After launching the Newlife yarn platform at key events such as Expofil in Paris, World Textile Summit and Itma in Barcelona, Filature Miroglio has presented its innovative Newlife platform to the workwear, sportswear and prevention textiles market at A+A (Düsseldorf, October 18-21, 2011).

A+A 2011 in Düsseldorf kicked off with record exhibitor numbers: 60.100 trade visitors, more than ever before in the event's history (2009: 55,800), 1,600 exhibitors from 54 nations featured at the trade fair (one in four visitors came from abroad). The event saw a significant rise here particularly from countries in South and Central America.

The A+A Congress attracted over 5,000 participants and offered a range of topical themes on social developments, upcoming reforms at national and international level, technical and organisational innovations as well as new scientific findings.

Newlife yarns are fully derived from recycled post-consumption plastic bottles using a mechanical process and certified as 100% made in Italy along the whole supply chain. The chain is therefore completely traceable.

The exclusivity of the technology used in the creation of Newlife springs from a partnership approach which can be summarized as follows:

• DEMPA: Italian company whose role is to source selected postconsumer bottles from waste recycling bins located in the north of Italy.
• DENTIS: Italian company that collects the selected material from Demap and through a mechanical (not chemical) process, converts it into a polyester polymer made entirely of recycled bottles, suitable for Filature Miroglio's spinning process.
• FILATURE MIROGLIO: uses all its 30 years experience, technological know-how and research commitment to transform Dentis polymer into a range of ultra high quality and performance recycled polyester filament yarns – Newlife - suitable for a wide variety of applications and with the same level of performance and quality of yarns made with virgin polyester.
• The entire process is Oekotex certified and has also obtained the Plastica Seconda Vita trademark issued by the Istituto Italiano dei Plastici (I.I.P.)

The Newlife range includes POY, flat, textured, microfibre and hollow section yarns for a wide variety of end uses such as fashion, sportswear, outdoor, furnishing, contract and accident prevention textiles, to name but a few. Newlife also comes in a wide range of counts that reflect technical and environmental performance standards and always meet targeted end use expectations.

At A + A Filature Miroglio highlighted some of the many characteristics of Newlife in particular:
• moisture management
• cotton touch
• antibacterial with silver ions
• UV protection
