Archimedes by Lee Frangiamore

£ 29.00

Having stepped into his bath, Archimedes realised that the water rose in relation to the volume of that part of his body that had been submerged. At this point he shouted Eureka! Eureka! and leapt from his bath, before running naked through the streets of Syracuse. This allowed objects with irregular shapes could have their volume precisely measured. The word Eureka comes from the Greek heureka, which means ‘I found (it)’.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
