Weinheim, 07 February 2019. The bluesign® system partner Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel is presenting a range of new comfortemp® products: High-performance enhancements to the company’s sustainable thermal insulation systems made from recycled polyester fibers.
comfortemp® from Freudenberg comprises a range of innovative materials that combine perfect comfort with outstanding thermal insulation. “Following the tremendous success of the market launch last year, we have continued to develop comfortemp® for the sports and fashion sector; we are now presenting a complete product portfolio made from 100% recycled polyester”, explained Ulrich Scherbel, General Manager of Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel.
At ISPO Munich, from February 3 to 6, Freudenberg experts were presenting the new HO 13X R insulation series. This features a high degree of insulation and is made from 100% recycled polyester derived from recycled PET bottles. It is also particularly soft and breathable, making it ideal for sports and fashion clothing, including modern fits.
In contrast, the fiber balls and loose fibers of the new WB 300 R (fiber balls) and WA 100 R (loose fibers) series have superior bulking properties and can be used to make garments with the look and feel of down. These series are also made from 100% recycled polyester from recycled PET bottles.
The classic, high-insulation comfortemp fiberball eco HO 29X R series consists of 100% recycled polyester fiber balls and is the perfect alternative to down.
“Thanks to the many new materials in our comfortemp® range, we can now offer every customer a suitable solution for their specific needs, all made from 100% recycled polyester”, Scherbel concluded.
