Whitek™ comes from the processing of Tyvek® to obtain a fabric suitable for fashion and design applications.
Tyvek® from DuPont is a material made of pure polyethylene fibres, randomly arranged and welded to form a support with interesting technical characteristics
WHITEK™ research has led to obtain a fabric that combines the technical characteristics of Tyvek® with a visual and tactile apparence suitable for fashion and design products. The processing is made in Italy and is managed internally by the structure based in Milan.
WHITEK™s applications are countless:
Accessories -Bags - Belts- Hats
Interior design objects
All applications where the combination of technicality and aesthetics is required.
The properties of Tyvek® are countless: breathable, light, waterproof, windproof, tear-resistant, chemical-resistant, recyclable and it is also counted in the category of technofibres.
WHITEK™ has identified a process
which, through special pigments and specially modified machinery,
makes it possible to produce all ranges of colours, plain and patterned prints.
The colours produced are dusty, attractive and light, almost with a cloudy effect, which gives the product a unique characteristic.
The use of coloured PU membranes modifies the fabric both visually and technically. With this procedure it is possible to obtain full, strong and fluorescent colours,
the waterproof characteristics are improved and the fabric takes on a rubbery appearance in the hand. The Sanitized® antibacterial treatmentcompletes the performance.
Surface treatment by applying silver and coloured foils that do not guarantee the same technical characteristics as the membranes but give Whitek™ a particularly fashionable appearance.
The hand remains soft and does not creak during use.
