Euroflax Industries (Imports of Textiles)

Fibers like cotton Linen have ruled the world since the start of civilization. Our Sister concern being Pioneers in Cotton, Euroflax deals with alternative fibers also known as functional fibers. Euroflax Company was founded for linen production in India. Due to cheaper costs of manufacturing across the borders, Euroflax now specializes in Linen imports. We deal in the most superior yarns spun with fiber coming from LILY area of Europe.

Euroflax industries also specializes in organic cotton, colour cotton and products related to organic textiles. Our strong knowledge about fibers helps us in selecting the right cotton for spinning. All the fibers Euroflax deals in are environmentally friendly with properties equivalent or superior to conventional cotton.

As we speak about innovation and technology china with its large scale production has invented new fibers like Milk and Soybean. Though in the 1940’s the fibers were quite popular in America and Europe the market for it collapsed due to World war II. Now regenerated, these fibers are more efficient and durable than any other fiber invented before or existing today.

Milk fiber

Milk fiber was invented in 1930’s in Italy and America to compete wool. The fiber known as ARALAC, Lanatil, Merinova all different brands for the same fiber manufactured from milk casein fell victim to their minor flaws and the war.

Montgomery Ward's S/S 1942 catalog featured classic felt styles of 94% new wool and 6% casein fiber.

Today’s Milk fiber is environmentally friendly, superior in strength and has far better qualities than man-made fibers. Some of the advantages of milk fiber :


  • Milk fiber adopts continues graft copolymerization techniques. The producing process has no effect on environment and formaldehyde in the products is zero. So milk fiber can be considered as ‘green product’.

  • Milk fiber is a new synthetic fiber, which adopts milk protein as main material and high-technical process. Milk fiber has the advantages natural fiber combined with synthetic fiber. Milk fiber PH is 6.8 which is the same to human skin. Milk fiber contains seventeen amino-acids and natural anti-bacterial rate is above eighty percent. So milk fiber has sanitarian function.

  • Dyeing stuff for milk fiber is reactive, acid or cationic dyes. Milk fiber is made from milk casein, instead of fresh milk.

Euroflax is the exclusive agent to market milk fiber in India through the manufacturers from China. We provide complete technical assistance from spinning to dyeing and finishing. We also deal in finished products with washing and maintaining assistance. We are the leaders for this product in India and plan to promote this fiber world over.

Soybean

Soybean fiber was invented by Henry ford in 1937 and was termed as soy “Wool’. Henry ford also made a suite and necktie from soybean fiber and used this unique fiber in car upholstery. Soybean like wool was also a victim of the war and the cheaply available man-made fibers. Soybean until 1960 was being manufactured in Poland.

The new soybean fiber was invented in 1998 and was promoted in 2000. The advantages of the fiber: Advantages of soybean fiber blends with other fibers
1. Soybean/cashmere (80/20)
Enhances the hand as well as lowers the manufacturing cost of cashmere products. Gives superior luster and comfort, as well as anti-pilling and drape properties.
2. Soybean/wool (50/50)
Produces excellent results taking advantage of both fibers, the lustrous, soft hand and strength of soybean fiber, and the elasticity and heat-retaining properties of wool. Spinning of high-count yarn is possible.
3. Soybean/silk (50/50)
Provides a solution to problems of silk, such as poor resistance to staining from perspiration and water, poor light fastness and moisture permeability. Higher quality can be achieved at a lower cost.
4. Soybean/cotton (50/50)
Enhances the comfort, luster, moisture-permeability, quick-dry and drape properties of cotton. Upgrades cotton products.
5. Development of yarn
Spinning methods have already been established for 100% soybean fiber, its blends with natural (cotton, linen, wool, cashmere and silk) and chemical (modified polyester, viscose, tencel, polynosic etc.) fibers, and used in plants dealing with cotton, silk and wool. Production of 100% soybean fiber yarns in the range of 21S-80S and blended yarns (28/72, 30/70, 45/55, 60/40, 70/30, 85/15 etc.) is possible.
6. Development of knit fabric
Soybean protein contained in the fiber makes a superior, soft hand endowed with both moisture absorbency and permeability, which makes best application in knits and innerwear. Finished with an anti-bacterial agent, health-care functionalities are also given. It has great potential in its use in high-grade knits and innerwear.
7. Development of woven fabric
Weaves made of soybean fiber blends with other natural or chemical fibers have so far been used in shirting and home textiles. A series of such products, too, has already been developed. Their special feature is the luster and soft hand found in silk. Their economic effects are extremely high.

SUPERIORITIES OF SOYBEAN PROTEIN FIBER FABRICS

  • Cashmere feel: The fabric made of Soybean Protein Fiber is soft, smooth, light. It has cashmere feel, but smoother than cashmere.

  • Dry and comfort: the moisture absorption of soybean fiber is similar to that of cotton fiber, but its ventilation is more superior to that of cotton.

  • Luxuriant appearance: Soybean Protein Fiber fabric has joyful silky luster with perfect drape and elegant;

  • Good color fastness: Its color is quite fresh and lustrous with active dyes while quite stable in the sunshine and perspiration. Compared with silk products, the problem of freshness of color and stability of dying is solved.

  • Anti-ultraviolet: Its anti-ultraviolet property is superior to cotton fiber, much more superior than viscose and silk.

  • Good mechanical property: Breaking strength of the single soybean protein fibre is over 3.0cNdtex, which is higher than that of wool, cotton and silk and only lower than that of polyester fibre of high intension.

  • Function of Health: Soybean Protein Fiber possesses many amino acids necessary to human's body, so it has exceptional function of health.

  • Skin Evaporation: Its amino acid can activate the collagen protein in the skin, resist tickling and evaporate the skin.
