Serates Materia

Serates Materia is a line of elasticized fabrics composed of synthetic fibers that have high technological content specifically contemplated for active outdoor sports: ski, golf, bicycling and equestrian apparel. 

The objective of the Materia fabrics is to increase the performance of the athletes. Serates wants to reach this objective in harmony with the values of the sport through a method based on the following phases:


Research and innovation: our team of technicians is constantly researching fibers and finishings which are able to increase performance, with a pioneer attitude towards the novelties that appear on the market, with which we face with determination and commitment.

 

Experience: Every new course takes form from footsteps already taken.

Since 1977, Serates produces and commercializes technical fabrics destined to athletes that have created sport history and for this reason we know the fibers and the processes that bring technological innovation in the textile circle.  We face the new challenges of the market with the trust that originates from what we have learned and curiosity which pushes us further.

 

Performance Test: Serates Materia has a clear point in common with the athletes for which is destined: results.  All the fabrics of Materia are rigorously tested by our laboratories which certify their real performance.

Features

4 Way Stretch

4 Way Stretch

Woven fabrics elastic in weave and warp. Four directions of elasticity offer the maximum liberty of movement during athletes’ performance. Besides following body movements, they exploit the advantages of compression tied to the best elastic ability of the woven fabric. 

Windproof

Windproof

We use the finest and performance membranes applied to the fabrics built with the most innovative yarns and the most suitable textures to guarantee an effective wind proofing even under the most difficult conditions.

Superlight

Superlight

Built with thin and tenacious yarns, the Serates Function fabrics offer a perception of an amazing second skin, combined with all the necessary functionalities for extreme outdoor conditions.

Impermeable-breathable

Impermeable-breathable

Serates Materia proposes fabrics able to combine the maximum protection - withstanding the direct, continuous and persistent contact with rain and snow - to elevated breathable levels that allow the best possible bodily thermo-regulation during athletic performance.

To get these results we use membranes, resin finish and high performance special foams applied in our innovative finishing department.

Long lasting water repellent

Long lasting water repellent

This characteristic is obtained with plasma special finishing that prepares the fabric before being treated with water repellent.

It deals with workmanship that modifies the surface of the fabric exponentially increasing the absorbent level and accordingly, the ability to absorb in the successive phases, the water repellent function.

The result is that the fabrics preserve longer its impermeability characteristics over use, over washings (over 3 times the duration of common water repellent fabric).

Active Fabrics

Active Fabrics

Serates Materia proposes a line of fabrics produced with emana® yarn.

The fruit of a pioneer attitude in the textile sector, Serates has developed in close collaboration with the institutes of research that are state-of-the-art, a line of active fabrics that can promote the improvement of athletes physical performances.

These fabrics are achieved with special yarns that absorb the heat of the human body so that it can be returned naturally in the form of Far Infrared Rays (Far Infrared Rays = F.I.R.).

The natural heat of the F.I.R. penetrates the skin and interacts with the body, stimulating blood microcirculation and cellular metabolism without any collateral effect to the skin.
