Cotswold Stabilizers Meet U.S. Consumer Safety Standards

October 23, 2017

Cotswold Industries, New York, recently announced its embroidery stabilizers’ nonwoven fabrics comply with the United States Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act’s (CPSIA) requirements regarding lead and phthalates.

These regulations limit lead contents and ban phthalates in inks used in certain products intended for children ages 12 and younger.

While the CPSIA does not address formaldehyde, Cotswold stabilizers’ fabrics also meet the most stringent regulations for this compound (those of the Japanese Ministry Ordinance Legislation, JMO112, and its European equivalent, EDANA Method for Free Formaldehyde 1210.1-99). The stabilizer fabrics further meet the flammability regulations (16 CFR 1610.4) promulgated pursuant to the U.S. Flammable Fabrics Act. — J.L.
