Now, Melchior Textil has come up with a range of new, heat-regulating fabrics, suitable for the textile rental market, that are designed to adapt to changing temperatures.
The fabric is available in a number of different weights and owes its unique functionality to smartcel clima fibre. This textile absorbs excess heat and releases it as the situation demands, providing temperature regulation in every situation. In our daily work and leisure activities we are often subjected to rapidly changing climatic environments. Travelling by car to visit clients, we are constantly alternating between indoors and outdoors, from warm to cold conditions.
These sudden, often extreme transitions can have a negative impact on our personal well-being. Melchior’s new collection of innovative, thermo-regulating smartcel fabrics is the perfect solution to this problem, balancing out the effect of temperature changes caused by fluctuations in ambient temperature or physical exertion.
The new product range is based on the smartcel clima fibre with heat-absorbing and distribution properties. Natural paraffin wax, incorporated directly into the fibre, absorbs body or ambient heat. On moving from a warm to a cooler environment, the stored thermal energy is released from the heat reservoir in the fibres. The temperature at which the changeover takes place can be calibrated precisely. If the surrounding temperature rises above the fixed level, the fabric stores the excess heat. As soon as the temperature falls, the energy is released again. In a homogeneous blend of cotton and polyester, the fabrics provide constant temperature conditions – all day, all year round.
