For 50 years Lenzing Modal fibers and MicroModal branded fibers have been a permanent feature in international collections of fashion industry. They are particularly successful with figure-hugging products such as day and night wear and home wear. Baby and children’s clothing could be a future market for Lenzing Modal fibers.
These fibers are produced using beech wood and are bio-degradable. Lenzing has an eco-friendly production site with high recovery rates of process ingredients and low air emissions. The advantages of adopting the Modal production process are clear. Customers benefit from the very good processability which makes it easier to produce high quality yarns. Different climatic zones, which can lead to problems with processing, play a less important role. Even different spinning technologies play a lesser role when processing the new Lenzing modal fibers. Moreover higher production efficiency could be reached in the spinning mill.
Lenzing is aiming for specialty fibers to make up 50 per cent share of their turnovers by 2020. Lenzing continues to be one of the technological leaders in the field of Modal production even after 50 years. The company is working continuously on improvements to its processes and has set further benchmark in Modal production.
