FINISHING / Sustainable - Recycled Nylon
About Recycled Nylon Fabrics

Nylon, a synthetic fiber made of Caprolactam, CPL polymers, doesn’t break down easily and accounts for about 10% of the debris in the ocean. According to the World Society for the Protection of Animals, more than 600,000 tons of fishing gear is dumped into oceans every year, including nylon nets. Fishermen often discard the nets because the alternative is paying someone to dispose of them properly.
Recycled nylon fibers are made from discarded industrial fishing nylon nets, or waste filament from nylon filament factory, or nylon waste selvedge from weaving mills.
The use of recycled nylon allows us to reduce our dependence on petroleum as a source of raw materials.  It can also reduce waste, thereby extending the life of landfills and reducing toxic gases and carbon dioxide emissions from incinerators.  Compared with non-recycled nylon, the use of recycled nylon fibers and fabrics to recycle and reuse waste is an attitude of respecting the environment, protecting the environment, and reducing air, water and soil pollution.


Recyclable Nylon Lamination Membrane

In the original recycling process, it must separate the attachments of different materials, which will be very difficult. While the waterproof breathable nylon fabric uses nylon membrane. The fabric and membrane on the entire fabrics can be easy recycled in the same time, reducing recycling troubles and costs, increase the willingness of recyclers, remade into nylon chips, and then made into nylon products.
