- REVOLUTION IN SAFETY SHOES INDUSTRY
- TWO TIMES MORE RESISTANCE
- MUCH MORE FLEXIBILITY
- 55% MORE LIGHTNESS AND PERCEPTIBLE SOFTNESS
WHITELAYER® – the most unique fabric on the market
WHITELAYER® is a recently invented and patented by European Tech Group – a completely new type of material, never used before in the shoe industry.
In fact, there is no fabric that can compete with it. Double resistance combined with super lightweight, great flexibility, softness and perfect energy absorption are the qualities that set it apart from all other anti-penetration materials. It is mostly used in safety shoes, successfully replacing the standard solution in soles – metal.
IN FACT, IT’S THE STRONGEST FIBER USED IN WORK FOOTWEAR
The new generation of anti-penetration fabric
The secret lies in the details. This unique, extremely strong fabric owes its features to the special composition.
It consists in 96% of compressed Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE, (C2-H4)n) which has extremely long molecular chains. It transports impact much more effectively to the polymer structure. As a result, UHMwPE is 15 times stronger than steel and it is the most impact resistant thermoplastic material.
Moreover, the fabric is extra durable even in the most extreme environments due to a 4% Stainless Steel fiber in the WHITELAYER® composition.
Extreme puncture resistance when you really need it
The main purpose of safety shoes is to protect your feet. Currently, a lot of brands offer substitutes with a metal layer sole which are usually much lighter but not always durable enough. WHITELAYER® is a totally new type of non-metal, anti-penetration fabric. It is a perfect combination of both of these features. In practical terms, this is the strongest fabric in the history of work footwear – two times more resistant to puncture and impact than any other available material on the market. Currently, our technology can be found in the AIRTOX safety footwear.
THE FABRIC WHICH BLUNTS CUTTING MACHINES. IT’S SO HARD.
Our R&D center can guarantee the real reliability of WHITELAYER® because of the excellent results of many tests which the fabric has been subjected to. It stays durable and works excellent in the contact with very sharp objects such as nails. It retains its anti-penetration features even under the pressure of a 100-kg man, providing a total safety for your feet. It’s extremely protective – it is no coincidence that similar fabric is used for ballistic protection.
so light and soft
– You can’t even tell it’s there
Naturally, the most important aspect of using anti-penetration fibers is providing safety. But… have you ever wondered whether work footwear could be less rigid and heavy at the same time? Our mission is to break the traditional way of thinking.
We’ve created a new generation of fabric which gives you much more than our competitors. What is it exactly? A lightweight and unique softness that makes wearing safety shoes comfortable and pleasant not only at work but at all times.
55% LIGHTER THAN ANY OTHER PROTECTIVE FABRIC
WHITELAYER® is 55% lighter than any other non-metal anti-penetration material. The truly revolutionary construction of the lining introduces a completely new view on safety shoes where comfort meets standards and fulfills the needs of even the most demanding customers. Finally, the softness of WHITELAYER® and its placement between other layers in a sole, prevents its from moving and causing foot injuries.
Flexibility you didn’t expect
Another innovative feature of WHITELAYER® in anti-penetration materials is great flexibility. It is obvious that a metal layer doesn’t provide this property but its substitutes should. Does it happen in reality? Well, not always.
A WHITELAYER® ensures much higher flexibility than other non-metal fabrics. It doesn’t block freedom of movements, turning freely in all directions. It definitely increases the value, quality and comfort of wearing safety shoes.
Because work footwear doesn’t have to be burdensome to use any more.
