What is the Standard for Down Elasticity?

The international standard to judge how well a down product retains heat is by its fill-power (FP) coefficient, which is the “elasticity coefficient of down”. The heat retaining capability of downs is determined by the size and elasticity of their down balls. The better their elasticity, the larger the fluffiness and air compactness of downs, and more warmer they are. Therefore, they use the elasticity coefficient of down oversea as the indicator for “heat retaining degree”. The higher their coefficient, the better their heat retaining degree is. Generally speaking, only those with the elasticity of over 550FP can be referred to as outstanding downs.

Testing Processes

1
To stir feathers and pick them out firstly.
2
To shake the down clusters three times to make the fibers fall.
3
To pick out feather fibers and keep the down clusters.

R & D and innovation

Pacific Feather and US customer -Down Décor developed the new brand of water repellent down which named DOWNTEK, and DOWNTEK products are treated by a special NANO medicament. The treating down will have coating which resist the water, and dust will not attach to the surface of down to make the down water repellent and make the down waterproof and dustproof. Product Characters are as below:

  • 1
    DownTek absorbs 30% less weather than untreated down.
  • 2
    DownTek dries 60% faster than untreated down.
  • 3
    The DownTek treatment does not affect fill power of treated down.
  • 4
    The DownTek treatment adds no measurable weight.
  • 5
    DownTek retains significantly more loft than untreated down,after exposure to moisture.
  • 6
    DownTek has been washed20 times in home laundry with no degradation in the performance of thetreatment.
  • 7
    DownTek is PFOA and PFOS free.
  • 8
    DownTek is not classified as dangerous according to the EU directive 67/548/EEC and 1995/45/EC.

Quality Certification

RDS Safe Down

For many years, Pacific Feather has upheld the ideas of green and eco-friendly manufacturing and worked hard to carry out such ideas on our products. Pacific Feather has dedicated itself in treating all animals with humanitarian measures and passed RDS recognition on 2016.

The Responsible Down Standard (RDS), was cooperatively developed by North Face, Control Union Certifications, and TE to ensure that all animals in the supply chain of downs receive morally responsible treatment. This made sure that the animals that provided down materials were not tortured, force fed, and plucked alive. After receiving RDS recognition, Pacific Feather now can provide customers with RDS certificates according to the certified categories and is constantly obtaining more recognition.

CAS Outstanding Down

Pacific Feather is the first outstanding down manufacturer certified with CAS with the certification number of 104102 and 140104. It provides 90% of Taiwan’s goose downs and duck downs.

Certified Agricultural Standards (CAS) is the symbol for domestic agricultural products and processed products with the highest quality. The examination unit for down products for CAS is the Technology Service Center of NAIF, which is a laboratory that has passed the recognition of Taiwan Accreditation Foundation (TAF) and its protocol stipulation, facilities and personnel training are geared with the international standards of International Down and Feather Bureau (IDFB). From material sources to washed processing, manufacturing process management, manufacturing environment and quality control have to meet exact demands and strictly checked in order to manufacture down products certified with CAS. For our customers, it is the quality guarantee for authentic, safe, and reliable products.

Features of CAS Downs

For down products that have passed CAS accreditation, all materials are from Taiwanese local water birds, such as geese and ducks. With the developed duck and goose aquaculture experience and advanced variety improvement technology of Taiwan, downs developed and matured after appropriate breeding time, resulting in large and abundant down feathers. In addition to that, with the geographical advantage of Taiwan, the raw materials of downs and feathers were gathered within the golden 24-hour after the animals were slaughtered and put into washed process with the quickest efficiency. This is done in order to maintain their freshness; effectively prevent them from fermenting; and preserve their fluffiness, elasticity, heat retaining capability and durability. Along with the top-class down processing technology of our company, we are capable of creating the most outstanding CAS down boutiques.
