Polartec 100% Recyclable and Lighter Power Air™ Fabric

Published by Mountainblog on .

 

Polartec® , the premium provider of innovative and sustainable textile solutions, announces the latest advancement of Polartec® Power Air™ . The first fabric technology engineered to reduce fiber shedding is now made to be 100% recyclable and circular, and also 25% lighter than the initial product.

Polartec® Power Air™ , launched last year with brands like Houdini, Adidas, Burton and NOBULL, is an innovative platform offering advanced thermal efficiency by encapsulating lofted fibers within a multilayer, continuous yarn fabric construction. Insulation that effectively regulates core body temperature has traditionally been achieved via lofted or high-pile knit structures that hold warm air. (more…)

Polartec, the premium provider of innovative and sustainable textile solutions, announces Polartec® Power Air™, the first fabric technology engineered to reduce fibre shedding.  By encapsulating lofted fibres within a multilayer, continuous yarn fabric construction, this revolutionary new platform offers advanced thermal efficiency that is proven to shed five times less than other premium ‘mid-layer’ weight fabrics.

Insulation that effectively regulates core body temperature has traditionally been achieved via lofted or high-pile knit structures that hold warm air. Although Polartec is a leader in making resilient materials, it has recognised that any exposed fibre is susceptible to shedding as a function of normal wear. The Polartec Power Air construction process mitigates this by encasing the insulating lofted fibres within the knitting process. (more…)
