Original Press Release:
LINQ Industrial Fabrics, Inc. Introduces CROHMIQ® WHITE(TM) Static Protective Fabric
LINQ Industrial Fabrics, Inc. ("LINQ") is pleased to introduce CROHMIQ® WHITE(TM) static protective fabric for the manufacture of flexible intermediate bulk containers ("FIBC"). CROHMIQ® WHITE(TM) delivers the same outstanding safety and performance as CROHMIQ®
BLUE(TM), the world's leading static protective fabric. The new fabric is white with distinctive blue highlight yarns and is offered in 3.0 oz/yd² and 6.5 oz/yd² fabric weights.
"The demand for CROHMIQ® fabric has never been stronger and our customers are asking for more choices." said Carlos Echeverria, President and COO of LINQ. "CROHMIQ® FIBCs are now made and sold all over the world through our global distribution network. With all the exciting new applications we are seeing we felt the time was right to introduce CROHMIQ® WHITE(TM). CROHMIQ® WHITE(TM) joins CROHMIQ® BLUE(TM) as the safest Type D static protective FIBC
fabrics in the world. At LINQ we are investing heavily into research and development and we are committed to meeting our customers' needs in the global marketplace."
LINQ Industrial Fabrics, Inc. pioneered the technology for ungrounded static protective fabrics for the safe use in flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs) for sensitive flammable vapor and dust atmospheres. In 1995 LINQ invented CROHMIQ® fabric and since then CROHMIQ® has become the market leader for ungrounded static protective FIBCs. The patented CROHMIQ® fabric is used around the world by many leading Fortune® 500 manufacturers. CROHMIQ® BLUE(TM) FIBCs were the first to safely eliminate hazardous static discharges without the requirement of grounding and with no special FIBC construction techniques. So revolutionary was CROHMIQ® BLUE(TM) that a new FIBC classification for static protective FIBCs was created - Type D. With an estimated 7 million FIBCs produced over the last 8 years, many with multiple trips, CROHMIQ® BLUE(TM) FIBCS enjoy a spotless safety record second to none. The distinctive blue FIBC, the "Blue Bag," is synonymous with static protection and safety in our customers' eyes. Needless to say, CROHMIQ® has been the single most innovative and successful product ever in the FIBC industry.
