Sympatex to exhibit again at the fabric fair Lineapelle in Milan
Munich / Unterföhring, 2nd February 2016 – After the successful launch in September 2015, Sympatex Technologies will now also introduce “Climate Technology® Seamless” for the occupational safety sector at the Lineapelle fair (23rd – 25th February 2016). The innovative outer fabric technology offers waterproof knitted shafts to use in any season. Together with its longterm Italian distribution partner PIDIGI S.p.A., the ecological alternative among functional textile specialists will present high-performance technologies as well as the latest laminate developments in the footwear sector at the leading international fair for leather goods in Milan.
After the successful launch of the new highly functional outer fabric technology “Climate Technology® Seamless” for the “City and Sportswear” sector, Sympatex now offers – for the first time – laminated knitted legs for customers in the occupational safety sector. The new products are 100% waterproof and windproof thanks to the Sympatex membrane. In addition, they are highly breathable, have a very high abrasion resistance as well as an extreme tear resistance, and they are ISO 20335-7 certified. Further advantages: The leg is seamless, so it is only taped with one seam at the heel. The customer can choose between a wide range of colours and knitting patterns. Thanks to the material mix of the 100% recyclable “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane and the hydrophobic knitted outer material, the products can be used in any season.
Moreover, “Moisture-tech® by Sympatex” has become increasingly popular in the occupational safety sector: Sympatex shoe customers who work in the fields of fire fighting, justice, police and customs are very interested in the high-performance lining technology. It is used in working boots as well as shoes for the daily work in service. Due to the extremely absorbent material, moisture is quickly transported away from the foot and is kept away from the lining by an outward suction effect. The advantage is a high level of comfort and dry feet for maximum performance in all weathers.
