Polartec, the premium provider of innovative textile solutions and inventor of modern synthetic fleece, has introduced upgraded Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation, now made from 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials. This best-in-class fill insulation led the industry when it was introduced with 80% recycled content just one year ago, and now has reached this sought-after milestone more quickly than previously thought possible. 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.
Polartec® Power Fill™ is warm, lightweight package insulation that is hydrophobic, fast-drying, and highly compressible. Polartec® Power Fill™ is made of proprietary hollow fibers that are bonded together through a process that reduces environmental impact, while simultaneously providing superior insulating properties and durability.
This unique process also results in a more stable layer, removing the need for disposable scrims, stabilizing agents, or carriers used by some competing insulations. By eliminating the need for a wasteful scrim, Polartec® Power Fill™ is warmer for its weight, reduces cold spots and aesthetic changes from migrating fibers, and opens up countless design possibilities.
