Unifi Textiles (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. continues to expand its REPREVE brand product offering in Asia with the launch of REPREVE polyester staple fiber. The new addition is made from 100% recycled materials for use in spun yarns, including Open-End, Ring and Jet Spun.

The REPREVE family of recycled products now includes:

• Recycled Staple Polyester
• Recycled Filament Polyester
• Recycled Filament Nylon 6.6
• Recycled Performance Fibers
• Available with flame retardant, moisture wicking, stretch and color technologies

“UTSC now offers the most extensive array of recycled fibers in the global textile market,” said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi. “As we continue to localize our recycling efforts here in China, we are able to offer our customers the best value and marketing support as REPREVE becomes the leader in local sustainable textile solutions.”

To preserve the integrity of the REPREVE brand and ensure that fabrics and products made from REPREVE are traceable, transparent and certifiably sustainable, UTSC is introducing the U TRUST verification program. U TRUST is a comprehensive certification program that is designed to provide REPREVE customers with a new level of transparency. As part of the U TRUST program, the company is introducing FIBERPRINT a unique technology allowing for enhanced traceability in fabrics and products. Through Unifi's Fabric Certification process, Unifi can analyze fabrics for the FIBERPRINT signature and certify the level of REPREVE content.

“The U TRUST program protects the value that the REPREVE brand offers and helps prevent any false claims,” said Ed Wickes, president of UTSC. “And by offering the U TRUST verification program in Asia, customers can trust in the REPREVE brand name providing a credible and reliable solution for their sustainable products.”

Please visit UTSC at booth W1E18/F19 for additional information on the REPREVE family of products, the U TRUST verification program and FIBERPRINT technology. The Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Show will be held October 20 – 23, 2009 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.

Unifi, Inc. is a diversified producer and processor of multi-filament polyester and nylon textured yarns and related raw materials.
