Lenzing Modal Color - Developed by Lenzing, the Austrian fiber producer, Lenzing Modal Color is colored Modal® fibers that are available in the spun-dyed shades of black, red, blue, brown, and beige. A wider range of shades can be achieved through cross-dyeing. Using solution dyed colors with the colored pigments permanently impregnated into the fiber, Lenzing reduces the amount of energy and water required by traditional piece or yarn dyeing processes. Lenzing Modal Color is also more colorfast.
  Lenzing Modal® - This high wet modulus fiber is particularly well suited to blends with cotton since both fibers have similar properties. In particular, the dyeing performance of Lenzing Modal® emulates that of cotton. Naturalness plays a key role in Lenzing Modal®. The fiber is made from beech wood, a natural raw material. The pulp used for fiber production is made by Lenzing to guarantee consistent and reliable quality. The natural softener makes Modal fabrics pleasant to the touch even after repeated washing. Hardening of the rayon fabric, which occurs as a result of limestone deposits and traces of detergent, becomes a thing of the past with Lenzing Modal®.
  LIFE Natural® - This trademarked odor control treatment, developed by Life Material Technologies, Ltd., uses peppermint oil as the active ingredient.

Sourced from sustainable raw materials, Life Natural® can be easily applied to all fiber types (synthetics and cellulosic-based fabrics), as well as EVA foam. The treatment is natural, renewable, and sustainable.
  LIFE® - This trademarked antimicrobial treatment, developed by Life Material Technologies, Ltd., durably binds effective antimicrobial ingredients to textiles and leather.

LIFE® surface finishes for textiles and leather can be applied to all types of fiber constructions and are compatible with most finishing agents, including flame retardant finishes and all resin systems and softeners normally used in textile finishing.
