Nilit has introduced the Sensil WaterCare as part of the company’s Planet Promise textile sustainability commitment. Sensil WaterCare is pre-dyed so fabric and apparel makers can save 100 per cent of the water, energy, and chemicals involved in the traditional coloration process. Nilit is a producer of premium Nylon 6.6 fashion and performance fibres.

The traditional textile dyeing wet process is a water-intensive operation that often relies on century-old technology that guzzles water and energy. Approximately 20 per cent of global industrial water pollution, can be attributed to textile dyeing and treatment. New Sensil WaterCare offers water-conscious brands, retailers, and consumers a more sustainable choice to conserve precious resources and reduce water pollution, all while enjoying apparel that is as richly beautiful as it is responsible. Plus, Sensil WaterCare significantly reduces processing time, water treatment costs, and the risk of pollution to rivers, lakes, and oceans, according to Nilit.

New Sensil WaterCare is spun-dyed. Environmentally responsible pigments such as charcoal and coffee bean shells, among others, offer sustainable coloration that reflects the natural world. Color is embedded in the yarn as it is produced resulting in exquisite, uniform colour depth and luster that won’t wash out, even at high temperatures. Garments resist fading so they last longer and dyes do not wash out in the laundry.

“Water is the foundation of life and protecting it is a corporate mandate we take very seriously at Nilit. Our R&D efforts are focused on developing new Sensil products like WaterCare that support the industry’s sustainability goals and respond to growing consumer demands for textiles and apparel that are more responsibly made,” Ilan Melamed, Nilit general manager said.

“From the perspective of NILIT’s Total Product Sustainability approach, Sensil WaterCare can make a significant impact when its many advantages are considered. Sensil WaterCare can shorten the product development cycle, improve productivity, and reduce the burden of sampling and returns. These are tangible efficiency gains for the textile industry and also substantial benefits for the planet and people,” Bernardo Staiano, Nilit CTO said.

Sensil’s family of premium Nylon products addresses resource conservation, pollution elimination, biodegradability, and recycled inputs to help advance textile industry sustainability. Nilit collaborates with key partners to improve sustainability throughout the global value chain and educate consumers about responsible choices.
