Textile Insight highlights Ariaprene™Thu, April 18, 2013
Textile Insight interviewed Andrew Dent, VP of the materials library at Material Connexion, about the new materials available in their library. Here’s what he said about Ariaprene: “Ariaprene is a perforated closed-cell foam laminated to sheer or opaque fabrics. Engineered perforations reduce weight; provide structure, flexibility and breathability. The material is readily recyclable and outperforms synthetic rubber with better insulation, weight, stretch, compression and temperature tolerance.” We appreciate the shout out, especially coming from a well respected material scientist such as Andrew Dent.
