Manufacturing Process

AKASoft FS is manufactured in USA using a polyester interlock fabric that is knitted in mills in north-east USA and dyed in specific colors. The interlock is then laminated with a food safe, treated TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane) film to fabric via a liquefied adhesive with NO SOLVENTS required.

In this process, a clean surface area is covered with the adhesive that melt-bonds the film to the fabric as it is cured providing superior adhesion. The process ensures that the PUL is soft-handed, silent (vs. crunchy), and, at the same time, durable as well as flexible.

In lab testing, this product has survived a minimum of 200 laundry cycles without delaminating or leaking. In addition, the manufacturing process has no discharges of VOC or solvent fumes which helps keep air clean, and generates no solid waste, thereby supporting our efforts towards a clean environment while supplying our customers a high-quality product.

All our raw materials are from U.S. manufacturers and our product is proudly manufactured in the United States of America.
