DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems announced the introduction of Natural Fire Resistant High Loft, a new innovation from DuPont™ Fire Resistant Materials using natural fibers.
“The new DuPont™ Natural Fire Resistant High Loft is an excellent value for mattress manufacturers,” said John Dottore of DuPont™ Advanced Fibers Systems. “While exhibiting exceptional thermal performance, our natural high loft product provides chemical-free comfort without sacrificing protection. This product is a great choice for mattress manufacturers who are looking for alternatives to their current chemically-treated products.”
DuPont™ Natural Fire Resistant High Loft contains no chemical coatings or topical treatments. The product consists of a wool-based barrier engineered with other fire resistant fibers and offers a natural feel, which provides resilience and loft and can be used to make a softer, more comfortable mattress. The organic, off-white color of the material is also aesthetically pleasing.
DuPont™ Fire Resistant High Loft materials can be used by manufacturers to produce mattresses that comply with California law TB603. The state of California requires that all mattresses, box springs and futons manufactured or sold on or after Jan. 1, 2005 be subject to an open-flame test standard.
“This innovation continues DuPont’s long standing commitment to safety by using science and technology with a little help from Mother Nature,” said Dottore. “And the product is also great for mattress manufacturers because it is a cost effective alternative to existing high loft products.”
All DuPont™ fire-resistant materials for mattresses undergo comprehensive testing at its state-of-the-art labs. In addition, all DuPont™ Fire Resistant Materials are produced using ISO systems and standards as the basis for product quality and consistency. Standard operating procedures for the material include regular product inspections, production facility audits, certificates of analysis sent with each roll and tracing of ingredients and rolls.
“DuPont™ Natural Fire Resistant High Loft is a great fit for mattress manufacturers who want to address consumer concerns regarding chemicals used in fire-resistant mattresses,” said Dottore. “Research by DuPont has shown consumer preference for a FR fiber technology, compared with a chemical or fiberglass solutions.”
