Unifi Inc, a leading producer of multi-filament polyester and nylon textured yarns, is pleased to announce that Momentum Textiles, a leading supplier of contract textiles, has selected REPREVE FR for a line of healthcare privacy curtains. REPREVE FR is the most recent product addition to Unifi's family of recycled fibers and is the first recycled polyester fiber with inherent and permanent flame retardant technology.

"In continuing to evolve the REPREVE brand family, we recognized the market need for a recycled fiber with inherent flame retardant properties," said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi.

"REPREVE FR provides our customers with a sustainable textile solution while utilizing a proven flame retardant technology. We are happy that Momentum Textiles has chosen this new product for a line of healthcare privacy curtains and we look forward to working with them in an effort to expand their REPREVE FR product offering."

"The inherent performance of REPREVE FR provides Momentum Textiles with an environmental solution for our line of healthcare privacy curtains," said Eddie Elizondo, marketing manager for Momentum Group.

"We are committed to expanding our environmentally responsible product offering to meet the market's need for sustainable textiles."

REPREVE FR will be used in Momentum Textiles' new healthcare privacy curtain collection and will initially consist of two patterns, Betula and Perennial. Unifi has coupled the demonstrated consistency and reliability of recycled REPREVE with a durable inherent fire retardant technology. The fire retardant component of REPREVE FR is embedded in the molecular structure of the recycled polymer, and will withstand multiple industrial launderings, unlike a topical treatment that can wash away in just a few launderings.

Additionally, fabrics made with REPREVE FR have been shown to pass a wide range of flammability tests and is suitable for a number of end uses including hospital privacy curtains, drapes, upholstery and industrial applications. Because REPREVE FR is made from recycled materials, it reduces energy consumption and conserves petroleum-based resources by offsetting the need to produce virgin polyester.
