PLY TECHNOLOGIES

Coating Technology:
Liquid breathable waterproof material is applied to the fabric, it dries and becomes a coating. Coating is the original production method of waterproof breathable fabric.

Membrane Laminate Technology:
A thin sheet of waterproof breathable membrane material is laminated to the fabric. Laminate as a production method is used when you require thinner, softer and in general higher performance fabric.
All Helly Tech® are tested by accredited third party textile laboratories ensuring accurate and objective test data.

Lab tests

Water column

  • ISO 811 and JIS LIS L1092-B1
  • Gives the value of pressure mm of water held back by the fabric – 10000 mm is the same pressure you would experience diving to 10m or equal to the pressure from a fire hose.

Breathability:

  • JIS L 1099-1985-B1
  • Gives the value of g/m2/24h – the amount of water molecules that can pass through 1 square meter of fabric within 24 hours.
  • 15.000 grams breathability equals that a jacket is able to pass 30 liters water in 24 hours. In comparison, our human body perspires 1 liter per 24 hours.

Water repellence:

  • ISO 4920:1981 and AATCC 35-2006
  • Spray test: testing of the durable water repellence before and after washing, by drizzling the fabric and measure how many drops that bounce up and if any attaches or wets out the fabric surface.
  • High score in water repellence means the water drops will shed like water on a duck.
