Tested by Team AkzoNobel and Dongfeng Race Team, the new Isotak® X range represents the pinnacle of ocean racing gear and features Zhik’s latest patent pending innovations. The Isotak® X range features our multilayer composite membrane fabric proved to be 4X more waterproof durable than the marking leading ePTFE ocean fabric. All garments have been engineered to have reduced seams reducing weight, maximising flexibility and increasing durability. Biomotion reflective detailing highlights key points of the human anatomy, enabling greater visual recognition of crew members & allowing them to judge movement and direction in low light conditions. This grants valuable split seconds of response time in cases of emergency.

INDEPENDENT STUDY SHOWS ZHIK® ISOTAK® FABRICS ARE 4x MORE WATERPOOF DURABLE THAN THE INDUSTRY LEADING ePTFE OCEAN FABRIC

zhik_4x-graph

RMIT have pioneered the development of a waterproof durability testing method specifically designed to simulate accelerated wear and tear in wet conditions (when the waterproof membrane is most vulnerable). The results of their study is now published in the Textile Research Journal.

This method involves placing waterproof textiles in an accelerated wear device that simulates impact and abrasion in wet conditions. Each textile is pressure tested to determine the waterproofness after defined intervals of accelerated wear.

The chart below represents the hydrostatic resistance (Waterproofness) of each fabric after 30, 60, 90 and 120 minute accelerated wearing.

After four times (4 x) more accelerated wear testing, Zhik® Isotak® fabrics are substantially more waterproof than Musto® HPX PRO SERIES fabrics. (120 minutes as compared to 30 minutes of accelerated wear testing)
