The polyester fabric Biophyl is a combination of performance and sustainability. The fibres and yarns are made with a special polyester polymer, PTT. The petrol based glycol has been replaced with Bio-PDO that is made of corn sucrose. The resource is renewable and therefore the dependability on petro-chemicals, the classical raw material for polyester, is reduced.
Both flat and textured yarns bring a new level of softness to the fabric. Yarns of this polymer are softer then nylon at the same denier because less effort is required to bend the fibres. Because of its characteristics it can be used for intimate apparel, swimwear, active wear, casual wear and fashion wear.
