Through the use of various additional finishes, special yarns and colour effects, further functions can be combined in order to optimise the fabric for the respective area of use, for example:
Advanced Moisture Management 3XDRY®, Water and dirt repelling properties, such as NanoSphere®, Climate membrane c_change™, ActiveSilver™.
To ensure the wearer stays dry in a flash, the 412 shell jacket has been finished with 3XDRY®, a textile finishing technology that combines two functions into one textile. The outside of the textile is water and dirt repellent, on the inside, perspiration is quickly absorbed and transported away from the body, leaving perspiration marks practically invisible from the outside. 3XDRY® ensures moisture is distributed over the textiles surface and evaporates rapidly 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.
3XDRY®: Three times dry – the feelgood technology
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. On the outside the textile is water repellent and significantly less susceptible to stains. The inside of the textile absorbs and distributes moisture over the surface. As a result, textiles with 3XDRY® dry very quickly. Perspiration marks are practically invisible from the outside. Additionally, moisture evaporates close to skin to assist the natural cooling process of the body.
The outside of the textile is water and dirt repellent.
At the same time, on the inside of the textile perspiration is quickly absorbed and transported away from the body. Moisture is distributed over the surface and evaporates rapidly. As a result, textiles with 3XDRY® dry much faster in comparison to conventional textiles.
Care/properties of 3XDRY®
• natural cooling effect
• minimizes perspiration marks
• highly abrasion resistant
• no effect on the breathability
• washable and easy care
• reactivation of function through tumble drying or ironing
Natural cooling effect:
3XDRY® stimulates the natural cooling effect during an active phase. Measurements on the right present a textile finished with 3XDRY® in comparison to an untreated fabric. Thanks to the outstanding performance of the technology, the tested fabric samples show a temperature difference of up to -3° C after the active phase.
3XDRY® is based on state-of-the-art C6 fluorochemicals (i.e. molecule chains consisting of 6 carbon atoms). Even with highly sensitive measurement methods, which detect impurities as small as 25 ppb (parts per billion), neither PFOA nor PFOS were found on fabrics treated with 3XDRY® technology. It combines modern functionality and the safety requirements that will apply to fluorochemicals in the future. The possible secondary components of C6-chemical (for example PFHxA = perfluorohexanoicacid) have a more favorable safety profile than products based on longer chain chemistry.
To further protect the wearer, the 411 soft shell jacket is 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.
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. Consequently, the wear comfort of textiles can be noticeably improved.
Dark-colored textiles absorb both visible and invisible sunlight, meaning both heat and light. In all types of textiles, coldblack® reduces this absorption of thermal radiation. This function is partciularly effective in the case of darker colors. The result is a noticeably better heat management.
In addition, the technologies offer reliable protection from UV rays, which is particularly important for light-colored textiles. A UPF of 30 (minimum) is guaranteed for all colors and textiles, without the feel or look of the product being affected. As a result, textiles with coldblack® can make an effective contribution to protecting against harmful UV rays.
The name Phase Change Materials is a collective term for materials which are capable of changing their state of matter within a certain temperature range: from solid to liquid and from liquid to solid (this is known as "phase change"). The simplest example is water, which turns into ice at 0 °C and into steam at 100 °C.
In order to physically incorporate Phase Change Materials in textiles, they are enclosed in a protective wrapping (a microcapsule with a diameter of just a few microns). This is to prevent leakage during the liquid phase and to ensure that the garment can stand the effects of washing, cleaning and the weather.
Ideal bearer materials for these microcapsules, which enclose the Phase Change Material, are fibres, coatings and foam, which can be added to different materials such as fleece, tricots or fabrics.
A product of Schoeller–PCM™ contains Phase Change Materials, enclosed into innumerable tiny microcapsules which react to temperature fluctuations. At a certain temperature, their aggregate condition changes: from liquid to solid and vice-versa. The Phase Change Material in the microcapsules has been set to a particular temperature range. If the body temperature or the outside temperature rises, the excess warmth is stored. When the temperature drops, the previously-stored warmth is released again. In other words: Schoeller®-PCM™ actively balances out temperature extremes.
Products with Schoeller®-PCM™ always ensure the very own comfort climate. Even with extreme fluctuations in temperature, the wearer never feel too cold or too warm, and the performance level is maintained.
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.
Ecorepel® Bio imitates plants’ natural protection with the aid of a high performance, permanently odourless high-tech finish. It is PFC-free and is obtained entirely from renewable primary products. The finish envelopes the fibres of the fabric in a thin film, providing the repellent effect which allows water droplets and aqueous dirt to run off the surface.
Care/Properties of Ecorepel® Bio
This bluesign® approved fabric designates textiles that were produced in compliance with especially high environmental standards. It guarantees maximum freedom from harmful substances, highest quality and functionality. The label is a sign that follows the most stringent EHS-criteria (consumer safety, water emission, air emission, occupational health and safety, resource productivity) worldwide. The bluesign® standard takes a different approach, instead of analysing final products, it starts at the beginning of the manufacturing chain, at the inputs. All input streams are assessed. They receive a rating based on their ecotoxicological profile (Input Stream Management). Bluesign® stands for textiles low on harmful substances, an environmentally-friendly production and a cautious use of resources.
