A brand name for fabric series made with white, nonwoven [[polyester fiber|polyester fibers]]. Hollytex is spunbonded from a continuous filament which results in a strong, lint-free, lightweight fabric with no added binders or pigments. It is calendared to form a very smooth surface. Hollytex is used as a support material, release paper, filtering agent, and interleaving paper. It is also used as a backing material for the 2-layer [[GORE-TEX®]] laminate.
