FiberVisions Heralds CoolVisions™ Developments

FiberVisions Corp., with production facilities located in Covington, Ga., has announced plans to expand its offering of CoolVisions™ dyeable polypropylene staple fiber for ring- and air-jet-spun apparel applications. The company currently is developing finer-denier staple and filament products, and performance enhancements such as antimicrobial properties.

According to the company, CoolVisions offers all the inherent attributes of traditional polypropylene fibers — light weight, comfort, moisture management, durability, thermal insulation and stain resistance — with the addition of its dyeability using disperse dyes and a soft hand owing to its unique design. The company also reports the fiber processes similarly to current pigmented polypropylene, enabling efficient yarn spinning, knitting and weaving using current textile equipment.

To augment its production in Covington, FiberVisions also has begun CoolVisions manufacturing operations in Asia.
