solar+â„˘ textile technology from Schoeller keeps textiles tangibly warmer. The technology helps textiles of any color to better absorb the sunâ€™s rays. solar+â„˘ works especially well on high pressure days when it is sunny and cold. Even thin fabrics can provide more warmth.
Isnâ€™t it fascinating how ducks can dive under water and re-emerge with their feathers still dry? Like all waterfowl, ducks produce an oily secretion that allows their plumage to repel water. The textile finish ecorepelÂ® transfers this natural water repellence to textiles.
Qi [tschi:] â€“ two letters that stand for the most important thing of all: vital energy. Every living being constantly emits energy in the form of Far Infrared Rays (FIRs). The textile technology energearâ„˘ allows the bodyâ€™s own energy to be reflected back to it. This additional energy can enhance performance and increase general wellbeing.
active>silverâ„˘ is a freshness finish for textiles based on nature-identical silver salts. It reduces the occurrence of unpleasant body odors by inhibiting the reproduction of bacteria, mites and fungi that can cause odor in fabrics. This ensures that textiles remain hygienically fresh. The skin flora is not affected by active>silverâ„˘.
Dark colors heat up stronger when exposed to direct sunlight compared to light colors. The intelligent textile finish coldblackÂ® reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from UV rays. This leads to a higher degree of comfort and improves the bodyâ€™s heat management during outdoor activities.
The leaves of certain plants always stay clean, because dirt cannot adhere to their finely-structured surfaces. This natural non-stick and cleaning process, also known as the self-cleaning effect, is permanently transferred to the textile surface by means of nanotechnology. The result is NanoSphereÂ® – a high performance water repellent technology.
3XDRYÂ® treatments combine two technologies into one textile: On the outside the textile is water repellent, whereas on the fabricâ€™s inside it effectively absorbs perspiration. Moisture resulting from perspiration is quickly absorbed as perspiration is distributed over a large surface area. This ensures rapid evaporation and offers better wear comfort.
