Is this the material that the 'TYR Tracer Light' and 'Tracer Rise' are made from?
It's called Nano-Tex and above is a demonstration of an attempt to stain the material with coffee. The liquid just beads up and refuses to saturate.
I saw a demo of the Tracer Light and 'Rise suits do the same thing. However, I let a pool of water remain on the material and came back 40-minutes later and the suit was still dry. I also remember words like nanotechnology being bantered about but I was to blown away by watching the water bounce around the suit like a mercury. It's my belief the Tracer may be made of this material.
