Coville uses strataTek knitting technology for AM/P2 Collection

Coville takes polypropylene to a new level in performance apparel with the introduction of printed and eco-friendly fabrics using strataTek knitting technology, made by Alandale Knitting Company.

The patented strataTek technology offers a new, innovative fabric featuring the combination of two fibers in a double knit construction for both performance and sustainability.

Coville uses this technology to combine Innova antimicrobial polypropylene, manufactured exclusively by American Fibers and Yarns Company, with materials such as organic cotton.

The resulting fabrics, part of the AM/P2 Collection, demonstrate how polypropylene can now be used in fabrics that are printed, environmentally sustainable, and that enhance the performance of other traditional fibers.

For printed applications, Innova polypropylene is placed on the underside of the strataTek platform, while the print substrate fiber is used as the face yarn.

The face side is then printed using a unique process developed specifically for this product. This offers a fashionable, yet high performing garment utilizing polypropylene's inherent performance against the skin.

The inherent attributes of the AM/P2 Collection using Innova polypropylene that will last the life of the fabric include:
- Inherently stain resistant
- Color fast. Will not fade over time or from bleach
- Antimicrobial
- Bacteria and odor resistant
- Moisture management
- Thermal regulation
- Quick drying to save energy and money
- Environmental friendly

The AM/P2 Collection offers a sustainable alternative not currently offered in the marketplace. The product line focuses not only on performance, but also environmental stewardship and sustainability.

The face yarn is made of natural and organic fibers, while the innermost polypropylene fiber boasts earth friendly characteristics as well.

The manufacturing process of Innova requires significantly less heat and water consumption, does not require harmful topical treatments to achieve performance, and can be recycled and regenerated toward the production of new, durable goods.

The AM/P2 Collection will debut at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market to be held in Salt Lake City, UT on August 8-11, 2008. Both Coville and American Fibers and Yarns Company will be exhibiting at this year's show.
