Aurora Specialty Textiles added Encore FR to its Weaves of Green line of 100% recycled polyester fabrics. Made from post-consumer plastic drink bottles and constructed of spun yarns to give it the drape and hand of a natural fiber fabric, Encore FR features a rugged texture and the durability of polyester. It meets the NFPA 701 small-scale flammability standard for indoor use and is compatible with sublimation transfer and UV-cure printing. Available in 100-yd rolls, 58-in. wide.

The company also introduced six new knit fabrics. The new additions to its Northern Lights Printable Textiles line are: Heavy Knit 9 FR, Stretch Knit 5 FR, Soft Satin Knit FR, Ultimate Knit FR, Durable Flag FR, and Universal Flag (also printable with direct disperse inks).  
All of the new styles are made from 100% polyester and meet the NFPA 701 small-scale flammability standard. Triple White features a triple-layer construction, no pinholes, and good light-diffusion properties. Applications include tradeshow graphics, widow graphics, P-O-P, frontlit displays, indoor and outdoor sign and banner, and more. Width options range up to 126 in.; standard roll length is 100 yd.

The company also has announced that it is now the exclusive distributor in the US and Canada for Stork digital textile inks for direct and transfer sublimation printing. Size options will include 2-kg bulk cans and cartridges, 1-kg bags, and 220-ml cartridges. Stork’s Acid and Reactive textile inks will also be made available through Aurora, the company reports.
