About NOMA Hydrophobic Stain-Resistant Shirt Technology
NOMA Shirts blend innovation with tradition. Harnessing over 70 years’ experience in quality tailoring, NOMA’s latest innovative Hydrophobic Nano-Tech coated and NON-IRON fabrics are the ultimate in worry-free stain-resistant smartness as well as easy-care comfort, and incredible long-lasting durability.
PREMIUM NON-IRON FABRICS
The premium weight 120g PC poplin-weave fabric is a sturdy and good quality poly-cotton blend (65/35%) for both comfort and durability. The non-iron treatment saturates the entire shirt, bonding the cotton fibres to each other at a molecular level, making the fabric much more difficult to crease providing a smooth wrinkle-free appearance. Simply wash it using a good quality detergent (note: excessive detergent may erode the fabric coatings quicker) as per the instructions below, then gently stretch the fabric and hang it on a hanger to dry. Ironing is not required but may help for a pristine finish.
ABOUT NOMA’S HYDROPHOBIC NANO-TECHNOLOGY COATING
NOMA’s hydrophobic coating materials form nanoscale layers on fabrics. This minutely thin layer doesn’t affect the look, feel, or flexibility of the fabric, yet immediately bestows it with astonishingly powerful anti-stain and water-resistant properties – creating and invisible barrier against all water-based and many oil-based liquids which would otherwise stain your garment, and ruin your day.
LESS SWEAT, UNDERARM STAINS AND EVEN BODY ODOUR
The special nano-coated fabric not only resists absorption of spilt water, but also sweat – which is not only ideal for reducing the occurrence of unsightly underarm sweat patches, but will also mean that the garment will not smell bad at the end of the day as with normal shirts that absorb sweat which allows smelly bacteria to grow throughout the day within the fabric’s fibres.
WATER-, OIL- AND STAIN-RESISTANCE
NOMA’s amazing stain-resistant shirts are also virtually impervious to soil, spills and stains (oil or water based) without impacting the fabric’s weight, look, feel, colour or breathability, so will feel as comfortable, if not more so, than regular shirts.
Dust or dry soil is simply brushed off. Spills & splashes just bead off, or are easily wiped away with a clean cloth. Teflon™ is used as a PTFE coating on the fabric for hydrophobic effects.
WHO WILL BENEFIT
Anyone will benefit from NOMA Hydrophobic shirts as potentially embarrassing spillages are never a good thing. However NOMA shirts will be even more useful in environments where the risk of spillages is great - such as working in hotels, restaurants or cafes - or for those for whom even a small risk of a stain can be problematic - such as for salesmen, those working in the service industry, or for those in customer facing roles – where making a good impression counts.
COMPANY LOGO & BUSINESSES INCENTIVES
The amazing stain-resisting properties of NOMA shirts make them a prime choice for business or corporate use.
We offer business special discounts if purchased in quantity as part of a work uniform, particularly in food, drink and service industries, as well as for salesforces and office workers etc. Businesses can also benefit from the lower cost of replacing stained shirts. The shirts are suitable for embroidery, DTG, screen printing, vinyl transfer and flocking.
Using a quality detergent and softener, machine wash the shirts at 40ºC (heavy soil: 50ºC), tumble dry, remove promptly, then gently stretch the fabric & hang to dry. The various nano-coating treatments will usually last for up to 15 washes, deteriorating linearly, after which the shirt will become a normal shirt. Using more or less detergent when washing will reduce or increase the number of washes respectively before the coatings disappear. Ironing is not required but may help for a pristine finish.
SKIN CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Although these coatings have been well tested for years and skin irritation is relatively unheard of, or at least extremely rare, we still recommend wearers to monitor their skin for any allergic or other skin reactions to Teflon™ or any of the other fabric treatments used in any NOMA product.
KINDER TO YOUR POCKET. AS WELL AS THE ENVIRONMENT.
NOMA’s innovative fabric technologies keep your shirt cleaner, dryer, smoother and newer looking for far longer than other shirts, meaning you will likely buy shirts less often, saving you money as well as the planet's resources.
