WATER AND OIL REPELLENCE
Consumer demands for better stain protection properties are ever increasing.
Nu Dimension addresses such demands by offering active protection in the form of repellence of water, water-based fluids, oil, oil-based fluids, and alcohol, not mere passive protection against stains that eventually require laundering. Coffee, red wine, juices, sauces, and oils are examples of substances that are not absorbed by the cloth, and are easily removed
During fabric processing, the protective agent dispersion surrounds each fiber with an invisible
protective film. This durable film provides excellent maintenance and durability of quality cotton apparel.
While the protective agent surrounds individual fibers, the fiber interspaces are retained. The breathability thus remains intact.
DUALITY OF REPELLENCE AND ABSORPTION
Nu Dimension’s processing utilizes a finishing technology which results in water repellence on the face of the fabric, and water absorption on the fabric side that is close to the body
Moisture is repelled on the outside and perspiration is absorbed on the inside.
The perspiration produced by the body is carried away by the moisture-attracting fibers, is spread over a wide area, and thus evaporates quickly, thereby supporting the body’s own cooling function. Since the face of the fabric repels moisture, perspiration is prevented from escaping to the outside. Therefore, perspiration marks are greatly minimized, and jackets worn over shirts are protected from the effects of perspiration.
PFOA and PFOS
The products we use do not contain detectable amounts of PFOA and PFOS which are members of a synthetic chemical group linked to several human health problems. They have been extensively used in cookware to avoid stickiness, paper packaging, carpeting, and fire fighting foam, as a means of imparting stain resistance.
