Faytex Corp. — a Weymouth, Mass.-based developer of moisture-management fabrics — has partnered
with NanoHorizons™ Inc. — a State College, Pa.-based developer of nanoscale materials for a range
of industries including apparel — to offer its Dri-Lex® shoe lining material with NanoHorizons’
SmartSilver™ anti-odor/antimicrobial technology.
“Faytex is the industry’s recognized leader in high-performance footwear fabrics,” said
Dennis Schneider, director, sales and marketing, NanoHorizons. “Faytex and its Dri-Lex show lining
material present a perfect opportunity for NanoHorizons to showcase SmartSilver’s unmatched
anti-odor performance in a challenging odor-generating environment. SmartSilver’s nanoscale
technology enables Faytex to maintain all of Dri-Lex’s leadership comfort and moisture-movement
capabilities and add lab-proven antimicrobial performance — delivering the perfect solution.”
Faytex is currently working with Vista, Calif.-based Zoot Sports to incorporate the new
material into Zoot’s new line of footwear.
