Polartec unveils Polartec Power Fill insulation

May '17
Polartec LLC, the premium provider of innovative textile solutions, synthetic fleece, and industry leader in post-consumer recycling based in the US, has announced the upcoming launch of Polartec Power Fill, the fabric technology which is a best-in-class fill insulation that rounds out the company’s range of temperature-regulating performance fabrics.

Polartec Power Fill is a soft and pliable matrix of spun polyester yarns engineered with a proprietary hollow fibre construction that is softer and more durable, forming thousands of air pockets that continuously capture and contain body heat, while maintaining a resilient, equalised thermal layer between the colder air on the outside and the warmer temperatures on the inside.

A unique controlled melt process bonds the hollow fibres, increasing durability and drapability, eliminating the need for scrims or other stabilisers. This gives Power Fill unmatched warmth and design versatility for a wide range of styles and usage occasions. The polyester fibre’s inherent hydrophobic properties also work to ensure that Polartec Power Fill resists moisture absorption and dries quickly, while maintaining a high warmth to weight ratio.

Made with industry-leading, cruelty-free, 80 per cent post-consumer recycled content, Power Fill insulation technology provides greater warmth retention in colder conditions, without added weight or bulk.

The company CEO Gary Smith said, “We’re proud to deliver an insulation technology to our customers that enables the design of better products with Polartec premium quality. Polartec created the category of active insulation with our industry leading range of Alpha temperature regulating product offerings, and now Power Fill continues with innovative fill solutions for the coldest conditions.”

Polartec Power Fill is being shown to customers now in 60, 80, 100, and 135 gram/metres weights, and will first become available to consumers in Fall 2017 product from Polartec customer Triple Aught Design. (GK)
