Our swimsuits are made with the Amni® Soul Eco yarn, the world's first biodegradable polyamide 6.6 yarn, which allows clothes made from it to decompose in less than 3 years when properly disposed of in landfills, that allows a new conception for textile items.
Amni Soul Eco is a 100% Brazilian technology, developed by Rodhia - which integrates the international Solvay group, of chemical development for advanced materials.
The Amni Soul Eco® thread has no toxic components in its formulation is completely Natural. The product is Oekotex® certified. The residues of its biodegradation are basically organic compounds, as are the residues of other biodegraded natural materials such as paper and cotton. They are free of heavy metals, and their non-toxicity to the environment has been tested by test according to the method / standard ASTM E1963 - Standard Guide for Conducting Terrestrial Plant Toxicity Tests. It also has proven UV50 + UPF50 + protection.
Synthetic threads generally use plastic polymers such as PET and Polyamide as raw material. As plastic materials, it takes decades or even centuries to biodegrade once discarded, leaving an important environmental footprint at the end of the useful life of the textile article. Amni Soul Eco® is the world's first polyamide yarn with accelerated biodegradation, marketed by Solvay. Amni Soul Eco® biodegradable in just a few years when discarded in well-controlled sanitary landfills, as evidenced by laboratory biodegradation tests according to ASTM D5511 - Standard Test Method for Determining Anaerobic Biodegradation of plastic materials under the safety standards of hygiene conditions to ISO 15985). Amni Soul Eco® is basically a polyamide with a formulation of additives that confer the property of accelerated biodegradation.
