DOMOTEX 2016 HANNOVER

This year’s booth at Domotex 2016 well reflects Aquafil’s strategy based on innovations for the high-end residential sector, weaving sector and new reprocessing technologies.

Always committed to developing new products while taking real measures to protect the environment, Aquafil has dedicated a significant part of its Domotex booth to the launch of the ECONYL® StayClean yarn.

It is an innovative sustainable fiber with intrinsic stain-resistant properties, made from 100% regenerated nylon.

Produced with a modified polymer, a special cross section and a state-of-the-art finishing technology, this solution dyed Nylon 6 fiber assures maximum cleanability and wear and tear resistance.

ECONYL ® StayClean is available in two versions,  HOME and OFFICE.

Another big focus of this year’s stand is the weaving sector, where Aquafil has identified a significant potential and aims to expand its market share. Visitors at Domotex had the opportunity to appreciate top design woven carpet laying at the booth floor produced by Carpet Concept and Vorwerk.

Aquafil’s innovation goals in 2016 will involve also this year the high-end residential sector, a growing industry with very specific needs. The booth hosts a variety of soft and shiny yarn samples, allowing a better understanding of the product quality.

At the booth there will be the possibility to admire the Glam2 collection, which was installed on part of the stand. With consumer demands that are increasingly sensitive to the ‘look and feel’ of their home décor items, Aquafil developed a new technology in order to produce a yarn that looks like a natural fiber, featuring 2DPF and a great softness with unsurpassed dyeing uniformity.

Further, new interesting developments were exhibited:

– thick&soft loop-pile yarns

– new looks and optics
