Freudenberg Unveils Thermal Insulation Products For Garments

Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel, a manufacturer of technical textile solutions for the apparel industry has launched two advanced thermal insulation products made from low-level Bisphenol A (BPA) recycled PET fibres (rPET).

“The two products, Down Feel WA 150LB and Fiberball WB 400LB have been launched under Comfortemp, Freudenberg’s thermal insulation brand,” the company said in a press release.

Down Feel WA 150LB is an extremely-lightweight, loose fibre thermal insulation with a super-light loft, while Fiberball WB 400LB uses clusters of extra-fine fibres to offer optimal breathability, maximum comfort, and minimal clumping after washing and drying.

Both products have been manufactured using 100 percent GRS-certified rPET fibres and can be customised to desired fill levels.

Additionally, these new products not only comply with but significantly surpass the stringent Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class I certifications.

“While Oeko-Tex categorises low-level BPA as less than 100 parts per million (ppm), these new products contain less than 1 ppm BPA, a testament to Freudenberg’s unyielding standards,” the German company noted.

“Our commitment to customers and sustainability aligns with market expectations for safer, responsible products while maintaining quality and performance,” said Merry Chen at Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel.

“The Down Feel WA 150LB and Fiberball WB 400LB products exemplify this commitment, providing innovative thermal insulation that prioritises performance and customer well-being,” Chen added.

The House of Sustainability (HoS) is Freudenberg Apparel’s initiative to support customers in creating a more sustainable apparel industry.

With over 500 innovative solutions, the HoS offers a comprehensive range of applications to shape a sustainable future.

Freudenberg has also added HO 80xR into its Comfortemp European range and HoS in this manufacturing season.

This new thermal insulation is made of recycled polyamide 6 from plastic waste, including fishing nets, carpet flooring, and industrial plastic.

With 70 percent recycled polyamide fibres, this thermal insulation makes garments’ life sustainable and is designed to be recycled and reused over and over again.
