Regitex Launches OptiSpun™ Technology

Canada-based Regitex — a manufacturer of custom-made ring-spun and open-end yarns for industrial, apparel, high-performance and home-furnishing applications — has developed OptiSpun™ technology to improve yarn structure, providing increased strength and evenness and reduced hairiness.

According to the company, the technology improves yarn strength by maximizing utilization of each fiber in the yarn, thereby improving yarn characteristics over those of conventional short-staple ring-spun yarns. OptiSpun short-staple yarns also exhibit the greatest reduction in hairiness. Regitex notes that these two improvements could make it possible for knitters and weavers to use short-staple yarns in place of long-staple yarns.
