USA: DuPont un­veils in­no­va­tion in gar­ment tech­nol­ogy

Stitch World - - TECH TRACK -

DuPont, a US- based man­u­fac­turer of ad­vanced ma­te­ri­als, has un­furled a new tech- driven ma­te­rial tech­nol­ogy, In­texar, ded­i­cated to smart cloth­ing.

The gar­ment tech­nol­ogy has been re­vealed un­der the new brand named DuPont In­texar and was on dis­play at the Out­door Re­tailer Trade Show in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The In­texar tech­nol­ogy con­sists of stretch­able elec­tronic inks along with flex­i­ble films, which are seam­lessly sub­merged in the In­texar gar­ments. This sub­merg­ing process en­ables In­texar trans­form nor­mal fab­rics into wear­able tech­nol­ogy and thereby pro­vides un­prece­dented com­fort to the wearer. The tech­nol­ogy also im­proves stretch­a­bil­ity in gar­ments ir­re­spec­tive of re­peated elon­ga­tion.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the wearer can ac­cess the bio­met­ric data for real-time mon­i­tor­ing as the gar­ments come with in- built sen­sors that can track heart rate through ECG; res­pi­ra­tion; and mus­cle move­ment.

The newly launched in­no­va­tive gar­ments can also en­dure more than 100 washes with­out af­fect­ing the stretch­a­bil­ity.

The In­texar tech­nol­ogy will fur­ther as­sist DuPont to tap into mul­ti­ple ap­pli­ca­tions be­sides ath­letic ap­par­els and help in ful­fill­ing the com­pany’s com­mit­ment for mak­ing smart and ad­vanced cloth­ing main­stream. Also, In­texar will help DuPont in elim­i­nat­ing bumps and seams that are gen­er­ally found in other wear­ables. “In­texar is a game- chang­ing tech­nol­ogy and will truly move the nee­dle in mak­ing smart gar­ments as com­fort­able as reg­u­lar fit­ness cloth­ing,” ex­plains Michael Bur­rows, Global Busi­ness Man­ager, DuPont Ad­vanced Ma­te­ri­als.
