Porelle® performance ACTIVE is a range of hydrophilic membranes designed for active apparel. Available in a variety of options tailored for use in garments or footwear, they offer consistent performance properties.
Porelle® performance ACTIVE membranes have a solid structure that physically stops water droplets and wind passing through the garment. When laminated to a fabric, the membrane can achieve levels of waterproofness in excess of 10,000 mm during water column tests and will retain this performance after multiple washes and flex cycles.
The performance properties are backed by a stringent quality control process that assesses waterproof consistency, testing waterproofness before and after multiple wash cycles and across multiple points of the membrane.
Porelle® performance ACTIVE membranes are produced using a novel coating process, designed and developed in-house to create a highly uniform structure, which is the key to consistent waterproofness and durability in use.
SOFT AND EASY HANDLING PERFORMANCE
The porelle® performance ACTIVE range consists of soft, tactile films with excellent thermal stability. The membranes are easy to handle in high temperature adhesive or flame bonding lamination processes and other temperature sensitive operations, such as garment or bootie seam taping. They are also less prone to pin-holing and shrinkage, giving high productivity yields.
