Moisture management is critical for user comfort, to ensure the garment feels dry, dispersing weight through the fabric.

When moisture sits on a garment is can cause the skin to feel cold and lead to irritation. An effective moisture management testing system will enable garment and textile manufacturers to assess the suitability of their product during the design stage and make the best materials selection, ensuring maximum user comfort and satisfaction.

Recent innovations in testing technology have now led to new, more advanced methods of capturing and evaluating wicking test results. 

This webinar will focus on the subject of wicking as a whole, using James Heal's moisture management tester WickView. We will also be identifying variables that impact wicking results, and cover the latest comprehensive grading system for determining a fabrics 'true wicking' behaviour.
