Eco Clean technology

soft on skin, gentle on nature

Eco Clean technology brings totally chlorine-free-bleached TENCEL™ Modal fibers to the textile industry, offering one of the most responsible and cleanest choices within all existing modal fibers. It is applicable to both of the renowned TENCEL™ Modal and TENCEL™ Modal x Micro fibers. Owing to the gentle bleaching process, fibers tend to be softer than conventionally bleached ones. Moreover, the process is more environmentally responsible than conventional bleaching.

blending partners

TENCEL™ Modal fibers can be blended with most other fibers and processed using conventional machinery. TENCEL™ Modal is a highly compatible blending partner for cotton and due to the fiber’s sleek cross section, adds long-lasting softness to fabrics, enhancing the touch even after repeated washing. Blending fibers with TENCEL™ Modal fibers significantly improves the softness. Customized colors can also be created using different ratios of blended fibers.

Tx Kb Totally Chlorine Free Rgb

totally chlorine-free

TENCEL™ Modal fibers with Eco Clean technology are manufactured with a completely chlorine-free bleaching technology.

Tx Kb Supply Chain Transparency Rgb

TENCEL™ Modal fibers with Eco Clean technology are identifiable throughout the whole textile supply chain, until the final garment. A special identification technology supports the supply chain transparency.

Tx Kb Responsible Environmental Choice Rgb

responsible environmental choice

TENCEL™ Modal fibers with Eco Clean technology offer the most environmentally responsible choice within all existing modal fibers, including those with Micro technology. Chlorine-free bleaching in pulp and fiber delivers the cleanest modal production technology currently existing.

Tx Kb Austrian Origin Rgb

Austrian origin

TENCEL™ Modal fibers with Eco Clean technology are produced exclusively in Austria, mainly from beech wood sourced from sustainably managed forests in Central and Eastern Europe. They are manufactured with a totally chlorine-free bleaching technology for both pulp and fibers, in an integrated production site with high environmental standards.

Tx Kb Comfortable Next To Skin Rgb

comfortable next to skin (TENCEL™ Modal Micro fibers)

Both dry and moist fabrics made of TENCEL™ Modal fibers with Micro technology were perceived as more pleasant in frictional strain tests on human skin than cotton and polyester fabrics. Furthermore, fabrics made of TENCEL™ Modal fibers displayed a far lower frictional coecient under humid conditions.* This makes TENCEL™ Modal most recommendable for textiles worn next to the skin.

Tx Kb Fine Softness For Comfort Rgb

fine softness for comfort (TENCEL™ Modal Micro fibers)

For a pleasant fabric perception on the human skin, softness is one of the determining parameters. The ner the cellulosic fibers used in textiles, the softer they will be. TENCEL™ Modal fibers are known for their softness. TENCEL™ Modal fibers with Micro technology are very ne cellulosic bers, supporting enhanced comfort by further contributing to the softness of
textile products.

Tx Tech Micro Rgb

Micro technology (TENCEL™ Modal Micro fibers)

Among Lenzing’s Lyocell and Modal fiber portfolio, Micro technology offers an even finer quality of lightness and exquisite softness, producing lightweight fabrics, based on their fine titer. Using Micro technology, TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers are extra fine and light cellulose fibers from sustainable wood sources. TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers pioneer a new dimension of exquisite softness and lightness, offering long-lasting natural comfort. Fabrics containing TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers offer efficient moisture absorption to ensure natural skin comfort.

0016 Unfavoritable Bacteria Growth

sustainable production (TENCEL™ Modal fibers)

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained the reputation for their environmentally responsible, closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp
into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. This economically viable manufacturing process received the European Award for the Environment from the European Commission in the category “The Technology Award for Sustainable Development”. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have been certified as Bio-based by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Moreover, all Lenzing fiber production sites operate according to a certified Environmental Management and Occupational Health and Safety system (ISO14001, OHSAS 18001).

Fully integrated pulp and fiber production at the Lenzing site in Austria makes it possible to produce fibers in an eco-responsible way. At Lenzing, we strive to safeguard resources for future generations by the use of renewable energy from the pulp mill and by recovery of remaining components as co-products. Numerous Lenzing innovations have been integrated in the production of TENCEL™ Modal fibers, to make the process environmentally sound.

0010 Long Lasting Softness

long-lasting softness

Exquisite softness derives from fine fibers, creating softer textiles. TENCEL™ Modal fibers exhibit a smooth surface and high ­exibility, resulting in a naturally soft quality of the textile.

The softness of TENCEL™ Modal fibers is confirmed by a variety of physical test methods, including Kawabata, TSA, Handle-o-meter, and Phabro-meter:

- Measurements and hand evaluations of softness show that TENCEL™ Modal fibers are twice as soft as cotton.

- The softness of TENCEL™ Modal fibers lasts longer and is able to withstand repeated wash and dry cycles compared to cotton.

- LENZING™ Modal Micro Air is Lenzing’s finest and lightest wood-based fiber.

- The degrees of softness of LENZING™ Modal, Modal Micro and Modal Micro Air can be measured by various handfeel assessment as well as physical test methods such as the Tissue Softness Analyzer, Phabro-meter and Ring pull-through.
