Ecoshield fabrics provide the same protection for the wearer as virgin fabrics, and meet CGSB 155.20-2000 and HRC 2 – ATPV 9.6 cal/cm2 standards. In addition to the protection provided by the fabric, wear tests conducted by Victor Group have proven the fabric is more comfortable than virgin aramid products. Furthermore, Ecoshield fabrics can be used to create clothing that features a unique denim-like appearance.
“Ecoshield represents a significant innovation, revolutionizing the industry’s supply chain with its closed loop concept,” said Al Britton, Director of Sales and Product Development. “We are excited to be able to provide an eco-friendly and safe fabric option for individuals working in hazardous situations.”
The closed loop recycling process that is used to create Ecoshield is an innovative manufacturing achievement for Victor Group. Coveralls worn by workers in the target industries are usually destined for the landfill once they have reached the end of their useful life. Instead, Victor Group will be collecting these worn coveralls, and using them as the raw material for their Ecoshield fabrics, keeping them out of landfills and giving them a second life.
Once an article of clothing has reached the end of its life, Victor collects the clothing, cleans it, strips the buttons and closures, cuts and shreds the fabrics to fiber. From the fiber, the company makes new yarn which is woven into a unique recycled fabric, ready to be manufactured into a brand new coverall with all safety features and wearability of the original item of clothing.
“There are many aspects of Ecoshield that make it an innovative product, but the key feature in my mind is being able to close the loop and maintain the level of protection that a virgin fabric provides,” said Alain Duval, President and CEO of Victor Group. “Personal protection is the primary objective of the clothes. We are extremely proud to be able to offer a closed loop product that provides exceptional protection for both the consumer and the environment.”
Victor Group is a leading North American-based textile company specializing in sustainable and innovative fabrics designed for the contract, residential, outdoor, apparel and specialty markets.
