A number of comfortemp® solutions make use of recycled polyester fibers derived from post-consumer PET bottles and as the newest innovation, from biodegradable fibers.
comfortemp® thermal insulation products are certified to the Oeko-Tex standard – a global independent testing and certification system for textile product safety. Certificates are renewed annually and copies are available upon request.
comfortemp® fiberball padding is an innovative and sustainable alternative to down. It is made of 70 percent recycled polyester derived from post-consumer PET bottles. Its high-performance, washable and fast-drying padding is very lightweight and offers excellent insulation – as well as great breathability.
This padding has an extremely high degree of thermal insulation, is easily compressed and yet quickly recovers its full volume, time and again. This enables enhanced insulation as greater volume allows more air to be trapped. Available on rolls, comfortemp® fiberball padding also prevents cold spots at the seams and fiber migration and makes processing easier.
comfortemp® Lyocell padding is a 100% biodegradable padding made of Lyocell, a cellulose fibre gained in an environmentally friendly production process from eucalyptus wood that comes from sustainable forestry. This innovation, which completely degrades in the soil in just under 60 days, was developed in cooperation with Lenzing, the renowned fibre manufacturer.
The padding is washable and quick-drying, lightweight, keeps the body warm, is soft and extremely breathable. Thanks to its excellent moisture management, the material absorbs up to 45% body moisture and thus minimises sweating. comfortemp® Lyocell padding is available on rolls, which makes it easier to process, prevents cold bridges at the seams and fibre migration through the outer fabric.
