Fasten-Air™ is a family of fabrics that stretch for comfort and function. Perfect for medical applications, these fabrics utilize familiar hook and loop closures. Fasten-Air is an innovation of Darlington Fabrics.

Steve Perry, Darlington’s Senior Vice President notes, “Fasten-Air™ is a strong yet soft warp knit fabric and is available in a variety of weights based on your particular application. This unbroken loop (UBL) fabric comes in seven styles with different levels of stretch, weight and compression. We have seen that Fasten-Air™ is unique because of its stretch-comfort and function. The product achieves excellent hook attachment using bestselling brands of hook tape.”

Fasten-Air fabrics are made with 9% to 20% spandex and nylon at weights of 6.5 oz./square yard up to 9.8 oz./square yard. The hand is soft and subtle, which adds to the overall appearance.

Mindy Earleywine, also of Darlington reports that, “In addition to its durability and stretch, further comfort can be achieved by incorporating Naturexx™, which wicks moisture away from the body. Odorexx™, for long lasting anti-odor freshness also works well with this fabric.”

Darlington's Fasten-Air™ fabric collection is available in custom colors. Ms. Earleywine also tell us, “Sample yardage available in various colors for product testing if you have some specific ideas in mind.” All of the fabrics are machine washable.

Fasten-Air™ received a Top Ten Award for Textile Innovations from FabrickLink in 2012.
