Polyester filament yarns made from recycled plastic bottles

October 1st, 2012 / By: / Uncategorized

Newlife™ is a complete and certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns coming 100 percent from recycled plastic bottles, processed into a polymer through a mechanical (not chemical) process and spun into yarn. The flexible Newlife platform allows for a vast number of applications and performances with levels of quality at least equal to virgin polyester equivalents, but with considerable resource and cost savings for the environment. Applications for Newlife include fashion, sportswear, underwear, technical clothing, workwear, medical garments, outdoor clothes, furnishings and accident prevention textiles. Thirty 1.5 liter bottles make one kilo of Newlife yarn.
