TENCEL SUN, solar protection fiber of botanic origin

Jul '09
At Outdoor Friedrichshafen from 16-19 July, Lenzing presented a new solar protection fiber on a TENCEL basis. The new TENCEL fiber is the outdoor fiber for discerning demands.

Lenzing, leader in the field of innovation, is presenting a new fiber
Lenzing has developed a new fiber with solar protection. As of this season TENCEL SUN will be produced for the market and presented at all of the sports trade fairs around the world. The new TENCEL SUN fiber is effective due to permanent pigment integration. The latter comes from minerals and provides a long-term protection from solar radiation. Even after washing the clothing several times, TENCEL SUN maintains its effectiveness. Tests show that a sunscreen level of up to 110 SPF can be reached.

TENCEL the multifunctional fiber with integrated solar protection
The TENCEL fiber has several positive properties. One unique function is the swelling of the fiber which enables clothing made with TENCEL SUN to scarcely lose its solar protection during outdoor sporting activities. Conventional fabrics lose more than half of their solar protection when they become damp or stretched. TENCEL can be used universally – both in the high activity and sports lifestyle sector. Moisture management, optimum skin-sensory properties and reduced bacterial growth are fused with solar protection and explain why sports clothes made of TENCEL SUN represent a superior multi-functional alternative.

Solar protection fiber of botanic origin
TENCEL SUN is made from the natural raw material wood and is, therefore, 100 % biodegradable. The fiber is therefore the perfect eco-friendly alternative to polyester fibers and conventionally finished fabrics with solar protection. TENCEL SUN clocks up points due to the permanent solar protection, which cannot be washed out, and with a manufacturing process based on botanic principles. These and many other environmental arguments make TENCEL SUN the botanic protection from the sun.
