The technologies we use in the production of our things.
The technologies we use in the production of our things.
Quick dry – ensures rapid evaporation of moisture from the surface of things, during wearing and after washing. This is achieved through the use of technological fibers, special construction and/or fabric weave. Such fabrics do not retain moisture, but quickly dissipate it from the body, dispersing it over a large area, which contributes to rapid evaporation. This prevents hypothermia of the person during stoppages of movement. Such clothes are designed specifically for those who lead an active lifestyle.
Antibacterial – guarantees protection against the development of harmful bacteria and the accumulation of unpleasant odors in the fabric. This is achieved through a special Silver Ion impregnation of the fabrics or by weaving antibacterial yarns into the fabric structure.
Flat Lock – The jointing technology, which does not produce a scar, and the joint is flat. This is achieved by using special machines in the production. Flat seams give the product comfort in use (do not chafe) and are resistant to tearing.
Wicking – This function is ensured by special fibers with an increased capillary effect. This function is provided by special fibers with increased capillary effect. Fast-drying yarns have an increased evaporation surface. Thanks to this moisture droplets are divided into smaller and distributed over a larger area of the product, which allows moisture to evaporate quickly enough.
Breathability – a high level of "breathing" properties of the clothing. These are things made of vapor-permeable fabrics that have a high level of water vapor conductivity from the body to the outside. The ability of materials to allow air to pass through under the influence of air pressure differential. Air permeability is one of the most important parameters in outdoor clothing because it determines the key performance and properties of the final product. Units of measure g/m2 / 24 hours there is moisture absorbed by the fabric, taken out and the skin stays dry, with active movement, and avoid overcooling. This is ensured by special fibers in the fabric or pores in the membrane.
Airing – high "breathability" of things. That is, the fabrics in these things are easy to let the air in from the outside. This is achieved due to the loose weave, which forms a sufficient space between the fibers in the fabric, as well as the low density of the fabric itself, that is, its thinness.
2-way stretch – the ability of the thing to stretch in width or length without deforming, mainly due to the addition of elastomer to the fabric composition.
4-way stretch – The ability of the thing to stretch in all directions without deforming. This is achieved by adding elastomer to the fabric composition and a special weave. Such clothes provide maximum freedom of movement.
UPF – a high sun protection factor of the garment. That is, it is the ability to prevent ultraviolet light from penetrating through the fabric into the skin. This property is achieved through the fabric structure, complex weaving and/or additional protective impregnation of the fabric.
LT – lightweight clothing. The weight of such clothing is lower among alternative products with similar functionality. This is achieved by using innovative and technological fibers, modern materials that can be more efficient with less weight and volume than outdated alternatives.
Natural – products made of natural materials (cotton, leather, nubuck).
Cooling – the cooling effect of the garment. Achieved by fabrics with Airing and Wicking technologies have a low density. That is, the thing quickly removes moisture from the body, well ventilated, and the fabric structure keeps the wind blowing cool. Therefore, you can feel this coolness of the skin.
Thermo – the thing provides effective thermoregulation (heat storage). These clothes (for example, fleece jackets) can be with Wicking technology and in addition with tubular (empty) fibers that are able to retain heat, or it is jackets with a layer of insulation. This technology allows you to keep "dry" body heat and the right microclimate under clothing.
Reflective – small reflective elements in clothing.
Water repellent – moisture-repellent properties. This property indicates that the fabric or material does not absorb or slowly absorb moisture and dirt in its structure, which allows you to easily clean the product from dirt and moisture and more effectively protect people from precipitation.
Such functionality is given to the fabric or material by a special dense weave and impregnation (Teflon, DWR, Double DWR) with special substances, which cover each fiber with a hydrophobic shell, without forming a film on the surface of the product and without clogging pores. This impregnation over time and after each wash loses its initial effectiveness, so it should be, before each season, renewed with special sprays.
Also the thing can be moisture repellent thanks to the membrane. It is a special porous film that does not let moisture and water in from the outside, but lets water vapor (breathe) from the body.
Waterproof – waterproof items. Usually they are poncho raincoats, designed for maximum protection from precipitation, for a long time. Such things necessarily have glued seams that do not let water in. Absolute protection against rain and snow gives a membrane (a thin film that does not let water in) or the application of a layer of polyurethane (PU) to the product.
Antistatic – Technology that neutralizes the effect of electrification of the product ("crackling" when removing or putting the product on the body). This technology is implemented due to the presence of antistatic thread in the weave, which contributes to the distribution and drainage of the statistical charge from the surface of the fabric.
