DuPont, a US-based manufacturer of advanced materials, has unfurled a new tech-driven material technology, Intexar, dedicated to smart clothing.
The garment technology has been revealed under the new brand name DuPont Intexar and is currently up on display at the ongoing Outdoor Retailer Trade Show in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Intexar technology consists of stretchable electronic inks along with flexible films, which are seamlessly submerged in the Intexar garments. This submerging process enables Intexar transform normal fabrics into wearable technology and thereby provides unprecedented comfort to the wearer. The technology also improves stretchability in garments irrespective of repeated elongation.
Additionally, the wearer can access the biometric data for real-time monitoring as the garments come with in-built sensors that can track heart rate through ECG; respiration; and muscle movement.
The newly launched innovative garments can also endure more than 100 washes without affecting the stretchability.
The Intexar technology will further assist DuPont to tap into multiple applications besides athletic apparels and help in fulfilling the company’s commitment to making smart and advanced clothing mainstream. Also, Intexar will help DuPont in eliminating bumps and seams that are generally found in other wearables.
“Intexar is a game-changing technology and will truly move the needle in making smart garments as comfortable as regular fitness clothing,” explains Michael Burrows, Global Business Manager, DuPont Advanced Materials.
