Lenzing shows cellulose fiber Tencel at A+A trade show

At the A+A 2013, the world’s greatest trade show for workwear in Düsseldorf, Lenzing is presenting the cellulose fiber TENCEL for applications in industrial laundry.

Workwear is generally dominated by polyester and cotton fibers. Workwear options have been extended with the TENCEL fiber.

TENCEL guarantees innovation and greater sustainability in this segment. As a result of the fiber’s properties, such as the highest strength profile, optimum moisture absorption, reduced bacterial growth and the very best skin-sensory properties, the TENCEL fiber has made a name for itself in workwear. And now a new dimension can be added to this: TENCEL workwear in industrial laundry.

Workwear demands that materials be durable. TENCEL satisfies this criterion with its high fiber strength. The fiber is robust and is thus the best choice for applications in industrial laundry when it comes to man-made cellulosics.

Industrial laundry tried and tested

Tests show that a material blend of TENCEL/polyester is ideal for industrial laundry. This blend guarantees optimum values in use and a professional appearance even after numerous laundry cycles. TENCEL workwear has an enormous longevity. The extremely good color fastness is striking compared to standard goods, as measurements show.

The drying speed is another advantage. Industrial tests show that TENCEL/polyester blended fabrics dry up to 25% faster compared to standard fabrics. Energy is saved due to the shorter drying time and processing costs are reduced.

Comfort is essential for the acceptance of workwear by the wearers. Rental service companies tend to use fabrics with a high share of polyester. But the higher the share of synthetic fibers, the more comfort is lost in a garment.

With TENCEL it is possible to develop workwear which is suitable for industrial laundry and also satisfies the wearer’s demand for comfort. With a blend of 35% TENCEL with polyester, the wearing comfort, in particular the moisture absorption, can be doubled compared to standard fabrics.
