Velcro USA Unveils Evaptex™ High-performance Fabric

Velcro USA Inc., Manchester, N.H., a global conglomerate offering a range of products including Velcro® hook and loop fasteners, now offers Velcro Evaptex™ woven fabric that combines breathability and moisture-wicking properties, allowing air circulation through the fabric while maintaining a neutral temperature for the wearer.

The machine-washable, laminated two-layered fabric features a patent-pending evaporation technology and silver ion-based antimicrobial properties. The next-to-skin surface has a very soft, comfortable hand, and the outer loop surface is compatible with Velcro hook materials to facilitate fastener placement and adjustment. Targeted applications include orthopedic braces, sleep apnea headgear, tracheotomy straps and other medical devices; as well as turnout gear and fire protection suits and other emergency responder applications.
