Singtex, a sustainable manufacturer of functional fabrics, has launched Biotec fabrics reusing organic materials such as coffee grounds to make coffee oil membrane and castor beans to produce bio-nylon fabrics. These bio-based materials replace more than 25 per cent petroleum consumption during production and offer a better wearing experience.  

Striving to be a pioneer in sustainable fabrics, Singtex has introduced Singtex Biotec bio-based nylon, a new innovative fabric made of EcoPaXX from DSM. EcoPaXX is a high-performance material made of 70 per cent fully renewable resource: castor bean oil. With this sustainable, high performance material, Singtex not only offers a nylon fabric that is perfectly suitable for outdoor environment, but also contributes to reduce the dependence of the textile industry on fossil fuels.

Bio-nylon fabrics are durable, lightweight, abrasion and tear resistant which is perfect for backpack and outdoor equipment fabrics. Biotec bio-based nylon has also received ISPO Textrends Award selection this year.

Biotec series will be displayed in the booth during the OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany and Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Denver, US, providing brand partners an eco-friendly alternative. (RR)
