HSX - Sintex is a synthetic silk of artificial origin.
It is an imitation of natural HSE - Tempesta silk, to which it is close for its silky softness and light reaction properties.
Very light, but heavier than the unrivaled HSE - Tempesta silk, it has some non-negligible advantages.
The 330 cm width, compared to the 140 cm of silk, is an aesthetic and economic advantage in the realization of backdrops.
The polyester composition also makes it much more resistant than natural silks and cheaper.
It is heavier and stronger than the similar HSP - Tempesta Poly.
