Trevira has been named winner of the “Brandenburg Innovation Award for Plastics and Chemistry 2019” by the Brandenburg Ministry of Economic Affairs for its new flame retardant, UV-resistant polyester yarn. The yarn, which is available in a variety of colours, is specially designed for outdoor applications. It was selected for the award by a jury of five, with the prize-giving ceremony taking place at the Cluster Conference Plastics and Chemistry on 21 November.

Trevira GmbH’s innovative new yarn combines multiple qualities in a way never before achieved for a polyester textile. The yarn features permanently integrated flame retardancy and UV protection, along with durable colour that is highly resistant to washing. It has immense potential for numerous applications in highly regulated outdoor sectors – for example in areas such as lounge furnishings for cruise ships.

CEO Klaus Holz said, “We are extremely pleased that our innovative development has been recognised by the jury of the Brandenburg Innovation Award. Our product demonstrates the enormous talent and potential of our development department.”

The Brandenburg Ministry for Economic Affairs describes the prize as rewarding outstanding ideas and solutions by Brandenburg start-ups and companies, along with creative solutions from cross-sector partnerships between companies and research institutions.
