TOTOWA, N.J. – Precision Textiles, a supplier of coated fabrics, nonwoven and laminations, is expanding its line of glass-free FR solutions for the bedding industry with its first application that fits over the foam core of a mattress like a fitted sheet.
The new EcoFlex EZ-Fit Cap is also easier for production employees to work with and enables manufacturers to have greater flexibility in the type of ticking they use, the company said.
EcoFlex EZ-Fit Cap features elasticized edges, slips over the top of the foam core and fits around the mattress core.
“The new EcoFlex EZ-Fit Cap helps streamline bedding manufacturing and delivers a safer sleep experience,” said Keith Martin, vice president of Precision Textiles. “One person can apply the cap in half of the time that it typically takes two employees to apply a sock, lessening production time. Staying in line with our original innovation with EcoFlex, this new product remains a glass-free, chemical-free alternative to other FR solutions in the market.”
Precision Textiles introduced its EcoFlex earlier this year. OekoTek Standard 100-certified and made with inherent FR rayon, the EcoFlex line offers four-way stretch and recovery and resists breakdown when tested on rollators or rolled for packing boxed beds, officials said.
