With the aim offering more sustainable market solutions, the Spanish synthetic yarn and fiber producer Antex SA, Angles, has expanded its range of textile products, as of January 1, 2021. This new activity has been built on the basis of an existing company (Inquitex, El Prat de Llobregat/Spain, and later Eko-REC, Andoain/Spain) with more than 50 years of experience in the world of fibers. By combining synergies from both companies, the objective is to consolidate and strengthen current fiber markets.

Thanks to its recycling capacity and machinery, Antex Fibers can offer a wide range of products which are 100% recycled from post-consumer waste and at the same time help manage post-industrial waste from the textile and packaging sector.

The fiber coloring process is also carried out by means of environmentally friendly technology. The color is incorporated via masterbatch during the extrusion and spinning process, so that significant savings in water use, energy consumption and CO2 emissions are achieved.

These fibers can be used in multiple applications, e.g. automotive, filling, filtration and cleaning.

In the Sustainable Line the following fibers are offered:

  • Seaqual fiber: As a partner of Seaqual Initiative, Antex offer recycled polyester fibers with marine plastic content,
  • Anti-flash fiber: specially pigmented fibers that reduce the occurrence of electric arcing and the defects caused by this during the part production process,
  • -       Yarnback fiber: to help close the textile recycling loop, Antex recycles waste from different stages of the textile chain and incorporate it into its fibers,
  • Ynmas fiber: color fibers tailor made for the client based on pigments applied into the polymer during the extrusion process,
  • Flame-retardant fiber: family of polyester-recycled fibers which, thanks to the incorporation of non-halogenated additives, acquire flame-retardant properties.
  • Yarnaway fiber: Biodegradation is one of the options to combat the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills. Yarnaway fibers offer a unique solution to increase biodegradation in biologically active landfills.
  • Ynviron fiber: Synthetic polymer fibers derived from both industrial waste and the packaging industry, specially designed to suit the requirements of each application and to meet all quality standards.
