  1. 3. What is Moisture Management ? The ability of a garment to transport moisture away from the skin to the garments outer surface Moisture management often refers to the transport of both moisture vapor & liquid away from the body. Moisture vapor can pass through openings between filters of yarns. In the case of cotton or other hydrophilic fibers the fiber can serve as a buffer by absorbing moisture vapor & adding to the comfort properties of a fabric. Liquid water ( or perspiration) must be wicked into a fabric structure & then evaporate from the outside of the fabric.
  2. 4. Textile as a barrier to comfort Textile commonly worn act as a barrier between the external Environment & the human body. The behavior of moisture in Various fibers is different owing to their physical & chemical Properties making it uncomfortable to the wearer- unless the Moisture is carried away by a natural drying process or aided by the apparel. Polyester is being increasingly used in apparel, especially due to Its strength, durability & fastness etc. Unfortunately owing to its Inherent properties it can not absorb & transport moisture from Body sweat. In some structures such as polyester knits, the Water absorption of sweat released as perspiration, however such modification either by fabric construction fiber & or chemical treatment make the fabric absorbent thereby retaining moisture inside the fabric for long period of time. Such retention will then result into “ post exercise chill” as the retaining moisture starts absorbing the body heat to evaporate from fabric.
  3. 5. C urrent Technologies <ul><li>Presently the concept of </li></ul><ul><li>Moisture management is </li></ul><ul><li>limited to moisture </li></ul><ul><li>absorption. The Absorption </li></ul><ul><li>property of a Textile fabric </li></ul><ul><li>can be evaluated by the </li></ul><ul><li>following 3 methods. </li></ul><ul><li>Wicking :A capillary action </li></ul><ul><li>in warp & weft direction. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Drop Test: The time taken </li></ul><ul><li>by a drop of water to get </li></ul><ul><li>totally absorbed by the fabric </li></ul><ul><li>& stop spreading. </li></ul><ul><li>3) Area : The total surface </li></ul><ul><li>area covered by known </li></ul><ul><li>Amount of water in a specific </li></ul><ul><li>time period. </li></ul><ul><li>Currently various products </li></ul><ul><li>Are Available commercially </li></ul><ul><li>Which include hydrophilic </li></ul><ul><li>cationic, Anionic blends & </li></ul><ul><li>silicone oil Emulsions </li></ul><ul><li>which assures quick absorption. </li></ul>
  4. 6. Limitations While the current Technologies to Improve the Absorption Properties, there Are questions on Durability of the Performance, the Requirement of Process conditions & silicone films, Which tend to Break during use & washing. So what is Comfort all about To be able to create Comfort in apparel & more particularly in Intimate wear or Sportswear, the textile Substrate has to be Programmed to quickly Attract moisture & Release moisture even More quickly leading to Swift drying/ This Releases valuable area Of the apparel for the Next round of absorption
  5. 7. Quest - AQ 3 directional new generation moisture management technology <ul><li>Cool & Dry </li></ul>2. Quick wicking 3. Quick Drying 4. Anti-cling 5. Post Exercise chill 6. Breathable 7. Wash durable

Additional benefits <ul><li>Quest –AQ combines the dual effect of quick </li></ul><ul><li>absorption & quick drying for polyester & polyester </li></ul><ul><li>rich blend. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Quest –AQ increased the speed of moisture diffusion </li></ul><ul><li>in 3 directions enabling the fabric to left perspiration </li></ul><ul><li>immediately from the skin to the outer surface of </li></ul><ul><li>the garment as the moisture does not get trapped </li></ul><ul><li>in the clothing. </li></ul><ul><li>Three dimensional warp wise, weft wise & </li></ul><ul><li>atmospheric transportation of moisture designed for </li></ul><ul><li>polyester & polyester fabrics or garments. </li></ul><ul><li>Dry, soft breathable fabric & garments made from </li></ul><ul><li>Quest –AQ makes the user in total comfort – </li></ul><ul><li>NO MATTER WHAT THE CONDITIONS </li></ul><ul><li>Ensures removal of moisture or sweat at much higher </li></ul><ul><li>speed & keep the body dry with no after sweat chill </li></ul><ul><li>effect. </li></ul><ul><li>Imparts non-cling performance to 100% polyester </li></ul><ul><li>for better wearer comfort. </li></ul>
  7. 9. Application Standard usage is shown below & should vary depending on the target material, the purpose & conditions. Conduct a preliminary test for determining an appropriate amount including the compatibility with other chemical Agents to used: By Pad: Quest AQ - 10 – 50 g/l Pad dry cure 150 – 190°c for 1 min. By Exhaust Quest AQ - 1.5% o.w.f pH - 4 – 5 MLR - 1: 10 – 30 Temperature - 40°c Time - 20 – 40 mins.
