Product information

ECOPAK® EPLX400, recycling-backpack-laminate, 235g/sqm

ECOPAK™ from renowned US sail manufacturer Challenge Sailcloth is a backpack laminate made from 100% recycled polyester. Similar to a sailcloth laminate, this fabric laminates an outer fabric with a UV-stable, highly waterproof polyester film or rep together. The strong, blue CrossPly polyester fibres, which lie in a diamond shape between the layers, increase the tear resistance and prevent the material from stretching in all directions. The fibres also give ECOPAK™ its typical, technical look. In the EPLX versions, the smooth film is on the inside; in the EPX styles, a lining of 70den ripstop polyester has been laminated on. This additionally reinforces the fabric, e.g. at particularly stressed seams, and ensures a light interior in backpacks and bags.

When developing ECOPAK™, Challenge Sailcloth focused on sustainability in addition to performance:

- All components of the ECOPAK™ laminates are made from 100% recycled polyester. This means that metre for metre, over 20 plastic bottles are recycled and more than 450g of carbon dioxide is saved.

- Only FC-free C0 impregnations are used.

- No VOCs are used in the production of ECOPAK™, all adhesives are solvent-free

- Thanks to an innovative production process, energy-intensive drying processes are reduced during lamination

- ECOPAK™ lies very flat when cut and has a very uniform CrossPly fibre from edge to edge - this prevents waste when cutting to size

- The polyester outer fabric used is similarly abrasion resistant to other fabrics made of nylon

ECOPAK® EPLX200 combines a 200den recycled polyester with a matt, waterproof and UV-stable 0.5mm polyester film. Between them, visible from the inside, are the blue CrossPly fibres at a 45° angle. ECOPAK® EPLX200 is the cheapest and at the same time lightest ECOPAK® variant - with full performance! It is a good choice for a waterproof liner. Or as an outer fabric in an ultralight backpack. Places with heavy punctual stress such as shoulder strap attachments or daisy chains should be backed with an extra layer of fabric to prevent tearing.
