​Duvaltex Launches Its New Clean Impact Textiles™ Collection
03/06/2019 - Duvaltex will introduce its new CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ Collection at Neocon, Chicago, June 10-12, 2019. This not only represents the first Recycled Biodegradable Polyester textile for commercial interiors, but also a major step forward in establishing an advanced bi-circular economy model for textiles whereby polyester fabric, at the end of its useful life, can flow through either a biological or technical cycle.
 
This innovative technology allows Duvaltex to create high performance fabrics that are long-wearing in commercial interiors, but that can biodegrade in landfills and wastewater conditions at a rate similar to that of natural fibers (tested under ASTM D5511). This is achieved through the addition of a bio-catalyst in the yarn extrusion process that enables anaerobic digestion in landfill and wastewater treatment conditions.

In addition, since the fabrics in this collection were designed and manufactured for recyclability, as are many of the Duvaltex products, these polyester fabrics can also flow through a technical cycle, to be recycled and used as raw materials for future generations of polyester fabrics.
 
Eco-efficiency at its best!
This innovative collection of commercial fabrics addresses the daunting problem of how to deal with polyester fabric waste at the end of its useful life, offering both a biological and technical solution. 'Based on the alarming statistics regarding the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfills, this collection of fabrics represents eco-efficiency by design at its best, and a crucial step in reducing the negative impact of a linear economy,' says Alain Duval, CEO of Duvaltex.

Duvaltex has been one of the leading manufacturers of sustainable textiles for over 20 years, having made significant advances in their manufacturing practices and processes, as well as their product development with respect to sustainability. One of their ongoing sustainable initiatives over the years was how to implement viable solutions for managing textile waste. 'As new technologies and systems are being developed, there are now multiple options for dealing with polyester textile waste, with this collection of fabrics establishing a new model, capable of either a biological or technical cycle at the end of its useful life,' says Mr. Duval.
 
Design without compromise
Designed and manufactured to conform to the strict performance requirements of the Contract textiles market, Duvaltex's CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ Collection meets or exceeds the ACT performance standards for heavy duty upholstery. The patterns that make up this collection were designed for specification across a wide range of seating applications, with one pattern developed for multipurpose use for seating, panels, free-standing screens, and acoustic panels.

This collection is made up of five coordinating upholstery patterns, each showcasing a different perspective on the play of horizontal and vertical lines, from a classic grid to overlapping lines to a subtle in-and-out criss-cross effect.

These 'softened' geometrics range in scale from high impact oversized to midscale multicolor to small overall texture. The fabrics are presented in a range of colors from deep saturated blues to forest greens, desert mesa reds, and comforting corals along with coordinating neutrals from light to dark. The interaction of the different scales and textures in these soothing yet vivid colors create a warm, welcoming, and rich environment that helps to engage and relax the end user.
 
Launching at NeoCon 2019 (June 10-12), booth 9041, 7th floor
The CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ collection will be commercially available through office furniture OEM’s and Textile Marketers in the fall of 2019. A technical whitepaper addressing this new technology will be available, as well as E-Books on Duvaltex’s history of leadership in sustainability, and Clean Impact Textiles™.
