What bio-based mean ?

Bio based fiber is a fiber derived of biological origin,whether produced naturally or via a regenerated process, here we are introducing our corn starch fiber also known as PLA made of corn as raw material, purified by bio based fermentation, and produced by innovative and clean bio based polymerization technology. It is a synthetic fiber made from corn starch, which is fermented into lactic acid, polymerized and spun.


Corn PLA fiber ( poly-lactic acid fiber) is a man made fiber derived entirely from annually renewable resources. These fibers have the performance advantages often associated with synthetic materials, and complementing properties of natural products such as cotton and wool.

The process for manufacturing the polymer used to make corn fiber on an industrial scale centers on the fermentation, distillation and polymerization of a simple plant sugar, maize dextrose. The sugars are fermented in a process similar to making yogurt. After fermentation products are transformed into a high-performance polymer called polylactide, which can then be spun or otherwise processed into corn fiber for use in a wide range of textile applications.

The production and use of corn fiber means less greenhouse gases are added to the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are the chief contributor to global climate change. Compostability and chemical recyclability mean that under the right conditions and with the right handling, the complete life cycle of production, consumption, disposal and re-use is neatly closed.

Our company’s bio base is 100% PLA, so it can be fully degraded. Under the condition of compost burial, it starts to degrade in 18 months according to the temperature, and completes a degradation process that is invisible to the naked eye in 3-4 years.

Important Attributes​

1) Corn is available in both spun and filament forms in a wide variety of counts from micro denier for the finest lightest fabrics to high counts for more robust applications.

2) It is derived from naturally occurring plant sugars. When products come to the end of their useful life, they can be returned to the earth, unlike petroleum based products, which can only be disposed of through thermal recycling, physical recycling or landfill.

3) Corn fiber balances strength and resilience with comfort, softness and drape in textiles. Corn also uses no chemical additives or surface treatments and amazingly, is naturally flame retardant.

4) It is reported to have outstanding moisture management properties and low odor retention, giving the wearer optimum comfort and confidence.

5) Corn fiber filament also have a subtle luster and fluid drape with a natural hand offering a new material to stimulate creativity.

6) Corn fiberfill allows outerwear garment makers to offer a complete story and a more environmentally friendly alternative to polyester and nylon combinations in padded garments.

7) It reportedly outperforms other synthetics in resistance to UV light, retaining strength color and properties overtime.

8) Easy care, independent wash and dry cleaning tests have shown that the Corn fiber garment tested can be laundered using standard washing and drying machines.

9) Independent testing has confirmed Corn fibers have superior or equal performance to polyester in key active wear applications.

10) Garments in corn fiber reportedly demonstrated good soil release, quick drying and show excellent after-wash appearance.
