Evolon New Generation receives ECARF seal of quality

Evolon New Generation made by Freudenberg has been awarded the prestigious European seal of quality for anti-mite bedding items. The innovative fabric, which has only recently entered the market, meets the stringent testing criteria in terms of filtration performance and sleeping comfort.

The seal of the independent European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) aims to help allergic patients select the appropriate goods and services, by certifying the quality of products as well as services according to strict standards.

Evolon New Generation is made from super-microfilaments that are half the thickness and twice the density of those used in the original Evolon. This increases its filtration performance significantly, the manufacturer explains.

“Furthermore, thanks to a perfect balance of breathability, permeability to water vapor and thermal insulation, Evolon New Generation provides the best combination of thermo-physiological properties for unparalleled comfort. Evolon New Generation’s properties and protection deliver constant performance even after repeated washings at 95°C,” the company says.

“Whereas the original Evolon was already a perfect solution for the manufacture of anti-mite encasings that help allergy sufferers, Evolon New Generation now provides a specific solution to make feather-filled pillows and quilts, filtering even tinier allergens and dust particles. With its premium appearance and luxury feel, Evolon New Generation creates also a new product for anti-allergy top-quality bed linen.”

Evolon New Generation has also been granted the Oeko-Tex mark (Standard 100, product class 1, attachment 6), which certifies it is free of harmful substances and suitable for contact with baby skin.

Ten years ago, in 2008, the original version of Evolon had already been the first fabric for anti-mite encasings worldwide to be ECARF-accredited.
