Regel fibre, a brand-new recycled acrylic fibre from Thai Acrylic Fibre Co., Ltd. (TAF), has received overwhelming response since its launch and is now expanding its product range in finer deniers – 1.5 and 2.5, in addition to 3.0 denier which are available now for developing fabrics and applications.

TAF, which is one of the largest manufacturers of acrylic fibres and ranked among the top five acrylic fibre producers globally, launched Regel fibre just a few weeks back. Regel is recycled acrylic fibre, made from recycling acrylic waste that was developed as a result of growing demand of sustainable fashion products from global consumers, brands and retailers.

Regel is a unique innovation, as it is one of the first successful commercialisations of acrylic fibre produced by recycling the waste, TAF says. It is manufactured with an authentic and intimate chemical recycling process which is functionally equivalent to acrylic fibre like warmth, comfort, and vibrant shades. Regel is also a GRS certified acrylic fibre, it adds.

“We have been receiving positive responses with Regel fibre and based on those feedbacks we have expanded our product offerings further in finer deniers enabling our customers to develop lightweight fabrics and applications to achieve comfort and functional support, such as innerwear, socks, base layers, and sweaters”, said Tuhin Kulshreshtha, Head of Marketing, TAF.
