MOISTURE GUARD | Wicking and Moisture Management

Product Information

Moisture-Guard is a concentrated organo hydrophilic finishing agent for cellulosic, polyamide and their blends. It imparts rapid moisture absorption, evaporation and improved wicking thereby producing a cooling effect to wearer. Moisture-Guard enables the fabric to absorb moisture from the body and allow it to evaporate quickly. Moisture-Guard is durable to home laundering.
