Xlance Fibre launches 'Green' innovative fabric
Nov '13
Carvico relaunches on the market one of the most innovative fabrics ever: XLAnce.

The company has this time chosen to go the extra mile developing a “green” version of this classic, the brand new Xlance Eco which boasts both the extraordinary XLA elastomeric fiber and a 100% polyamide from post-consumer materials:


XLAnce Fibre Italia, a 100% Made in Italy business, was established in 2011 as a result of the joint venture between Carvico S.p.A. and Aquafil – leader in the production of man-made fibers – and was created with the aim to finalize the purchase of a project of development of the innovative XLA elastomeric fiber originally designed by Dow Chemical Company in the US.

Such co-operation therefore ensured the production of this exceptional fiber would carry on. We are talking about a stretch fiber which is completely chlorine-proof and can transfer to fabrics its extreme recovery power. In addition to this XLA perfectly blends with the most innovative fibers currently available on the market, even those requiring special treatments and processing, such as polypropylene.

XLAnce Eco, the ideal fabric for those who love water sports thanks to its capability to resist to the most extreme stresses, including those linked to competition challenges, is produced starting from the aforesaid revolutionary raw material. Chlorine-proof – it maintains its stretch even after 240 hours into pool water which is very rich of chlorine -, extremely sweat, sun creams and oils and UV resistant, this fabric is long-lasting thanks to the low temperature applied during the finishing process (lower than those applied to standard fabrics).

Compared to its predecessor, XLAnce Eco, brings about a great added value, its “green” soul which lies into its being made of a 100% recycled polyamide from post-consumer materials and products which have got to the end of their useful life – such as discarded fishing nets, tulle, carpet fluff …- and are saved from the landfill, recycled, reprocessed and turned into a new polymer and then into a new yarn.

Compact, comfortable and soft, XLAnce Eco is bound to beat the competitors and to become a leader for competition swimwear and beachwear. Garments made with the new fabric by Carvico perfectly fit your body, shaping your silhouette so to allow athletes to feel totally free when competing. Additionally, it is fast-drying and breathable. XLAnce Eco is a timeless fabric, dedicated to the most demanding athletes who love being fashionable but wouldn’t compromise on quality, reliability and duration over time.
