Since its introduction in 1935, nylon and polyamide fibres have been a godsend to knitting and crocheting. Because adding nylon or polyamides to natural fibres makes the yarn stronger and more durable, so many sock yarns on the market now do.
Numerous novelty yarns that call for strength, flexibility, and sheen benefit greatly from the use of nylon.
Outstanding tensile strength and abrasion resistance, high elasticity, as well as a higher specific heat capacity when compared to other materials, are all crucial characteristics of polyamide yarn for industrial applications.
Because of the variety of options available, including filament fineness, sheen, and form, as well as their high stretch and recovery, polyamide yarns are preferred.
This relies on knitting tubular materials without seams and can use a variety of knit stitches while combining pre-shaped structures, so reducing costs associated with the alternative “cut and sew” manufacturing process, such as labour, waste, fabric stocks, and energy.
Global polyamide yarn market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The first partially bio-based polyamide textile yarn created by Solvay is being released on a global scale. It is a polyamide 5.6, wholly made at the company’s textile manufacturing facility in Brazil.
The creation of Bio Amni is in line with the expanding global trend toward more sustainable textiles, particularly those made of bio-based ingredients. For two years, the product was developed by the research and innovation teams at Solvay.
From the source to the end users of textiles, solutions and products must give value to the entire consumer chain and be less harmful to the environment.
Solvay’s Bio Amni is a component of an evolving portfolio designed to give customers access to the most cutting-edge products available.
Resources, production methods, and disposal are the three key environmental and sustainability concerns that the textile industry is currently facing.
At its industrial facility in Brazil, Solvay already uses sustainable alternatives in the production process, including cleaner energy sources, closed water circuits, zero effluent emissions, and more biodegradable goods to promote more sustainable disposal.
The first partially bio-based textile yarn, Bio Amni, is now available from Solvay, further diversifying its wide range of eco-friendly goods.
