Recycled Fibers

June 1, 2010

With the introduction of two additions to its SafeLeigh line of fire-retardant, recycled fibers, Leigh Fibers has extended those benefits to many more spinning and nonwoven applications. SafeLeigh Natural and SafeLeigh Premium are predominantly meta-aramid and made with 100% recycled post-industrial materials.

SafeLeigh meta-aramid recycled fibers are ideal for flame-retardant fabrics and other heat shielding applications. They are suitable for coarse yarn spinning and for the nonwoven fabrics used in bedding, filtration and many other products. SafeLeigh Natural is a natural colored fiber while SafeLeigh Premium is a multicolored fiber.

SafeLeigh recycled fibers help manufacturers meet flame retardant standards without the use of chemical additives. They are high-quality, cost-effective alternatives for companies who want to capitalize on the growing consumer demand for environmentally-friendly products.

Leigh Fibers offers a wide array of recycled materials, including technical, synthetic and natural fibers, textile by-products, and single- and multi-polymer materials for plastic applications. All products are custom-blended to meet specific customer needs, with special attention to consistency, quality and cost-effectiveness.
