Hardface® Q&A
A
Hardface® is a proprietary surface-fused polymer applied to some Polartec materials to increase their abrasion and snag resistance, making them insanely durable for knitted materials.
A
DWR stands for Durable Water Repellency. This fabric coating is the first line of defense against rain. It creates a repellent surface so that water will tend to bead up and run off a garment.
