Behind the production process of AIRism – UNIQLO’s globally famous exclusive fabric technology
In particular, the AIRism product line is one of the outstanding technologies, helping to bring outstanding features in breathability, good sweat absorption, softness; so that when wearing AIRism under another layer of clothing, the wearer feels cool and comfortable throughout the summer.
Why is AIRism so popular around the world?
10 years ago, AIRism technology was officially introduced globally by UNIQLO in 2012 based on cooperation with the world’s leading yarn manufacturers such as Toray and Asahi Kasei. This special technology was initially developed mainly on the wearable product line, which is the most comfortable and soft garment because it is in direct contact with the wearer’s skin.
Through a 10-year journey with continuous improvements, AIRism is today applied in a wide range of products for men, women, and children to provide optimal comfort for the wearer.
The point that makes a unique difference in every garment that applies UNIQLO’s AIRism technology lies in the material. Ultra-thin fabric that is only 1/12th of a human hair, breathable and moisture-wicking, releasing accumulated moisture inside clothes, providing optimal comfort to your skin.
One of the important reasons why AIRism becomes an indispensable suggestion from UNIQLO to help you enjoy more pleasant summer days is the advantage of quickly evaporating moisture from the body. The application of “capillary effect” technology of ultra-thin fabrics helps the product to dry extremely quickly, keeping the wearer in a comfortable state.
In an experiment that compared AIRism with regular cotton, the researchers used a thermal camera to measure the surface temperature of each garment after exercise. Although the initial temperature distribution is almost equal, five minutes later the cotton shirt can’t get rid of the sweat, can’t make the fabric cool. In contrast, AIRism technology helps prevent sweat build-up, which allows the temperature to drop slowly, creating a consistently dry feeling.
In another experiment, the UNIQLO team adjusted the temperature of the laboratory to 26 degrees Celsius, 75% humidity. After dipping the cotton shirt (left) and AIRism shirt (right) in water for 5 minutes, the shirt was hung up and observed with a thermal camera. Viewed from left to right, the photos show the actual two shirts after 5, 15 and 30 minutes. AIRism’s quick drying properties are evident.
Not only that, UNIQLO’s AIRism technology also helps eliminate unpleasant odors caused by sweat. The fibers absorb and neutralize common body odors such as ammonia, acetic acid, nonenal and isovaleric acid… The deodorizing effect remains even after many washes. The uncomfortable sticky feeling in the hot summer days of the wearer will therefore no longer be there, helping you to feel a complete difference compared to ordinary cotton products on the market.
