Schoeller highlights for summer 2022: Knitted fabric collection
Sustainable insulation, reflective and abrasion-resistant protection and dyeable polyester
INSULATING THERMO FLASH
ThermoFlash articles from Schoeller are highly-elastic fabrics with double-face, warp-knit construction, offering optimum moisture management, as well as quick-drying properties. Nilit® Heat high-performance, environmentally-friendly yarn, utilizes a natural thermal insulation by integrating coffee charcoal (from coffee bean shells) into the nylon fiber. Sweat is distributed evenly across the interior and transported to the exterior side of the fabric. Schoeller ThermoFlash fabrics also offer protection against cold and a high level of comfort.
HIGHLY ABRASION RESISTANT PU COATING 3D
schoeller®-PUcoating 3D knitted textiles are equipped with protective foam panels, which offer a completely new technical look and a pleasant texture while also being extremely abrasion resistant. The interior guarantees reliable insulation and climate regulation. These new textiles are ideally suited as inserts in the shoulder, knee and elbow area, e.g. for mountain biking, gravel biking, commuting, as well as gloves.
The use of a special, reflective yarn in combination with a complex style of weaving or knitting ensures that schoeller®-reflex provides extensive protection in poor visibility. The same effect can also be achieved with various Schoeller knitted fabrics by using a specific reflective coating or print. When light shines on it in the dark, millions of tiny glass spheres reflect the light back toward the source (retroreflection), meaning the wearer can be seen from a distance.
DYEABLE POLYESTER KNIT FABRIC
A new dyeable warp-knitted fabric with polyester and elastane yarns is made of a modified PES which can be dyed under atmospheric conditions using conventional polyester dispersion dyes. The advantage is that no high-temperature dyeing units have to be used for dyeing. By dyeing at lower temperatures, there are significant savings in operating costs, as well as reduced CO2 emissions, resulting in a much more environmentally-friendly balance.
