Frequently asked questions
How does PrimaLoft® Bio™ work?

Polyester is a complex molecule that naturally occurring microbes have a hard time digesting, why standard polyester does not biodegrade. PrimaLoft® Bio™ optimizes the polyester or fabric fiber with a simple sugar, making the fibers easier and more pleasant for microbes to digest. Essentially, we make your fiber a Boston Cream Donut for microbes.

Will PrimaLoft® BioTM biodegrade during usage?

No, PrimaLoft® Bio™ fiber only degrades in specific environments, such as in landfills or in the ocean. These environments are where the microorganisms that feed on the fibers live.

Can PrimaLoft® Bio™ be recycled?

Yes, PrimaLoft® Bio™ can be chemically recycled and fits perfectly in a circular lifespan, and PrimaLoft® Bio maintain a 95% yield rate through the chemical recycling process.

Will PrimaLoft® Bio™ biodegrade on shelves?

No, PrimaLoft® Bio™ only biodegrades in environments with naturally occurring microbes, such as landfills, oceans, and wastewater. PrimaLoft® Bio™ comes in normal bales and has a normal shelf life with no need for special care or treatment during storage and transportation.

Does PrimaLoft® Bio™ require a change in production set-up?

No, PrimaLoft® Bio™ has the same characteristics and performance as regular PET fibers with the same output and same whiteness, and it blends well with natural fibers.

How can we be sure it works on our set-up?

Before initiating full production, a sample is sent to 3rd party lab for an accelerated test that measures the initial behavior of the fiber. After the QC test for up to 90 days, we can verify that the technology works and the staple fibers are approved.

Can PrimaLoft® Bio™ be used for my products?

PrimaLoft® Bio™ can be added to any type of polyester and fabric fiber, from wadding, filtration, and automotive to acoustics, medical, and hygiene products.

How does PrimaLoft® Bio™ work with EU’s single-use plastic directive?

Polyester is a polymer, and therefore the end product could be considered as a “plastic”. This means that different measures from Single-Use Plastic Directive can be applied to your product.

Who else is using PrimaLoft® Bio™?

A long range of well-known brands within outdoor garments have already implemented PrimaLoft® Bio™ in their fabrics and insulation, from Patagonia and Katmandu to 4F and Ecco.

Is PrimaLoft® Bio™ scalable?

Yes, we are already commercial with BICO (low melting fibers), solid, and hollow fibers – and have no capacity issues.

Is PrimaLoft® Bio™ available today?

YES! PrimaLoft® Bio™ is already available from several locations worldwide, both virgin and recycled from a controlled supply chain. There is full capacity and delivery guarantee. And that’s why we can start fixing polyester right now.
