Trevira creates moisture control fibre for workwear

Climate catastrophes have caused shortfalls in the supply of natural fibres, there have been increasing difficulties in the wool market, and there is a growing global focus on sustainability. These factors have brought man-made fibres more into the foreground again – and mainly polyester. The fibre manufacturer Trevira is meeting this trend with a new fibre for high quality clothing, one that shows great potential in terms of innovation, coupled with supreme comfort for the wearer, and it is recyclable.

The new fibre is called Trevira Moisture Control and supplies these requirements. Fabrics made from it have the proven characteristics of Trevira apparel textiles, including very good pilling properties, excellent fastness to colour, resilience and easy care qualities. In addition, they offer an improved semi-dull appearance, firstclass soft handle, and optimal moisture management, above all in 100% Trevira qualities.

Research at the Hohenstein Institutes has demonstrated in terms of appearance and comfort that in every respect a suit in 100% Trevira Moisture Control matches a classic business suit in 100 % wool. Made from the new fibres, the Trevira suit impresses with its elegant, high quality looks, its very good wear properties and its standard of comfort, assessed by Hohenstein as “very good”. Traditional synthetics offer no comparison with these materials, which herald a new generation of fabrics.

Wear trials conducted at airlines have shown that a uniform in 100% Trevira Moisture Control guarantees the wearer an optimal feel good effect, accompanied by high standards of resilience. The fibre profile has a special dual channel system that accelerates transport of condensation molecules given off from the skin, from inner to outer layer. Moisture conducted onto the textile surface is quickly dispersed there and evaporates rapidly. In this way the inner side of the textile touching the skin stays drier, preventing an unpleasant chill effect.

Textiles containing the new fibres are ideal for use in corporate wear, business clothing or sportswear. Trevira Moisture Control may be used 100 % or in blends with wool.
