The pilling properties of different fibres are tested using the bending revolution rate test. The faster the fibre snaps, the lower the likelihood of pilling.
In this test, Trevira fibres achieve a significantly higher anti-pill property than other comparable products on the market.
One reason for this is that our low-pill fibres are developed so that their low-pill property only becomes fully active in the finished article.
Your advantages at a glance - better, faster and lower-cost processing
The excellent anti-pill properties of our low-pill fibres make it possible to twist the yarns, whether normal or plied, to a greater degree of softness, creating textiles with a softer handle. It also means that we do not need to add extra anti-pill finishes to the textiles, thus simplifying and speeding up production.
