  • Newlife™ blends with up to 50% by weight of 'natural’ or organic fibers;
  • Newlife™ blends with up to 50% by weight of renewable fibers (Lyocel, Ingeo, Soy, Milkofil, etc. ..)
  • Newlife™ blends with up to 50% by weight of recycled materials, except for polyester. Exceptions are decided upon by Sinterama on the basis of the performance requirements of the product.
  • Newlife™ blends with up to 10% by weight of spandex/polyurethane elastomer, when specifically used to achieve the elasticity haracteristics of the fabric;
  • Newlife™ blends with up to 15% by weight of synthetic fibers (not polyurethane), when specifically used to achieve the elasticity characteristics of the fabric;
  • >Other blends specifically approved and put in writing by Sinterama Group.


Sinterama Spa,as owner of Newlife™ trademark, reserves the right to consider any other business exceptions in relation to the use of the trademark.

Fabrics:
  • A knitted or woven fabric made from Newlife™ must be accredited
Garments:
  • A garment made entirely from an accredited fabric does NOT need to be accredited because it is not subject to further processing that would affect its characteristics.
  • A garment made entirely from an accredited textile which is further dyed and processed during the manufacture of the garment needs to be accredited.
  • A garment produced directly from yarn (e.g. sweater) with no intermediate fabric production step needs to be accredited.

General Note: If a product component is being marketed as being made from or with Newlife™, only the component needs to be accredited. The end product of which the component is a part need not be accredited if the end product as a whole is not being marketed as being made from or with Newlife™
