Special processing skills

1. Super water repellent: We were in charge of the 2004 Athens Olympics Japanese swimming team's swimwear water repellency treatment. Developed using this high level of processing technology was the 'Super water repellent'. This swimwear never gets heavy because it repels the water like waterfowl's feather. This super water repellent process is not coating the textile so the textile still keeps the softness and breath ability.

2. Absorb water and quick-drying processing: Not only swimwear but also the uniforms of gymnastic team of Japan in Athens Olympics were processed in our company as well. This textile is good at absorbing waters and sweats. Moreover, it is processed as quick-drying so the gymnast can concentrate on the event comfortably. It is three times quicker to dry and absorbs water than normal cottons. It processes in hot water so it also has durability.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.
