New Toko Active Dry
Gets You Dry in Record Time
Most sports demand speed from the sportswear as well as from the athlete. The ability to quickly transport perspiration water vapor away from the skin and immediately release it to the atmosphere is a property of functional textiles that enables athletes to perform to the best of their ability. The special new type of textile-care solution, Toko Active Dry, promotes the hydrophilic property of textiles and gets functional sportswear drying in record quick time – all that through the simple act of washing.
Modern functional apparel is given special coatings while still at the manufacturing stage. Subsequent mechanical abrasion during normal washing and wearing, however, slowly wears this coating away. Toko Active Dry renews the textile coating and restores functionality; tests have shown that it can even improve it. Sportswear given the Toko treatment quickly transports moisture away from the skin and distributes it across a wide surface area so it rapidly evaporates into the atmosphere. This capillary action, as the experts call it, is accelerated by the hydrophilic nature of the treatment – you can really feel the difference. The benefit for the athlete can be clearly felt: no more damp clothing, just pleasant dryness for microclimate control and breathability that works.
Toko Active Dry also offers a number of other advantages: apparel becomes appreciably suppler; antimicrobial additives guard against the build up of odor-causing bacteria; the treatment has an antistatic effect; and it maintains an ideal next-to-skin climate. Applying the treatment is child’s play: Toko Active Dry can either be put in the fabric conditioner compartment during a normal washing machine cycle, or the sportswear can be soaked in the solution for 30 minutes in a basin. Simply air dry, and it’s done!
