Arbortec’s garment fabric has a solid structure that physically stops water from passing through the membrane. the fabric breaths by absorbing and dissipating sweat through the diffusion of water vapour molecules. when the membrane becomes clogged the garment will stop performing to the best of its ability to ensure it retains its extremely and breathable properties. If the fabric membrane becomes clogged with grease, dust, and dirt it is very likely to allow moisture in and leak.
Arbortec recommends washing your smock with NikWax TechWash following the guidelines on the NikWax packaging, to clean off the grease and grime, followed by a re-wash with NikWax TX. Direct to help restore water-repelling and receive Breathability.
