Five textile industry leaders, namely Osmotex, force behind the product; Schoeller Textil AG, production partner; KJUS, primary product development partner; Belginova, technology partner; and Empa, final product development partner, have joined hands to launch HYDRO_BOT, a new revolutionizing technology for moisture management. It will transport moisture to match human sweat rates in various climates, conditions and activity levels.
“HYDRO_BOT is the result of ten years of intense research and development in Switzerland. Over the past two years, the development has reached a new level with four strategic partners involved in the development effort. We are confident that HYDRO_BOT will represent a generational advancement in moisture management,” says Trond Heldal, Director of R&D and Operations, Osmotex.
Premium sportswear brand KJUS will be the first leading brand to take HYDRO_BOT to market in selected skiwear products planned for the 2018-2019 season. Besides, high-tech wearable technology company Belginova is providing operating systems and switches for applying the moisture management solution. It will also deliver HYDRO_BOT products through their own brand 30SEVEN.
