Few moths separate us from the great show of the Olympic Games, this year hosted in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A great event that is repeating, which arouses emotion, specially for us. Going back to 2012, our brand was protagonist with Asics, and now it’s time to tell you a story…
Resistex Carbon has been used to make the Olympic uniform of the national volleyball teams designed by ASICS.
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 (Bg) a company of the Abati Textile Group specialized in the production of technical yarns. In fact the innovative yarn has been used to make the Olympic uniforms provided by the technical sponsor ASICS.
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. Resistex®Carbon 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.
“Resistex Carbon 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. ”
Resistex Carbon 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. The first yarn Resistex born in the Tecnofilati laboratories was launched in 1998.
Today’s post is speaking about curtains, so important for your safety at home or in office, so different each other for manufacturing. Our yarns are used to make this kind of furnishing due to the properties which guarantee a high level of protection.
Each curtan has a differing degree of light absorption and heat insulating qualities. For maximum temperature control, the curtain gap to the window should be small, with minimum convection drafts below or above the curtain. Various architectural structures around the curtain can minimize these air drafts, but usually they are just used for decoration and make rooms feel more cozy.
A sheer or net curtain is one that is made from translucent fabric, such as a loosely woven polyester voile or a cotton lace. Sheer curtains allow a majority of light to be transmitted through the fabric, with the fabric weave providing a basic level of UV protection while retaining maximum visibility outward through the curtain. Sheer curtains are sometimes referred to as “privacy curtains” in reference to their screening abilities; during the day.
