A durable fabric which reduces the impact of waste products on the environment

Evolon® is a long-lasting fabric, fit for demanding applications.


A CLEAN technology

Freudenberg Evolon is ISO 14001 certified.

Being a continuous process, from the raw material to the fabric, Evolon® technology achieves in several minutes what the traditional textile industry can do in several weeks.

The water used to split and entangle Evolon® filaments is recycled internally, and re-used in a closed loop. Thanks to this process, Evolon® was awarded a special prize:
Eco-Trophée du Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges.

No solvents, no binders are used during the manufacturing.

Last but not least, Evolon® is manufactured in Europe, complying with the European chemical regulations.



Evolon® is PVC-free. Evolon® base material is made of polyester, polyamide and water. These components are stable and safe for the humane health and the environment, in normal conditions of use.

Evolon® base material* has even been granted the Oeko-Tex 100 class 1 certificate, which guarantees there is no harmful substances for the contact with baby skin.**

Evolon® is 2 to 30 times lighter than traditional materials which it can substitute in different applications. For equivalent or superior performance, Evolon® dramatically minimizes the use of raw materials.



Evolon® allows the use of eco-friendly dyestuffs, finishes and inks, e.g. water-based inks.**

Thanks to non-fraying edges, converting is simplified, requiring fewer materials and fewer operations.


Being a durable fabric which can be washed and re-washed***, Evolon® is helping to reducing the impact of waste products on the environment.

Even though recycling has to be considered as the best way of managing waste, it is important to know that Evolon® can be incinerated or landfilled without any risk of emissions of halogeneous substances**. This is of high interest especially in case waste would not be sorted and disposed selectively, or if an accidental fire would occur.
