Expanding its popular IQ FIT product family, coated fabrics, nonwovens and laminations supplier Precision Textiles recently added its first all-natural, cotton FR mattress sock to the portfolio. The IQ FIT Natural is a glass-free natural alternative to FR sock solutions made with fiberglass.
The IQ FIT Natural is not only 100 percent glass-free, but is made with sustainable, renewable cotton that delivers breathability and superb moisture wicking. The cotton selected is a natural, hypoallergenic, durable, long-lasting fiber that stays strong after years of use and biodegrades when composted. Eliminating the breakdown of fiberglass and providing bedding manufacturers with a safer FR solution, each component within the new sock product was chosen for both the safety of consumers as well as the safety of the environment. The new sock is also free of para-aramid and antimony – both of which offer fire resistance but can cause respiratory and skin irritation – to ensure consumers receive an all-natural sleep experience.
“The addition of the IQ FIT Natural to our product lineup allows us to offer mattress manufacturers an all-natural cotton FR mattress sock that is free of skin irritants and harmful chemicals,” said Keith Martin, vice president of Precision Textiles. “As consumers become more health conscious about the products they’re bringing into their homes, this breathable cotton option allows bedding producers to address the consumer demand for more sustainable and natural raw materials in their mattresses.”
IQ Fit Natural is available in three adaptive sizes – twin/twin XL, full/queen and king/California king.
