The LYCRA Company, a global leader in developing innovative and sustainable fibre and technology solutions for the personal care and apparel industries, is exhibiting its newest fibre innovations for hygiene and personal care products at the ongoing Index23, the world’s leading nonwovens exhibition, which is taking place at Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland.
The LYCRA Company representatives are available at stand number 2151 at Index23.
At the trade show, The LYCRA Company is commercially launching LYCRA EnviroFit fibre, one of the many sustainable fibres that the company has developed as part of its Planet Agenda sustainability platform. With its unique chemistry, LYCRA EnviroFit fibre utilises thinner yarns, reducing the amount of fibre per article and helping conserve resources without compromising product performance.
“We are thrilled to introduce LYCRA EnviroFit fibre, which reduces fibre weight while maintaining the overall quality and performance that personal care products require,” said Scott Blackadar, president, personal care at The LYCRA Company. “Having less mass means fewer resources and less energy are consumed during diaper production. This fibre will appeal to manufacturers who want to significantly reduce their product’s environmental impact and help improve its carbon footprint.”
In addition to continuously improving its range of fibres for personal care products, The LYCRA Company also focuses on providing total solutions for the challenges its customers face. The company is offering two unique delivery technologies aimed at improving the spandex unwinding process and improving diaper line productivity that will also be promoted at the show.
The LYCRA Company is showcasing the Trio Loop Technology at Index23, the latest yarn control system from BTSR International. Trio Loop Technology, in combination with MATRIXCUBE tension controlled plug-and-play unwinding systems, improves yarn tension control and adds more troubleshooting options to further improve diaper line productivity.
The LYCRA Company is also the exclusive global distributor of the new and improved Knotter Type 093E for diaper production. This breakthrough innovation by Mesdan offers manufacturers greater efficiency and reliability by eliminating manual knot tying and reducing machine stops.
“By offering these delivery technologies, we are demonstrating that we are a trusted and highly valued solution provider in the industry,” said Werner Hopstaken, global director, personal care at The LYCRA Company. “We are excited to offer our personal care customers these innovative products by BTSR and Mesdan and encourage them to contact us to learn more.”
