    CoolVisions® Brings Refreshed Vision to Outdoor Retailer

    Duluth, GA, June 18, 2018—CoolVisions® dyeable polypropylene brand returns to Outdoor Retailer at the inaugural Denver version of OR Summer Market, July 23 – 26. With a fresh take on its colorful “Metamorphosis in Performance” promise, the developer and manufacturer of the revolutionary dyeable performance fiber will exhibit an expanded range of fiber options, interpreted in innovative textiles from its global mill partners.

    The range of textile and apparel products featuring CoolVisions® includes knits, wovens, denims, and insulation fill, giving brands and consumers a broad range of choices from a trusted component brand.

    The CoolVisions® roster of dyeable polypropylene fiber includes made-in-America cottony-soft staple; CoolVisions® + Cotton, spun by Grupo Miro in Mexico; and WoolVisions™ intimate blend of CoolVisions® dyeable polypropylene staple with merino wool, spun by Chia Her in Taiwan. Further development of WoolVisions™ yarns is ongoing internationally at Peignage DuMortier in France, the Schoeller Spinning Group in Austria, Südwolle in Germany, and Patrick Yarns in the US.

    Cool, dyeable polypropylene filament from parent company Indorama Ventures in Rayong, Thailand, also available from Taiwanese distributor Reamou, provides additional design and performance options.

    CoolVisions® brand’s new visual identification updates its “Metamorphosis in Performance” theme with an abstract butterfly drawn in free-flowing color, emphasizing the fiber’s key characteristic of dyeability. The new symbol expands the interpretation of Metamorphosis to include the concept of transformative change across the apparel business, from manufacturers to brands to retailers and consumers.

    “CoolVisions® dyeable polypropylene is a modern performance fiber with inherent moisture management, thermal regulation, and resistance to water-based stains—without the use of additives or topical enhancements. This speeds the manufacturing process and lowers costs,” explains Susan Lynn, global sales and marketing manager.

    Lynn adds, “With growing interest in sustainable textiles, it’s important to note that polypropylene has one of the lowest cradle-to-factory gate carbon footprint among synthetic fibers, and CoolVisions® polypropylene fiber is Oeko-Tex® certified.

    CoolVisions® dyeable polypropylene fiber brand offers textile manufacturers and brand partners the tools to differentiate themselves and transform their business, creating products that resonate with today’s consumer.”

    CoolVisions® dyeable polypropylene fiber is a product of FiberVisions®, owned by Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (IVL), a global producer of PET and PTA, based in Thailand. With 76 operating sites in 26 countries, IVL’s vision is to be a world-class chemical company making great products for society.

IVL was recently listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), and ranked among top five of all global chemical companies.

    CoolVisions® Dyeable Polypropylene Outperforms in Innovative Outdoor Fabrics

    Duluth, GA, July 2, 2018—CoolVisions® dyeable polypropylene fiber is proving to be a versatile, all-performance partner in a raft of new hybrid developments for the outdoor market, many with an eye to sustainability.

    A uniquely disperse-dyeable polypropylene, CoolVisions® fiber provides mills and brands with the means to create differentiation in fabric structure, pattern, and coloration. The lightweight, moisture-wicking, thermally-regulating polypropylene staple fiber is perfect for spinning with merino wool or cotton, creating yarns that combine polypropylene’s performance attributes with the comfort of natural fibers, without the use of additives or topical enhancements.  


    Forces of Nature gear by Apparel Strategic Alliances owes its performance cred to CoolVisions® + Cotton knits from Grupo Miro in Mexico. The company recently launched Virtu-Scan™ Apparel, a line of thermally-regulating performance safety apparel featuring CoolVisions® + Cotton. The gear features a logo that can be scanned to confirm the wearer’s identity. WoolVisions™ knits by Global Merino have been adopted by sustainably-minded Norwegian outdoor brand Norrǿna in their line of Skibotn Wool Equaliser T-shirts.

    Taiwan’s HerMin Textiles is following up on last season’s WoolVisions™ collection with a new line of woven dobbies featuring dyeable CoolVisions® and silky, absorbent, sustainable Tencel® cellulosic fibers. Knitter Grandtek Asia combines CoolVisions® with Tencel® and renewably-sourced Sorona® PTT.

    Hard-core performance brands will benefit from new CoolVisions® dyeable filament, commercialized by Indorama Ventures at IPI Rayong, Thailand. Development is also underway at US spinner Premiere Fibers.

    DaFon International in Taiwan has created a range of moisture-wicking, quick-drying, breathable knits combining CoolVisions® filament with polyester, picked up by local performance brand Santo for their Win-Fit collection.

    The latest development in CoolVisions® products comes in an inspired odor-control yarn from FilSpec called FreshFil™. The Canadian-based technical spinner has combined a polyester fiber impregnated with zinc oxide with CoolVisions® staple.

    “FreshFil™ yarns with CoolVisions® provide freshness and UV protection in lightweight apparel, adding to polypropylene’s inherent performance benefits such as moisture management, breathability, thermal regulation, and durability,” explains Susan Lynn, global sales and marketing manager for CoolVisions®. “It’s the best of both worlds for outdoor and active brands.”

    These and other CoolVisions® developments will be on display in Booth 56037-UL at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, July 23 – 26, in Denver.
