patented textile technology 3XDRY®
Dry on the outside. Dry on the inside. Dry in a flash. 3XDRY® is a textile finishing technology that combines two functions into one textile.
WHAT IS 3XDRY?
3XDRY® is a finishing technology which combines water repellence and water absorption on one fabric. Textiles finished with 3XDRY® repel moisture from the outside and absorb perspiration more quickly from the inside. This ensures increased wellbeing during all activities.
HOW DOWS 3XDRY WORK?
The 3XDRY® finish combines two technologies on just one fabric. On the outside, the fabric receives a hydrophobic (water-repelling) finish. Therefore it reliably repels moisture. On the inside, the fabric is furnished with a hydrophilic (water-loving) finish. Due to this hydrophilic finish, the perspiration produced by the body is carried away by the moisture-attracting fibres and spread over a wide area. The perspiration can evaporate quickly. In this way, the perspiration evaporates close to the body, supporting the body’s own cooling function. The hydrophobic layer also prevents perspiration escaping to the outside so that, externally, perspiration stains are barely visible.
WHERE IS 3XDRY USED?
3XDRY® is particularly well-suited to fabrics worn close to the body. 3XDRY® is used in all those areas involving intense exercise or strenuous physical activity, for example, sports, working life, outdoor activities or travelling.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Due to the 3XDRY® finish, perspiration stains are significantly less evident on the outside of the clothing. In addition, the body’s natural cooling function is supported as the perspiration evaporates close to the body. This ensures more energy in active phases. Furthermore, the 3XDRY® finish also displays reliable water and dirt repelling properties, and textiles finished with 3XDRY® are significantly faster to dry after washing.
Depending on the base material, textiles with 3XDRY® finish can be washed without difficulty in the washing machine. However, no fabric conditioner should be used. In many cases, fabrics with 3XDRY® finish are also suitable for industrial laundering. Please read the care label on the garment.
