Nanotex partners Cotton Inc to develop Dry Inside technology
Supplier of nanotechnology based textile enhancements Nanotex has partnered Cotton Inc to develop and launch Nanotex Dry Inside technology for cotton apparels.
Nanotex Dry Inside applies a technical application to the back of the fabric, allowing moisture to move away from the body through invisible channels.
“Once moved from the inside to the outside of the garment, the moisture spreads and evaporates more readily; leaving the wearer dry and comfortable without clogging the fabric weave,” Nanotex explained.
The patented technology enables effective moisture transfer away from the skin, eliminating dampness and chaffing in 100 per cent cotton apparel.
“This is done, while maintaining the additional comfort aspects of garments made from the natural fibre,” the US based company said.
“The processing technology enables cotton to effectively compete with synthetic fibre made clothing in the active and athleisure markets,” it added.
According to Nanotex, extensive testing at Cotton Inc laboratories showed that Nanotex Dry Inside outperformed 100 per cent polyester and untreated cotton in one-way moisture transport and cling. (AR)
