Lenzing Debuts Tencel® Sun Fiber

Cellulosic fiber producer Lenzing AG, Austria, has developed Tencel® Sun fiber, comprising Tencel lyocell fibers with permanently integrated mineral-based pigments that provide ultraviolet (UV) protection. According to the company, while conventional fibers lose more than half their UV capabilities after the fabrics become damp or stretched, Tencel Sun fibers swell, providing long-term protection. Lenzing reports that even after numerous launderings, the fiber maintains its effectiveness, and has been shown in testing to attain a sunscreen level of up to 110 SPF.

Suitable for high-activity and sports apparel, Tencel Sun fiber offers moisture management and skin-sensory properties and exhibits reduced bacterial growth.
