In camouflage prints the company presents the high Duracam technology, which cannot be seen using infrared binoculars used in nighttime operations, thereby confusing the enemy´s vision. The technology is not used on a large scale in Brazil. The Duracam technology was developed using the renowned fabric Durapro, produced using 6.6 high tensile polyamide making it highly resistant to scrapes and tears, CORDURA®, which is the INVISTA™ registered trademark.
Another innovative product is geared toward combat pilots. The launch of the fabric Vulcan X3, which contains aramid inherent fiber with heat risk protection arising from sudden fires, is the first flame retardant fabric with meta aramid produced in Brazil. Protection is guaranteed throughout the useful life of the garment, differing from other technologies where the finishing could wear off with each successive washing.
Another high technology finishing line is Tech+, which offers solutions for repelling liquids, prevents absorption of oil and petroleum byproducts and can be mosquito repellant. The visitor to the Santista stand will be able to participate in hands on experiences which show how the fabric works in practice.
SIMULATION AND PRESENTATION
Santista has prepared a special project to entertain the public at the LAAD. Every day of the fair a group of five men wearing guerrilla warfare uniforms and bearing arms will mingle among the corridors of the Riocenter simulating a search for the enemy. Another attraction is that during the fair from noon to 1:00 p.m. visitors can attend the presentation by Jonathan D. Long, Lieutenant Coronel who fought in missions in Iraq and Afghanistan and spent 18 years with the US Department of Defense. The combatant will speak about the importance of camouflage uniforms in operations and how technology hás contributed to provide greater mobility and security when going into action.
