Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, October 20, 2008
Polyester and nylon yarn manufacturer Unifi will introduce Repreve nylon 6,6 to the Chinese market at Intertextile Shanghai, Oct. 20-23.
Like Repreve polyester, Repreve nylon is a first-quality yarn made from 100% recycled materials; its production reduces energy consumption and conserves petroleum-based resources, the company said.
Unifi's UTSC subsidiary will show at booth W1E02 in the New Int'l Expo Centre.
A Greensboro, N.C.-based company, Unifi established UTSC in China to sell into local manufacturing markets. Roger Berrier, evp, Unifi, said the Repreve nylon introduction "will further allow us to consistently supply high quality 100% recycled products wherever our customers choose to do business."
