Polarmax Introduces World's First Wicking Cotton Apparel

Polarmax® and Cotton Incorporated® introduce world’s first wicking cotton apparel

West End, NC – Longworth Industries, parent company of Polarmax, XGO and PMX technical base layers, is proud to announce a partnership with Cotton, Incorporated®, to introduce the world’s first line of technical T’s and undergarments with patented TransDRY™ moisture management technology.

Using the first truly technical, wicking cotton fabric that actively moves moisture to the outside of the fabric where it can evaporate faster, drying twice as fast as regular cotton, Polarmax’s PMX cotton apparel with TransDRY provides all the comfort you’ve come to expect from cotton, but with highly efficient performance features. Transcending outdoor and athletic categories, the new PMX cotton apparel will appeal to anyone and everyone who loves cotton, but especially those who are active.

“We are really excited to be partnering with Cotton Incorporated to bring this fantastic technology to market,” said Randy Black, President of Longworth Industries. “Technical cotton is applicable to so many parts of our business from Outdoor to Military, and we feel really strongly about partnering with other US-based companies to create jobs and quality products right here at home, while reducing our travel, shipping and quality control footprint, ” Black continued.

Features of PMX cotton with TransDRY moisture management technology:

• Patented moisture management technology for cotton

• Reduces cotton’s absorbent capacity and overall drying time

• Limitless potential to engineer desired moisture management performance

• Transfers moisture away from the body or over a wider surface area of fabric

• Reduces fabric cling to skin during exercise

The PMX cotton apparel with TransDRY™ collection features M’s and W’s s/s and l/s T’s that can keep the wearer dry, even during varying levels of exercise intensity.
