Acrylic


Light, high bulking power, soft and warm, light-fast and weather-resistant, felt-free, it does not shrink, it is mothproof, it comes in bright colours, it is easy-care and fast-drying. Due to the permanent gathering, the PAN-discontinuous fibre is very similar to wool; however the tear and abrasion resistance of wool is significantly exceeded. It has excellent resistance and thermal insulation properties. Being soft to the touch, the material is very elegant and, due to its low moisture absorbance, it hardly soils.

Amicor


Amicor with the long-lasting, "permanently installed" effect reduces the creation of odours (because they are bacterial), improves wearing comfort and ensures freshness round the clock in a number of application fields.

Anti-pill properties


The anti-pill properties on garments prevent pilling in the textiles. Pilling occurs by friction on the surface of the material causing the wool hairs to become knotted and felted.

AQL-value


Acceptable Quality Level = procedure for determining quality. The DIN EN 455 defines a tightness value of at least 1.5 for medical disposable gloves.
