Starting today, Leucadia offers a new finishing technique that, thanks to a groundbreaking resin treatment, gives fabric hydro-repelling characteristics only on one side maintaining a top-quality feel of the fabric, which means keeping the tactile sensation intact, just like the one found in an untreated fabric.
A further advantage of this kind of finishing is the improvement of the characteristics brought by potential subsequent treatments on the unprocessed part.
The best result of this hydro-repelling finishing can be obtained on natural fibers, for the unprocessed portion preserves its hydrophilic features, thus guaranteeing a superior comfort when in contact with the skin.
This treatment represents an alternative to the classic hydro-repelling finishing, which combines the characteristics of a technical textile with the comfort of a textile destined to apparel.
The fields of application of this new method range from outdoor to sportswear.
