Lenzing Modal fibres now in color
Sep '12
Lenzing is proud to present the new COLOR and BLACK Modal fibers. The new developments are being presented for the first time at the international yarn and fabric trade show - Expofil, Paris, FR.

Lenzing Modal is now available in special colors including black. The advantage of the spun-dyed fiber is its eco-friendliness: dyeing is no longer necessary because the color pigments are embedded directly in the fiber matrix. Resources, such as water and energy, are spared when producing fabrics. Tests prove that processing Lenzing Modal COLOR requires up to 80% less energy and saves up to 75% of water (in jet dyeing) in comparison to standard fibers. 

The color black harbors enormous potential for applications in lingerie and socks. 
Particularly in these applications, Lenzing Modal COLOR in black boasts interesting properties such as color and abrasion fastness. Textiles of Lenzing Modal COLOR are generally extremely durable. The color stays put. No “bleeding”, as it is known, occurs. Even after repeated washing, clothing of Lenzing Modal COLOR remains as colorful as on the first day. Moreover, a range of other design ideas can be realized with the other colors–from blends to color innovations such as cross-dyed products. 
Lenzing Modal COLOR is produced in an eco-friendly process using edelweiss technology. The fiber is produced in Austria from beechwood. It is carbon neutral and up to 95% of processing chemicals are recovered during production. For this reason Lenzing Modal has been newly positioned and the slogan “Makes the World a Softer Place” has been changed to “Carbon Neutral Softness with Edelweiss Technology”. “We wanted to produce Lenzing Modal as an eco-friendly cellulose fiber and point out that particularly this fiber produced in Austria is produced to the best of our knowledge and belief and basically differs from other Modal fibers”, Dieter Eichinger, Vice President Lenzing Business Unit Textile, explains.
