Athletik Clothing Inc, has launched a sportswear collection with fabrics containing graphene together with a graphene textile material partner in Shandong Province, China.
As an innovative material with nano technology and derived from graphite, significantly improves performance for the benefits of athletes, professionals and sports enthusiasts.
The major characteristics of this smart fabric is its ability to act as a filter be¬tween the body and the external environment, ensuring the ideal temperature of the wearer. The warmth produced by the human body is dispersed in warm climates, and preserved and distributed evenly in cold climates. Further, graphene fabrics are electrostatic and bacteriostatic, sportswear made with such fabrics are able to reduce the friction with air and water to enable top sporting performance.
Athletik Clothing Inc. is an manufacturer of designer sportswear, underwear and outdoor clothing based on customers’ brands, designs and technical specifications. The company operates fabric mills and sewing mills in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu, China. With more than 200 Yamato flatlock sewing machines available, the company’s monthly production capacity is around 500,000 pcs.
Functions of Graphene Fabrics
Far Infrared Radiation
Graphene fabrics release far infrared rays with a wavelength identical to water molecules in human cells. When such rays radiates on human bodies, resonance occurs with water molecules in human cells. Human surface cells will be activated, and microcirculation of human subcutaneous tissue will be accelerated to generate heat, improve health and immunity.
Graphene fabrics have great effects on improving human microcirculation. Compared with normal fabrics, blood flow rate improves by 141.34%, number of hemocytes increases by 61.73%, velocity increases by 50.07% , temperature increases by 4.21%, i.e. 1.27 °C.
Anti-bacterial Graphene fabrics are intrinsically anti-bacterial without any treatment.
Graphene fabrics provide excellent moisture management performance. It absorbs moisture and perspiration rapidly to keep the wearer dry and comfort.
Anti-static With high conductivity, the resistivity on gra¬phene surface is extremely low.
Graphene fabrics are anti-static.
Graphene fabrics absorb UV to protect the wearer from UV radiations.
Green and ECO Material
BTEXCO uses a biomass graphene made with corn core cellulose as raw material. There is no chemical pollution in the whole process.
Graphene fabrics absorb heat from the sun and human body, store it in the fabric to keep the wearer warm.
Based on tests with Kaken, the fabric temperature is 16 °C higher than fabrics made with normal polyester when the fabric is exposed to the sun.
