Aurora Specialty Textiles Group Inc. has announced the addition of Encore FR™ to its Weaves of Green™ line of 100 percent recycled polyester fabrics. Made from post-consumer plastic drink bottles, Encore FR is the most substantive fabric in the Weaves Of Green collection, constructed of spun yarns which give it the drape and hand of a natural fiber fabric but with the rugged texture and the durability of polyester.
The fabric is treated to meet the NFPA 701 small-scale flammability standard for indoor use, but is also durable enough for short-term outdoor use. It’s compatible with sublimation transfer and UV cure printing and is currently available in 100 yard rolls, 58 inches wide. Possible applications include office and home dÃ©cor, custom upholstery, window graphics, retail POP and indoor/outdoor signs and banners. Printed hand samples and sample rolls are available.
