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.
