Climashield® Introduces New Insulation Innovations at International Techtextil Exhibition
Portfolio of products now includes flame retardant and laminated options
FRANKFURT, May 4, 2015 – Expanding its insulation product line, Climashield® today, at Techtextil (Hall 3.1, Stand J83), unveiled two new products — Climashield® FR and Lamashield. These products offer solutions for applications that require resistance to flames and enhanced breathability for performance fabrics.
“We work with our customers to create a custom insulation solution that fits their specific application and complements the other performance features that make up their insulated articles,” said Matt Schrantz, chief operating officer at Climashield®. “We identified a need in the market for flame resistant and laminated solutions, and after ensuring these products met the high quality standards of the Climashield® brand, we can now offer these two new options to customers.”
Climashield® FR insulation is designed specifically for protection against momentary exposure to flames and intense heat, whether this situation occurs in the workplace or on a military mission. Made of polyester, this new product maintains the signature properties of the Climashield® brand — durability, greater warmth at lighter weights and the ability to repel water. Unlike other flame retardant products, the manufacturing process for Climashield® FR is environmentally friendly with zero halogens or other harmful additives.
Lamashield is a laminated solution that achieves enhanced breathability, increased comfort range and unparalleled thermal efficiency for a variety of applications. The technology offering eliminates the need for quilting in manufacturing and requires no scrims, reducing cold spots and increasing warmth. Maintaining the integrity of the fabric, Lamashield, when used with breathable fabrics, allows moisture to escape so the insulated piece remains comfortable in both sedentary and active situations.
Climashield®’s signature continuous filament insulation is known for its Durable Warmth — the ability to maintain thermal efficiency no matter how many times it’s stretched, washed or packed. Made in the USA, Climashield® manufactures innovative insulation solutions for sleeping bags, outerwear, gloves, footwear and comforters and quilts.
Climashield’s North American and European team of experts will be at Techtexil, held in Frankfurt from May 4-7, 2015, in Hall 3.1, Stand J83.
