Pilbloc fibers from Birlacryl has been developed using a special technique to prevent “pilling” over repeated usage. Pilbloc fiber prevents “pill” formation in garments and subsequently slows down apparel ageing. These fibers have been engineered to have a sustainable anti-pilling performance throughout the life-time of a garment. Products made from Pilbloc fibers have been tested and proven by several international accrediting agencies. Pilbloc fibers deliver pilling performance of 4-4.5 grade in ICI Pill Box Test Method. These fibers give a silky soft touch and feel to the skin.
Pilbloc is a guarantee for anti-pilling performance throughout the lifetime of the garment since the anti-pilling properties are not obtained by chemical means. The response for Pilbloc range of products was excellent. At Spin Expo, Birlacryl reached out to Designers, Brands, Buying Houses, Merchandisers, Spinners and Fiber Traders. The visitors were intrigued by the new styles and blends of the products which were promoted at the event.
Particularly noticeable was the wide spectrum of visitors from different sectors of the industry who were interested in Pilbloc. Spin Expo 2011 has certainly reinforced the position of Pilbloc and strengthened its base in China.
