The two fibers complement each other to perfection: COOLMAX® stands for High-tech fabrics made of polyester fibers from Advansa which remove moisture at great speed. TENCEL® stands for naturalness and the highest possible moisture absorbency. The combination of the highest possible moisture absorption capacity (TENCEL®) and the rapid removal of moisture (COOLMAX®) are the concept for the success of textiles of these two fibers. Together, TENCEL® and COOLMAX® guarantee a drier skin surface when performing sports.
More service for customers of Lenzing

Lenzing hosted a joint presentation with representatives of the European Eco-label at the latest textile fairs in Paris, Texworld, the fabric fair and at Expofil, the yarn fair.
TENCEL® - a cellulose fiber with excellent temperature balance regulates the micro-climate in Activewear
With its moisture and temperature regulation properties, TENCEL® acts like a natural Phase Change Material (PCM) that can either cool or warm depending on the prevailing conditions. This ability to act as a thermal buffer is due to the natural water content of the cellulose fiber rather than any added substances. It is quite simple – the higher the moisture level of the fiber, the higher its capacity to regulate temperature.
To give direct customers and the downstream textile chain, namely the fabric producers, garment makers, brands and retailers the assurance that they are using the genuine Lenzing Modal®, Lenzing built up an extensive branding program. This aims to guarantee that the Lenzing Modal® brand continues to stand for quality and should confirm to consumers that when Lenzing Modal® is on a label, Lenzing Modal® is in the product.

Nanofibrils are the secret

The Lenzing fibers TENCEL® and Lenzing Modal® are well-established in the Taiwanese market. The softest fiber of the world - Lenzing Modal® - can be found in knitted fabrics for lingerie and light-weight tops. TENCEL® features prominently in denim and woven fabrics. One new development is that TENCEL® is now being applied as an ideal functional fiber in numerous sportswear textiles. Fabrics can be endowed with functional properties thanks to a unique nanofibril technology.
Since the 1970’s exports of textiles have increased 270 times in India. Reputed brands such as Gap, Banana Republic, Nike, Liz Clairborne and many more, have already established sourcing offices in India and use the traditional Indian textile market to produce their goods. “Thus it makes sense that Lenzing should follow suit and do the same as its customers – since many of the brand manufacturers are already indirectly our customers - whilst at the same time ensuring the optimum supply of the textile chain with fibres to Indian producers”, Thomas Fahnemann argues. Another reason why it might be a good idea to look favourably on an Indian base is the forecasted two-digit economic growth for India, the constant growth in the population and the constant increase in family incomes. This development will raise the future textile consumption per capita, and thus the consumption of fibers within India, transforming the latter into an interesting sales market for fibers from Lenzing.
