Micro Modal mélange yarns in Rainbow-technology
Sep '10
Bühler is going to participate in Expofil fair. As a Micro Modal specialist Bühler will launch Micro Modal mélange yarns in Rainbow-technology. Further important new developments are two silk blends with Micro Modal and Supima cotton.

Leading spinners and fibre producers present collections for upholstery, furnishing or home textiles: raw white and dyed chenille yarns, fancy yarns, linen and blended linen, texturised and high performance yarns. Expofil Déco takes place in September 14-16, 2010 in Brussels, next to and at the same time as MoOD - Meet only Original Designs, (Decosit) and Indigo, home edition.

In the textile industry, short lead-times are a crucial competitive advantage. But to grant the re-quired flexibility with large inventories is expensive and risky. The Rainbow-technology is an inno-vative solution to produce any desired mélange shade in a very flexible and easy way. Since re-cently, Bühler applies “Rainbow” also to the production of mélange (heather) yarns made from Lenzing Micro Modal.

The Rainbow-technology is based on a treatment which fundamentally changes the dyestuff absorption of the fiber, so that it dyes in a much deeper shade. By blending Rainbow treated and untreated fibers, mélange yarns are produced which can be dyed in any de-sired color in a sim-ple process. De-pending on the pro-duction flow, the yarn, the knitted/ woven fabric or the garment can be dyed in the required color.

The advantages of Micro Modal mélange yarns in Rainbow-technology are obvious:

• drastic reduction of lead-time at all production levels in the whole supply-chain
• reduced inventory levels and risks
• no dyed-yarn leftovers that cannot be used anymore
• optimal availability of all color versions
• quick reaction on short-term color trends
• cost-effective manufacturing also for small lots
• very small minimum quantities

SwissModal Rainbow is available in the mélange levels 5%, 15% and 35% and in the count range Ne 30 – 80 (Nm 50 – 135). Thanks to Rainbow, your mélange shades can be realized quickly, simply and also in small quantities!

SwissModal Silk, SwissCotton Silk
Due to various requests from our clients, we have expanded our product range with two silk blends recently. The high class yarns SwissModal Silk and SwissCotton Silk promise highest quality in processing and provide your textiles with an elegant, lustrous sheen, a comfortable soft touch and excellent wearing properties.

The especially selected silk with minimal foreign fiber contamination, enables the production of yarns which are ideal also for critical applications as white and light color shades.

As a natural product, the first grade Kibiso mulber-ry silk provides the yarns with a valuable charac-ter. The silk we are using is cultivated in regions with favorable climatic conditions, which are cru-cial for an optimal growth of the silk worm. The result is a white, clean cocoon giving even fibers.

The positive fiber properties, as well as the good blending with Micro Modal or cotton, result in a yarn of excellent evenness which is perfectly suit-able for a smooth processing in the subsequent production steps.

Both, SwissModal Silk and SwissCotton Silk, are available as blends with 15% silk and are spun in a count range Ne 30 to Ne 80 (Nm 50 – 135).

Visit us from September 14-16, 2010 at our Expofil booth No. 5C16/5D15.
