Pontetorto's Dryfast Adaptive offers innovative dynamic comfort

19
Nov '11
The latest addition to an innovative product range, Dryfast Adaptive by Pontetorto is a next-to-skin fabric that reacts dynamically to changes in body temperature, adjusting to provide the ideal comfort level whatever the conditions.

At Performance Days this November, Pontetorto will be introducing Dryfast Adaptive, a new functional fabric group that works with the skin's natural process of moisture evaporation to offer dynamic comfort. The body controls its temperature by regulating moisture evaporation through the skin; moisture evaporation provides both cooling and thermal comfort depending on conditions.

Dryfast Adaptive is based on an innovative hydrofunctional polymer developed by the Swiss firm HeiQ. At low temperatures, the Adaptive polymer absorbs and stores moisture in a film surrounding each fiber. At high temperatures, the wicking process increases and the polymer changes its structure by releasing the previously stored moisture.

In warm conditions, the dynamic evaporation system helps cool the skin and provides enhanced wearer comfort. In cool conditions, wicking and evaporation are dynamically reduced, keeping the body dry and comfortably warm.

Tests have demonstrated that the humidity evaporation rate of a 100% polyester Dryfast Adaptive fabric is up to 3 times faster than an untreated 100% polyester fabric at 35°C. The Adaptive polymer is secured to the surface of the textile providing a lasting effect.

Dryfast Adaptive by Pontetorto controls fabric dryness (through dynamic moisture wicking), its cooling potential (through dynamic moisture evaporation) and ultimately its thermal buffering (dynamic comfort). In addition, Dryfast Adaptive is bluesign certified.

Pontetorto has been producing quality fabrics through high levels of expertise and innovation for over half a century.

Founded in 1952, the mill is a recognized leader both locally and in the fashion industry where it has earned high visibility and standing. This has been achieved through a strategy that combines traditional and forward fabrics, the result of constant investment in R&D and focus on novelty, considered essential for continuing growth. In 1984, at a time when product diversification was not yet regarded as a viable company strategy, Pontetorto was the first mill in Europe to develop a range of Pile fleece fabrics for activewear.

Tecnopile, the Pontetorto registered trademark for activewear fabrics, helped establish the company's reputation worldwide, and was the result of ongoing testing and development of advanced materials and processes.

Today Pontetorto is seen as a company that successfully combines tradition, innovation, creativity and superior technical expertise thanks to intuition and high entrepreneurial skills. The most impressive outcome of this perfect blend has been the capacity not only to preserve but even to gain market share in the recent challenging years.
