Concept III partners chemical producer Bolger & O'Hearn

Concept III, the leader in textile-based product solutions, has partnered with specialty chemical producers Bolger & O'Hearn to bring the latter’s latest chemical products to market. Bolger & O'Hearn develops thousands of specialty chemical products for the nonwoven and textile industries and the partnership will help the company push its new innovations.

For more than 30 years, Concept III has been the go-to partner in the performance textile industry. It works alongside leading mills and technology innovators to develop and source new materials for iconic brands among the outdoor and activewear industries.

“With Concept III behind us, we can really push our newest innovations, such as Altopel F3, to the outdoor industry," said Shaun O'Hearn, president of Bolger & O'Hearn.

Altopel F3 is an environmentally sound waterproofing finish for textiles. It is a water-based product that produces no harmful fluorocarbon byproducts. Unlike traditional water repellents that are comprised of fluorine, leading to toxic bio-accumulation, Altopel F3 is unique as it is free of fluorine yet remains durable and highly water resistant.

“We really pride ourselves in only partnering with companies that aren't afraid to disrupt the status quo. And Bolger & O'Hearn is no exception. Their sustainably produced chemicals will be true game changers for major outdoor apparel manufacturers,” said Chris Parkes, president of Concept III.

“Now, as many apparel brands, especially those focused on the outdoor market, put a premium on sustainable practices, it is absolutely critical we uphold the highest environmental standards. Since Altopel F3 is unrivaled in both efficacy and eco-friendliness, we are really raising the bar with regard to sustainability. And we could not be more excited to have Concept III along for the ride,” added O'Hearn.

Bolger & O'Hearn is committed to sustainability and is a bluesign system partner. The independent bluesign system is a global program that establishes strict guidelines to ensure safe, eco-friendly textile manufacturing processes. (KD)
