Unifi's Repreve family to include fiber of recycled PET bottles

Jun '09
Unifi Inc continues to grow its family of REPREVE recycled products with the introduction of a new fiber made from 100% post-consumer PET bottles. The new addition offers a 100% post-consumer option to the brand's well known 100% hybrid blend, which combines pre-consumer and post-consumer content.

The REPREVE family of recycled products now includes: Recycled Filament Polyester o Available as 100% Post-Consumer (Recycled PET Bottles) or 100% Hybrid Blend (Pre-consumer and post-consumer waste) Recycled Filament Nylon 6.6 Recycled Staple Polyester Recycled Performance Fibers o Available with flame retardant, moisture wicking, stretch and color technologies

"UNIFI now offers the most extensive array of recycled fibers in the global textile market," said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi. "And with the addition of the 100% post-consumer recycled option, our customers have another choice when developing their sustainable products."

To preserve the integrity of the REPREVE brand and ensure that fabrics and products made from REPREVE are traceable, transparent and certifiably sustainable, Unifi is introducing the U TRUSTT verification program. U TRUST is a comprehensive certification program that is designed to provide REPREVE customers with a new level of transparency.

As part of the U TRUST program, the company is introducing FIBERPRINTT - a unique technology allowing for enhanced traceability in fabrics and products. Through Unifi's Fabric Certification process, Unifi can analyze fabrics for the FIBERPRINT signature and certify the level of REPREVE content.

"The U TRUST program provides our customers with a new level of confidence and protects the value that the REPREVE brand offers and helps prevent any false claims," said Berrier. "The U TRUST verification program demonstrates our commitment to integrity and authenticity, which are part of Unifi's core values."
