What is PTFE NanoGLIDE®?

PTFE NanoGLIDE® is the most advanced fabric on the market.

Utilizes special molecule (PTFE) to achieve friction reduction properties on the fiber and fabric surface when wet or dry

The particles are distributed in great numbers creating a massive surface area on the fabric

The PTFE molecule allows air to move freely through the pores creating a large area for vapor, water and air to pass through minimizing wetting out

PTFE behaves differently based on the presence or absence of humidity. If high humidity it uses the energy to improve evaporation, if dry it returns that energy to the skin and improves insulation

These PTFE features and benefits provide immense fabric versatility

The Benefits

What are the benefits of PTFE to help the human body thermoregulate sweat and friction?

PTFE is a fluorocarbon solid

PTFE is a fluorocarbon solid

PTFE is a high-molecular-weight compound consisting wholly of carbon and fluorine.

PTFE is 1) hydrophobic: neither water nor water-containing substances wet PTFE, as fluorocarbons demonstrate mitigated London dispersion forces due to the high electro-negativity of fluorine.
