OSAKA, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kuraray Fastening Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Osaka, President: Toru Tanokura) announces that their polyester hook and loop fasteners MAGIC TAPE™ and FREEMAGIC™, which are also flame-resistant, have been certified by the “Oeko-Tex Standard 100” for textile safety.

1. Background on becoming “Oeko-Tex Standard 100” certified

 

“Oeko-Tex Standard 100” is a certification system that certifies that a textile product is safe and does not contain any harmful substances. The Oeko-Tex International Association started certification in Europe in 1992.  

Concern for environmentally compatible products has increased in recent years, and increasingly, the same environmental compatibility is sought for the parts and materials that make up products as for the products themselves.  

During the past year, Kuraray Fastening switched all of its fabric hook and loop fasteners to polyester hook and loop fasteners made by ecological production process, which do not use a back-coating agent. Acquiring this certification by “Oeko-Tex Standard 100” provides our customers with a distinct, environmentally friendly option.  

2. Product features

 

Polyester hook and loop fasteners certified by the “Oeko-Tex Standard 100” meet the standards of the European Union chemical regulation REACH and the United States Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). Now classified as Class 1 articles applicable to products for infants and toddlers up to 3 years of age.  

Complies with the automotive safety standard “FMVSS 302”, establishing it as both environmental compatible and flame resistant.  

Received certification for MAGICTAPE™ and FREEMAGIC™.
