HIGH IQ Lasting Colour performance assurance program is powered by specially selected NOVACRON dyes. Fabrics made using the HIGH IQ Lasting Colour program will not fade, and there is little risk of colour staining on other garments during washing.
HIGH IQ Lasting Colour Eco performance assurance program relies on Huntsman’s award-winning AVITERA SE reactive dyes to reduce water and energy consumption by up to 50% compared to best-available technologies. Excellent washing-off performance shortens processing time and increases productivity.
HIGH IQ Cool Comfort moisture management program allows garments to breathe while transporting moisture away from the body through its quick-dry properties. The unique technology reduces post-exercise chill, making the effects highly suitable for sports and active wear.
