Diolen® Polyester Yarn

Supplier: Indorama


Diolen® is a high-tenacity polyester yarn from Indorama Ventures that is both bio-based and biodegradable. The yarn is composed of polylactic acid polymer (PLA) and is 100% bio-based.

It has the ability to biodegrade under industrial composting conditions and exhibits low moisture absorption. Additionally, the material provides good UV stability and low flammability.

Diolen® demonstrates superior tensile performance over traditional textile yarns. As a sustainable alternative to non-biodegradable materials, it can be used in agricultural and horticultural environments. It can also be used as a sustainable packaging reinforcement for paper-based adhesive tapes.

Overall, Diolen® is an excellent option for a variety of sustainable applications that require high performance, biodegradability, and low environmental impact.
