Rhovyl Fibers Make Comfortable Bedding

Rhovyl has created two fibers that are being used for comfortable bedding products.According to the company, products made with RhovylAS® anti-bacterial and RhovylA.S.+® feature a variety of benefits including: thermal insulation, non-flammability, anti-bacterial effectiveness and anti-dust mite action.The natural non-flammability derives from the basic polymer used and provides effective protection from fire risks. The two fibers are also the right answer where warmth and perfect protection from the cold are required, along with good evacuation of natural moisture, the company says.RhovylA.S.+ eliminates the dust mites that are the cause of most allergies. Both fibers prevent the development of bacteria thanks to the antibacterial agent introduced into the core of the fiber before extrusion.Because of the strong bond between molecules of the polymer and the anti-bacterial and anti-dust mite agents, RhovylAS anti-bacterial and RhovylA.S.+ fibers retain their properties permanently, even after frequent washing.The new fibers can be used directly in blown carded laps or bubble stuffing for articles of bedding, as well as mattress covers and undersheets either knitted or nonwoven sheets, quilt covers and pillow cases.
