German company Dimension-Polyant launches sustainable fabrics
Recycled polyester fiber is made from discarded PET bottles from the United States. As with all X-Pac materials, RX laminates are manufactured at Dimension-Polyant’s plant in Putnam, CT, which is 100% climate neutral, Dimension-Polyant said in its press release.
âEvery detail has been thought out and taken into account when making our sustainable collection of RX fabrics,â said Taylor North, Technical Fabrics Manager, Dimension-Polyant. âIt was essential that our RX recycled material was sourced from nationally sourced recycled PET to align with domestic manufacturing in our climate neutral factory to minimize our environmental impact. We are proud to have achieved the Cradle-to-Door Climate Neutral Certificate for our RX range of fabrics, which we believe is the first and only climate neutral laminate designed for bags.
German manufacturer Dimension-Polyant has announced the launch of its new range of durable RX fabrics, certified as climate neutral from cradle to door and bearing the company’s cleenTEC seal. Ready to take on the elements, X-Pac RX 3-layer laminates are made with a 100% post-consumer polyester outer fabric and X-PLY backing.
X-Pac RX 3-Layer Laminates feature its distinct X-PLY fiber reinforcement technology for an innovative three-layer construction that is tough, flexible and 100% waterproof. A lighter weight polyester film backing provides an elegant technical look.
Dimension-Polyant’s production facilities in Putnam, CT and Kempen, Germany have been 100% climate neutral since early 2021. Carbon emissions have been recorded under DIN ISO 50001 and significantly reduced through use of green electricity, green gas and other measures. All remaining emissions are reduced by our climate compensation program in cooperation with ClimatePartner and its Plastic Free Oceans climate protection project.
Dimension-Polyant minimizes its environmental impact by producing the highest quality, durable materials to help keep products out of landfill. To help consumers identify its environmentally friendly materials, Dimension-Polyant has developed its cleenTEC seal. Materials bearing the cleenTEC seal are guaranteed to be climate neutral and include recycled or bio-based components.
âWe are really excited about our new RX line because the feedback from brand partners has been very positive,â said North. âThe RX fabric line is the first of many environmentally friendly packaging materials on our path to developing long-lasting and sustainable material solutions to help brands create the best packaging possible. “
