Unifi Launches Repreve® FR

Greensboro, N.C.-based Unifi Inc. - a producer of multifilament polyester and nylon textured yarns - has launched Repreve® FR, the newest addition to its Repreve family of 100-percent recycled fibers. Repreve FR, containing at least 2,000 parts per million phosphorus, is the first recycled polyester fiber with inherent flame-retardant (FR) properties.

Momentum Textiles - a supplier of contract textiles and a division of the Irvine, Calif.-based Momentum Group - will use Repreve FR in its new line of healthcare privacy curtains.

"The inherent performance of Repreve FR provides Momentum Textiles with an environmental solution for our line of healthcare privacy curtains," said Eddie Elizondo, marketing manager, Momentum Group. "We are committed to expanding our environmentally sustainable product offering to meet the market's need for sustainable textiles."
