With Dyntex Biodegradable the developer and manufacturer of functional materials Dyntex GmbH, Bregenz/Austria, has launched a light functional fabric that only takes 5 years to biodegrade. Dyntex Biological Origin is also light and made entirely from bio-based raw materials. Working with specialists from Japan and Italy, the company invested 3 years into the development of these 2 biosynthetic fabrics.
The yarn for Dyntex Biodegradable is made of the polyamide Amni Soul Eco, which makes it possible to produce fabrics of high quality that weigh only 38 g/m². In addition, they are water-repellent, breathable, fluorocarbon-free, and durable, even under heavy use. In a landfill, functional textiles made of Dyntex Biodegradable materials decompose into CO2
, methane, and biomass within just 5 years – this was verified in a laboratory in the USA that tested anaerobic biodegradation pursuant to the international ASTM D5511 (ISO 15985) standard. Standard polyamides typically take 10 times longer to biodegrade. When combined with a biodegradable lining, this makes it possible to manufacture fully biodegradable products.
Dyntex Biological Origin is made entirely from renewable resources, with the castor oil plant serving as the basis for the light functional fabric. With this newly developed collection of materials, manufacturers can completely eliminate the use of fossil resources.
