RPET Fabrics
  • PET bottles
  • Label removals and Crushing
  • Deep Cleaning and Separation
  • Flakes and Sorting
  • Polymerization
  • Carding, Combing, Spinning
  • RPET Yarn
  • Weaving, Knitting
  • RPET Fabrics

There are basically two types of RPET fabrics. Firstly there is non-woven fabric which is mostly used at light shopping bags. Second, woven and knitted fabrics are commonly used at travel bags, clothes and other various products. RPET fabrics look and feel the same as general polyester fabrics as well as the functionality. Therefore it is almost impossible to tell the difference. This makes RPET fabrics practical and convenient for the makers. Although RPET fabrics are normally a little bit more expensive than polyester fabrics, the technologies have been highly improved and the current awareness of garbage separation is better than ever hence the industry has a huge potential to grow.

Recycled Cotton
  • Byproducts and post-consumer cotton waste
  • Sorting by types and colors
  • Stripping
  • Carding, Combing, Spinning
  • Recycled Cotton Yarn
  • Weaving, Knitting
  • Recycled Cotton Fabrics

Cotton can be recycled from pre-consumer (post-industrial) and post-consumer cotton waste. Pre-consumer waste comes from any excess material produced during the production of yarn, fabrics and textile products. Post-consumer waste comes from discarded textile products, e.g. used apparel and home textiles. During the recycling process, the cotton waste is first sorted by type and color and then processed through stripping machines that break the yarns and fabric into smaller pieces before pulling them apart into fiber.
The resulting staple fiber is shorter than the original fiber length, meaning it is more difficult to spin. Recycled cotton is therefore often blended with virgin cotton fibers to improve yarn strengths. Commonly, not more than 30% recycled cotton content is used in the finished yarn or fabric.
Because waste cotton is often already dyed, re-dyeing may not be necessary. Cotton is an extremely resource-intense crop in terms of water, pesticides and insecticides. This means that using recycled cotton can lead to significant savings of natural resources and reduce pollution from agriculture. Recycling one ton of cotton can save 765 cubic meters (202,000 US gal) of water.

Tyvek and other Eco-friendly products

Tyvek is a brand of flashspun high-density polyethylene fibers, a synthetic material; the name is a registered trademark of the DuPont company, known for their production of chemicals and textiles. Tyvek is often used as housewrap, a synthetic material used to protect buildings during construction. The material is difficult to tear, but can easily be cut with scissors or a knife. Water vapor can pass through Tyvek, but liquid water cannot. All of these properties have led to Tyvek being used in a variety of applications.
