IDEAL chooses Unifi's eco-friendly repreve yarn for sustainable zippers

Jun '07
Unifi Inc jointly announced with the IDEAL Fastener Corporation (IDEAL), that IDEAL the second largest zipper manufacturer in the world, will offer eco-conscious manufacturers a new line of sustainable zippers.

The zipper tapes will be manufactured using Repreve, 100% recycled yarns by Unifi. The new eco-friendly line will be sold under IDEAL Fastener's IDEAL Earth brand, which is designed to provide customers with a solution for a complete eco-package.

The IDEAL Earth line of sustainable zippers are currently available in Coil, Delrin, and Metal, customized to meet any style or application need. IDEAL Earth zippers are available in a wide range of colors, as well as custom dye lots. Unifi's Repreve yarns will be featured throughout the entire line of IDEAL Earth sustainable zippers. Repreve is a family of polyester yarns made from 100% recycled materials. Because Repreve is made from recycled materials, it conserves natural resources by offsetting the need to produce standard polyester.

“IDEAL Fastener is committed to providing innovative solutions to address the needs of our customers,” said Nancy Benko, product development manager for IDEAL Fastener Corporation. “Unifi has achieved a level of quality and consistency in its Repreve yarn that allows our engineering team to do what they do best, which is customized zipper design. Our IDEAL Earth zippers with Repreve are the perfectsolution for eco-conscious manufacturers looking to go a step further with their earth-friendly commitment.”
