Superior Fabrics Introduces Fleecelock Nonwovens

Superior Fabrics Inc., Pompano Beach, Fla., has developed Fleecelock, a new nonwoven
fabric.Fleecelock fabrics, constructed of 100-percent polyester staple fibers using a modified
stitchbond process, have similar properties to those of a traditional stitchbond fabric, but do not
use a separate yarn system.The fabrics are available in weights ranging from 2 to 8 ounces per
square yard and may be dyed using finishing techniques used for other polyester fabrics. To add a
soft back or to create a bulky, soft fabric, Fleecelock is ideal for laminating to other fabric
composites, according to Superior.
