- This super light, super warm, heat-reflective blanket, manufactured by Advanced Flexible Materials Inc., is made from metalized low density polyethylene (LDPE), and is 1 millimeter thick (or 0.001 inch). The reflective layer in Heatsheets® blankets reflect up to 97% of body’s radiant heat right back to the user, creating an envelope of warm air. Heatsheets are recyclable, and can be printed. Heatsheets® are made and printed in California, where state law (AB 455) prohibits the use of heavy metals in inks or materials. Most of the inks used are water based (as opposed to solvents), minimizing air pollution.
- Hollofil 808®, made by Invista, is a high-loft insulation designed
for optimum warmth and comfort, yet is durable and refluffable.
Its special blend of hollow core fibers trap more air and provide
greater warmth without added weight. It is 20% warmer than
solid-core insulations of equal weight. Made from 100% pre-
consumer recycled polyester, it is machine washable/dryable and
is non-allergenic. End uses include outerwear and sleeping bags.
- HOLLOFIL®II, made by Invista, is a high-loft insulation designed
to be compact and soft, yet resilient and refluffable. It provides
increased warmth through DuPonts patented blend of four-hole
polyester fibers. A softer insulation, it conforms to body shape
for greater comfort, is machine washable/dryable, and is
nonallergenic. It is 20% warmer than unbranded solid-core
insulation of equal weight, and retains its warmth when damp.
End uses include outerwear and sleeping bags.

- AquaTex manufacturers Hydroweave®, a revolutionary new Performance Enhancing Fabric (PEF) that provides active evaporative cooling, improving wearer performance for up to eight hours. This patented lightweight composite fabric is available in standard and flame-resistant versions to fit a broad-range of industrial garment applications. The flame-resistant version of Hydroweave is well suited for use in lightweight garments for racing, fire fighting and other high-heat applications, demonstrating an equivalent Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) rating greater than 150.
- Moisture-responsive fabrics produced through the use of the Hygro™ process. In this research, the reversible dimensional changes of hygroscopic yarns are utilized to develop responsive fabric structures which widen or narrow their openings depending on moisture content. The process is also used to make terry toweling fabric. In this process, the pile yarn is woven with cotton weft and warp yarns to produce terry fabrics. The fabric is then washed in warm water to dissolve the PVA fibers. By dissolving the PVA fibers, a hollow air space is produced throughout the pile yarn, corresponding to an increase in the air space in the pile yarn. By increasing the air space in the pile yarn, the resulting towels are softer and bulkier than standard cotton towels.
