Montebello, Calif. (July 30, 2014)--Allied Feather & Down, the outdoor industry’s primary supplier and processor of down, introduces its newest proprietary down technology; a fluorocarbon-free water resistant down called HyperDRY ECO. HyperDRY ECO is Allied’s latest development in water resistant down technology and environmental responsibility.
Allied worked closely with bluesign® system partners to develop the fluorocarbon-free treatment to apply to its down that adheres to all bluesign®-approved chemistry standards. Developed for some of the most demanding technical brands, HyperDRY ECO exhibits an optimal blend of water resistance, fill power, durability, cleanliness, and washability while diminishing its impact on the environment.
“We are mindful of our footprint on the Earth, which is why we implement many environmentally conscious initiatives into our business practices,” said Daniel Uretsky, COO of Allied Feather & Down. “HyperDRY ECO is the next progression of our commitment to the environment.”
HyperDRY ECO fluorocarbon-free technology can be applied to Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified down, offering one of the most environmentally conscious and responsibly developed down products on the market.
HyperDRY ECO is available immediately and can be used with Allied’s BioDown anti microbial down technology as well as F X Down, a hybrid down and synthetic blend. Vendors interested in blending options, samples for testing, and pricing should contact Daniel Uretsky, Daniel@alliedfeather.net.
