designed for use protection from the environmental factors like wind. .  Completely prevents the penetration and absorption of liquid water.  Passively allow water vapour to diffuse through them yet prevents the penetration of liquid water.  Term “breathable” implies that the fabric is actively ventilated. rain and loss of body heat.Waterproof Breathable fabrics  Waterproof breathable fabrics .

 resin-coated materials and  film-laminated materials.Types of Waterproof fabrics Water-resistant and moisture-permeable materials may be divided into three main categories –  high-density fabrics. .

Desirable attributes for SPORTSWEAR  Optimum heat and moisture regulation  Good air and water vapour permeability  Rapid moisture absorption and conveyance capacity  Absence of dampness  Dimensionally stable even when wet  Durable  Easy care  Lightweight  Soft and pleasant touch .

2 Layer Fabric  The two layer structure – two fabric layers e.  The use of superfine or microfibre yarn enables production of dense fabrics leads to capillary action that gives the best wicking properties. micro-denier polyester and the outer layer  Cotton or rayon layer absorbs and the outer layer helps in evaporation. .g.

Maintains body temperature – Sprint events .

– Dry fit technology .

• Parachute canopy fabrics . .high tensile NYLON multifilament in the denier range of 32 to 200 deniers.

Conclusion Science in sportswear industry –  Development in the athlete’s perfomance  Created a potential market for sportswear across the world  Increased the morale & the level at which the sport is pursued. .
