The single source FR barrier solution for the Mattress and Furniture Industries
Thermally Bonded Non-woven (T-Bond) Fire Barriers
Areas of use: borders, panels, upholstery
Construction: Engineered non-woven construction for maximum thickness and comfort retention; clean white color for use below ticking. Products can be multi-layered or homogeneous, depending on the customer’s needs for pure-white tops or unique blends of different types of fibers
- Inner Spring: Surrounds the perimeter of the inner spring and gussets, sewn into the taped edge with FR thread joining it to Jones T-Bond FR Quilt Panel Barrier
- Foundation or Box Spring: Surrounds the perimeter of the frame in continental wrap overlapping the top with 3 inches of material
Function: Creates fire barrier on sides of the mattress box springs or foundations to prevent breaching of mattress
FR Testing: When used properly in conjunction with other FR components, our products have been proven to produce mattresses that consistently pass the Federal 16CFR1633 tests for flammability.
Thermally bonded (T-Bond) Insulator Pads
Construction: T-bonded pads can be densified by mechanically entangling the fibers, via needling, for maximum strength. Available in both FR and non-FR versions.
Function: Creates fire barrier on top of foundation or box spring preventing fire from spreading to foundation or box spring construction
FT Testing: When used properly in conjunction with other FR components, our products have been proven to produce mattresses that consistently pass the Federal 16CFR1633 tests for flammability.
T-Bond Foam Replacements: pads, quilting, upholstery
Thermally Bonded products manufactured to replace virtually any foam application in the mattress, furniture, acoustical and appliance industries.
T-Bond products are available in both FR and non-FR designs to provide a proven safe, durable and breathable alternative for a fraction of the cost of foam products.
Jones uses bio-sustainable materials to develop and enhance our products’ technology so that they will offer environmentally stable alternatives to petro-chemically derived foams. Our technology is sustainable by nature.

Absorbent Fiber Pads
Cotton fibers have long been known to have superior oil sorptive properties (up to 50 time its own weight). It is also known that the less mature and low-grade cottons are the better sorption products. Jones is uniquely positioned to manufacture mechanically and lightly bonded pads for this market segment.
Our products use natural and renewable materials in place of expensive petrochemical-based polypropylene resin used to make melt-blown materials.
Cotton batting is the simplest form of textile padding for the mattress and furniture markets. Jones uses its ability to card (a textile process that cleans and aligns fibers) lower grade cotton fiber into unbonded batting. This batting allows the manufacturer to use as much or as little padding as needed, as well as the ability to “feather” the padding into seamless junctions with the piece of furniture.
Thermal Insulation Products
Jones is a leader in providing thermally insulated products via mechanical and thermally bonded materials. We combine cotton, reclaimed fibers (both natural and synthetic) and other natural fibers (such as jute, hemp and flax) to manufacture a wide array of products. These products have roughly an equal R-value to Fiberglas, there is zero formaldehyde issue with our materials. Additionally, there materials can be made fire-resistant and are naturally insect resistant. Perhaps the best reason to look to Jones for your thermal insulation needs, our materials are sustainable and green by design.
Oil Absorbent Fiber Pads
Low-grade cotton fibers have long been known for their superior oil absorbent properties. Traditionally, polypropylene (as plastic fiber) has been used to encapsulate oil after a spill, our cotton products actually absorb the oil in the fiber structure, and can be reused multiple times with oil extraction. Additionally, when the cotton padding is finished its usefulness, it can be landfilled, where it will breakdown, unlike the plastic fibers – which will last for thousands of years in a landfill.
Carding reclaimed cotton fibers and forming the fibers into a loose batt takes expertise that not every textile producer can master. This form of batting relies on the fiber to fiber interaction and webbing layers lapping to form a coherent fabric. This type of batting is used in traditional furniture manufacturing, and allows the “feathering” of the batting to fill in the padding precisely where needed. Cotton batting is also used in futon fill as well as inter-spring mattresses. This type of soft batting can be used as a quilting base for other textile uses.
With our ability to use and process reclaimed and a wide selection of natural fibers (including cotton, wool, jute and hemp), we are able to meet all of your insulation packaging needs. We can provide various thicknesses and densities to meet the R-values you need! We also have the ability to split and cut our product to your needed dimensions.
Utilizing reclaimed natural fibers, Jones provides a soft, super-absorbent, durable and reusable protective drop cloth for many uses. When using this type of drop cloth instead of plastic or coated papers, materials that can last thousands of years in landfills, you can reuse this pads over and over again.
