Sympatex partner Baltes uses the new technology Moisture-tech® 360˚, whereas Buratti SNC chooses Sympatex Climate Technology®
Unterföhring / Munich, November 4th 2013. Optimal moisture removal, less perspiration water and excellent heat insulation – Sympatex Technologies presents Moisture-tech® 360˚ for workwear and safety shoes for the first time at the A+A trade fair together with its partner Baltes (A+A, hall 3, booth A18): An innovative insole can be combined with the Moisture-tech® lining laminates to offer a perfect all-round solution for comfortable dry feet during intense physical activity. Outstanding Empa* test values have confirmed the high performance of this technology.
For the models Diva and Surf from the new safety shoe collection “Safety-Trek-Line”, Baltes uses the efficient technology Moisture-tech® 360°. The waterproof, lightweight and very sporty safety shoes offer great comfort and perfectly dry feet.
For the label “Montana”, the new Italian Sympatex partner Buratti SNC uses the advantages of Sympatex Climate Technology® – a guarantee for maximum performance and high wearing comfort. Thus, the innovative shoe technology is used for the first time in combination with safety shoes. Sympatex Climate Technology® provides optimal all-weather shoe climate. This is possible due to a novel laminate – made of the 100% recyclable “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane, a hydrophobic 3-D upper and a hydrophilic lining. This combination provides 100% waterproofness, an optimal cooling effect and dynamic breathability. The Italian manufacturer of industrial shoes will present the first Sympatex models for the year 2014 at the A+A trade fair (A+A, hall 4, booth C6).
