DECORA® POY spundyed yarns
DECORA for automotive applications
Today, 65% of all textiles used in the automotive sector are made from polyester filament yarn: seats, door panels, roof-lining. Because of its outstanding capacity for development and creativity,Miroglio (formerly owned by Setila) is one of the leading contributors to this market, supplying the right yarn to equip more than 3 million vehicles with fabrics and velours in a wide range of colours. A close collaboration with the automotive manufacturers ensures a perfect creation of fabrics which will be used in the cars of tomorrow.
To meet the demands of the world's major automotive producers, Miroglio (formerly owned by Setila)offers DECORA ® a spundyed polyester yarn whose technology allows the manufacturer to achieve exceptional resistance to the effects of lights and UV rays. The technology and performance features of this yarn underline Miroglio's (Decora was formerly owned by Setila) ensured position in the automotive market.
Technology has allowed the utilization life of a vehicle to be increased by several years. With the application of spun dyed DECORA polyester yarns it is now possible to reach the same durability levels for the interior of such vehicles. Upholstery, side panels and roofing fabrics retain their colors in spite of exposure to light, UV rays, high temperatures and humidity.
High service value demands in terms of shape stability, rubbing fastness and ease of maintenance are calling for polyester to be used. With today's demands for recycling the use of one single material is a must in the automobile industry.
Jet- or spin dyeing of polyester filament is a speciality of Miroglio (Decora was formerly owned by Setila). Compared with piece dyeing, high quality dyestuffs are added to the spinning mass. This results is a number of distinct practical advantages:
This was what man-made fibers were unable to give textile designers, interior designers and artists until now: woven fabrics, warp knitted, circular knitted and other fabrics with the excellent properties of rawwhite polyester yarns, but with far more opportunities for colours and colour accuracy.
Spun-dyed DECORA ® guarantees maximum colour evenness from lot to lot permitting the production of extremely large batches in a uniform colour.
In fact, up to 60'000 meters of fabric in the very same shade from the first to the last meter. This is only possible with spin-dyeing. Additionally, a much more precise shade continuity from lot to lot. Colour and spinning mass can be precisely adjusted for accurately predictable results.
The advantages in making up are obvious:
DECORA ® has a comprehensive range of yarn counts to cater for every possible area of application.
Apart from the standard yarns, a wide range of yarn counts is available from dtex 30 to 500, either bright or semidull in various cross-sections. A wide range of applications is possible: twisting, texturizing, weaving, knitting, double plush-Raschel and of course warp knitting for car upholstery, car headlining, side panels, rear parcel shelves, upholstery fabrics and furnishing fabrics.
The main count is dtex 167 f 48, which is supplied as a POY. This POY is then friction and air textured. Although the highly demanding automotive industry is the primary market such qualities can also be used for fashion textiles or for mattress materials.
Other POY counts, such as dtex 78 f 24, 110 f 36, 240 f 48 are also possible.
