Freudenberg displayed the comfortemp Lyocell padding at ISPO trade fair, in hall 2, booth 4.04. The leading trade fair for sports professionals was held from January 26-29, 2020, in Munich, Germany. The Lyocell padding the first fully biodegradable padding made from sustainably produced cellulose fibre that degrades in soil within just under 60 days.

The degradation of polyester, which is contained in 60 per cent of all garments, takes an average of 500 years. In addition to reduced consumption, more recycling and increasing the quality of garments to ensure that they can be worn for longer, innovative ecological solutions are urgently needed for the end of the garment life cycle. Freudenberg is a pioneer in this field and is now launching comfortemp Lyocell padding, the world’s first 100 per cent biodegradable padding. It is completely biodegradable within 60 days without polluting the soil, according to Freudenberg.

The padding is based on Lyocell, which is manufactured by fibre producer, Lenzing. Lyocell is a cellulose produced from natural raw materials in an environmentally friendly production process using eucalyptus wood from sustainable forests. The solvent used to obtain the fibres is almost completely reused in the production cycle, which is a clear advantage over other cellulose fibres such as viscose. The EU has presented the process with the European Award for the Environment.

The fine fibres created from the natural raw material and their innovative processing enable comfortemp Lyocell padding to be as light as a feather and as efficient as synthetic paddings. The thermal insulation provides warmth and is both soft and highly breathable. Thanks to its excellent moisture management, the padding absorbs body moisture up to 45 per cent and thus minimises perspiration. The thermal insulation is also water-repellent, dries quickly, is antistatic and conforms to the Oeko-Tex 100 standard. Consequently, comfortemp Lyocell padding meets the high demands placed on clothing for sports and outdoor use.

The cohesive padding prevents fibre migration through the outer fabric and is offered by the meter. This means less time and cost for the industry and no cold bridges at the seams for the end consumer.
