Swift Galey develops H2tech 360 with activated comfort system

Swift Galey builds fabric systems tailored to each customer's requirements and has developed several exclusive, proprietary technologies, including H 2tech hydrophobic/hydrophilic technology and Ultra Dye technology for superior color retention. It also licenses certain technologies developed by other companies to extend the range of possibilities offered in its fabrics.

“From an innovation standpoint, Swift Galey is very strong. Relative to our competitors, we offer a lot more finishes, colors and SKUs,” said Paul Tantillo, managing director, Uniform Division. “And, we have never had fabric returned for performance.”

Swift Galey introduced its original H 2 technology in 2006 to offer water and oil repellency as well as moisture-management benefits on fabrics sold through the company's Uniform Division. The H 2tech product line also offers add-ons such as H 2ultra dye technology for color retention and H 2flex, which adds Dow XLA, Lycra or mechanical stretch for shape retention and ease of movement. The technology stands up to as many as 30 home launderings and in some customer wear-testing has withstood many more.

The company now has developed H 2tech 360 with Activated Comfort System, offering a hydrophobic water- and oil-repellent/soil-release function on the outside, a much improved moisture-wicking function on the inside and superior color retention. “The wicking is significantly better than previous generations, and we are also making breakthroughs on color retention,” Tantillo said. “H 2tech 360 utilizes premium technology to give better washdown and better fastness; if you want even better, you add ultra dye.” H 2flex is also an option with H 2tech 360, and the company is working on an antimicrobial treatment for some markets.
