BenQ materials is excited to announce the launch of Xpore, a ground-breaking new technology for waterproof and breathable textiles. Xpore is the first to bring genuine innovation in waterproof and breathable technology for consistent years, providing not only comfort with an unprecedented “beyond dry” experience but also environmentally-friendly safety. Xpore, a refinement of BenQ Material’s AirySektor concept has almost limitless applications in performance clothing, home care, and medical care. Xpore technology is ideal for natural fiber fabrics, such as silk, wool, and cotton, and even for special fabrics requested by designers, such as leather.
Xpore technology is safe and free of harmful PTFE/PFCs (Polytetrafluoroethylene and Perfluorocarbons). Xpore technology also provides fully chemical solvent-free processes from membrane manufacturing to lamination. Xpore not only sets a new standard for eco-friendliness from the production process to final product but also offers true breathability together with waterproofing.
BenQ Materials' nanoporous membranes have been recognized as exceptional by the industry-leading ISPO Textrends jury panel of journalists, designers, and independent professionals. When selecting outstanding membrane and coating products, the ISPO jury placed two of BenQ Materials’ products in the top 10, and three of them in the selection category.
In independent tests, Xpore has demonstrated remarkable and significant advantages over the existing dominant technologies in this market. BenQ Materials' membrane innovations now control moisture with 10 billion nano-pores per square inch each 20,000x smaller than a water droplet and 200x larger than a water vapor molecule to keep wearers dry and comfortable in all conditions.
Certification and approval
Xpore technology materials including nanoporous membrane and glue have already received critical SGS and ITS certifications. BenQ Materials’ factory facilities already have ISO approval. Bluesign, OEKO-TEX, and TAF of laboratory approvals are in process.
