Foss Manufacturing to introduce Ecospun high-quality polyester fiber

14
May '07
Foss Manufacturing Company a leading designer and manufacturer of non-woven fabrics and specialty synthetic fibers,introduces its Ecospun high-quality polyester fiber.

Made from 100 percent certified recycled plastic PET bottles, the fiber is chemically and functionally superior to that of non-recycled competitors.

Ecospun can also be blended with the company's patented Fosshield antimicrobial fiber technology to create durable and natural antimicrobial fabrics.

Ecospun fiber can be added to any textile product, including clothing, blankets, auto interiors, carpets, wall coverings, home furnishings, and craft felt. By blending this recycled fiber with its Fosshield antimicrobial technology, Foss has created a unique antimicrobial fiber blend.

Fosshield is an all-natural bicomponent polyester fiber that includes a built-in, silver- and copper-based inorganic antimicrobial additive.

When woven or needle-punched into fabrics, this blend effectively inhibits the growth of destructive bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus while maintaining all the environmentally-friendly aspects of Ecospun.

With the creation of Ecospun, Foss Manufacturing continues to lead the way to "green" manufacturing in the textile industry.

Because roughly ten bottles comprise one pound of fiber, the production of Ecospun can keep nearly three billion plastic PET bottles out of world landfills each year, saving over half a million barrels of oil and eliminating 400,000 tons of harmful air emissions.
