Towels from Freudenberg's Evolon offer best properties
Oct '15
A division of Freudenberg Group, Freudenberg Performance Materials said; sports towels made from Evolon's microfilament fabric offers the best correlation of performance with compact design.

“Thanks to patented microfilament technology, Evolon combines excellent mechanical properties with the benefits of textiles, such as comfort, softness and drapability,” it stated in a press release.

“Evolon can absorb four times its own weight in water, providing users with excellent wiping performance and once wet, Evolon towels will dry 2 to 3 times more quickly than traditional towels,” the company added.

With a weight of 100 gms per sq. metre and the exceptional density of the microfilaments, towels made from Evolon are ultra-light and take up five times less space than terry cloth towels.

“This is an undeniable advantage for sportspeople, campers, hikers and other travelers,” Freudenberg Performance Materials observed.

In addition to its exceptional performance, Evolon can be dyed or printed using continuous or digital printing methods, increasing the possibilities for extending the range and for personalisation.

“The towels can be produced based on original Evolon with its flat structure or brand new Evolon 3D for an even greater textile look and feel,” the German company informed.

Significant savings in water and energy can be achieved when washing Evolon towels as up to 5 times more Evolon towels can be washed in one maintenance cycle than towels traditionally used by fitness clubs or hoteliers.

Evolon fabrics are certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Product Class I and are manufactured in Europe in accordance with ISO 14001 certification for respecting the environment.

The fabrics also carry ISO 50001 for its continuous program to reduce energy consumption and OHSAS 18001 for the health and safety of employees.
