Waterproof Material Guide

Waterproof material

Waterproof material prevents water to come through, they have characteristics that keep rain and snow out and body dry. Water resistance is measured in the amount of water, measured in mm., Which can be pressed on the material before the water comes through. Waterproof fabrics made by laminating or cover material with a waterproof membrane.

1000MM:
Low performance. Normally used to cheaper products. Can be used for practical purposes.

3000MM:
Good and strong performance. Often used for products where the customer has high requirements to the garment’s performance and quality.

5000MM:
Mycker good performance. Used for brands that have special needs for very good performance, for example, rain gear that will have high water resistance.

10.000MM:
Extremely good performance, mainly used for products to be able to withstand extreme conditions.

breathability

Material breathable allows sweat to get through so that it disappears from the body. Breathability measured in the speed sweat passes through the material. Measured in grams per m2 of sweat fabric for 24 hours (g / m2 / d).

To manufacture a breathable material is often done by using a membrane consisting of a lot of tiny holes. These holes are too small for a drop of water to pass into through but large enough to air molecules, and thus the sweat to pass out.

IN 800 G / M2 / D
Low performance, normally in soft shell jackets, create comfort for the wearer during physical activity.

800-3000 G / M2 / D
Medium performance, often used in ski jackets and some soft shell jackets.
Also used normally to rain gear to ensure that the body can breathe but still be kept dry.

OVER 3,000 G / M2 / D
High performance, normally used for professional ski jackets and other men’s garments where a high breathability is important.

taped seams

To ensure that the product is completely waterproof can cover the seams with a special tape. This tape increases the product’s properties and is used in rainwear and some ski clothes.

Laundry

On products with special properties as water resistance and breathability, it is important to treat them properly to maintain high performance and long life.

Washing instructions should be followed carefully and to use products specially designed for this type of material. It causes the membrane material will last longer and thus maintain the product the special features anymore. If not treated properly membrane becomes damaged and its special qualities disappear.
