At the ISPO Munich 2020 on January 27, 2020, BenQ Materials Corp., Taoyuan/Taiwan, will present the new brand Xpore and new innovations in fabrics for waterproof breathability and antibacterial protection.
The new Xpore uses Nanopore technology to let fabrics breathe properly. At the heart lies a unique, ultra-thin membrane with 10 billion nanopores per square inch. These pores are 20,000 times smaller than water droplets, and therefore perfectly shield from the rain. However, they are still large enough to allow water vapor from sweat and air currents to pass through.
Unlike competitive products, Xpore is free of harmful PFCs and solvents, meaning this technology achieves true breathability and keeps wearers healthy, dry and comfortable. The new membrane technology has received SGS and ITS certifications. ISO certification has been approved and applications are underway for TAF, Bluesign and Oeko-Tex for factories.
