Eastman Chemical has launched Avra performance fibres, the next generation of polyester fibres, enabled by a proprietary spinning technology for the performance apparel market.

“The performance benefits imparted by Avra include exceptional moisture management and a chemical-free 'cool to the touch' sensation,” the company said.

According to Eastman, fabrics made with Avra dry quickly or up to 50 per cent faster than conventional polyester fabrics, helping wearers stay cooler during demanding physical activities.

“In addition, the highly flexible Avra fibre enables further enhance wearer comfort through the superior drape and remarkable softness they provide,” the US based fibre developer added.

Avra fibres are made in the US in collaboration with Unifi; a collaboration which Eastman feels will help provide the industry with the next level of performance-enhancing fibres. (AR)
