Man-Made Fibre


O5 OPENING AND BLENDING

Northern Feather Canada’s proprietary technology facilitates the opening and blending of raw fibre fill. This goal is achieved by a process we call O5. Our man-made fibres are opened and blended with O5 which simulates the loft and comfort of our natural fill products. Also, O5 enhances resilience, life span and adds hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties.

SPECIALITY Man-Made Fibre

Corn Fibre

Northern Feather Canada’s Corn fibre is a 100% bio-based (no petroleum) carbon material, this means that it is a non-allergenic fibre that is entirely plant-based.

A smaller environmental footprint is just one of the top benefits of our Corn fibre, among its many other benefits:
- Very light, with good insulation
- More breathable than regular synthetic fibre
- Good moisture and temperature regulation
- Low odour retention
- Soft, luxurious feel

Our corn fibre offers superior comfort and value with the peace of mind of a small environmental footprint.

Technical Process of Corn Fibre:

1. CORN:  Corn is grown and then used to capture and separate CO2, transforming it into long-chain sugar molecules (glucose).

2. DEXTROSE:  Enzymes convert the glucose milled from corn stems to dextrose, which is fermented into lactic acid.

PCM Fibre

TempraBalancePCM.png

Our TempraBalance® PCM (Phase Change Material) offers advanced thermo regulating features. It can absorb excessive body heat and when the temperature drops, dispense it again, thus the temperature regulation is assured, providing extraordinary comfort.

Help your body regulate its temperature

When you’re too hot or cold at night, your body’s natural temperature regulation has to work overtime. That extra effort means you’re not getting the rest you need. But your discomfort also makes you toss and turn more often — or interrupt your sleep entirely to adjust bed covers. TempraBalance® PCM helps keep your body from getting too hot or cold. It transports heat - away or toward your body, as you need it. You get a cool, dry environment that is optimal for comfort. That’s why you get a deeper, more restful sleep.
