The Italian women’s and men’s national volleyball teams will participate to the Olympic Games in London with a further ally: the yarn ResistexCarbon by Tecnofilati a company of the Abati Textile Group specialized in the production of technical yarns.

It has been used for years by athletes of all around the world and of all sports for its technical features and for the guarantee of high performance. ResistexCarbon is a technologically advanced yarn with screening properties in order to protect the body dissipating the static energy and with functions of thermo regulation and perspiration that accelerate the evaporation of sweat, reduce the moisture on the skin and maintain constant the body temperature. It is also antibacterial as it respects and protects the skin from bacteria and performing as it helps to reduce the concentration of lactic acid during exercise.

"ResistexCarbon comes from our research laboratories - says Andrea Abati, CEO Tecnofilati - this is a yarn with unique technical features composed of a continuous filament of conductive material based on active carbon and textile fibres.

These high-tech features make it perfect for sportswear. The yarn has been specially studied and designed to favour the highest performance of the athletes - says Abati – For this reason it is to be considered a special ally for the Olympic Games. Now we want just to say good luck to our national women's and men’s volleyball team. "

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.
