Pertex Introduces Pertex Shield Revolve
Pertex has introduced a more sustainable and technical waterproof/breathable material called Pertex Shield Revolve. The fabrics are mono-material laminates where each layer of the fabric is made from a single polymer, in this case, 100 percent recycled polyester. The mono-materialcomposition makes Pertex Shield Revolve fabrics much easier to be recycled at the end of a garment’s life, thereby minimizing the waste of resources and reducing the overall environmental impact of the fabric.
Rab introduced Pertex Shield Revolve in its Downpour Eco Jacket for S/S ’21 and adopted a new 3-layer version for the Rab Arc Eco Jacket Fall 2021.
Rab’s marketing director Jim Evans explains, “Now as a certified Climate Neutral Company, aiming to be carbon Net Zero by 2030, everything in our design process considers our impact on the planet, without sacrificing product performance. It's great that Pertex shares that vision.”
Klättermusen will use a 2.5-layer Pertex Shield Revolve fabric in its new Brede 2.0 Jacket and Brage 2.0 Salopettes.
“We always strive to find developments and solutions that evolve us beyond tomorrow,” said Ida Holemen, global head of marketing, Klättermusen. “Circular thinking is crucial to this. Pertex Revolve series is using post consumer recycled fibers from the face fabric to the membrane, and the protective backing to create this durable 3-layer material. So, not only recycled but also totally recyclable again.”
Martini Sportswear features Pertex Shield Revolve in four new styles this Fall, including the Turbulence Jacket and Changeover Jacket.
“Every single one of our products enables athletes to achieve personal best performances,” said Ludwig Moz, marketing/PR, for Martini Sportswear. “Pertex Shield Revolve is the right material to equip our customers with products for their sport in the fresh air with a good conscience.”
