Nylgold, new anti-oxidant fiber combines luxury & beauty

Nylgold – a new innovative luxury fibre featuring 24-carat gold nanostructure – was launched at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics by Nylstar, specialists in polyamide 6.6 fibres and yarns for more than 80 years.

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics was held in October at Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Shanghai, China.

Nylstar said that Nylgold offers continuous and effective care of the skin, and that it represents a new era in textiles – “the era of dermawear.”

The key to Nylgold is its integration of the NYG nanosystem, a new breakthrough in nanotechnology with revolutionary biological properties. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) molecules are bound to 24-carat gold nanoparticles to generate the NYG nanosystem, with HA molecules directly mounted on the surface of a gold nanoparticle, forming a novel nano-structure composed by a gold core and a HA shell. Each gold nanoparticle carries thousands of HA molecules. Nylgold is created when the NYG nanomaterial is integrated in nylon fibres using a new process developed by Nlystar. The company has said that Nylgold's use of nanoparticles offers anti-oxidant, moisturising and anti-ageing benefits for products using the new fibre.

Nylstar is focusing Nylgold primarily on the underwear market, but the fibre can also be used in active wear, T-shirts, stockings, socks, therapeutical wear, wellness wear and shapewear.

Raul Gonzalez, head of marketing and international strategic development at Nylstar, said: “Nylgold is for the very top end of the market – it represents a combination of luxury, beauty, and anti-ageing through its protection of the skin. The fibre has been designed for use by highend brands which have special design capabilities.”

Nylstar SA was founded in 1923 and has been operating in the international textile fibre market for more than 80 years. Nylstar currently has the widest range of polyamide 6.6 products in the world.

Nylstar produces standard and custom-made polyamide 6.6 yarns as well as technical yarns created through a nanotechnology process and used in manufacturing advanced textile products.
