AFM introduces Silver Lining Reflective Insulating Fabrics
31
Dec '09
Advanced Flexible Materials Inc. (AFM Inc.) the parent company of Heatsheets will bring to market Silver Lining. AFM's Silver Lining fabrics combine reflective insulation with a soft, non-woven fabric to create a versatile, efficient and comfortable insulating lining. Products made from Silver Lining are waterproof and windproof, or breathable and wind-resistant.

Silver Lining components can be incorporated as linings, layers, and primary fabrics for a growing number of new and innovative products – from parka linings to emergency sleeping bags and footwear. The Japanese market has embraced a Silver Lining blanket that works like an electric blanket yet requires no power, conserving household costs and energy.

Silver Lining fabrics are available as water proof TF (non-breathable) and breathable aire-TF (breathable). Fabric charateristics include, non-conductive IR-reflective insulation layer that retains reflective insulation properties even when wet. The fabric is easy to cut and sew, and is machine washable.

Silver Lining is available in two thicknesses: TF-1 – 'Ultra-Light', suitable for linings and select, single or limited use applications. TF-1 tests 'best' in IR (InfraRed)-reflective performance for this category of product. Our quietest option is the TF-2 – 'Light Weight', suitable for linings and carefully selected reusable products. TF-2 has 'good' IR-reflective performance and the Silver side includes a UV inhibitor, offering more sustained resistance to breakdown in sunlight and other UV sources. This fabric becomes softer and quieter with use or washing.

For manufactures in outdoor and snow markets this means four development options: waterproof and windproof, or breathable and wind-resistant in Ultra-Light and or Light Weight. The different characteristics allow for more design options and inspiration. Applications in gear include apparel and hard goods; which mean innovations in footwear, jackets, tents, bags, gloves and more.

AFM's products and solutions share a common technology, based on the reflective insulation material developed by NASA for the US space program. AFM is a Life Time Member of the Space Foundation and has been granted an Exclusive in Category for its application of Reflective Insulation Technology for consumer applications. The company was one of the first to have its products granted Certified SPACE Technology status. The Outdoor Retailer venue will allow for greater business opportunities in retail, event promotions and supplier relations.
