In 1979, the American company Malden Mills Industries Inc. introduced the first fleece fabric to the market and began marketing its products under the Polartec brand. Since then, the manufacturer has continued to develop his products and has been able to develop such comprehensive know-how and experience in the production of functional textiles.
Due to its special features, Polartec fleece is mainly used for outdoor and sports wear. Since 2007, the company has been listed as Polartec® LLC. Polartec® LLC has more than 400 high-performance materials in its product line and is the world leader in functional textiles.
The material consists of robust polyester yarns. Despite their low weight, the fabrics have excellent insulation properties. They transport the sweat from the skin to the outside and are quick-drying, so the body stays warm and dry. Outdoor athletes particularly appreciate Polartec®'s breathability, elasticity and freedom of movement and therefore always enjoy to rely on jackets and vests made of Polartec® Thermal Pro®.
In general, functional materials are less often to wash, in order to maintain their functions and textures for as long as possible. In addition, you should definitely pay attention to the sewn into the clothing washing instructions! Polartec® fleece can be washed at low temperatures in delicate cycle. Polartec® also recommends using detergents sparingly and avoiding fabric softeners, otherwise the pores of the membrane may clog and the fibers may loose their conductivity.
We at Martini Sportswear, we know that Polartec® Thermal Pro® is the most technically advanced thermal insulation fabric. The fabrics combine a wide variety of patterns and surface structures and can therefore impress with highly functional properties. An excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and a wide range of use are ideal for Martini Sportswear to use the fabrics to design stylish and functional outdoor clothing such as jackets, pants and shirts.
