NILIT® Breeze Cooling Comfort Fiber – Confirmed by Independent Tests
Migdal Ha'emek, Israel — May 31st, 2012 — NILIT®, a global manufacturer and leader in the production of nylon 6.6, today announced that its revolutionary NILIT Breeze (patent pending) specialty yarn is now offered as a performance fiber for sportswear, hosiery, underwear, shapewear, socks, outerwear and workwear. Available in specially textured and flat nylon 6.6 yarns, NILIT Breeze fabrics have been proven to cool wearers by almost one degree Celsius in comparison to fabrics knitted with standard fibers.
NILIT Breeze ends the era of hot, uncomfortable activewear. The yarn’s cooling effect comes from a special cross-section, the insertion of an inorganic additive in the polymer itself and a unique texturing process. This combination gives fabrics very efficient ventilation capabilities and UV protective properties. As a result, garments made with NILIT Breeze keep the wearer more comfortable during and after physical exertion.
In addition to its benefits for activewear, NILIT Breeze brings shapewear and hosiery to the next level. Products made with NILIT Breeze are soft, flexible, smooth and fit the body’s contours to move with the wearer. They also provide comfort, control and elegance by keeping the wearer cool in the heat of summer.
“Always at the forefront of textile technology, we at NILIT are constantly striving to produce high-quality yarns with added consumer benefits, " commented Michal Ron Gavish, Global Marketing Manager at NILIT. "NILIT Breeze is a perfect example. With its innovative cooling effect and soft feel, NILIT Breeze is the perfect solution for today's sports garments, hosiery and shapewear."
Independent testing was performed by the Centexbel textile research center. A copy of the certificate is available upon request from NILIT.
