Nilit presents moisture management fibre
Aug '08
Nilit, leading global manufacturer of nylon 6.6 raw materials for Textile and Plastics applications, has introduced Nilit Aquarius, a unique high performance yarn engineered to wick away moisture and designed to keep the wearer feeling dry and comfortable.

The Aquarius fibre transport moisture away from the skin through the garment and out towards the air. The fibres are extremely well suited for making active wear and sportswear.

Main features of this fibre are that its hydrophilic attributes are intrinsic in the fibre and will not wear off even after repeated washings! A triple T cross-section of the filaments increases the surface area for improved moisture management. The special cross-section creates 'micro-channels' in the fiber which actually carry moisture away from the body.

Generally fibres absorb the moisture making garments wet, heavy and very uncomfortable to wear. However, the invention of this fibre is expected to bring revolution in the sportswear and active wear segment.
