'intelligent' polyamide yarn for sportswear industry

Aug '08
Rhodia has launched a new polyamide 6.6 based "intelligent" yarn under the brand name Emana. This yarn incorporates a patented additive which gives thermoregulation properties and improves blood micro-circulation, when embedded in a sportswear or underwear. Emana is an exclusive technology developed in Rhodia's R&D laboratories in Brazil.

Scientific studies conducted by the independent Brazilian lab Kosmoscience* demonstrate that during exercise sportswear manufactured with Emana improves body thermo-regulation by
41 percent compared to other products and reduces the accumulation of lactic acid, which leads to muscular fatigue, by 35 percent. The same studies also indicate enhanced comfort and gains in signs of cellulite reduction, with an eight percent increase in skin elasticity.

The "intelligent" properties of this yarn do not deteriorate after repeated washing. Benefiting from all the key characteristics of polyamide, such as soft touch, easy care, resistance and elasticity, Emana brings Rhodia's clients in the sportswear, lingerie and underwear markets extraordinary flexibility in terms of colour and design. It has been certified class I under the OEKO-TEX Standard 100, and therefore assessed that no harmful substances are present in the product.

Present in Brazil for 90 years, Rhodia generates 17 percent of its sales in Latin America and continues to expand in this fast growing region.
