Oeko-Tex Association has awarded the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification to US based narrow fabrics producer AEC Narrow Fabrics, which certifies that AEC fabrics are free of harmful levels of more than 300 potentially harmful substances.

“By securing the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for products made in its El Salvador and Honduras facilities, AEC products made in these facilities can be used without concern in other Oeko-Tex certified products,” Oeko-Tex said.

“The modular nature of the Oeko-Tex certification allows manufacturers to take credit for their suppliers' certifications when applying for certification for their own products, therefore saving time and expense,” the testing agency added.

Charles Adams, president of AEC Narrow Fabrics said, “This voluntary certification is recognised and respected by our customers around the world, especially by those who are Oeko-Tex certified themselves.”

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 list of concerning chemicals includes residual pesticides, carcinogenic dyestuffs, phthalates, heavy metals, and formaldehyde and is updated annually and reflects the latest advances in textile chemistry.

AEC manufactures a variety of knitted and woven narrow fabrics for apparel, home textiles, medical, automotive, marine and commercial markets and has operations in the US and Central America with a global distribution network. (AR)
