Sinterama launches 100% recycled fibre 'Newlife'

Sinterama, the international leader in production of polyester yarn, in association with Polygiene, the world leader in odour control and freshness technology, have developed 100 per cent recycled fibre 'Newlife' with permanent odour control technology as opposed to the standard topical application in the yarn and fabric finishing stages. 

Sinterama’s Newlife is a unique, complete and certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns coming from 100 per cent post-consumer PET bottles sourced and processed into a polymer through a mechanical process and spun into yarn exclusively and entirely in Italy that is also 100 per cent recyclable at the garment level. This whole process constitutes Sinterama’s proprietary High Tech Conversion Model (HTCM) which has become a benchmark in mechanical recycling.

Featured in Sinterama’s Newlife range, the process offers customers 100 per cent post-consumer recycled, anti-bacterial yarns. As the yarn is treated at fibre-level it will bring considerable benefits to the customer in terms of odour control, easy care and longer lasting garments, and open opportunities for the two brands in important categories: workwear and the care-sector, with potential to develop into other categories as well.

"We are very proud of the cooperation with such an innovation leader as Polygiene. The agreement fits perfectly with the tradition and the strategy of Sinterama to develop and innovate constantly, giving our customers durable, healthy, green solutions, with additional features to delight the end user," said Guglielmo Fiocchi, Sinterama CEO.

"We’re excited to begin working with Sinterama as this will open new doors for us in categories where we see large growth potential. The care sector where we first started, as well as the corporate/workwear industry will both benefit as Polygiene treated fabrics will be capable of withstanding industrial level laundering. In addition, the shorter lead-times with the ability of pre-treated fabrics to be stored and colored is an exceptional market advantage to an even wider audience," Christian von Uthmann, Polygiene CEO said.

Sinterama sees the application appealing to a number of sectors. Matteo Soppera, head of product marketing at Sinterama said, "Marrying together Polygiene technology and Sinterama’s experience in recycled, high-tech polyester filament yarn, is a new concept for the textile market and will offer our customers improved performance."
