polyamide/Lycra blends. These fabrics are ideal for ski and snowboard pants, as well as golfwear and horseback riding apparel.

The multilayer product group is available in two or three-layer bonded versions, made with or without a membrane and on stretch or non-stretch grounds. These soft shell products are designed for performance sports apparel and combine varied face and back fabrics and membranes in different performance levels to target a wide array of end-uses.

These two families are based on non-stretch woven fabrics, in 100% polyamide, 100% polyester and in blends with cotton. The FX1 group is made up of single fabrics enhanced with performance finishes, including down-proofing, windproofing, water resistance, etc. The FXR family combines rigid fabrics with functional laminates or coatings. Waterproof and breathable membranes are available in several levels of performance (from 10000 to 20000 g/m2/24 h for breathability and 10000 to 20000 mm water column for waterproofness). Other functional finishes available include UV protection, quick drying, etc.

Special coatings, resins and laminates make up the SCT range and provide added performance to face fabrics, linings as well as drop liners. Limonta offers many types of processes to address all needs including waterproofness and breathability, thermoregulation, etc. A special aluminum membrane offers thermal insulation by reflecting body heat to keep the user warm.

Fabrics made with high tenacity fibers form the HITY product group, which addresses the needs of outerwear, from mountaineering to free climbing and covering outdoor activities in general, as well as workwear. The abrasion-resistant fabrics developed by Limonta are available in several types of fibers, including Cordura, Kevlar and Vectran.

With the new Energy Line, Limonta has developed an extensive range of fabrics targeting many performance apparel needs. The first collection spans weights ranging from 40 to 500 g/m2 and will, when fully developed, include 150 to 200 references.

A fully integrated company, Limonta Fabrics has invested in new equipment to develop the Energy Line collection. The company controls all the stages of manufacturing, from weaving and dyeing to laminating and finishing, which are all done in the company's factory in Italy.
