Why Inox is perfect for Yarns?

However, it is not fully stain-proof in low-oxygen, high-salinity, or poor air-circulation environments. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required.

Stainless steel differs from carbon steel by the amount of chromium present. Unprotected carbon steel rusts readily when exposed to air and moisture. This iron oxide film (the rust) is active and accelerates corrosion by forming more iron oxide; and, because of the greater volume of the iron oxide, this tends to flake and fall away. Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium to form a passive film of chromium oxide, which prevents further surface corrosion by blocking oxygen diffusion to the steel surface and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal’s internal structure. Passivation occurs only if the proportion of chromium is high enough and oxygen is present.


Resistex & Centre for the Development of Training for Carbon

Resistex® Carbon is high performance, in particular, in disciplines that require prolonged physical effort over time and under high temperature ambient conditions. The performance of the athlete, intended as the percentage of metabolic energy that the muscular system is able to transform into mechanical energy, remains constant and even tends to grow during the thirty minutes of effort wearing the shirt Resistex® Carbon;

in particular it is observed a performance of 24.68% at 15 minutes against one of 24.93% at the end of 30 minutes.

On the contrary, by wearing a jersey in total polyester, the performance percentage tends to diminish over time during the exercise. So Resistex® Carbon delays the onset of fatigue during exercise.


Numerous tests have been ran in collaboration with Dr. David Susta, scientific director of the Centre for the Development of Training Como. The tests have compared the jersey Resistex® Carbon and other jerseys totally in polyester, worn by a group of athletes during a training done in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.

the increase in body temperature of the athletes resulted three times lower in those ones who wore Resistex® Carbon

respiratory parameters were better in people wearing Resistex® Carbon. For these athletes, the need for oxygen was lowered of 3 liters / minute, improving the respiratory quotient

the heart rate of the athletes who were wearing Resistex® Carbon was lower than 4 beats / minute respect the other ones. In a 4 hours run, this translates into about 1,000 heart beats less

it was also measured the concentration of lactic acid in capillary blood, with the result of about 12% less acid in those who trained wearing Resistex® Carbon.


Tech, the way for Yarns Evolution

After years of research, Resistex ® has identified in stainless steel (Inox) AISI 316 L, the only material able to meet all the regulations related to allergies and corrosion.

Resistex Inox ® conforms to the European 94/27 EC concerning  anti-allergic steel, and the alloy AISI 316 L, with a low carbon content (less than 0.03%) guarantees ,over time ,the  resistance to fabric oxidation.

The outstanding conductive features of Resistex ® Inox make the fabric antistatic and effective in the electromagnetic fields shielding, thus creating an immediate sense of well-being for the wearer, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria responsible for the premature tissue deterioration .
