Polartec has entered into an exclusive global agreement with Finetex EnE to bring to market a revolutionary collection of highly water resistant and highly breathable softshell fabrics under the Polartec® Power Shield® Pro brand name.

January 15, 2010 (Lawrence, Mass. & Seoul, Korea) – Polartec, LLC, the world's premier manufacturer of performance fabrics, has entered into an exclusive global distribution agreement with Finetex EnE, Inc., a leading manufacturer of filtration materials, to bring to market a revolutionary collection of highly water resistant and highly breathable soft shell fabrics under the Polartec® Power Shield® Pro brand name.

“This is a partnership that will forever change the landscape of technical outerwear,” states Polartec executive vice president of sales and marketing, Jon Adelman. “Finetex's expertise in filtration membranes and Polartec's development partnerships with the best clothing brands in the world has enabled us to create the ultimate soft shell fabrics that offer a rare combination of high water resistance (5000mm) and measurable air permeability (2CFM or 8 l/m2/second).”

Finetex has developed a unique microporous membrane technology, which combined with Polartec's lamination expertise, results in a fabric package that is highly wind and water resistant, yet allows a two-way air exchange for rapid moisture vapor transfer.

“We're thrilled to extend our partnership with Polartec, LLC which is recognized and trusted by consumers worldwide as a brand of quality and performance,” notes JC Park, president and CEO of Finetex. “Our technology will have a huge impact on the comfort and performance consumers can expect in the field.”

Polartec Power Shield Pro with Finetex technology is a game changer with unlimited potential. Our collaboration enables Polartec not only to expand their product line, the fabric is the most innovative introduction into this category the market has ever seen.”
