Consolidated Fibers to supply Basofil Staple Fiber in North America
Nov '10
Consolidated Fibers has signed a definitive agreement to be the exclusive supplier of Basofil staple fiber in North America. Basofil is an advanced technology melamine fiber designed to blend with commodity and synergistic fibers. Key physical properties of Basofil are:

• Excellent dimensional stability
• Superior Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) value
• Low thermal conductivity
• Ultraviolet (UV) radiation resistance

Competing fiber blends and alternative flame resistant methodology cannot match the protective performance, value and versatility of Basofil. Basofil offers permanent and non-toxic protection allowing the development of FR and high temperature products that are safe, compliant and competitively priced.

“There is a growing need for protective and thermally stable materials that are cost effective for filtration, insulation, protective apparel and structural end uses. With Basofil, cost reduction does not have to mean a performance drop, especially when coupled with other fibers that we offer. Disrupting status quo like this is one of the ways Consolidated Fibers offers the best value in fiber solutions,”says Paul Latten, Division

Consolidated Fibers is a privately held company with a 50-year history as a producer, buyer, seller and consumer of fibers. Today, we are a leading fiber supplier to manufacturers across a range of industries - including hygiene, medical, filtration, automotive, furniture, home textiles, and more. Building on our history, we are expanding geographically and bringing innovation in custom fiber solutions.
