Evolon® microfilament fabrics are breathable, which means they are permeable to water vapor and air. This is due to the extremely fine microfilaments, which create millions of “micro” channels through which air can flow.
These microfilaments also provide superior moisture management. Both water and perspiration are absorbed by Evolon® fabrics, which then dry very quickly, wicking moisture away from the skin.
In industrial applications such as technical packaging, breathability also allows solvent residues to evaporate through Evolon® fabrics.
