Portwest’s BizTex Micro fabric is a polypropylene substrate with anti-static properties to which a polyethylene film is applied (PP/PE). The outer layer prevents the passage of liquid molecules inwards yet allows the vapour molecules that build up on the inside of the fabric to permeate. This technology keeps the wearer fresh and comfortable.

BizTex Micro has the added benet of having an anti-static coating that provides protection against electrostatic buildup.

Biztex Plus is also available in an 82g option, offering added strength, abrasion and tear resistance.
