LITRAX’ Warming Technology L2 Wins ISPO „TOP 5 FIBER INNOVATIONS“ Award.

Nanotechnology maker LITRAX announces today that its L2 fiber & filament technology has been nominated as a WINNER at ISPO 2013 in Munich to be among the „TOP 5 FIBRES INNOVATION“ for the fall/winter season 2014/15. L2 technology creates enhanced and rapid thermal insulation, heat storage and reemission. It further enhances blood circulation, thus stimulating cellular metabolism with its associated beneficial health effects. The technology, used both in filaments, fibers and layers, is designed for high performance sportswear, sleepwear, workwear, garments or underwear. Garments made with L2 THERMO have insulation properties and rapid warming from an increase of +5°C to over an amazing +22°Celsius, depending on the percentage of L2 master batches used in virgin materials.

Lenzing Modal – A Man´s Best Friend…

We could point out a lot of fantastic characteristics of Lenzing Modal – and we are keen to do so. But there is one we at Lenzing did not think of yet: what Lenzing Modal can do for men in combination with the design of underwear-designer Obviously. As they say on their webpage with regard to their designed underwear made of Lenzing Modal: “Obviously’s unique design is non-restrictive of testicle movement and significantly reduces the heat build-up of regular underwear which has been linked to reduced sperm count, the reduced swimming ability of sperm, and a decrease in the DNA quality of sperm. So why risk it?“ What more can we add.

Lenzing FR® Color – Protection and Color United to Perfection

The flame and heat protection fiber Lenzing FR® is also available as a spinneret-dyed variant.

The flameproof finish is permanently fixed in the fiber and offers protection from heat in a range of different work areas. A dyestuff has now been successfully integrated into the fiber. With Lenzing FR® Color, the color stays where it should– in the textile. No bleeding out of the fiber takes place. The color stays in the fabric and does not dye the wash bath as is the case with conventional textiles. Dye fastness is an advantage for the textile production chain as a whole and the wearer also benefits. Lenzing FR® Color offers protection and color in one.
