SafeLeigh Natural and SafeLeigh Premium are predominantly meta-aramid fibres and are made with 100% recycled, post-industrial materials.
Meta-aramid handles similarly to normal apparel fibres and is characterised by its excellent resistance to heat, as it neither melts nor ignites in normal levels of oxygen. It is used extensively in the production of protective apparel, air filtration, thermal and electrical insulation as well as a substitute for asbestos.
SafeLeigh Natural is a natural coloured fibre while SafeLeigh Premium is multicoloured. Both are said be suitable for coarse yarn spinning and for the nonwoven fabrics used in sectors such as bedding and filtration and other technical textile applications.
“SafeLeigh recycled fibres help manufacturers meet flame retardant standards without the use of chemical additives,” the company said. “They are high-quality, cost-effective alternatives for companies who want to capitalise 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.
