NEWS – Optimer Brands receives ECO Passport Certification from Oeko-Tex for its DRICOMFORT® GEO 365 technology.

DRICOMFORT® GEO 365 technology, offering permanent wicking, fast drying, and thermal regulation, and developed with embedded minerals in the polymer structure, has received the ECO PASSPORT certification by OEKO-TEX. The infusion of minerals in the polymer structure enhances comfort and performance all year around. These inherently hydrophilic (water absorbing) and conductive (energy absorbing) mineral particles pull moisture and heat from the skin. DRICOMFORT® GEO 365 uses the body’s energy to make heat-carrying sweat evaporate at a faster rate, enhancing the evaporative cooling of fabrics.

“This innovative technology is optimized for filament based fabrics, including recycled and biodegradable,” says Optimer’s VP of Sales & Business Development, Dwayne Ayers. “With so many challenges to create newness while advancing sustainability in the textile industry, our DRICOMFORT® GEO 365 will be a game changer that offers flexibility and versatility to enhance the performance of a wide variety of existing fabric constructions.”

DRICOMFORT® GEO 365 is not a chemical finish or topical coating that washes out. The infused mineral particles become part of the fiber structure, imparting permanent performance without impacting fabric processing or aesthetics.
