When Argar Technology first approached the idea to produce HV fabrics, the trump card was the idea to manufacture new Knitted Fabrics targeted to substitute the 100% Polyester ones regularly used to achieve the chromatic specification fixed by EN20471 rules.
Double Knitting Technology was innovatively applied by Argar Technology in the production of High Visibility HVis-Tes® Knitted Fabrics. http://www.argartechnology.com/capitoli/eng/high_visibility.html
In this new HVis-Tes® range of items, the external face of fabric is 100%Polyester, while the internal face is 100% pure Cotton.
This peculiar interlacement guarantees at the same time, the extraordinary features of durability and endurance of a Polyester fabric and the Comfort that only a Cotton fabric is able to provide.
They are designed to satisfy the needs of durability in hard wearing and washing conditions which are prohibitive for a garment in pure Cotton, without compromising the comfort of the garment itself, resulting in a top level performance when garments are washed and processed by Commercial Laundries. Upon customer requests they are also available with antibacterial and UV-protection treatment (complying respectively EN20645:2005 + EN20743:2007 and AS/NZS 4399:1996 norms).
HV orange Piquet P723 HV-UV-FF has been recently certified according to Railway Group Standard GO/RT3279.
