Thrive 6,6

Thrive® 6,6. Performance. Forever.

Performance, forever. A bold yet very true claim. Nylon 6,6 is known as one of the most durable synthetic nylon fibers on the market. But “Forever” abides as a tricky word. If Thrive 6,6 lasts forever, what does its construct mean for the environment? What does its level of durability mean for design flexibility?

Environmentally Sound

Thrive 6,6’s 100% solution-dyed fiber and 75% recycled content earned it a Best of NeoCon Innovation Award in 2016 when the product launched, and the product keeps getting better. Thrive® 6,6 rightfully lays claim to one of the lightest carbon footprints in the world, reducing CO2 emissions by 70%. Far ahead of the trend, Universal Fibers® began implementing eco-friendly production processes back in early 1970. We are globally recognized as a virtual zero-waste company with locally and regionally sourced production materials. Even our largest waste stream, plastic from production, is diverted from landfills. In short, Thrive 6,6, checks all of the green boxes.

Versatility in Design

Flexibility in design matters. It’s been a hallmark in our design-centric strategy since day one. That said, Nylon 6,6 holds a notorious reputation for performance. A classification that rings true in Universal Fibers’ Thrive® 6,6.
