Find out everything you need to know about INDUO® fabrics.
If you get a spot on your garment, pour water on it to remove it but do not rub it. The fabric’s resistance to spots works for all
types of liquids (wine, coffee, sauces).
Is it as effective for dark spots ?
As long as the spot is liquid it can be rinsed with water, no matter what colour it is.
What happens when the spot isn’t liquid?
If the spot is not liquid, there is no guarantee that the fabric’s patented qualities will work. However, spots caused by semi-liquids such as ketchup, honey or chocolate can generally be removed by pouring a lot of water on them.
What is “breathability” and how does it work?
Does the fabric prevent 100% on the formation of sweat rings?
The fabric is breathable ; it strongly diminishes rings, outside of specific medical situations or extreme conditions. If a ring does form
it can rapidly disappear without leaving an odour when you go to a cool, dry place.
Does the fabric prevent the wearer from perspiring?
No, the fabric does not react on your body. However, it helps limit the formation of sweat rings and odours.
Can I wear a garment in INDUO® fabric to go to work on a bicycle?
INDUO® fabric was conceived for everyday garments. It cannot replace a sport T-shirt but, it can still do the job for a quick
bicycle ride for instance.
What about odours?
Perspiration odours do not come from perspiration but from bacteria. Odours develop when perspiration stagnates. INDUO® prevents the perspiration from being absorbed and stored in the fabric’s fibres. Thus you will avoid unpleasant odours.
Does the fabric keep you warm?
INDUO® fabric will not keep you warmer that a traditional cotton fabric.
Does the fabric have a specific look or hand?
Clients who’ve tested an INDUO® fabric are surprised by its softness and comfort. Our comparative tests show that its hand is similar
to those of the best fabrics on the market.
Is the fabric transparent?
INDUO® fabric has a good opacity. There is no need to wear an undershirt underneath it.
Is it necessary to wear an undershirt underneath an INDUO® fabric shirt ?
It is not necessary. If you do sweat, it is even better not to wear one. Indeed, the undershirt will retain perspiration and thus limit
INDUO® fabric's ability to evacuate sweat.
Does the fabric present a health or environmental risk?
All products used in making the fabric and all manufacturing procedures are REACh (the European Union standard) certified. The objectives of these standards are to protect consumers from health and environmental risks.
Does the fabric have any allergic or dermatological risks?
All the molecules we use are known, authorized and have been used for a long time in the military and medical fields. To our knowledge, our fabric has never caused an allergic or dermatological reaction.
Can I put my INDUO® fabric garment in the washing machine?
Yes, in a standard washing program at 40°C maximum.
Should I wash my INDUO® fabric garment before wearing it the first time?
We suggest you wash your garment once before you wear it so it will be softer.
Can I have my INDUO® fabric garment dry-cleaned?
Yes, you can have your INDUO® fabric garment dry-cleaned since it won’t damage the fabric.
Does INDUO® fabric lose its properties after a certain number of machine washings?
The fabric’s properties react like a fabric dye: they lose some intensity over time but their qualities remain as long as you follow the care instructions.
What cleaning products can I use on the garment?
We recommend not using bleach, stain-removers or whitening products (detergent, powders, wipes). Since INDUO® is resistant to stains, they shouldn’t be needed.
How can I dry my INDUO® fabric garment?
INDUO® fabric dries quickly. We suggest that you put your garment on a hanger when you take it out of the machine. This will make it easier to iron.
Can I put my INDUO® fabric garment in the dryer?
No. Dryers damage textiles and can reduce the INDUO® fabric’s performance.
Can I iron my INDUO® fabric garment?
We suggest you iron your garment:
- At the maximum temperature if it is made in 100% cotton
- At a moderate temperature (maximum 150° indicated by 2 points on the iron dial) if it is 98% cotton and 2% elastane (stretch cotton).
How can I iron my INDUO® fabric garment?
To make ironing easier, we suggest that you generously spray water on the fabric before ironing it.
