[ Technical Textiles - From Portugal ]

No-sew behind VitalJacket and LZR
The success of the latest Speedo LZR Racer swimsuit is in part down to the No-sew Technology developed by Petratex Confecções of Portugal. Peratex claims to be the first company to develop and patent equipment and specific working methods for producing 100% thermo-fused garments and has subsequently supplied hundreds of thousands of the seamless garments to leading sports brands such as Adidas and Nike, as well as high fashion names like Armani and Prada. The company has also been involved in the manufacture of the new VitalJacket HWM (Heart Wave Monitor) which is being marketed by Biodevices, a spin-off from IEETA [Institute of Electronics and Telematics Engineering] at the University of Aveiro in PORTO, Portugal.
