MUNICH, Germany — November 21, 2018 — As the tradition goes, twice a year the functional fabric fair Performance Days selects the most innovative fabrics, accessories and finishes for their Performance Forum. This year, two functional finishes from textile innovator Devan Chemicals —Moov&Cool® & R-Vital™ — were chosen. R-Vital was awarded with the ‘100% Jury Like’ stamp, meaning all the members of the jury selected the sample, a recognition only granted to a handful of the 1,400 applications.
R-Vital – ‘100% Jury Like’
R-Vital is a range of microencapsulated active ingredients that boost textiles with anti-oxidative effects. The microcapsules, attached to the fibre, deliver antioxidants to the body upon friction. The ‘100% Jury Like’ sample is treated with a well-chosen blend of Ubiquinol (Q10), Sea kelp and Thyme oil, which enhances recovery after sports performances. As R-Vital is also suitable for other market segments, such as bedding textiles, Devan enables its customers to compose their own blend, allowing them to create truly unique products and hence properties.
Marleen Van der Auwera, BU Manager Health & Wellness is happy to see that R-Vital is getting some more attention. “When the technology was first launched about a year ago, we noticed people had some difficulties understanding the concept because it was so revolutionary to them”, she said. “But this recognition really indicates more and more people are seeing its potential.”
Moov&Cool is a patented polymer technology, providing a cool comfort feel through a combination of durable heat absorption capacity and a unique, balanced moisture transfer system. By lowering the body core temperature, the finishing treatment helps professional athletes to take their performance to the next level. Furthermore, the technology is also designed to enhance comfort during physical activities of recreational athletes.
Moov&Cool was first launched at Performance Days in April and will be presented in full detail at the upcoming edition, which will take place November 28-29 in Munich, Germany.
