Hydrofil® - Hydrofil® Nylon is a registered trademark of AlliedSignal Performance Fibers. It is a highly absorbent and quick drying nylon for knit, woven, and nonwoven moisture management fabric systems. It has comfort characteristics like cotton and can hold 15% of its weight in water and not feel damp. Hydrofil is used in linings for outerwear, gloves, hats, activerwear, and footwear and base layer apparel.
  Hygro™ - Moisture-responsive fabrics produced through the use of the Hygro™ process. In this research, the reversible dimensional changes of hygroscopic yarns are utilized to develop responsive fabric structures which widen or narrow their openings depending on moisture content. The process is also used to make terry toweling fabric. In this process, the pile yarn is woven with cotton weft and warp yarns to produce terry fabrics. The fabric is then washed in warm water to dissolve the PVA fibers. By dissolving the PVA fibers, a hollow air space is produced throughout the pile yarn, corresponding to an increase in the air space in the pile yarn. By increasing the air space in the pile yarn, the resulting towels are softer and bulkier than standard cotton towels.
