PCIAW® Trusted Member, Daletec, speaks of its innovative APEX FR product that has a lower environmental impact with its OEKO-TEX certified production.
The need for environmental sustainability gained a lot of traction in the last decade of the 21st century. Back in 2015, the world leaders understood the need to set global goals (SDGs) to create a better world by 2030.
As a responsible supplier, Daletec aims to contribute towards the betterment of society by implementing eco-friendly practices to produce specialised technical protective fabrics. Supporting the SDGs goal, Daletec participated in this ideology and took part in a better cotton initiative in 2017 with the set target to convert all its product range to 100% BCI.
Daletec APEX FR helps to reduce the company’s environmental footprint
Through this step, Daletec played its part in reducing carbon footprints through its supply chain to promote measurable and continuing improvements for the environment, farming communities and the economies of cotton-producing areas. By the end of the first quarter of 2018, both pure cotton fabrics and cotton/polyester blends of the Daletec range were made using BCI cotton.
Daletec production facility is OEKO TEX STeP certified with the highest class 3. The production facility is creating an impact with sustainable textile production with OEKO TEX 100 certified product range of technical fabrics.
OEKO TEX STeP is one of the most reliable certification processes, warranting distinction in all production processes, from eco-friendly products to socially acceptable working conditions. It covers all relevant aspects, such as social responsibility, health & safety, chemical management, environmental protection, quality management and environmental management.
The Daletec portfolio includes both treated FR fabric solutions and inherent FR solutions to serve global demands.
APEX is the new addition to our IFR product range and is part of Daletec’s initiative to move towards the improvement from conventional synthetic rich inherent blends towards more organic-rich innovative blends.
Through an intelligent blend mix and specialised technology, APEX offers maximum protection and comes with excellent comfort.
Daletec APEX has major content of cellulosic fibre which brings excellent air regulation, moisture management and wicking, which makes Apex ideal for hot and humid climates and minimises risks of heat strokes.
