New USP from Schoeller floated straight to the fore
Jul '11
The new USP (Ultralight Soft Protection) technology from Schoeller Textil AG opens the competition in the fabric discipline “technical lightweights" with a previously undreamed of comfortable lightness coupled with wind proofing and rain resistance.

The new USP technology from Schoeller Textil AG incorporates the zeitgeist of the most modern fabrics. Compared with materials featuring comparable functions, they are ultralight, offer protection from rain are windproof and retain their natural breathability.

In addition, the protective layer barely increases the fabric weight and the feel of the material with USP is very pleasant.

The total weight of a trendy functional rain jacket made of a fabric with the new USP technology (which passes the AATCC-Rainwear Test!) can weigh as little as 80 grams. Function cannot be lighter than with the ultralight, transparent schoeller-spirit polyamide fabric in the vibrant pastel shades of the rainbow.

The elastic schoeller-shape changeant fabric also provides a gossamer-light, protective cover in shades of blue, beige and pink.

No less fascinating are two further airily-light, elastic schoeller-spirit jacket weights with USP. The understated bi-color shimmers in a beige and wine sheen while the chocolate-brown polyamide fabric in a matt look radiates elegance. All fabrics finished with USP technology can be worn next to the skin without a lining. This cuts down on addition weight and packing volume.
