Polartec unveils Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation technology
With a deep history of creation through the Science of Fabric, including the invention of the modern synthetic fleece, grid fabrics with Polartec® Power Grid®, and active insulation with Polartec® Alpha®, Polartec is regarded as the world’s foremost temperature regulation experts. Now, Polartec offers a best-in-class fill insulation technology with Polartec premium quality for cold conditions, featuring a superior combination of warmth-to-weight, durability, design flexibility, and recycled content.
Polartec® Power Fill® is a premium solution for package insulation design made from a proprietary hollow-fiber construction that is softer and more durable, forming thousands of air pockets that continuously capture and contain body heat, out of cruelty-free, 80-percent recycled content. A unique controlled melt process bonds the hollow fibers, eliminating the need for scrims or other stabilizers, while increasing durability and drapability. This gives Polartec® Power Fill™ unmatched warmth and design versatility, and the polyester fiber’s inherent hydrophobic properties also work to ensure that Polartec® Power Fill™ resists moisture absorption and dries quickly, while maintaining a high warmth to weight ratio.
