Rhodia + Fulgar to expand intelligent textile yarn Emana

Rhodia, a member of the Solvay group, and Fulgar, Europe's largest producer of polyamide 66 yarn for the textile industry, engage discussions aiming an agreement to produce and market Emana yarn in Europe.

Emana is the latest innovation in textiles from Rhodia. The result of four years of development in Rhodia's research centers, Emana is a polyamide 66 yarn which incorporates bioactive mineral crystals in its polymer matrix, making it possible to produce clothes that promote a high level of interaction between the fabric and skin, improving blood microcirculation and cellular metabolism.

Proven in scientific studies, the benefits of clothing made from Emana include improved skin elasticity and smoothness, postponed muscle fatigue and reduced signs of cellulite. The product is recommended for all types of clothing, including underwear, shapewear, sportswear and fashion, seeking to promote consumer health and wellbeing.

With patents applied worldwide, the benefits of this innovative yarn has been successfully assessed by independent world-class laboratories, through recognized scientific protocols, clinical tests and rigorous statistical data treatment. It has also been certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 - Class 1, being suitable for manufacturing of any type of clothing, including for children.

Products made from Emana also feature a versatile range of colors, do not lose their functionality when washed (permanent effect) and, like any conventional polyamide 66, are easily washed and kept. Just as with other products made from Rhodia's microfibers, articles made from Emana are lightweight and offer a unique feeling of comfort, thanks to the gentle touch of polyamide 66.

"We are proud to engage discussions with Fulgar, a large and renowned textile company in Europe, which is fully aligned with Rhodia's and Solvay's values in the development of sustainable innovations aimed at improving people's quality of life," commented Marcos De Marchi, President of the GBU Rhodia Fibras.

"For us, this initiative represents a qualitative leap in the provision of polyamide textile products to our customers in Europe. We have found at Rhodia and Solvay partners who are engaged in the appreciation of the textile sector, creating and developing innovative products that meet consumers' needs," says Roberto Medina, Head of Sales, from Fulgar.

Founded in 1980, Fulgar SPA is the European leader in the field of polyamide 66 for spinning and covered spandex.

Rhodia, a member of the Solvay Group, is an international specialty chemicals company resolutely committed to sustainable development.
