New collaboration - new fibre
Schoeller presents its first fabrics with X4zol-J from Lubrizol
The long-established Swiss company Schoeller Textil AG is known for innovative, stretch woven and warp-knit fabrics for Performance, Protection, Sports and elite sports categories. Lubrizol is a specialized chemical company based in Cleveland, Ohio (USA), which has developed a new elastomeric fiber. Schoeller’s partnership with Lubrizol to utilize the X4zol-J fiber program enables the companies to jointly develop new textiles which meet a previously unachieved standard in terms of compression, fabric elongation and wearer comfort.
Lubrizol’s innovative new fiber takes apparel fit to the next generation, as it provides balanced 360º of comfortable stretch and support, breathability and sustainable benefits. Lubrizol X4zol-J, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) fiber, is a new elastomeric monofilament that is manufactured differently from spandex, resulting in unique qualities that provide high wearer comfort. X4zol-J is created through solvent-free melt extrusion.
