We develop the optimum specifications for each application together with professional customers according to the differences in specifications required by the customer's wearing scene. We propose materials in three categories according to the required functionality.

"BALANCED" with excellent moisture permeability and water resistance
"PROTECT" with improved water resistance
"BREATHE" specializing in moisture permeability

With these three categories, it is possible to handle all areas required for waterproof and breathable materials.

"Highly waterproof" "PROTECT" that is more resistant to water

The "PROTECT" category is a collection that achieves a high level of waterproofness by specializing in water pressure resistance. Suitable for activities in hard environments such as sailing and fishing.



Waterproof x breathable "best balance" standard "BALANCED"

The "BALANCED" category is a collection that balances waterproofness and breathability. Skiing is suitable for a wide variety of items, from outdoor activities such as hiking to fashion.



"Highly breathable" "BREATHE" that is even more resistant to unevenness

The "BREATHE" category is a collection that reduces the feeling of stuffiness and enhances the comfort inside the garment by specializing in breathability. Suitable for active activities such as cycling and trail running.



In this video, we will show you Care Instructions for Dermizax™ Products

Dermizax™ is waterproof and breathable, making it ideal for outdoor and active situations. However, the more active you are, the more it may get dirty, and it’s hard to avoid stains when using it for a long time. But Dermizax™ products are easy to take care of. You can wash your clothes whenever it gets dirty or the water repellency drops. So it’s always best to take care of it after each season! By doing so, you can use it comfortably for a long time, and it is environmentally friendly.




Combination of hydrophilic membrane and of hydrophilic membrane achieves the most water resistant WBP of all.




Hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules are randomly combined in the membrane so that hydrophilic molecules with a strong affinity to water transport moisture to the outside.


Microporous structure in the hydrophobic membrane makes moisture run through the membrane inside to outside.



With new technologies, hydrophobic electrospun nanofibrous membrane achieves the highest level of air permeability and moisture permeability.
