Periodic Table

£ 29.00

You have the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev to thank for this piece of work, probably among the most aesthetically pleasing representation of a scientific exegesis: The Periodic Table.

It is amazing to think that when the first generation of stars were formed, the only element available was hydrogen (a very boring periodic table that would have been). Huge amounts of gravitational pressure acting on the stars fused the hydrogen, turning it into helium... so then there were 2 elements.

This process continued, forming heavier & heavier elements. The first 26 elements up to iron were formed via nucleosynthesis in the star cores, and some, due to their size would explode into a supernova, creating all elements heavier than iron.

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.
