  EMPEL™ textile finishing platform - Clean Chemistry, the foundation to a better long-term solution, uses Hydrogen and Carbon – the building blocks of everything found in nature – and eliminates the use of water. In traditional textile manufacturing, chemicals known as polymers are dissolved in water and then washed into the fabrics with a variety of complex machines. The problem with this old process, chemicals that wash-on with water, also wash-off with water. These water-based chemistries lack durability, uniformity and often involve many volatile chemicals dangerous to our health and our planet. Green Theme Technologies (GTT) starts with a water-free nature-based Hydrocarbon monomer solution, and molecularly bonds the solution to each fiber through polymerization. Fabrics treated with GTT's Hydrocarbon chemistry outperforms all existing industry standards and eliminates the toxic waste stream discharged when polluted factory water gets dumped into the environment.
  Endurall® - This innovative engineered yarn with friction reducing molecules creates fabrics and garments with improved lightweight comfort and added durability.

Fiber and Yarn Products offers a hang tag program to assist its customers with marketing this beneficial product.
  energear™ - This Schoeller technology ensures that the energy radiated by the body is reflected back to the wearer. Practical tests prove that this additional energy has a positive effect on performance and wellbeing.

Various stress tests have been performed to verify the function of energear™. Two identical outfits were tested, one with the energear™ finish and one without. Test subjects wearing energear™ experience proven positive effects.

  eVent® Fabrics - eVENT® fabric (technology) This a Direct Venting waterproof barrier is a significant advancement in ePTFE laminate technology. The propriety and patented Dry System technology provides a new standard for comfort by allowing perspiration to dissipate and vent without saturating the inside of the fabric. At the core of eVENT fabric is an ePTFE (expanded Polytetrafluoroethylen) film that has been rendered oil-repellant and thereby free from body-oil contamination, via a method that retains both the inherent open-pore structure of the membrane as well as its hydrophobic properties.
  eVent® WATERPROOF - eVent® fabrics' new product, eVent® WATERPROOF, provides, not only a breathable shelter from the rain, sleet, or snow, but also gives the wearer a dry and comfortable feeling. eVent fabrics was the first to engineer and use the patented Direct Venting technology, protecting the wearer from rain, but allowing sweat to escape instantly. The DIRECT VENTING™ MEMBRANE in eVent® WATERPROOF is a proprietary ePTFE waterproof multi-layer technology that instantly vents moisture vapor/perspiration and body heat to the fabric surface, so wearers remain comfortable in their eVent® WATERPROOF clothing while engaged in any activity.
  Evertex Fabrics - Evertex Fabrinology Ltd. manufactures wool/syntheeti knitted fabric blend, designed for temperature regulation through an evaporative cooling process to help the body maintain homeostasis, creating optimal comfort utilizing effective thermo- regulation capabilities, wicking, and quick dry management from its polyester fibers.

  ExpeDRY - Developed by ALLIED Feather+Down, ExpeDRY is a new innovative and disruptive ultra dry down featuring FUZE® technology for a chemical free alternative to hydrophobic-treated down. ExpeDRY works through a permanent and chemical-free bonding of non- toxic gold particles within the down cluster to aid in the evaporation of water molecules, causing the down to dry faster and stay dry in high humidity and extreme conditions. This helps to create a drier insulative chamber as the rate of increased evaporation is greater than the absorption rate of down in almost every real world situation. It also helps with moisture from within such as sweat in high-energy activities, which could ultimately lead to a more regulated warmth.
