New Water Repelling Nanotech Swimsuits Hit The Market

Abstract:
Sun Dry Swim, a company out of Brooklyn New York, has developed sports wear material that can repel water for swimmers using nanotechnology. The newly launched line of active wear fabric repels wetness and dries within moments after removing it from water can simply be "shaken out" to dry.

Amy Hardin, Sales Manager at Sun Dry Technologies explains the technology as "Optimal technical performance paired with ultimate comfort. Sun Dry Swim fabrics are treated using our proprietary methods with a nanotechnology process that is inert, UV stable, and completely harmless to skin. The non-toxic nanotechnology treatment is water based and environmentally friendly"

The fabric has an invisible nanotechnology mesh around each fabric fiber, creating a permanent water repelling material without interfering with the fabric weave. This effect creates an easy to clean, breathable protected surface with water resistant properties, the material cannot soak up liquid, while the fabric still looks and performs like top quality swimsuit fabric.
