NYLEO® is the new brand for DOMO’s Performance Fibers product line, bringing together a compelling combination of well-established performance fibers and groundbreaking new solutions. Based on nylon 6,6, NYLEO is used in numerous applications in the textile, flooring, flock and abrasive markets. Thanks to its unique properties, it offers a wide range of actions to enhance product performance.
“In a fast-changing world, markets and consumers demand innovative solutions to meet the daily requisites for health, safety and sustainability,” said Nicolas Forien, sales director PA66 & Fibers at DOMO. “At DOMO, because we are a key polyamide player equipped with the world’s most recent polymerization line for staple fiber, we are committed to achieving cutting-edge breakthroughs in PA 66 fibers. This is demonstrated in our innovative NYLEO line of nylon 66 value-added solutions. These include new products for flame retardancy, enhanced biodegradability, and inhibiting bacteria.” PA66-fibers – UK-rPET-industry
NYLEO merges a rich heritage in the nylon 6,6-based fiber market with a new focus on innovation with three pioneering products: NYLEO PROTECT with improved flame retardancy, NYLEO 4EARTH® with enhanced biodegradability, and NYLEO SAFE with bacteriostatic properties.
DOMO’s legacy of innovation in nylon 6,6 fibers
Based at its Valence site in France, DOMO’s Performance Fibers teams work passionately to create unique fibers designed to meet key market needs. DOMO has been producing world-class PA66 fibers since 1955 for such industries as nonwovens for abrasives and aeronautics, flooring for carpets, high performance textiles, flock for upholstery, automotive interiors and flooring, and many other consumer products. The NYLEO brand will now be applied to the full portfolio of polyamide 6.6 (PA 66) fiber products, including staple fibers, crimped tow and tow for flock. These are well known for their superior resilience, outstanding wear and abrasion resistance, higher tenacity, excellent dyeability and color fastness, consistent quality, and soft feel.
The two companies have agreed to collaborate on creating advanced products based on industry-leading Ingeo PLA and Phact PHA technologies to meet growing demand for sustainable materials across a broad array of markets
CJ BIO (U.S. office in Woburn, Mass.), a division of South Korea-based CJ CheilJedang and leading producer of amorphous polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), and leading producer of PLA NatureWorks, have signed a letter of intent establishing a strategic alignment between the two organizations and have announced that the two companies are working toward a Master Collaboration Agreement (MCA). The companies will work together to develop sustainable material based on CJ BIO’s Phact marine biodegradable PHA bioplastic and NatureWorks’ Ingeo PLA bioplastic. Their goal is to develop high-performance biopolymers that will replace fossil fuel-based plastics in applications ranging from compostable food packaging and food serviceware to personal care, and beyond.

A pioneer in the development of biobased materials NatureWorks has developed many of the leading high-volume applications for PLA. In recent years, PLA has experienced significant growth as a biobased material in a broad range of finished products. Due to its unique functionality, it has been used to replace petrochemical-based plastics, with 100% biobased content, and enable end-of-use recovery options, including compostability and chemical or coated paper recycling. Both companies realize the potential to further enhance performance and end-of-use solutions for biopolymers and increase the level of adoption across many new applications. By combining their expertise and technology platforms, NatureWorks and CJ aim to deliver next-generation solutions together. Initial development and collaboration are showing very promising results when using CJ BIO’s unique amorphous PHA in combination with Ingeo biopolymer.
