SOPREMA contributes to a smaller ecological footprint with a bold innovation Recycle your Jeans for a better climate
29/03/2021

In the corner of just about every wardrobe is just the right kind of material that you can use to make a contribution to a better living environment. Ecology and climate issues are dear to SOPREMA'S heart, and thanks to this focus, we now have Pavatextil P. This is a versatile insulation material made from recycled cotton, jeans in particular. With the launch of this brand new and revolutionary material, SOPREMA reaffirms its role as a frontrunner and trailblazer in the waterproofing and insulation solutions sector.

Circular construction, which involves recycling waste so that it once again becomes the raw material of a high-quality product, is one of the guiding and environmentally-friendly principles that SOPREMA holds in high regard. This focus makes the manufacturer of building solutions, a pioneer in the conception, development and production of genuinely sustainable products who regularly brings ecological innovations to the market. This dedication pays off, as is proven by SOPREMA's latest sustainable eye-catcher: Pavatextil P. And the nice thing about it is: everyone who clears out their wardrobe can do their bit to help.

Stop saying 'worn to a thread'

American gold diggers were fond of jeans, the strongest trousers they could find. The then already legendary durability of the fabric is now given a surprising extended life. Forget the expression 'worn to a thread', and think instead of it as ' the raw material of something new'. Jeans do not belong in the incinerator. The ultra-tough fabric is being given a second life as insulation material. That is in any case what SOPREMA is doing with an innovative process, and the result is amazing.

Pavatextil P is an insulation material made from recycled cotton (mainly jeans) and boasts exceptional qualities. Collected cotton and jeans are selected, unravelled and reused in an ecologically optimised production process that uses renewable energy sources as much as possible.

Extra comfort in the home

The recycled cotton fibres are processed into incredibly soft insulation panels that keep things cosy and warm in winter and refreshingly cool in summer. This is reflected in the energy bills. Pavatextil P also gives the mind more peace thanks to its performance levels in terms of acoustic insulation. Moreover, the high-performance material enhances the comfort of your home, because it is healthy, comfy and sustainable. With its class A+ rating for emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), this insulation guarantees the indoor air quality in living areas.

Long-term performance

Pavatextil P is also a pleasure to work with: the material is light and flexible, and is simple and easy to cut. It can be installed in no time between roof beams, on the underlying floorboards or up against walls and partitions. Applying thick layers is no problem at all.

Its second life is far from short-lived. Time has virtually no effect on the initial thickness and insulating power of Pavatextil P, which means that its performance capabilities are guaranteed for a long time to come. So, anyone who takes off their jeans for a better climate is unlikely to be left out in the cold.
