Nanofeel® Antimicrobial - Developed by Radici and exclusively distributed in North America by ICF Mercantile, LLC, this bacteriostatic polyester yarn was developed using nanotechnology. The fiber is impregnated with silver ions, rather than being deposited on the surface as in traditional bacteriostatic yarns. Combining nanoparticle technology with solution dyeing results in this robust final product that outperforms yarns manufactured using traditional topical finishing techniques. Nanofeel® is marketed towards sportswear, technical wear, intimate apparel, hosiery, swimwear, and home furnishings.
  NanoGLIDE™ - Developed by Next Fiber Technology, NanoGLIDE is a Permanent PTFE Patented Technology for performance apparel and socks that will not wash or wear out, and will retain all other features such as stretch. The fiber’s natural color is white with denier ranges from 60-1200. NanoGLIDE is raising the bar by taking moisture management, skin protection, abrasion, and comfort into high energy levels of: 1) extreme moisture wicking, 2) enhanced durability, 3) ultra-fast drying, 4) reduced friction and 5) extreme abrasion resistance. NanoGLIDE's extreme performance and comfort is gentle on the skin, yet achieve maximum protection. The NanoGLIDE Technology can be used on both knit and woven fabrics.
  Nega Stat® - Developed by William Barnet & Son, LLC, Nega-Stat® P190 is a unique bi-component core conducting yarn designed for product and end-uses where full grounding is essential and for use in areas where it is not possible to ensure full grounding. Nega-Stat® P190 is used in selected products and specific industrial situations where grounding is either not required or not possible.
  NEWLIFE Polygiene® - This Eco Friendly high tech product is a continuous filament yarn that provides odor control, easy care and long-lasting performance, which is polymer-intrinsic in the yarn. NEWLIFE Polygiene® is a 100% mechanically recycled polyester yarn that is certified, fully traceable, and made in Italy by the Sinterama Group. The effective action of NEWLIFE Polygiene® stops the proliferation of a wide range of bacteria, and gets rid of unpleasant smells. Performance will not decrease after repeated washings and dry cleaning, and is not altered by exposure to light, heat or humidity.

  Nüwash® - This proprietary hybrid fiber, developed by Nüwa Textiles, has a unique finish, which offers both durability and endless design options. The fabric is featured in stonewashed denim effects, heathers, straw mat looks, or tatamis through the careful intermixing of 95% nylon and 5% synthetic blended fibers that react differently to the dyestuffs. The resulting Nüwash® fabric features three to four colors within the yarn, resulting in a depth and richness not previously achieved in ballistic performance nylon. Developed in heavier weights, the fabric is available in a full range of 400, 840, and 1680 denier ballistic weaves.
