Dressing for the occasion

Abstract:
With technology, work apparel has moved beyond leather boots and cotton/poly blends, and it now incorporates surprisingly up-to-date innovations in nanotechnology and material science.

Among the latest applications touted by Cincinnati-based Fechheimer, a uniform manufacturer since 1842, is a new finish for its 65/35 Poly/Cotton Twill Command Wear shirts and trousers called IntelliDry with Triple Action StainSmart 3, developed by textile supplier Milliken & Company. Fechheimer attests that liquids are repelled (on the outside), perspiration is absorbed (on the inside), and stains are released in the wash. And the ColorSmart deep-dye technology holds color over repeated washings.

NanoHorizons, an emerging leader in applied nanoscale materials and solutions, provides SmartSilver anti-odor and antimicrobial technology, a nanoscale-engineered additive to create permanent anti-odor and antimicrobial protection in fibers and fabrics. It delivers the antimicrobial power of pure silver without forcing designers to compromise in areas such as dye performance, stretch, durability or manufacturability. SmartSilver forms permanent bonds with fiber structures ranging from natural cotton to rayon, polyester, nylon, polypropylene and polyurethane.
