Liberty is a spunbond polypropylene fabric capped with polypropylene staple fiber which is needled into the spunbond.
It is manufactured by a unique process in which continuous filaments of polypropylene are spun and then immediately formed into a multi-directional arranged web that is heat-bonded at filament crossover points. Liberty™ spunbond polypropylene textiles are harmless to your health and do not pollute the environment, neither in production nor in use. Because the Liberty™ is made of 100% polypropylene, with no binders or fillers, it can be easily recycled. Custom recycling programs can be easily set up, and The Acme Group can help your company facilitate a true Zero-Landfill, use-to-reuse recycling program.

Dymetrol is used in private planes, jets and commercial jetliners currently, including many of the world’s largest commercial airlines, where it provides efficient and comfortable lightweight airline seating solutions for pilots, crew and all passengers over millions of miles flown daily.
