PHP Fibers with focus on hybrid rovings und yarns based on bio-polymer at Techtextil
In order to reduce CO2 emissions for textile products, the use of bio-based raw fibers is appropriate. For this purpose, PHP Fibers offers two technical yarn types based on renewable resources:
Diolen® 150BT is the first technical polyester yarn with PLA polymers which are also biodegradable in composting facilities. Thanks to its greater strength compared to textile yarns, it is particularly suitable for use in agricultural textiles requiring limited durability. Enka® Nylon BIO is a bio-based technical polyamide yarn which should be considered as an equivalent alternative to petroleum-based yarns, such as Polyamide 6 or 6.6. It has comparably good yarn and polymer properties and additionally features lower moisture absorption and polymer density.
PHP Fibers will be represented at Techtextil 2017 for the first time together with sister companies from the parent company Indorama Ventures.
