Poole Co. Offers ComFortrel Copolymer Polyester Fiber
Greenville-based fiber manufacturer Poole Co. reports its ComFortrel by Poole engineered copolymer
polyester fiber offers performance equal to or exceeding that of the original ComFortrel fiber
previously offered by Wellman Inc., which has gone out of business.
According to David Poole, CEO, Poole Co., ComFortrel by Poole is being welcomed by textile manufacturers. "The product gives consumers a breathable, moisture wicking, feel-good fiber that is technically advanced and has atmospherically dyeable properties," he said.
The new fiber can be dyed atmospherically at 212°F, potentially with reduced chemical usage. Features include durability; easy care and good shape retention; fast-drying properties; shrink, fade and wrinkle resistance; soft hand; and low pilling properties. Potential markets include activewear, childrenswear, sportswear and hosiery.
