Fabric for mountain boots withstands harsh conditions

Advanced Textiles, Products | July 1, 2009 | By:

Problem: Footwear manufacturers need a material for mountaineering boots that can withstand harsh conditions.

Solution: SuperFabric® from HDM Inc. meets strength and durability requirements and provides an integrated look with the rest of the boot. Using a multi-step process, HDM takes ordinary fabrics and transforms them into protective fabrics that can be engineered for optimum resistance to cuts, punctures and abrasions and still maintain the fabric’s flexibility. Optional properties, such as flame resistance, color variety and specialized grip, provide for complete, customized solutions for the manufacturer.
