New Milliken Obex Forma HD

Econyl turtle 

After 5 years of development, Milliken have at last launched the next generation of the extremely popular & successful Obex Forma Entrance Matting System - 'Forma HD'. Not only is the new Forma exceptionally durable and effective as an entrance matting system but the textile area has been increased substantially to add even more moisture absorbance under foot.

The new textile is constructed from ECONYL® yarn 100% Regenerated Nylon manufactured from pre & post-consumer waste such as ghost fishing nets from our Oceans thus making one of the most sustainable entrance mat options on the market today.

 The ECONYL® yarn is created from waste collected through different initiatives and projects:

  • The ECONYL® Reclaiming Program – reclaim managers are expanding the waste collection network, across the globe with operations in the USA, Egypt, Greece, Pakistan, Thailand, Norway and Turkey.
  • The Healthy Seas, a journey from waste to wear initiative – Volunteer divers are recovering abandoned or lost ghost nets from the bottom of the seas in Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece and Croatia.
  • Works™– Founded by Interface with Zoological Society London, it is a social initiative to empower coastal communities in the Philippines and Cameroon to collect and sell discarded fishing nets.

The ECONYL® Reclaiming Program is saving hundreds of thousands of marine life from entanglement and eventually death from these ghost nets which take over 600 years to degrade in our Oceans at which time they break down into micro fibres and enter our food chain with unknown future health implications.
