Q-CYCLE®by Fulgar

The new eco-sustainable Q-Cycle® yarn is the result of the interaction between BASF’s ChemCycling™ recycling project and Fulgar’s textile skills and experience.

INTELLIGENT MATERIALS FOR THE FUTURE OF TEXTILE 

Q-CYCLE® by Fulgar A new way of making yarns

 

The new eco-sustainable Q-Cycle® yarn is the result of the interaction between BASF’s ChemCycling™ recycling project and Fulgar’s textile skills and experienceChemCycling™ makes it possible to re-use fossil raw materials at the end of their lifecycle in their initial component forms, displaying the same properties as the virgin project without using non-renewable sources like oil. This unique process is carried out and assessed on the basis of a Mass Balance approach.

The result is Q-CYCLE®, an innovative polyamide 6,6 with post-consumer recycled content that offering the same functional and aesthetic benefits of lightness, strength and resistance but in a greener form. It can be used to produce high quality fabrics and is the ideal solution for all textile applications – it can be processed with ease like a normal polyamide, so it combines with all fibres.

 

A NEW SUSTAINBLE TECHNOLOGY

THE FUTURE OF NYLON 6.6

 

The new Q-CYCLE® yarn is the result of the interaction between BASF’s ChemCycling™ recycling project and Fulgar’s textile skills and experience.  ChemCycling™, based on pyrolysis technology, makes it possible to re-use fossil raw materials at the end of their lifecycle in their initial component forms, displaying the same properties as the virgin project without using non-renewable sources like oil.

This unique process is carried out and assessed on the basis of a Mass Balance approach.

The technology can be applied to all plastic waste that cannot be mechanically recycled, like tires at end of life. Fulgar has decided to use this new material, as it is widely present and is usually incinerated, resulting in significant CO2 emissions.

WHAT IS THE MASS BALANCE?

Mass balance is an accounting system used to manage a certain quantity of recycled content in a final product like plastic packaging when both recycled raw material and virgin material are used together in the process. Since the different particles cannot be traced or separated out, a system of counting and managing “credits” is used. The recycled content is then attributed to specific products. Mass balance ensures that the recycled material content at process input is correctly balanced with the recycled content of the products to be sold and is certified and audited by third parties.


QUALITY GUARANTEED

PROPERTIES


CARE END USES

A yarn that can be used for all textile applications and is perfectly workable like a normal polyamide, which can be combined with all fibers.

TRASPIRABILITA MOISTURE MANAGEMENT

Q-CYCLE® by Fulgar has excellent moisture management performance, this feature allows you to keep the skin cool and dry UNI EN ISO 62.

WASHING UNALTERED PROCESS

Fabrics and clothing made of Q-CYCLE® by Fulgar have the same levels of solidity as those made with virgin polyamide while maintaining the same dyeing and production processes.
