Universal Fibers Extends Industrial Fibers Color Pallet

Bristol, Va.-based Universal Fibers Inc., a manufacturer of solution-dyed man-made-fiber yarn for
carpet, transportation, interior, industrial and medical applications has added colors to its range
of industrial fibers. There are now more than 120 core color choices and millions of possible color
combinations, according to the company.

“Our color story is one of the things that sets us apart,” said Bill Goodman, vice president
of sales and marketing, Universal Fibers. “We’re changing the mind-set in the industrial fibers
market that colors have to be limited. We want to provide our customers with a wide range of
possibilities in strength and color for their products and through our customization process we’ll
work with them to provide the perfect fiber to fill their need.”

Universal Fibers’ industrial fibers – including nylon 6, nylon 6,6, polyester and
polypropylene – are available in a denier count of 420 or greater. The fibers can be manufactured
to product specifications to include features such as ultraviolet stability; antimicrobial
characteristics; high-modulus and low-shrinkage capabilities; and flame and stain resistance.
