NILIT Aquarius now in TAO high perfomance winter underwear
Feb '09
Nilit announced that its high-performance moisture management Aquarius fiber will now be used in winter underwear from TAO Technical-Wear, a leading German sportswear manufacturer.

Nilit's Aquarius represents a significant advancement in nylon 6.6 design that provides moisture management performance. The yarn's unique shape is actually designed to accelerate the removal of moisture away the body.

Oded Breier, Nilit's Marketing and Sales Manager, explains: “Our Aquarius yarn represents a significant advancement in nylon 6.6. Integrating our moisture management yarn into TAO's ARIDUS underwear makes high-performing apparel from the inside out.”

In December, TAO sales representatives learned about the polymer and its properties from Alon Weiser, Nilit's Research Development and Technical Service Manager.

“Aquarius has three tiers of moisture management performance,” Weiser explains. “An effective moisture management additive that is permanently embedded throughout the fiber. The fiber's special cross-section maximizes the wicking surface area, and the fiber's “micro-channels” transport moisture away from the body.” These properties make Aquarius an extremely effective moisture management system for seamless sportswear, underwear and activewear.

Because the moisture management “mechanism” is built into the polymer, there is no need for chemical finishes. Nilit Aquarius delivers a luxurious hand that is important in beautiful, vibrant garments.

Thilo de Ponte, Export Sales Manager TAO Technical Wear explains: “Our high-performing winter underwear for active sports will be a premium product for 2009-2010. One advantage is the fiber, Nilit Aquarius, promises an ideal moisture management, knitted seamless. The other advantage is the zone function system: several function zones for different requirements.”

The underwear will be part of TAO's 2009-2010 collection. It will be introduced in Europe at the TCM in Zürich in February 2009. Nilit's Aquarius has proved to be an exciting development in high-performance fibers for major sports brands.

Nilit Ltd produces nylon 6.6 and microfiber yarns in a broad selection of dtex and filament counts, luster levels, and types of cross-sections. Nilit's high-quality yarns are used for both knitwear, wovenwear and spandex covering applications for the production of fashionable and functional legwear, bodywear, intimate apparel, and activewear. Nilit Ltd. is a privately owned company with headquarters in Israel. It works closely with its international customer base from offices in Italy, the United States, Germany, Spain, France, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and now in Suzhou, China.

TAO Technical-Wear is a division of Joy Sportswear GmbH since 1997. Joy Sportswear produces sports fashion of maximum quality with great success for more than 30 years.
