February 02, 2016 - Italy

In its Serates Materia hi tech fabric collection, Serates is presenting the Plu-Mat line of extremely fine and ultralight latest-generation fabrics at Munich Fabric Start.

As per a Fulgar press release, developed using Fulgar hi-tech fibre named Nanofibra, the new Plu-Mat fabrics by Serates are a combination of high technical performance, light weight and pleasant feel.

“The latest breakthrough in nylon 6/6, designed by Fulgar's laboratories in Italy, Nanofibra makes it possible to create fabrics with an incredibly soft hand and silky look,” Fulgar said.

Made using thread with a diameter of 7 microns, Nanofibra offers extreme lightness and high opacity without compromising on the abrasion resistance properties typical of fabrics made with traditional multifilament yarns.

The fabrics in the new Plu-Mat line are dyed and finished using a low-temperature process developed by Serates to create a unique and sustainable fabric.

According to Fulgar, a special production cycle makes Plu-Mat fabrics a highly-effective barrier to the passage of air making them the ideal solution for ultralight padded jackets with a silky look.

“The outstanding wind-resistance and breathability offered by the new Serates fabrics means they are perfect for unlined garments to fold and slip into a pocket,” the company informed. (AR)
