Highly moisture-permeable material

About biotex-AQD

● Outer layer … Cordura nylon® 330 denir
● Base layer … Nonporous menbrane
● Inside layer … Nylon tricot

biotex-AQD is suitable for both underwater and land-based activities that combine durability and moisture permeability while having high flexibility.

Adopted "nonporous membrane" boasting water pressure resistance of 25,000 mm as the basic material. This material prevents water with a diameter of 100 μm from penetrating and realizes high moisture permeability and waterproofness by permeating water vapor with a diameter of about 0.0004 μm through a microscopic intermolecular clearance constituted by micro randomly.

In addition, "Cordura nylon® 330 denir" which boasts overwhelming abrasion resistance is used to the outer layer. Featuring heavy duty, it demonstrates outstanding durability even in harsh fields such as rescue work and work diving. It realizes overwhelming squeeze resistance, pressure resistance, moisture permeability and durability compared to conventional products.
It draws a line with the conventional moisture permeable fabric which was plagued by instability of waterproofness etc.
This material takes away the heat of vaporization by efficiently dissipating the sweat to the outside, giving a refreshing feeling on the shipboard or on the land even in summer. It realized completely different dimension comfort from neoprene dry suit and conventional shell dry suit.

Performance comparison table

The moisture permeability of the fabric is measured by the B-1 test method of JIS L 1099:2012
