Aurora Specialty Textiles Group Inc. has announced the addition of Encore FR to its Weaves of Green line of 100 percent recycled polyester fabrics. Made from post-consumer plastic drink bottles, Encore FR is the most substantive fabric in the Weaves Of Green collection. Encore FR is constructed of spun yarns which give it the drape and hand of a natural fiber fabric but with a rugged texture and the durability of polyester. Encore FR is treated to meet the NFPA 701 small scale flammability standard for indoor use but is also durable enough for short term outdoor use. Encore FR is compatible with sublimation transfer and UV cure printing and is currently available in 100 yard rolls, 58 inches wide. Possible applications include but are not limited to office and home décor, custom upholstery, window graphics, retail POP and indoor/outdoor sign and banner. Printed hand samples and sample rolls are available.
"Giving our customers more options when it comes to environmentally friendly products is what we are all about," said Mike Richardson, director of sales/marketing – Print Media.
