PrimaLoft 's biodegradable synthetic insulation and performance fabrics

PrimaLoft Bio is a biodegradable, 100% recycled synthetic insulation and performance fabric. It's made from 100% recycled content. In accelerated test conditions, PrimaLoft Bio fibers reach near complete biodegradation in under two years, while standard polyester remains almost completely intact. Independent testing has also shown that the soil left behind from the degradation process contains no plastic and remains perfectly suitable for plant growth. The fibers are degraded to 100% natural elements like water, CO2, methane, biomass, and humus.
