Fast drying fabric : Property of a product that allows it to dry quickly, thanks to its composition or treatme

G124X124-0793-respirant

Breathing : Fabric able to wick moisture from the body to the exterior of a garment.

 

Protections:

G124x124-00785-imperrespirant

Breathable-waterproof : Fabric providing water protection while also wicking moisture away from the body to a  garment’s exterior.

G124x124-00784-impermeable

Waterproof : Fabric providing waterproofing to the exterior surface of the garment.

G124x124-00779-deperlant

Repellent : Treatment or construction allowing liquid to run off a surface and provide dirt resistance.

G124x124-00796-windproff

Wind-proof : Property of a fabric that consists of blocking wind, through a weave, impregnation or membrane.

G124x124-00777-climatique

Climatic : Fabric to protect the body from external weather conditions.

Structures:

G124x124-00788-monostretch

Mono-stretch : A vertically or horizontally extendible material, which regains its initial size after stretching.

G124x124-00776-bistretch

Bi-stretch : A vertically and horizontally extendible material, which regains its initial size after stretching.

G124x124-00789-naturellementstretch

Naturally stretch : An elastane-free fabric that stretches in the warp and/or the weft, which regains its initial  dimensions after stretching.

Multi-layers : Assembly of supple materials and textiles to combine qualities and functionalities.

 

Resistance:

G124x124-00775-antiuv
