ECO INTELLIGENT POLYESTER & ECO INTELLIGENT POLYESTER FR:

FOLLOW THE SAME ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

HERE'S WHY:
  • MBDC - Cradle to Cradle Product Gold Certified.
    All Eco Intelligent Polyester (EIP) and Eco Intelligent Polyester FR (EIP-FR) fabrics were developed based on MBDC's Cradle to Cradle Design Protocol for material and chemical assessment. These products have been fully assessed and, to the extent feasible, optimized for material health and safety based on the MBDC protocol. EIP and EIP-FR are designed and manufactured for optimal value recovery within closed-loop systems. Certification of a finished product also required the evaluation of energy-use quantity and quality (i.e., relative proportion of renewable energy), water-use quantity, water-effluent quality, and workplace ethics associated with manufacturing.

  • USGB's LEED Rating System (point contribution)
    Use EIP and EIP-FR Cradle to Cradle Certified products for point contribution in these three categories: Innovation in Design, Low-Emitting Materials and Local Regional Materials.
  • The first true "technical nutrient".
    Eco Intelligent Polyester is the first true "technical nutrient" textile. A "technical nutrient" is a material that remains in the closed-loop system of manufacture, reuse and recovery, maintaining its value through many product life cycles.
  • The first antimony-free polyester.
    This is the first polyester produced with all environmentally safe ingredients, including a new catalyst that replaced the heavy metal antimony, a known carcinogen. Antimony is a also toxic to the heart, lung, liver, and skin. Long-term inhalation of antimony trioxide, a by-product of polymer production, can cause bronchitis and emphysema.
  • Fully optimized dyes and chemicals.
    The product designs process for Eco Intelligent Polyester and EIP-FR began at the molecular level with every ingredient in the polyester, as well as the dyestuffs and auxiliary chemicals, analyzed and approved for human and environmental health and safety.
  • Chlorine-free polyester.
    In addition to being antimony-free, EIP and EIP-FR is free of organolhalogens (chlorine, bromine, or fluorine atoms bound to a carbon atom). Therefore, the resulting fabrics are chlorine-free, with no chlorinated dyes, auxiliaries, or other inputs either present in, or used in the manufacture, of Eco Intelligent Polyester and EIP-FR.
  • Free of PBT's
    EIP and EIP-FR fabrics are also free of PBT's. PCT's are chemicals that are Persistent (i.e. they do not biodegrade or photodegrade), Bioaccumulative (i.e. accumulate in the body tissue), and/or Toxic. The EPA has published a list of PBT's that include substances like benzoperylene, dioxin, mercury, and toxaphene (to name a few). None of these substances are present in Eco Intelligent Polyester and EIP-FR products.
  • Safety and perpetually recyclable.
    The resulting fabrics are safely and perpetually recyclable in a cradle-to-cradle life cycle, with none of the hazardous by-products present in the recycling process of traditional polyester.
  • Produced with renewable energy.
    These products are produced using renewable energy, with the utilization of hydroelectric power at some manufacturing facilities as high as 91% (the average for 2006).
