Altexa srl is the market leader in cutting-edge technologies for the production of waterproof and breathable shoes, gloves, and packs. Altexa’s patented HDry technology provides the direct, three-dimensional application of a membrane inside the shoe upper or the outer layer of the glove, thus eliminating any space that could cause infiltration and stagnation of water.
The HDry waterproof-breathable membrane is directly applied to the inner side of the outermost layer by a patented 3D lamination process that is seamless and tapeless. The direct lamination of the membrane eliminates drawbacks associated with other “free-hanging” glove and shoe inserts on the market and offers a higher performance solution that cannot be matched by traditional waterproof systems.
HDry is committed to its role in protecting the environment. Its innovative manufacturing processes and materials used throughout the lamination process are well above industry standards and aim to reduce the environmental footprint of the outdoor and apparel manufacturing industries. The HDry compound is made by a polyurethane ester-based waterproof-breathable membrane combined with a thin polyester knit. Material saving and lightness are the greatest advantages. HDry is PTFE-FREE, PFCs FREE and does not contain any substance restricted by REACH regulations under the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). HDry is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified.
