LATHAM, N.Y. (July 1, 2020) PrimaLoft, Inc., the leader in advanced material technology, today announced a new partnership agreement with Fiberpartner, a global supplier of stapled fibers, technical yarns and plastics. This new licensing agreement allows for Fiberpartner to develop the use of Primaloft’s groundbreaking PrimaLoft® Bio™ technology in multiple new industries.

Fiberpartner CEO, Thomas Wittrup says, “We see an increasing demand for biodegradable polyester, and consider PrimaLoft’s technology to be a game-changer. The staple fibers produced with PrimaLoft® Bio™ from Fiberpartner will be developed to supplement regular polyester fiber for use in a variety of applications. Together, we can begin the journey towards a more sustainable world.”

PrimaLoft® Bio™ is made from biodegradable*, 100% recycled fibers that break down when exposed to specific environments – such as landfills, oceans and wastewater systems. PrimaLoft® Bio™ enhances fibers to be more attractive to naturally-occurring microbes found in these environments; in so doing, fibers are broken down at a faster rate, returning polyester to natural elements. These fibers maintain their structure throughout use, only biodegrading* when exposed to the naturally-occurring microorganisms found in landfills or marine environments.

Mike Joyce, president and CEO of PrimaLoft adds, “PrimaLoft® Bio™ is an important step forward in providing sustainable solutions for microfiber pollution, throughout the entire life-cycle of a product. We are excited to begin this relationship with Fiberpartner and to bring this responsible technology to a multitude of industries.”
