TENCEL ™ Modal: The Most Comfortable & Eco-friendly Fabric We Used on Our Product
TENCEL ™ modal fiber is obtained from naturally grown beech wood by an energy-sufficient integrated pulp fiber process that recovers products from wood parts on a self-sufficient basis. This flexible fiber is known for its extraordinary softness.
All-natural Tencel ™ standard modal fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil, and marine conditions and can be entirely returned to nature.
Tencel ™ modal wood fiber is highly flexible, giving textiles a long-lasting quality of exquisite softness. Due to the smooth cross-section of the fibers, Tencel ™ modal fibers improve the soft feel of the fabric even after repeated washes. Measurements and hand evaluations of softness show that TENCEL™ Modal fibers feel twice as soft as cotton. In addition, the softness of TENCEL™ Modal fibers lasts longer and can withstand repeated wash and dry cycles compared to cotton.
Originating from plants
TENCEL ™ modal fiber is made primarily from beech wood from the sustainable forestry of Austria and neighboring countries. Beech forest is a source of natural and renewable raw materials. Most of the wood used in the Lenzing area, Austria and is harvested from certified and controlled sources under the strict guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy *.
In addition, Lenzing Group's timber and pulp are sustainably managed forests. TENCEL ™ lyocell and modal fibers are Bio Preferred® designated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
* These fibers are available on request with FSC® (FSCC041246) or PEFC ™ (PEFC / 063392) certification.
Softness you can count on.
Using TENCEL ™ Modal fibers results in naturally soft textiles and have a smooth surface. Physical tests, such as Kawabata, TSA, Handleometer, and Phabrometer, confirm TENCEL ™ Modal fibers' softness:
- Based on measurements and hand evaluations, TENCEL ™ Modal fiber-made fabrics are twice as soft as cotton fatten. In addition, TENCEL ™
- Modal fibers are softer and can withstand repeated washing and drying than cotton cycles.
By managing moisture, TENCEL ™ Modal fibers help regulate body temperature. Modal is made of natural materials, but its substructure is designed to regulate moisture absorption and release, allowing the fabric to breathe, supporting the body's natural thermal regulation.
The TENCEL™ modal mode is well suited for sports activities. Effective moisture management is ensured thanks to the fiber structure. The microchannels between the microfibrils of the individual lyocell fibers and the internal fibrous structure of the modal fibers regulate moisture absorption and release. This property is beneficial when practicing sports.
Without the right equipment, athletes cannot achieve their best performance. It depends on the proper use of the material and the perfect structure. TENCEL ™ modal fibers can be combined with other fibers, so the material properties resulting from sports textiles are optimized for each activity. For example, with optimal two-layer fabric construction, the outer Tencel modal fibers act like "oil blotting paper" and absorb moisture from the skin.
Modal yarn can be successfully used to develop high-performance sportswear. As a component of sportswear, Modal fibers maintain their hydrophilic qualities over time, making them a practical alternative to hydrophilic topical treatments or synthetic fibers hydrophilic.
The use of Modal fibers in a minority blend with synthetic fibers creates effective sportswear for athletic activities, which produces a lot of perspiration. When used in the right fabric design, the Modal fibers provide increased moisture absorption and cushioning, resulting in better breathability, without compromising dry rates and wet grip.
This is explained by:
• Effective moisture absorption and cushioning
• even moisture distribution
• balance between steam absorption and thermal comfort
