Bella-Dura announces five-year warranty
Staff Staff -- Casual Living, May 15, 2007
Wearbest Sil-Tex Mills, Inc., the makers of Bella-Dura performance fabrics, has increased its warranty to five years for all Bella-Dura residential fabrics. The warranty is guaranteed by American Fibers and Yarns, who produces the proprietary Bella-Dura yarn and Wearbest Sil-Tex Mills, the weavers of the fabric.
Other features of Bella-Dura fabrics include a minimum of 1,500 hours lightfastness, bleach cleanability, a minimum of 50,000 double rubs, anti-microbial resistance, mildew resistance, inherent stain resistance and water repellence.
"The overwhelming success of the initial launch led to much more development with AF&Y, and it became clear through our testing data, that the fabrics would far exceed the initial tests." said Irwin Gasner, president and CEO of Wearbest. "We felt compelled to expand the initial three year residential warranty to five years, to guarantee to our customer base that the performance features of Bella-Dura were unsurpassed."
The companies are working on other yarns for different fabric constructions, to be added during 2007.
