Nanotex®, a Crypton company, has announced Nanotex® DRY INSIDE technology for cotton apparel. This patented Nanotex® DRY INSIDE technology that wicks moisture away from the body, eliminates dampness and chaffing in 100 per cent cotton apparel.
Tremendous growth in the active and athleisure markets in the last five years also shows customers’ expectations for high degree of comfort alongside a high level performance. It may be mentioned here that innate absorbency and limited wicking abilities acts as a stumbling block for cotton… But nanotechnology process further advances cotton’s competitive position in athleisure and activewear markets.
“Nanotex® DRY INSIDE give its customers the high-tech performance plus the comfort of cotton,” states Randy Rubin, CEO, Nanotex. The technology applies a technical application on 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 or compromising the look, feel or breathability of the fabric.
“Surpassing through a battery of moisture management test methods and cling force test, we achieved Nanotex® DRY INSIDE as a high performing cotton product. Cotton finished with Nanotex® DRY INSIDE outperformed 100 per cent polyester samples and untreated cotton samples for moisture transport; and offered 80 per cent reduction in cling force. The technology allows for the touch, look and feel of cotton to be experienced in a revolutionary new way, one that has long been desired”, states William Kimbrell, Director – Technology Marketing, Cotton Inc.
