What is 3XDRY®?
The Feelgood Technology 3XDRY® is a functional-finishing for all kinds of textiles. They stay three times dry.
Dry on the inside: Moisture caused by perspiration is quickly absorbed, transported away from the body and can evaporate faster.
Dry on the outside: Moisture is reliably repelled.
Dry in a flash: Textiles with 3XDRY®-finishing dry significantly faster than without 3XDRY®.
How does 3XDRY® work?
The 3XDRY®-Functional-finishing combines two technologies on just one textile: From the outside to the middle of the textile it is water repellent, while from the inside to the middle it is treated to absorb water. The optical, hand and air permeability features are not influenced by the treatment.
What effect does 3XDRY® have?
3XDRY® ensures a feelgood effect during all activities:
Diminishes perspiration marks
Just the textile-inside absorbs moisture. That’s why perspiration marks are as good as invisible from the outside.
Generates a cooling effect
With 3XDRY® perspiration evaporates close to the body. This supports the natural cooling function of the body and thus ensures more energy during active phases.
Improved dirt and water repellence
Textiles with 3XDRY®-finishing are water repellent and significantly less susceptible to dirt.
Since when is 3XDRY® on the market?
Schoeller Textil AG sold the first textile with the Feelgood Technology in 2001.
Is 3XDRY® patented?
Yes, 3XDRY® finishing is patented by Schoeller Technologies AG.
Which brands have taken 3XDRY® on board?
Schoeller, Alberto, Cloudveil, Columbia, Eider, Ems, Frauenschuh, Goldwin, Hugo Boss, K2 Korea, Mammut, Mello’s, Merkley, The North Face, Phenix, Ready About Gear, Rei, Salomon, Schöffel, Sprayway, Vaude, Wintergreen, etc.
How can you recognize 3XDRY®-products in shops?
Original-products with 3XDRY® are clearly marked with the product labels. Look out for the blue-orange logo or the black-orange hang tags.
What makes 3XDRY® different from competitor products?
3XDRY® is the only technology that displays hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties on a single layered textile. The combination of water repellence and moisture-management is unique in finishing procedures and is patented by Schoeller Technologies AG.
In which fields / markets is 3XDRY® suitable?
3XDRY® is particularly suitable for textiles that are directly worn on the skin (next-to-skin). For instance, tee shirts, pullovers, blouses, shirts, pants, or underwear. It makes sense for those who find themselves time after time in intensive, hectic, or hot environments – e.g. sport, daily work, outdoor activities or while traveling.
Which materials can be finished with 3XDRY®?
3XDRY® is applicable on all textiles (cotton, synthetics, etc.). Through the finishing, all natural fiber textiles (cotton or wool) become functional, while textiles made of synthetic fibers are even more functional.
Will the air permeability or hand properties of the material be affected by 3XDRY®?
3XDRY® neither has an influence on the air permeability nor the hand properties of a material.
How long does the finishing stay intact?
The wash permanence of 3XDRY® is circa 50 washing cycles. We recommend that textiles treated with 3XDRY® be ironed or tumble dried with 3XDRY®. No fabric softener should be used during the wash.
The feelgood effect of 3XDRY® has got weaker – what to do?
In order to guarantee the optimal function of 3XDRY® over a longer period of time, the product should be ironed or tumble dried after washing. Thereby the finishing can almost invariably often be regenerated.
Is there a certain washing detergent that I can’t use?
No fabric softener should be used that is water repellent or has hydrophilic properties, or both functions of 3XDRY® would be impaired.
What about quality assurance?
Every textile with 3XDRY®-finishing is tested beforehand and on reaching the quality standard is released for sale. Our cooperation partner Huntsman Textile Effects ensures a world wide quality network in over 120 countries.
