Textile Fibers, Yarns, and FabricsFabric
1. Comfort: PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is the heart of NanoGLIDE™. NanoGLIDE™ fabrics provide beneficial “tactile aesthetics”; to include (1) better fabric hand, (2) softer fabrics and (3) superior fabric loft. This means superior fabric bending, less flexural rigidity and improved compression and thickness. All of these factors impact comfort and hand; to include UV protection. These are the key fabric attributes to comfort; and the PTFE advantage; with every fabric made with NanoGLIDE™. 2. Permanent 3. UV protection 4. Moisture management: PTFE is extremely hydrophobic; thus wicking will occur very fast (as drying); but it will also be high performing for not “wetting out” like most products on the market today. Because PTFE is very hydrophobic; NanoGLIDE® will conquer wicking, wetting out and moisture management; at maximum speed. 5. Heat management: Heat Management is the ability of a fabric to allow the skin surface to cool; but to also address heat caused by static and kinetic friction. PTFE's coefficient of FRICTION is 0.1 or less, which is the second lowest of any known solid material known to man kind; eliminating Static and Kinetic friction; thus allowing the skin surface to stay cool by eliminating friction and abrasion on the skins surface. 6. Friction & Abrasion Management: PTFE's coefficient of FRICTION is 0.1 or less, which is the second lowest of any known solid material known to man kind; meaning our products offer maximum abrasion control; and eliminates friction.
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is the heart of NanoGLIDE™. Our PTFE Nano Particles are .3-.4 um and 100% less than 1 micron.
