Moisture management technologies: innovation in performance and comfort
published in Issue 73, March 2022
Moisture management is the process of transporting moisture in the form of perspiration away from the skin to the outer surface of a garment where it can evaporate. As such, moisture management is a key factor in efforts to maximise wearer comfort during physical activity. Originally, garments incorporating moisture management technologies were designed specifically for individuals who regularly engage in strenuous physical activity, such as extreme athletes, firefighters and the military. However, given the comfort which they provide, moisture management garments are proving to be increasingly popular in applications which are less technical, such as athleisure apparel, loungewear and sleepwear. Much research effort has been concentrated in recent years on enhancing the functionality of moisture management technologies, and the latest innovations in moisture management fabrics boast additional properties such as antimicrobial efficacy, odour control and ultraviolet (UV) protection. One of the most exciting developments in this field has been the introduction of fabrics which provide a cooling sensation as well as transporting moisture. In the years ahead, the pace of development is likely to accelerate as fabric and garment manufacturers compete to enhance the comfort properties of their product offerings further. There will be a significant increase in the affordability, availability and choice of multifunctional garments, and this should foster continued growth in the market for moisture management fabrics.
