Oceans are unique habitats. However, more than five trillion pieces of plastic waste in the water are putting the inhabitants of the oceans in danger daily. Sea-Tex fabric from WAREMA is made from 50% recycled plastic objects from the ocean and can be used in various internal sun shading systems from WAREMA.
The plastic for manufacturing the Sea-Tex fabric is gathered from beaches and shorelines all over the world. It is processed into threads, which are woven together with other fibres to make the extremely robust SeaTex fabric. Not only does it meet the requirements for tear-resistance, but it also has Oekotex certification and is PVC free and halogen free. Its most important characteristics also include the fact that, as per the B1 building materials class, it is flame resistant and anti-static, as well as therefore being suited for a humid environment.
WAREMA Sea-Tex fabrics are available in the colours Graphite, Sand, Mist, Pearl and White with or without an aluminium coating.
Here are a few figures to show how long it takes for the sea to break down waste: 3 months for a milk carton, 50 years for a plastic yogurt pot and as long as 450 years for a PET bottle!
Plastic waste is collected from beaches all around the world and processed together with other fibres into threads, which are woven to make SeaTex fabric.
Sea-Tex fabrics have an Oeko-Tex certification and are both PVC-free and halogen-free.
Due to low chemical emissions and thus improved ambient air, Sea-Tex fabrics have the Greenguard certificate.
Sea-Tex fabrics are anti-static and as a result are also suited for a humid environment.
