Sporting goods trade show organizer, ISPO, recently announced the winners of its 2015 “Top 10 Fiber and Insulations” awards, and among the winners is global innovation company, 3M, for its featherless insulation, Thinsulate.
3M’s Thinsulate was launched in January 2014 as a new loose fill insulation alternative to natural down, designed to function similarly to natural down, but without allergens and with two times the loft when wet. Described as lightweight and highly breathable, the insulation provides extreme warmth for extreme conditions and is equal to 600-fill power.
Erik Iverson, 3M Thinsulate marketing supervisor, said, “3M Thinsulate Featherless Insulation brings real value by providing an effective and cost-effective alternative to natural down.” He added, “This innovation though is just the beginning as the 3M Thinsulate Insulation brand continues to innovate bringing newer and better products to the marketplace.”
The top insulation materials will be showcased at ISPO Textrends Forum set to take place Jan. 28-31 at ISPO Beijing and from Feb. 5-8 at ISPO Munich.
ISPO Award winning products will also receive an exclusive ISPO TEXTRENDS label to help them attract attention throughout the year.
