THE LATEST addition to the family of creora® elastane yarns produced by Hyosung features antimicrobial properties that dispel unpleasant body odour. Labelled creora® Fresh, the new yarn is being launched at the July 2016 Interfilière salon in Lyon. It features exclusive technology to chemically bond the fibre to antimicrobial substances that eliminate the source of odours in a way that lasts longer than traditional finishes. Hyosung President Yong Seup Kim commented: “This technology will also enhance sportswear garment and fabric versatility by giving consumers added confidence. It is the latest addition to our creora® speciality product portfolio and a demonstration of our commitment to excellence through innovation.“ Click here for more details of the new yarn.
The new version of creora fibre complements, and raises appreciably, the effectiveness of the antimicrobial nylon fibres that have been available for some years.
