Nylstar, one of the leading providers of Polyamide 6.6 filaments and yarns will be presenting at Techtextil this year Meryl Warm and Meryl Cool together with Litrax’s L2 Warming and L5 Cooling additives.

Coproduced with Litrax Warming Technology L2, awarded as one of the “Top 5 Fiber Innovations” at ISPO Munich 2013, Meryl Warm is estimated to create rapid thermal insulation, heat storage and re-emission. L5 additives, on the other hand are expected to produce a cold effect on fabrics and garments.

Blended with Polyamide 6.6 filaments, additional features are expected to be obtained, such as superior moisture management, odor reduction, UV protection or bacteriostatic functions. These new products have been thought for high performance sportswear, sleepwear, workwear, garments, or underwear.

Both Meryl Warm and Meryl Cool are in its development stage and Nylstar is very optimistic with the initial results. “We are thrilled with this partnership with Litrax, that reinforces our company’s commitment with innovation and further developments in nanotechnology”, says Montse Figueras, Product Development Director. “We hope that we will officially launch these new products in Intertextile Shanghai later this year”, she adds.

Nylgold, Fibers Beyond Fashion – Meryl Warm and Meryl Cool are not the first nanotechnology projects Nylstar has been involved in. Nylgold, a deluxe fiber with anti-aging properties, was for the first time presented in October 2010, in Intertextile Shanghai.

Nylgold was possible because of the close collaboration with Endor Nanotechnologies, a nanomedicine company that develops and manufactures innovative medical applications using inorganic nanoparticles conjugated to selected molecules.
