Could new Nanotex/Cotton Inc. tech apply to home?
August 15, 2016,
Bloomfield Hills, Mich. & Cary, N.C. – The new Nanotex “Dry Inside” technology for cotton apparel may also have applications in home textiles.
“Dry Inside has had the most success in knits,” said Crypton vp Bart Kennedy. “We’re just getting started in wovens.”
Home products that might be best suited to use the technology would include towels and bath mats, he told H&TT.
Nanotex Dry Inside applies a technical application to the back of the fabric, allowing moisture to move away from the body through invisible channels. Once moved from the inside to the outside of the garment, the moisture spreads and evaporates more readily, leaving the wearer dry and comfortable without clogging the fabric weave or compromising the look, feel or breathability of the fabric, according to Cyrpton.
Kennedy said QVC was a great platform for the debut of theSerta SuperSoft microfiber sheet set with Nanotex cooling technology. “There are a hundred million people watching QVC, so it’s like free marketing.”
