Lenzing Launches ProModal® Blended Fiber

Austria-based cellulosic fiber manufacturer Lenzing AG has introduced ProModal®, a blend of Lenzing Modal® and Tencel® fibers that combines Modal’s soft hand with Tencel’s moisture absorption, skin-sensitive properties and strength.

ProModal is blended using a specific blending ratio of the two fibers developed for this particular application. According to Lenzing, textiles made with the blended fiber exhibit enhanced tear strength and bursting pressure, and a soft hand with increased fullness. ProModal can be used alone in knitwear and also can be blended with cotton.

To assist manufacturers licensed to market fabrics using the ProModal brand, Lenzing has established the ProModal Club, through which it offers technical support services related to fabric production as well as marketing and processing advice. According to the company, members also can optimize their supply chain management, and retailers and brands can receive sourcing support.

Lenzing also is promoting the sustainability of ProModal, which is extracted from wood. The company points out that the fiber blend has a yield approximately six times higher than that of cotton, and its production consumes 10 to 20 times less water.
