Freudenberg to show new innovations at ISPO Munich 2021

Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel (Freudenberg) is expanding its product portfolio for the sports and outdoor market. In addition to comfortemp® thermal insulation, the leading manufacturer of technical textiles is now offering sustainable, highly elastic and breathable inserts and tapes for all types of sportswear with the Freudenberg Active Range. Freudenberg is also showing comfortemp® FLEXX, the first adaptive thermal insulation with elastic reinforcement elements, at the digital ISPO Munich 2021 from 1 to 5, February, 2021 at www.ispo.com

 

Sustainability is an integral part of Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel's business activities. For example, the company recycles around seven million used PET bottles every day, making it one of the largest recyclers of used PET bottles in Europe. This is also reflected in the Freudenberg Active Range: Most products are made from at least 70 per cent recycled polyester. Thanks to their highly developed adhesive polymers, selected products in the series are ideally suited for complex and difficult-to-process outer fabrics. Highly elastic outer fabrics retain their flexibility despite being fixed and remain breathable. This is ensured by a special technology with which the adhesive material is applied to a carrier material in the form of small dots without a base material.

 

New: comfortemp® FLEXX

 

With comfortemp® FLEXX, Freudenberg is launching the first adaptive insulation made from warming and breathable padding with elastic reinforcement elements for high levels of sports activity. It is ideal for outdoor sportswear for cycling, running and skiing and is made of 95 percent recycled polyester. If the wearer moves, the padding expands, is thin, extremely air-permeable and breathable. If the movement comes to a standstill, it contracts again and meets all the requirements for high-performance thermal insulation for sports and outdoor clothing. It keeps you warm even when wet. comfortemp® FLEXX has an outstanding stretch content of up to 20 per cent.

 

Consistent quality, easy processing

 

The innovative processing of the padding with reinforcement threads prevents fibre migration through the outer fabric and is offered by the meter. This reduces production time and processing costs for clothing manufacturers. The new padding meets the OEKO-TEX standard. comfortemp® FLEXX was chosen in the TOP 5 of the ISPO TexTrends.
