PrimaLoft, the world leader in performance insulation, recently conducted the bluesign screening and was subsequently awarded compliance with the bluesign criteria, establishing PrimaLoft as the first branded insulation manufacturer to obtain bluesign's system partner status.

Effective immediately, PrimaLoft's ONE, SPORT and ECO insulation products manufactured in Nantong City, China, will carry the esteemed bluesign certification. This certification ensures brands, retailers and consumers that PrimaLoft insulation is an environmentally friendly product and can still be counted on for epic thermal performance in both dry and wet conditions.

Furthermore, brands and retailers seeking to become bluesign members with certified bluesign products are required to use bluesign approved raw materials and fabrics from suppliers and textile mills that are certified bluesign system partners.

According to Sebastian Baumgartner, Communications for bluesign technologies ag, "We are very proud to welcome PrimaLoft to our system partner network. PrimaLoft is the first ever insulation company to become a bluesign system partner and committed to the criteria set by the bluesign standard.”

Baumgartner continued, “This is outstanding proof of the acceptance and importance of the bluesign standard in this industry. In addition, PrimaLoft will allow a large number of brands, retailers and end consumers to benefit from the positive effects of the bluesign standard."

PrimaLoft offers premium insulation products that are engineered for performance and is recognized globally as the performance insulation of choice for world-class brands in the outdoor, home, military, fashion, hunting and workwear markets.

“As a company with roots steeped in the outdoors, PrimaLoft is committed to taking steps to minimize our impact on the environment,” said Eileen Berner, sales and marketing director for PrimaLoft. “Achieving the bluesign standard assures consumers, brands and retailers that PrimaLoft is a trusted partner with products that can be not only counted on to perform, but also adhere to strict environmental, health and safety regulations.”

One of the most renowned environmental certifications in the world, the bluesign standard evaluates each ingredient from raw materials and chemical components to natural resource consumption and the occupational health of the workplace environment. bluesign's proprietary Input Management Process analyzes every component to eliminate the use of potentially harmful substances in the textile manufacturing industry without compromising the product's functionality, quality or design.

bluesign system partners and members demonstrate awareness and responsibility to consumers, while cultivating a positive movement towards sustainability in the industry.

PrimaLoft is a registered trademark of Albany International Corp. PrimaLoft insulation was originally developedfor the US Army as a water-resistant synthetic alternative to down.
