INDIA: Indian Rayon to produce Enka viscose filament yarn
Enka branded viscose filament yarn is being produced in India for the first time by Indian Rayon, a division of Aditya Birla Nuvo Limited (ABNL).
The company has invested in the spool spun yarn technology from Enka GmbH and Co in Germany, which will make superfine deniers - used in georgettes, chiffons and crepes - at its unit in Gujarat.
"The production of yarn on Enka machines [will] give an edge to the Indian Rayon business and also give flexibility to customers in procuring the Enka branded yarn from [an] Indian plant," explains Lalit Naik, deputy managing director, ABNL.
Enka yarn originates from cellulose drawn from wood pulp, has a uniform cross-section, high tensile strength, high brightness and whiteness properties, in addition to high lustre, a soft and smooth feel, drape and fluidity.
