DrySAF

DrySAF: Drying, Super Absorbing Fabric - with super-absorbing nanofiber polymers. Developed in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps

Oceanit’s DrySAF functional fabric incorporates super absorbing polymers into the woven cloth, a 6.5 ounce DrySAF towel can hold up to 2 liters of water, 10 times its weight in water absorption.

Partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps, Oceanit responded to an interesting challenge: standard issue RAT (Rugged All Terrain) boots take far too long to air-dry.  When deployed, marines require wet or soaked boots to be dry & wearable again within a matter of hours. 

Oceanit’s functional fabric technology, which utilizes super-absorbing nanofibers, provides extraordinary performance by drying wet boots without energy or heat from fires.  A wet t-shirt dries in 30 minutes, lightweight pants in 60 minutes, and boots in two hours.

DrySAF towels are able to dry a pair of U.S. Marine Corp RAT (Rugged All Terrain) boots in better than six hours, enabling the interior to feel dry to the touch at conditions of 72 degrees Fahrenheit and 65 percent relative humidity. Air-drying under the same conditions can take several days.
