Special Care Instructions

Care For Water Repellency Function / Reactivation

AVLARE® water repellent properties are designed to last longer than previous technologies. Avlare Fabric will stay substantially dry during most surface water sport activities. After repeated use the water repellent performance may gradually reduce. In some situations where excessive rubbing or wear is placed on the garment some reduction in performance may also be experienced. In these cases, the water repellency can be reactivated by applying heat to the garment using an iron or tumble dryer.

For best results, allow the garment to "line dry" prior to applying heat and use the ironing method. Do not exceed 160°C and avoid ironing the logos.

Washing Care

Regular laundry detergents should be avoided as they can damage the water repellent function. We recommend rinsing AVLARE® garments with fresh water after each use and washing occasionally using a pH neutral tech wash product designed for technical outwear. The recommended products are:

Additional waterproofing treatments following washing are not required - simply follow the instructions above to reactivate the water repellency.

Do Not Use With Sunscreen / Moisturisers

Oil-based products such as sunscreen, body moisturisers and lotions may damage the water repellent function of an AVLARE® garment. Do not apply to areas of the skin that will come in to contact with the garment.
