2016, The Year of Textile Information
this year is going to expire and to change into 2017. Every week our team has shared with you that expertize which distinguishes our company by posting very useful tips to better know the textile world made of yarns and their properties.
Our engagement is totally related to upgrade your knowledge level in the textile field and give the answer to the following question:
which kind of textile should I choose for my sportswearing? For my Curtain? For my blankets?
Ok. It’s time to summarize everithing before saying goodbye to the 2016…
Radiating poweR. Silver has one of the lowest rates of radiance among all the elements, which means that it has a very low speed radiation of heat. Silver remains hot for a long time (as opposed to the other elements which retain heat for a very short time). The winter clothing in Resistex® Silver are able to absorb and store in its fibers for a very long time the heat that is not reflected on the body. For this reason, clothing made with winter Resistex® Silver keep the wearer warm much longer.
evapoRating poweR. Resistex® Silver promotes the natural transfer of humidity through the hydrophobic materials the same way the body does through evaporation. In a humid environment the conductive properties of Resistex® Silver increase the rate of moisture evaporation compared to the other hydrophobic materials. For this reason, clothing made with winter Resistex® Silver eliminate the body moisture faster.
Resistex® Bioceramic is a polyester fiber linked to bio-ceramic crystals and capable of performing an action highly beneficial to the human body.
On the one hand a natural absorbing function against harmful ultraviolet rays UV-A and UV-B impacting the skin causing irritation, sunburn and melanomas.
On the other reflective action of the rays of thermal nature constitutes a real shielding effect against the heat of the sun. The unique technology of Resistex® Bioceramic allows to lower the temperature of the inner surface of the fabric ensuring freshness and comfort during sports activities and exposure to the sun.
In human body metabolism, copper is an essential element for children development, bone strengthening, the formation of red and white blood cells, iron transport, cholesterol and glucose metabolism, heart contraction and brain development. A deficiency of copper, on the contrary, can lead to health problems. It’s present in a human adult in the extent of 1.4 – 2.1 mg per kilo of body weight, amount which is three times higher in the first years of life. An adult needs a daily intake of 0.9 mg of copper per day (as determined by the National Academy of Science, USA).
A daily intake of copper is therefore necessary to maintain a good balance, especially since, in normal conditions, the human body retains only 1% of ingested copper.
It is shown that Resistex® Carbon increases the efficiency of technical sportswear increasing muscular performances of the athlete. 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.
