CHARLOTTE, N.C. — November 8, 2010 — Consolidated Fibers has signed a definitive agreement to be
the exclusive supplier of Basofil® staple fiber in North America. Basofil® is an advanced
technology melamine fiber designed to blend with commodity and synergistic fibers. Key physical
properties of Basofil® are:

  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Superior Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) value
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Ultraviolet (UV) radiation resistance

Competing fiber blends and alternative flame resistant methodology cannot match the
protective performance, value and versatility of Basofil®. Basofil® offers permanent and non-toxic
protection allowing the development of FR and high temperature products that are safe, compliant
and competitively priced. Visit to learn more.

“There is a growing need for protective and thermally stable materials that are cost
effective for filtration, insulation, protective apparel and structural end uses. With Basofil®,
cost reduction does not have to mean a performance drop, especially when coupled with other fibers
that we offer. Disrupting status quo like this is one of the ways Consolidated Fibers offers the
best value in fiber solutions,”says Paul Latten, Division President.
