The Odorfil technology is a revolutionary fabric able to completely eliminate the bacteria that cause bad odor, as well as considerably reducing itching, bacteria and fungi thanks to its antibacterial power.

The decrease on thickness of fabrics although it diminishes in to 15% the capacity of absorption, provides greater lightness and comfort keeping the same impermeability to avoid the sweat stains.
In brief, Sutran 2.0 are innovative fabrics with the same Sutran Original quality.

Use and maintenance?
The system should be a daily washing in the washing machine, taking into account the color and any conventional clothing garment.
