Launch of energear textile print at Outdoor
Jun '11
The name energear stands for a new textile technology from Schoeller that ensures that the wearer's energy is reflected back to the body. Following the launch from Schoeller Textil AG, this textile technology will be available beginning summer 2011 at the licensing level from Schoeller Technologies.

As the first product, a print version (paste for textile printing) will be shown at Outdoor in Friedrichshafen making it incredibly simple to print shirts, shorts and underwear (even after production) with the energy-reflecting titanium-based mineral matrix.

Qi – the two letters that spell vital energy, is the most important thing of all. The free flow of Qi has been the focus of attention in eastern medicine for centuries and now many more people are discovering that their performance potential is more intensive when the balance and flow of energy are right.

This is exactly where energear from Schoeller comes into play. The new system is based on the well-known properties of certain minerals to reflect Far Infrared Rays and thus reflecting back the body's energy. The effect is remarkable, as confirmed by first tests in practice.

How energear works Humans constantly radiate or emit energy. energearTM ensures that the heat energy radiated by the body in the form of Far Infrared Rays is reflected back by the fabric. This reflection can increase circulation and oxygen levels in the blood. The additional energy can have various positive effects on the body, such as performance enhancement and the reduction of premature fatigue as well as improved regeneration. Furthermore, shorter warm-up phases suffice during physical activity and there is a general increase of concentration and wellbeing.

Mineral printing in metal look
The energear textile technology was developed in 2010 for Schoeller textiles. Now it is available for additional markets. energear can be integrated into textiles in different ways: through membranes and coatings (Schoeller Textil AG) or now via textile printing (Schoeller Technologies AG).

To harness the benefits of this technology for a textile print, a minimum of 30% of a shirt or other garment can be finished with the laundry-permanent energear print. Schoeller Technologies has developed some design suggestions for the purpose. Depending on the blend, the printing paste with energear results in a grey to silver-metallic look.

This process is generating enormous interest in various areas and is officially launching at Outdoor. First consumer products in Schoeller fabrics will be available beginning this summer from, among other brands, Alberto (golf pants) and Bugatti (lifestyle jacket).
