OUR MAINSTREAM FABRIC IS NAMED LIGHT CO2! YOU CAN FIND MORE ABOUT THIS FANTASTIC ARTICLE BELOW.
Light – (CO2) ® was the first article of knitwear to be produced with 6.6 biodegradable nylon, a Brazilian technology and pioneer in the world.
The formulation of this yarn has been improved to allow garments made from it to decompose rapidly after disposal in landfills.
The decomposition that had taken decades to occur in nylon (generic name polyamide) in less than 3 years is already fully decomposed.
This biodegradable nylon named AMNI Soul Eco® was researched and developed by Rhodia®, a company of the Solvay® group.
Light – (CO2) ® is an article from the CO2control® family, a Santaconstancia production concept that seeks more environmentally friendly products.
With a lightly textured look and elasticized structure, it is a mesh of extreme comfort close to the skin and pleasant in daily use.
The article Light – (CO2) ® has UV 50+ protection according to protocol of ARPANSA Standard AS/ NZS4399: 1996.
In this protocol the samples are dry-tested, in the red fabric and nonstretched. Continuing the theme of UV Protection in elastic fabrics, we launched the brand.
Through the pioneering study carried out by SantaConstancia in partnership with Rhodia® Solvay®, more and more in the search and encouragement of consumer welfare.
This protocol is much more stringent and performs the tests on the stretched and wet (Stretch + Wet®) sample, resulting in UV protection factor 80. Light – ® was the first mesh to be analyzed and approved through this protocol.
This fabric is free of products toxic to human skin according to international Oeko-Tex 100 Class I certification.
With technical support and partnership of the São Paulo State Basic Sanitation Company – SABESP, we make sustainable use of industrial water in the process of dyeing and printing, thus allowing the use of reuse water and avoiding the consumption of drinking water.
