ANDOVER, Mass. — January 24, 2018 — Polartec will unveil Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation technology — and products made by Polartec customers using the insulation — at Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show, the outdoor recreation expo and conference to be held January 25-28, 2018, in Denver.
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 offers temperature regulation solutions. 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.
Polartec customer Triple Aught Design has become the first to market with Polartec Power Fill product via its Bastion Hoodie and M-65 liner. For Fall 2018, Polartec customers Flylow, Giro and Millet will be introducing Polartec Power Fill product of their own, which will be unveiled in the Polartec booth, #54021-UL, at Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show.
Polartec Power Fill is available in 60, 80, 100, 135, 170 and 200 gram per square meter weights.
