The power of evaporation.
MST microfiber technology utilizes very fine fibers that are made into strands fibers called filaments. Each filament is less than 1 decitex in measure – finer than a strand of human hair. Each filament has a slightly different performance capability and multiple strands are twisted together to form a fine yarn. This unique blend of filaments, and their configuration within the yarn, creates a greater surface area for moisture to travel along. These yarns are knitted together in a specific pattern which increases the speed of moisture movement through the fabric.
MST is a three step process:
1. As the body perspires, moisture is transferred from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric;
2. The moisture spreads over the outer capillary layer of the fabric at an accelerated pace;
3. This disbursement process allows the outer air to evaporate the moisture into the atmosphere.
As moisture is pulled away from the body it carries with it the body’s built up heat, helping to regulate body temperature. This is an invaluable process as it also minimizes excessive temperature drops in the body during the cool down period after intense physical activity. MST technology reduces the amount of energy required to stay at a comfortable body temperature which allows for optimal physical performance.
