drirelease fabric technology


Our eco-friendly solutions keep customers cool, dry, fresh and comfortable — whatever the application — in high-performance athletic wear, sportswear, intimates or sleepwear.

Because fabrics made with drirelease technology do not alter its fibers with chemicals of any kind, performance is permanent. It will not “wash out” over time. The brilliance of drirelease fabrics is the patented combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers that allow them to engage with moisture naturally to dramatically improve how wetness is pulled from the skin and released into the air. Roll over the text next to the detailed fiber illustration below the benefit icons to see the “engine” that powers drirelease products.

fibers that perform


INHERENT ECO-FRIENDLY BLEND FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

drirelease technology is not a surface application. Performance properties are “built into” each thread of our fabrics with a patented blend of 85-90% hydrophobic to 10-15% hydrophilic fibers.


PATENTED FOR PERFORMANCE

drirelease fabrics offer a patented blend of 85-90% synthetic, hydrophobic (water repelling) fibers and 10-15% natural, hydrophilic (water absorbing) fibers. The built-in combination efficiently pulls moisture and perspiration away from the skin and pushes it to the exterior of the fabric where it can evaporate quickly. That’s why clothing made with DR always feels soft and stays dry.

PERMANENT MOISTURE WICKING

The primary obstacle of most wicking fabrics is water. Chemically treated performance fabrics typically lose their ability to wick moisture over time with each washing. Not drirelease. Our moisture-transport system is woven into the yarn and delivers consistent wicking that doesn’t wash out.

NEUTRALIZE ODORS NATURALLY WITH FRESHGUARD

drirelease and FreshGuard work together to absorb moisture and quickly release it through the fabric and into the air, which helps in minimizing odor creation in garments. Neither an antimicrobial nor an antibacterial (both of which attack bacteria), FreshGuard is friendly to the environment.
