Unifi Debuts Sorbtek For Moisture Management

Sorbtek, a performance yarn that uses a new catch, move and release system for moisture management, has been developed by Unifi Inc., Greensboro, N.C. Sorbteks advanced formula integrates itself into the molecular structure of the yarn, according to Lee Gordon, senior vice president, product development. The yarns moisture-management properties are permanent, while its physical properties are identical to regular textured yarn and require no changes or additional processing beyond normal manufacturing operations. Test results show that Sorbtek immediately absorbs moisture and moves it away from its source faster and farther than the leading moisture transport yarn. The yarn is available as continuous filament 70- to 150-denier polyester or nylon. It is suitable as warp or filling in woven applications and in seamless, circular and warp-knitted applications.
