The latest sustainable innovation in new products by Fulgar is Q-NOVA® MELANGE RECYCLED, a special fibre created by blending Q-NOVA®, a nylon 6,6 fibre created using regenerated raw materials, with a polyester produced entirely from reused plastic bottles.
Q-NOVA AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Concern for the environment, recycling, a green lifestyle with zero emissions are just some of the most recent themes which have rightly captured public attention and are also close to our heart.
This is why Fulgar has put together a highly ecological product which aims to reduce CO2 emissions, consume less water and use renewable energy.
Fulgar's typical Jaspé and Pulsar effects adapt perfectly to new textile technologies, presenting the opportunity to develop multicolour fabrics through a single controlled, continuous one-step process in the dyeing stage.
Both effects enable the creation of yarns with different looks - with JESPÉ, the line is short and regular, while with PULSAR the melange feature is longer, with a more pronounced shot effect.
The two types of yarn create bi-colour effects on a perfectly uniform neutral base.
Q-NOVA® mélange boasts excellent moisture control meaning that the skin stays fresh and dry.
Fabrics and garments made with Q-NOVA® mélange yarns are easy to look after, quick to dry and do not require ironing.
Q-NOVA® mélange has been designed to give the best possible dyeing quality. Fabrics and items of clothing made from Q-NOVA® mélange are as robust as those made from virgin polyamide.
GLOBAL RECYCLED STANDARD
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled Content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The goal of the GRS is to increase use of Recycled materials in products and reduce/eliminate the harm caused by its production.
The GRS uses the ISO 14021 definition of Recycled Content, with interpretations based on the US Federal Trade Commission Green Guides; the intention is to comply with the most widely recognized and stringent definitions
