EASTMAN AVRA™ PERFORMANCE FIBERS - DRY TIME
Say goodbye to the mid-workout cling and focus on your workout. Avra™ keeps you comfortable with superior wicking speed and exceptional dry times. That’s performance you can feel.
HIGH TECH, BUT NOT HIGH HASSLE
Avra™ proprietary bicomponent spinning technology enables a unique combination of fiber size, shape, and performance.
Avra™’s ultra-thin polyester fibers are extruded and held together by a proprietary removable polymer. These bicomponent fibers can be knit or woven into fabrics on conventional equipment.
Once the fabric is made, our removable polymer washes away in hot water, resulting in ribbon-like fibers that are smaller than traditional polyester fibers.
The result is a distinctly silky fabric that keeps you drier and more comfortable than ever before.
UNCONVENTIONAL SHAPE, UNCOMMON PERFORMANCE
Due to their size, Avra™ fibers are significantly more flexible than standard polyester. This creates fabrics that are noticeably softer. The flatter shape also provides performance advantages like faster wicking speeds, faster dry times, and a cool-to-the-touch sensation you have to feel to believe.
