Basofil Solutions to make flame resistant yarns and fabrics

Hickory , N.C. – Basofil Solutions, LLC has been formed by The Sumlin Group, to supply the home furnishings industry with flame resistant yarns, fabrics, prefabricated parts, and sewing thread utilizing Basofil heat and flame resistant fiber.

Basofil Solutions is a sister company to Basofil Fibers, and both are owned by Sumlin. Nathan Dry, a former research and development executive of Guilford Mills and more recently Cortina Fabrics, will serve as president of Basofil Solutions.

Dry said, “We are concentrating on products for the dynamic CPSC 16 CFR 1633 open flame standard for mattresses due July 1, 2007 and the top-of-the-bed requirements expected in 2010.”

The patented Alessandra sheath core flame resistant yarn and fabric line, designed for top of bed, upholstery, mattress barrier, and other uses, will also be marketed by the new unit.
