Traditional cotton fabric absorbs moisture quickly and can become saturated, retaining as much as 20-40% more moisture than synthetic fabrics. It is this characteristic that limits cotton's ability to perform well in activewear and performance apparel products. However, the absorbency of cotton can be significantly reduced with TransDRY technology, resulting in faster drying performance. Cotton fabrics treated with this technology can be engineered to show a 2000% improvement in one-way transfer of perspiration to the outside of the fabric over untreated cotton and leading synthetics.
