Nilit to highlight new ATS technology at Performance Days

Israel headquartered polyamide 6.6 producer Nilit Fibers will present innovative nylon 6.6 yarns, developed with the company’s new ATS technology, at the Performance Days functional fabric fair at the MTC World of Fashion in Munich, next month.

Nilit’s ATS (Air Textured Soft) special air jet texturing technology infuses nylon 6.6 yarns with light, airy softness, the company reports. According to the manufacturer, Nilit ATS fashion yarns are said to be softer than cotton, dry faster and be more durable with longer-lasting suppleness.

In addition to fashion yarns, Nilit’s ATS technology has also been used to add extra softness and strength into many of Nilit’s well-known performance yarns, including Nilit Heat with natural thermal insulation and Nilit Breeze with cooling plus UV protection.

Specialty yarns

“Our Nilit ATS technology creates nylon yarns that are beautiful, touchable, and resilient,” commented Pierluigi Berardi, Nilit’s Global Marketing Director. “With a full range of yarn counts, colours, effects, and performance enhancements, designers of legwear, intimates, activewear, and ready to wear apparel will find everything to inspire incredible products.”

In addition to the new Nilit ATS nylon yarns, other specialty yarns will be on display at the company’s booth. Nilit Innergy, the innovative polyamide 6.6 microfibre with built in FIR (far infrared radiation), is designed to offer super soft comfort while it gently reflects the wearer’s own body heat to energize from within and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
