Ecorepel®: Environmentally friendly water, wind and dirt repellence 

 

Isn’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 ecorepel® technology transfers this natural water repellence to textile surfaces.

Ecorepel® Bio – Water-repelling on the basis of renewable primary products

The plant cuticle is the very outer layer of leaves which protects them from uncontrolled evaporation. This wafer-thin waxy film enveloping the leaves and stems is responsible for the familiar way that water droplets run off in the morning dew or in heavy rain. This effect is the exact inspiration for ecorepel® Bio.

 

Energear™: Excellent Thermal Insulation 

All living organisms permanently emit energy into their surroundings. Textiles with energear™ reflect this energy which the body gives off in the form of far infrared rays. This can positively affect the body and its stored energy. The knowledge of far infrared rays and their positive properties has its origins in Asian curative medicine and is widely used around the world.

Far infrared rays are part of the infrared ray spectrum and are radiated by the sun, many stones and metals, as well as by the human body. Certain minerals can reflect this radiated energy.

The knowledge of far infrared rays and their positive properties has its origins in Asian curative medicine and is widely used around the world. energear™ consists of a titan-mineral matrix. Textiles finished or printed with energear™ return far infrared rays to the body. The energy harnessed in this way can have a positive effect on the body

 

 

 3XDRY®: Dry in a flash

A highly advanced textile finish has also been applied to the fabrics called 3XDRY®. This is a textile finishing technology that combines two functions into one textile. On the outside the textile is water and dirt repellent and on the inside, perspiration is quickly absorbed and transported away from the body. 3XDRY® technology ensures moisture is distributed over the textiles surface and evaporates rapidly and as a result 3XDRY® dries much faster in comparison to conventional textiles. Additionally moisture evaporates close to skin to assist the natural cooling process of the body.

 

 Coldblack®: the UVA- and UVB-protection

To further protect the wearer the jacket is also finished with coldblack®. In comparison to light colors, dark colors absorb more heat in direct sunlight. The heat absorption can be reduced to a minimum with coldblack®, the UVA- and UVB-protection textile finish from Schoeller Technologies. coldblack® reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from the sun’s rays and noticeably improving the wearer's comfort level.
