What Is Akwatek And Akwadyne?
AKWADYNE® is a registered trademark of Comfort Technologies, Inc licensed to Alice Lace Co., Ltd of Taiwan. Akwadyne® is a finish that is applied to nylon based fabrics to help warm or cool the body during outdoor activity. Akwadyne® pulls moisture away from the body, and creates a vapour barrier that cools the body in warm temperatures, and warms the body in cold temperatures. Unlike most moisture transport fabrics that rely on fabric construction or chemical coatings to pull sweat away from the body, Akwadyne® modifies the molleculer structure of the fiber providing a "chemical magnet" which uses the inherent properties of water to move it away from the body as needed. Termed "electrochemical transport", this process separates and moves molecules of water using the positive and negative charges contained in each individual molecule. As a result, garments made of Akwadyne® can heat one area of the body while cooling another.
