Polartec, the premium provider of innovative textile solutions, has introduced the upgraded Polartec Power Fill insulation, made from 100 per cent post-consumer recycled materials. This best-in-class fill insulation led the industry when it was introduced with 80 per cent recycled content a one year ago, and now has reached this sought after milestone.

Polartec Power Fill is made of proprietary hollow fibres that are bonded together through a process that reduces environmental impact, while simultaneously providing superior insulating properties, durability and hand. It is warm, lightweight package insulation that is hydrophobic, fast-drying, and highly compressible.

This unique process also results in a more stable layer, removing the need for disposable scrims, stabilising agents, or carriers used by some competing insulations. Unnecessary scrims add weight and may not be made from recycled content, possibly skewing warmth-to-weight ratios and recycled content measurements. By eliminating the need for a wasteful scrim, Polartec Power Fill is warmer for its weight, reduces cold spots and aesthetic changes from migrating fibres, and opens up countless design possibilities. Long a leader in sustainable fabrics, Polartec has now upcycled over one billion post-consumer plastic bottles into hundreds of fabric styles and category-creating platforms.

"Finding sustainable solutions is a core objective of our science of fabric. We’re proud to have ‘cracked the code’ required to produce premium quality insulation from 100 per cent PCR materials," said Gary Smith, Polartec CEO.

 100 per cent recycled Polartec Power Fill is currently available in 80 and 100 g/m² weights, with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Polartec Power Fill products are currently available from customers Bight Gear and Triple Aught Design, with product also planned from Blackyak, Crazy Idea, Giro, Goldwin, Millet, P1G-Tac, Reusch and Samas.
