  Heatsheets® - This super light, super warm, heat-reflective blanket, manufactured by Advanced Flexible Materials Inc., is made from metalized low density polyethylene (LDPE), and is 1 millimeter thick (or 0.001 inch). The reflective layer in Heatsheets® blankets reflect up to 97% of body’s radiant heat right back to the user, creating an envelope of warm air. Heatsheets are recyclable, and can be printed. Heatsheets® are made and printed in California, where state law (AB 455) prohibits the use of heavy metals in inks or materials. Most of the inks used are water based (as opposed to solvents), minimizing air pollution.
  HeiQ Bug Guard - Developed by HeiQ, the company's reliable HeiQ Bug Guard keeps mosquitoes and other vectors away from textiles. It is an ideal companion for outdoor gear and turns everyday clothing into an insect protection shield. This technology can also be used on home textiles, such as mattresses and bedding to guard against bed bugs.
  HeiQ Clean Tech - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ Clean Tech innovative finishing technology is eco-friendly and efficient, with time, water and energy savings of 30-40%. It enables a faster polyester dyeing process with disperse dyes, as well as optimizing the textile product quality. The technology is suitable for most standard polyester dyeing machines and can be applied to wovens, knits, and yarns.
  HeiQ Eco Dry - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ Eco Dry is an innovative, eco-friendly and non-PFC based repellent textile technology that provides protection against water and water-based stains. Bio- inspired HeiQ Eco Dry keeps garments ecologically dry and equips textiles to handle wet weather conditions. HeiQ Eco Dry is ideally suited for outdoor jackets, windbreakers, hiking pants, fleece and footwear.
  HeiQ Fresh - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ Fresh is a comprehensive family of sustainable and highly effective odor control technologies that can be tailored for each fabric type and intended performance. HeiQ Fresh odor control technology can be used on activewear, casual wear, business wear, and home fabrics.
  HeiQ Glide - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ Glide technology is a durable low-friction textile technology provides the wearer with improved comfort and ease of movement. HeiQ Glide technology significantly reduces the level of friction between garments and skin. This innovation is ideally suited for sportswear and activewear, as well as for any skin contact garments including underwear, especially shapewear and hosiery.
  HeiQ No Fuzz - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ No Fuzz is designed for fabrics prone to visible pilling, such as spun yarns and synthetic and natural yarn blend knit fabrics. HeiQ No Fuzz uses adhesive polymer structures to provide targeted reinforcement of fabric yarns. The adhesive action of the polymer structures builds bridges between yarns and constituent fibers. This localized reinforcing effect inhibits pill formation and growth and the abrasive removal of staple fibers.
  HeiQ Real Silk - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ Real Silk is a silk treatment for short silk fibers, which produces the luxurious touch effects of silk: soft, dry, cool, and comfortable. The technology uses real silk fibers secured to the surface of each textile fiber. The treatment is ideal for any fashion apparel and brings a touch of luxury to otherwise "common" fabrics (e.g. polyester or cotton) with a touch of luxury and the luxurious feel of silk.
  HeiQ Smart Temp - Developed by HeiQ, the company's HeiQ Smart Temp is a revolutionary textile technology that provides fabrics with the ability to interact with body temperature and dynamically respond to body heat. The cooling function is activated when the body becomes hot and sweaty, and is deactivated once cooling is complete, which ensures optimal comfort and performance. HeiQ Smart Temp is specifically designed for next-to-skin textiles, bringing a new level of thermal comfort to clothing and hosiery. It also brings comfort to home textiles, such as bed linen and mattress ticking.
  HeiQ Sun Block - Developed by HeiQ, the company's innovative HeiQ Sun Block turns a wearers clothing into a protective sun blocker, specifically useful for childrenswear, hats, lightweight summer attire, outdoor clothing, sportswear, and shading textiles. HeiQ Sun Block gives fabrics the ability to stop harmful UVA and UVB rays by absorbing and reflecting these damaging rays before they reach the skin.
  HeiQ XReflex - Developed by HeiQ in partnership with xefco®, the company's HeiQ XReflex is a radiant barrier technology that allows maintenance of the same level of warmth with half the insulation material. An ultra-thin surface coating reflects radiant body heat for increased thermal retention to create a premium, lightweight, breathable fabric. Performance fabrics enhanced with HeiQ XReflex maintain warmth with up to 50% less insulation for reduced bulk, making it the perfect solution for outdoor and sports jackets, pants and skirts, lifestyle jackets and coats, as well as sleeping bags.
  Hydroflex® - Hydroflex® is a polyurethane-based coating from Consoltex that creates a durable, waterproof, breathable, wind-resistant finish for nylon or polyester. Important end-uses include jackets and outerwear.
  Hygro™ - Moisture-responsive fabrics produced through the use of the Hygro™ process. In this research, the reversible dimensional changes of hygroscopic yarns are utilized to develop responsive fabric structures which widen or narrow their openings depending on moisture content. The process is also used to make terry toweling fabric. In this process, the pile yarn is woven with cotton weft and warp yarns to produce terry fabrics. The fabric is then washed in warm water to dissolve the PVA fibers. By dissolving the PVA fibers, a hollow air space is produced throughout the pile yarn, corresponding to an increase in the air space in the pile yarn. By increasing the air space in the pile yarn, the resulting towels are softer and bulkier than standard cotton towels.
  HYGY™ - This group of patented single layer fabrics, produced by King Tech Industries, have multiple functions including super- strength, light weight, breathable, water-repellant, water- resistant, temperature tolerant, color fastness, anti-abrasion, anti-germ, anti-mosquitoes, non-toxic, and recyclable. With extensive R&D capabilities, King Tech is able to engineer and manufacture the best quality fabrics, serving the needs of customers in the sports, leisure, uniform and industrial fields.
  Hytrel® films/fabric laminates - Hytrel® is a DuPont registered trademark for its engineering thermoplastic elastomer. The polyether-ester block coplymers combine many of the most desirable characteristics of high performance elastomers and flexible plastics, and offer a unique combination of strength, elasticity, and flexibility, without the use of plasticizers. Very thin monolithic films of 0.001 inch or less can be extruded from Hytrel. Hytrel films are bonded to textiles for both disposal and reusable applications. End uses: applications include end uses requiring waterproof, breathable, and waterproof characteristics; outdoor apparel, operating room gowns, personal protective apparel, backpacks and bedding covers for allergy control.
