Poole Co. Launches EcoSure® Full-Circle, ComFortrel By Poole

Poole Co., Greenville, now offers the EcoSure® Full-Circle Program to take back any item made 100-percent using its EcoSure 100-percent post-consumer recycled polyethylene terephthalate staple fiber and recycle it again into new fiber. The program is targeted to textile distributors and manufacturers.

The process can be repeated over and over, theoretically keeping the materials out of landfills forever. EcoSure's recycled fiber content has been certified under Emeryville, Calif.-based Scientific Certification Systems' SCS Recycled Content Certification Program.

In other news, 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.

The new fiber can be dyed atmospherically at 212°F, potentially with reduced chemical usage. Features include durability; easy care; 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.
