HeiQ Debuts Glider Low-Friction Textile Treatment

Switzerland-based HeiQ Materials AG — a manufacturer of silver composite additives and high-performance, sustainable textile finishes — has debuted Glider, a low-friction textile treatment for sportswear, activewear, underwear, workwear, medical and other next-to-skin textile applications.

According to the company, the treatment complements the fabric's composition and construction to help minimize a garment's friction properties — which can cause blisters on the skin — and offer enhanced tactile features while allowing it to maintain its hand; colorfastness; and moisture-management, anti-pilling and anti-snagging properties. The treatment is Oeko-Tex®-certified and is pending bluesign® standard certification.

Glider may be pad-applied to polyester, polyamide and cotton fabrics as well as blends, and can function in combination with any of HeiQ's other textile finishes. The technology will be made available to HeiQ mill partners as of October 2013.
