ResistexCarbon has been used for several years in the production of antistatic clothing according to the law en1149-1/2/3/5.
Antistatic – Dissipative: its special conductive fibres absorb and dissipate the electrical charges produced and accumulated from the environment or during physical exercise.
Perspiration and thermo regulation: it accelerates the process of evaporation of sweat, reduces the production of moisture on the skin and keeps constant the body temperature.
Screening: it protects the body from absorbing the static energy, from electro smog and from UV rays.
Antibacterial: it respects and protects the skin from bacteria and pollutant dusts eliminating the risk of irritating allergies.
Performing: during physical exercise it reduces the concentration of lactic acid, improving blood circulation and oxygenation of cells.
Tecnofilati started in 1995 from the thirty-year experience of the textile group Abati. Specialized in the production of high-tech yarns, Tecnofilati created inside the company a research laboratory that has the most modern devices and equipments to test their innovative fibres.
