Aurora Specialty Textiles Group Inc. has announced the addition of Premium Poplin FR to its Northern Lights Printable Textiles line. Premium Poplin FR is engineered to be compatible with inkjet UV and Dye-Sub transfer print technologies. Made of 100 pecent polyester and constructed in a tight poplin weave, Premium Poplin FR weights 5.8 oz/sqyd and is 14 mils thick. The FR treatment meets the NFPA 701 flammability standard. Premium Poplin FR is available in 60-inch and 120-inch widths by 100 yard rolls.
Adding to its Weaves of Green line of recycled printable textiles, Aurora launched RePlay2 and RePlay2 FR. Made from 100 percent post consumer polyester, RePlay2 and RePlay2 FR are a light weight 4.6 oz/sqyd poplin like weave, with a smooth bright white finish. Both are compatible with inkjet UV and Dye-Sub transfer print technologies. RePlay2 FR is treated to meet NFPA 701 flammability standard. Both RePlay2 and RePlay2 FR are available in 60-inch and 120-inch widths by 100 yard rolls. RePlay2 and RePlay2 FR join Act II and Act II FR in Aurora's "green" line of recycled options.
"What's exciting about our Weaves of Green textiles is that when coupled with our Fabrecycle program our customers can keep the recycle chain going. All they have to do is send us their scrap or discarded prints from Aurora's line of 100 percent polyester textiles. We will place this back into the recycle stream where it can be made into other useful products such as carpet padding and filler insulation," said Mike Richardson, director of marketing ? Print Media.
Premium Poplin FR, RePlay2 and RePlay2 FR will be on display at the Aurora Specialty Textiles Group booth #3560 at the ISA Expo in Las Vegas.
