The segment promotes Rockland’s blackout fabrics for residential use, in conjunction with the benefits of 100% Blackout in terms of both fashion and function.

"Made for the Shade and More", Sewing Savvy, September 2003
Roc-lon® Roc-rol™ is a multi-purpose, 100 percent
blackout cloth available in 17 face colors with a white cloth backing. It is part of
the Rockland Industries Inc., TLC line, which is short for total light control. When
turned into a window shade or drawn drape, it eliminates light, helps insulate against
heat and cold, provides privacy and reduces noise in your environment. Some other
ideas for use include using it as a floor cloth, for murals, banners, wall hangings,
place mats, cloth toys and designer cloth bags. It can take the heat, so iron-on
transfers, paints that require heat setting and fusible adhesives are not a problem.
It also accepts fabric glues and tapes and is soft enough to hole punch and does not
fray according to the manufacturer which enables you to cur designs in any shape. When
painting on the cloth, it does not require any surface preparation, thus saving a
great deal of cost and prep time. Because there is no show-through, you can design on
both sides of a project, making it reversible. Machine Applique and embroidery also
work nicely. It is suggested that a clear polyacrylic sealer protective coating be
applied when Roc-rol™ is used for floor cloths. This 70 percent polyester/30
percent cotton fabric is available in 36, 48, 54, 72, and 84-inch widths. The 54-inch
width retails for about $9.99 per yard and can be purchased from Dawn Company (Ed
Findley) at (800) 655-3296 and Jo-Vin (Vinny Pappalardo) (800) 441-9350. For more
information, comsumers can call the Roc-lon TLC division at (800) 876-2566, ext. 1323
"Blackout Drapery Liner", Family Motor Coaching, August 2002
Roc-lon® TLC™ (Total Light Control) blackout fabric
drapery liner is said to attach to the back of an existing drapery. A hidden magnetic
center closure snaps the liner shut and prevents outside light from filtering through.
According to product literature, this creates a perfect sleeping environment and also
makes great privacy curtains for the separation of sleeping and living areas in a
motorhome. In addition, the blackout curtains insulate against heat and cold for
comfort and energy conservation.
The drapery liners are available in white or ecru polyester/cotton fabric and can be
used alone or attached to the back of existing window treatments. The blackout liners
have loops for instant attachment over drapery hooks and can be used with any window
treatment, including pinch pleat, tab-top, and pole-top draperies.
