Freudenberg is extending its product portfolio for the sportswear and outdoor market area

Weinheim, 28 January 2021. Besides comfortemp® thermo-insulation materials, the leading manufacturer of technical textiles is now also offering sustainable, highly elastic and breathable interlinings and tapes for any kind of sportswear.

Sustainability is an integral part of the business activities of Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel. For example, the company recycles about seven million post-consumer PET bottles every day, making Freudenberg one of the largest recyclers of post-consumer PET bottles in Europe. This is also reflected in the Freudenberg Active Range: Most of these products consist of at least 70 per cent recycled polyester.

Thanks to their sophisticated adhesive polymers, selected products of the series are also perfectly suitable even for complicated and difficult-to-process outer fabrics. Highly elastic outer fabrics keep their flexibility and breathability even when the interlining is fused. This is ensured by a special technology by which the adhesive is applied to a carrier material in the form of small dots without a basis material.

And even for outer fabrics on which fusing is not possible or where fusing of the interlining is not desired, the Active Range offers the suitable solution: sewable interlinings ensuring a handfeel that is natural and elastic at the same time and keep the garment in the desired shape.
