DIOLEN®HYPOALLERGENIC is a Polyester yarn free of heavy materials and because of its skin friendly properties suitable for sensitive people. By avoiding antimony in production there is no hazard potential for allergic reactions.
Antimony oxide is worldwide used as catalyst in Polyester fiber production processes and therefore often part of textile materials. Specifically by sweat partial quantities of these antimony compounds could dissolve out of the textiles and be absorbed via respiratory tract or skin. They can cause irritation of eyes, skin and lungs, especially at sensitive people. By producing DIOLEN®HYPOALLERGENIC the commonly used catalyst antimony oxide is replaced by non-toxic substitutes.
