ADVANSA unveils two new performance insulations
Jan '09
ADVANSA, Europe's Polyester Leader, announces the introduction at ISPO Munich of two new ranges of high-end technical insulation products for Sleeping Bags and Apparel.

In partnership with industry leaders in Asia and Europe, a worldwide distribution network is in place for the new product range, which will be commercialized under two related brand names, Thermo Cool for apparel and Thermo Dry for sleeping bags.

Drawing on ADVANSA's industry leading experience in the research and development of high-tech fibres, both products have been designed to provide not just maximum warmth, but also a microclimate that reduces the adverse effects of perspiration and condensation while enhancing comfort.

Gerard Illeras, Global Market Manager for Sport End uses has declared “ADVANSA has a lot of experience in development and manufacturing of technical fibres both for high end performance insulation products and also special fibres specifically designed to deal with moisture management in sports apparel. It is logical that we have ended up combining the two technologies.”

“Combinations of different special type of fibres with proprietary engineered cross sections enable the products to offer more than just warmth” - continues Gerard Illeras - “so they can help to deal with the adverse consequences of perspiration, condensation and humidity inside a garment or sleeping bag.”

These fibre technologies have been incorporated into waddings as the fruit of an intensive R&D cooperation together with Hong Kong Nonwoven Fabric Ind. Co. Ltd., an industry leader in the global insulations market. Research and development work has been going on for close to two years to define and test the perfect prototypes adapted to the apparel and sleeping bag using the excellent understanding of Hong Kong Nonwoven into technical and market needs of the end-users.

Thermo Cool products are delivered in different configurations to offer the ideal level of insulation and comfort for each different end-use; Active Sportswear, Fashion, Soft Shells and Accessories such as gloves or boots. Thermo Dry products also have a wide offer to serve all possible specific requirements for sleeping bags end-use.

ADVANSA is well known for its environmental sustainability policies and has a long tradition offering customers the possibility to acquire ecological versions of their technical products. This new range of insulations is not an exception and the offer is enhanced by the presence of post-consumer recycled products to fulfil a growing worldwide market request. Thermo Dry is also available in a combination with TENCEL fibre from Lenzing, thereby combining two fibres under the EU Eco-label and combining the contrasting benefits of the two materials.

In order to facilitate the availability of the product, ADVANSA has partnered with leading producers, company Hong Kong Non Woven in Asia and company PEG in Europe as sole distributors of Thermo Cool and Thermo Dry performance insulations.
