Rhodia Fibras, a global business unit of the Solvay Group, and its business partner Fulgar, the largest European producer of polyamide fibers, are using the winter 2013 edition of ISPO Munich (February 3 to 6) for the global launch of smart and sustainable yarns Emana, Q-skin and Q-nova for sportswear users.

"These innovations improve comfort and performance during sports. They can be used to make clothing for both performance and casual sports," says Elizabeth Haidar marketing director at the global business unit Rhodia Fibras, from the Solvay Group.

Emana - Boosting Your Energy - Considered a breakthrough in polyamide for textile applications; Emana is a polyamide 6.6 yarn with bioactive minerals in its polymer matrix, which transform body heat into energy through far infrared rays.

Emana yarn promotes a unique interaction between clothing and skin, improving micro-circulation and cellular metabolism. Its benefits have been proven through severe testing protocols and clinical analysis. It´s a result of four years of intensive research.

"For sportswear, the yarn improves thermo-regulation and performance during exercises, that means better efficiency and lower muscle fatigue for the Emana yarn user during sporting activity, with no muscle damage," adds Haidar.

She adds that the technology has been patented internationally and Emana is Oeko-TEX 100 certified, meaning it can be used in making clothes for all users..

Fulgar - The Company, headquartered in Italy, is launching two more new products. The first is Q-skin, a polyamide 6.6 fiber with silver ions directly inserted inside the yarn that controls a natural bacterial balance in the skin. Q-skin takes care of the skin, offering breathability, freshness, odor control, hygiene and comfort. The product is EU-Ecolabel and Oeko-TEX standard 100 certified.

Q-nova, a new polyamide 6.6 microfiber made exclusively from recycled raw materials, is truly sustainable. The "eco" idea is based on the Continuous Melt Spinning (SCM) process, which produces a new, 99% recycled, polyamide. Thanks to its wide range of benefits - silky touch, softness, easy to dye, bright colors, comfort and elasticity - this microfiber can be used to make all kinds of clothes. The product is EU-Ecolabel, Global Recycle Standard and Oeko- Tex standard 100 certified.

"Innovation and sustainability are the key strategic priorities that had join Fulgar and Rhodia in a successful partnership," says Alan Garosi, Fulgar’s Marketing Manager.
