Revolutionizing Breathable Waterproof Textiles with Sustainable Innovation

waterproof textiles

The world of technical textiles is constantly evolving, driven by the demand for apparel and gear that offers the perfect balance of comfort and protection. For outdoor enthusiasts and professionals alike, battling the elements shouldn’t come at the cost of feeling suffocated or weighed down by bulky clothing. Nibertex is here to redefine expectations with our groundbreaking electrospun PU membranes, ushering in a new era of breathable waterproof textiles.

Breaking Barriers in Breathability and Waterproofing

Traditional waterproof membranes often fall short in one crucial aspect: breathability. While they effectively shield you from rain and snow, they can trap perspiration, leading to discomfort and a build-up of moisture. Nibertex tackles this challenge head-on with our innovative technology.

Our membranes are crafted from electrospun polyurethane (PU). This advanced process involves creating ultra-fine fibers with a unique 3D pore structure. These microscopic pores are small enough to repel water droplets, yet large enough to allow water vapor – in the form of sweat – to escape freely. This translates to unparalleled breathability, keeping you dry and comfortable even during intense activity.

Unmatched Performance:

  • Exceptional Air Permeability: Nibertex boasts an air permeability of up to 0.4 CFM (cubic feet per minute), exceeding the industry standards for breathability. This allows for superior air circulation and moisture management, preventing you from overheating and feeling clammy.
  • Superior Waterproofing: Despite its exceptional breathability, Nibertex delivers outstanding waterproof protection. Our membranes surpass a hydrostatic pressure of 10,000 mm H2O, meaning they can withstand heavy rain and snow without compromising dryness.

The Benefits of Electrospun PU Membranes:

  • Lightweight and Flexible: The electrospinning process results in a remarkably thin and lightweight membrane. This translates to comfortable, non-restrictive clothing that allows for a full range of motion.
  • 4-Way Stretch: Nibertex membranes are designed with inherent 4-way stretch, seamlessly adapting to your movements and providing a natural, unrestricted feel.
  • Durable Performance: Our membranes are engineered for long-lasting performance, retaining their waterproof and breathable properties even after repeated washing and wear.

Sustainable Innovation: A Commitment to a Cleaner Future

At Nibertex, we believe in achieving peak performance without compromising on environmental responsibility. Unlike many traditional waterproof membranes that rely on Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), Nibertex is proudly 100% PFAS-free.

PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals linked to various environmental and health concerns. By eliminating them from our production process, we are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future for the textile industry.

Sustainable Solutions:

  • PFAS-Free: Nibertex utilizes a C0-based Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment, a safer and more eco-friendly alternative to PFAS for water repellency.
  • Reduced Waste: The electrospinning process minimizes material waste, contributing to a more responsible manufacturing approach.

Endless Applications: Where Comfort Meets Protection

Nibertex’s versatility makes it a perfect choice for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Sportswear: From high-performance running gear to hiking apparel, Nibertex keeps athletes dry and comfortable during strenuous activities.
  • Outerwear: Our membranes are ideal for jackets, parkas, and other outerwear, providing exceptional protection from rain, snow, and wind.
  • Gloves: Nibertex ensures waterproof and breathable protection for hands, keeping them dry and comfortable in any weather condition.
  • Shoes: Waterproof yet breathable footwear is essential for outdoor adventures. Nibertex membranes make it possible to create high-performance shoes that keep your feet dry and comfortable.
  • Military Wear: Soldiers and other professionals working in harsh environments require reliable protection from the elements. Nibertex offers the perfect balance of breathability and waterproofing for demanding situations.
