Fulgar launches fibre made from castor oil seeds

Italian fibre producer Fulgar said it has introduced a new way of producing fibres to interpret the needs and values of today's society, creating a perfect synthesis of performance and environmental awareness.

“Years of research have led to the development of Evo by Fulgar, an innovative high-performance fibre made of a biopolymer derived entirely from castor oil seed,” it said in a press release.

“Suitable for all textile applications and an ideal solution for the sportswear world, Evo by Fulgar is ultra-light, super stretch and extremely breathable,” it added.

“It is also quick-drying, non-iron and offers natural thermal and bacterio-static properties, which ensure maximum comfort and unmatched performance, while retaining an intense eco-awareness,” Fulgar noted.

Its manufacture is supported by the cultivation of castor oil seeds that grow in arid regions not suited to other forms of agriculture.

“The biopolymer that forms the basic constituent of Evo by Fulgar has no adverse impact on the human food chain, unlike many other bio-based polymers that use natural products otherwise destined for the food sector,” the company explained.

According to Fulgar, sustainability is one of the crucial elements in Fulgar's commitment to social responsibility and a philosophy based on the concept of 'A better way to the Future'.

“This strategy is an outstanding example of corporate behaviour inspired by environmental awareness, working towards conservation and the improvement of the global ecosystem,” it observed.

Another product in its portfolio is the Q-Nova by Fulgar, an innovative Nylon 6/6 fibre produced with 99 per cent recycled raw materials, and developed entirely by Fulgar using an eco-sustainable process. (AR)
