To overcome the difficulty in dyeing on lycra, Everflow Petrofils Ltd (EPL) has developed an alternate product which is directly fibre dyed lycra yarn and need not be dyed again. This is a very low priced and faster way to get cotton lycra yarn suitable for shirting. EPL has also launched nylon spun dyeing to provide low priced high quality nylon.
 
“We have been constantly doing research in Indian markets and seeking for the qualities which are desired by our buyers but we are unable to get them at desired prices,” says EPL director Pinkesh Jain.
 
“We have moulded ourselves as the provider of alternate yarns of all the high valued qualities available in the world,” he adds.
 
A 15-member EPL team comprising highly skilled professionals, headed by Jain, visited and studied all major textile hubs in India including Ludhiana, Surat, Tiruppur, Bangalore, Delhi, Kolkata, and Ahmedabad. The team found that there is a huge demand of high value qualities such as linen, indigo cotton, nylon blend, etc and these are offered by big apparel brands at very high price.
 
“The team concluded that there is a need in Indian market to convert these high value qualities into affordable qualities. Hence we have set up our own R&D department comprising small sample spinning machine (for new yarns development), sample warping machine, dyeing unit, a loom for woven, knitting machine and a lab equipped with all necessary testing instruments,” informs Jain.
 
“We also have R&D department at our office in China. This team help us to source and develop the new qualities which are yet to be introduced in India,” he adds.
 
With the help of its China R&D department, EPL has developed and introduced unique qualities such as Polycel yarn (also known as poly-mercerized) which is affordable alternate of high quality viscose and cotton, acrylic look-alike 100% polyester which is an alternate of acrylic yarn offering high colour depth and softness as good as acrylic, viscose siro spun yarn which is low priced alternate for high quality Lenzing/Tencel yarns, and cationic viscose which is an affordable alternate of woollen suiting. It has also created low priced look-alike of linen yarn.
 
For the Indian market, EPL team realised the need to immediately develop some new products to fill the gap in the textile market. So, it has introduced fibre dyed lycra yarn, a very low priced cotton lycra yarn suitable for shirting.
 
In view of an increase in demand of sportswear, EPL took responsibility to develop and provide low priced high quality nylon. It has introduced nylon spun dyeing.
 
EPL has also developed 100% polyester dye-able yarn which has its own stretch, soft feel, super dry fit, moisture control and peel free.
 
“Our motive is to provide high quality product at low price without compromising the feel, quality, durability of the product,” concludes Jain. (RKS)
