The Technology

Consistently keeping ahead with advancements in technology is what enables DexShell's protective gear to be so effective in repelling the outdoor elements, even in the most challenging conditions.

Patented '4-Way Stretch' Technology

By using a unique micro dotting lamination technique this process provides greater freedom to enable the user to be more active. The micro dotting lamination between the outer and inner components and the membrane interlining provides greater stretch allowing the product to be far more flexible and in turn help the users ability to move.

Porelle® Membranes

Porelle® waterproof breathable membranes have been engineered for lamination to create high performance fabrics for different market applications.

These durable membranes are also resistant to a range of chemicals and weak acids. DexShell selects a line of Porelle® membrane with the WVP 15,000 g/m2.day ASTM E96:95

Porelle membranes are manufactured by PIL Membranes Ltd with over 40 years' experience in the marketplace. Porelle® is the registered trademark of KL Technologies Group Limited.

Hydrostatic Head Test

In the Hydrostatic Head Test DexShell rivals its competitors with its impressive waterproof materials. The higher the hydrostatic head value the more water resistant the fabric is. For any fabric to be valued as fully waterproof it should withstand the pressure of a column of water 10,000mm high without leakage. The Porelle membrane that DexShell use exceeds this by far.
