100% recycled Polartec Power Fill is presently available in 80 and 100 g/mÂ² weights, with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification.

The manufacturer quotes that, â€œLong a leader in sustainable fabrics, Polartec has now upcycled over one billion post consumer plastic bottles into hundreds of fabric styles and category-creating platforms.â€
Gary Smith, Polartec CEO said that, â€œFinding sustainable solutions is a core objective of our science of fabric.â€ He also added that, â€Weâ€™re proud to have â€˜cracked the codeâ€™ required to produce premium quality insulation from 100% PCR materials.â€
Polartec Power Fill is warm, lightweight package insulation that is hydrophobic, fast-drying, and highly compressible. Polartec Power Fill is made of proprietary hollow fibres that are bonded together through a process that is said to reduce environmental impact, while at the same time providing superior insulating properties, durability and hand. This process also results in a more stable layer, removing the need for disposable scrims, stabilising agents, or carriers used by some competing insulations. Unnecessary scrims add weight and may not be made from recycled content, possibly skewing warmth-to-weight ratios and recycled content measurements, the company reports. By eliminating the need for a wasteful scrim, Polartec Power Fill is said to be warmer for its weight, reduces cold spots and aesthetic changes from migrating fibres, and opens up countless design possibilities.
A leading provider of innovative textile solutions, Polartec, launches the upgraded Polartec Power Fill insulation, now made from 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.
According to the company, this fill insulation was introduced with 80% recycled content just one year ago, and now has reached this sought after landmark more quickly than previously thought possible.
