Gabriel Gorescu of Rhodia Fibras, St. André (Brazil) said Rhodia, a member of Solvay Group, has the technology for producing melt spun polyamide microfiber embedded with special bioceramic materials. These “Emana” PA66 fabrics with excellent texture show a high level of FIR emissivity when warmed by the body and thus give significant skin health improvements in clinical (cosmetic) trials.
On the sport field, besides the improvement of body thermoregulation already known as a FIR yarn benefit, this yarn has shown significant benefits during aerobic running exercise and during repetitive eccentric muscle movements. In other words, Mr Gorescu was claiming “Emana” fabrics enabled athletes to run faster when they are tired and body-builders to work harder without damaging muscles. “Emana” also heals wounds.
