Nylgold, new anti-oxidant fiber combines luxury & beauty

Abstract:
Nylgold - a new innovative luxury fibre featuring 24-carat gold nanostructure - was launched at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics by Nylstar, specialists in polyamide 6.6 fibres and yarns for more than 80 years.

The key to Nylgold is its integration of the NYG nanosystem, a new breakthrough in nanotechnology with revolutionary biological properties. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) molecules are bound to 24-carat gold nanoparticles to generate the NYG nanosystem, with HA molecules directly mounted on the surface of a gold nanoparticle, forming a novel nano-structure composed by a gold core and a HA shell. Each gold nanoparticle carries thousands of HA molecules. Nylgold is created when the NYG nanomaterial is integrated in nylon fibres using a new process developed by Nlystar. The company has said that Nylgold's use of nanoparticles offers anti-oxidant, moisturising and anti-ageing benefits for products using the new fibre.
