ENGINEERED FOR PERFORMANCE INHERENT ECO-FRIENDLY BLEND
drirelease fabrics offer an engineered drirelease Custom Blend technology is not a surface

(water absorbing) fibers. The built-in
combination efficiently and naturally pulls HYDROPHILIC FIBERS
moisture and perspiration away from the
skin and pushes it to the exterior of the
fabric where it can evaporate quickly.
drirelease Custom Blends are engineered to
mimic mother nature, providing a soft natural
fiber feel without compromising performance
drirelease custom blend benefits
Our innovative solutions keep customers cool, dry, fresh and comfortable — whatever the application — in high-
performance athletic wear, sportswear, intimates or sleepwear. Because the comfort of drirelease Custom Blend fabrics is
not from chemical finishes, the benefits are absolutely permanent. It will not wash out over time. The brilliance of DR fabrics
is the engineered combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers that allow them to engage with moisture naturally to
dramatically improve how wetness is pulled from the skin and released into the air.
drirelease custom blends
drirelease Custom Blend technology is available in a wide range of classic and fashion-forward blends. Comfortable classic
cotton, Merino wool that never feels damp against the skin, silk that’s machine washable for summer cool and winter
warmth, easy-care natural linen, soft and smooth Lyocell, E.C.O. (Environmentally Correct Origins) with BCI, organic cotton
and/or recycled polyester, and customizable blends that meet your specific needs developed in the DR Comfort Lab.

drirelease Geo Cool technology
drirelease® GEO Cool uses proprietary hydrophilic active particles derived
from metal oxides that have THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY 3000% greater than
that of polyester polymer. The active particles are added during dyeing of
filament polyester fabrics or yarns and are locked into the fiber structure to
provide permanent performance for the life of the fabric and garment.
Moisture management (wicking) is inherent to drirelease GEO Cool as the
active hydrophilic particles effectively transport moisture through the fabric
and provides the energy to drive the moisture out by absorbing the heat
from the body. drirelease GEO Cool is a unique and adaptable technology
that provides thermoregulation by effectively managing heat and moisture
transfer in the fabric, thus providing superior comfort to the wearer.
All drirelease fabrics undergo certification testing to ensure performance
standards are met. The cooling benefit of drirelease GEO fabrics is verified
using the Kawabata Evaluation System instrumentation resulting in at least
5% improvement in instant cooling (QMax) versus the control.

WHAT IS drirelease® DriFil? FILAMENT
An innovative new technology from drirelease which
optimizes both the comfort and durability of performance MULTI-DENIER AND

yarn consisting of a blend of multi-denier + multi-staple HYDROPHOBIC FIBERS
length polyester, a touch of hydrophilic fibers, and a
protective wrap of continuous filaments. HYDROPHILIC FIBERS
Fabrics utilizing our engineered blends provide
