HeiQ launches dynamic thermoregulation technology that is designed to enable both instant cool and long lasting cooling on fabric activated by our own body heat

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2018-07-25 12:18:00 – Zurich

HeiQ’s activated cooling technology featured at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (ORSM) Trend + Design Center and at the Functional Fabric Fair. HeiQ’s long-term brand partners using HeiQ Smart Temp in their products include Burton, Champion, DICK’S SecondSkin and Kjus.

Combined cooling mechanisms - Based on the new possibility of combined cooling mechanisms, a suite of new products will be added to the HeiQ Smart Temp product family, where HeiQ Adaptive AC-03 and -06 belong. All of them share the dynamic temperature control feature and provide either instant cool, long-lasting cooling or both effects to the wearer.

The two cooling actions work independent of each other, meaning that you can choose to add one or both effects depending on each fabric type and intended usage of the final product, to achieve the optimal cooling effect.

The manufacturer elaborates, the launch of HeiQ Adaptive AC-06 disrupts the market again as it, apart from the long-lasting dynamic cooling effect of vaporizing action, confers an instant cool sensation via a melting action when body heat rises, independent from moisture, increasing cooling efficiency by delaying the build-up of body heat and sweat.

Performance data suggests that evaporative cooling remains the most efficient cooling action as it most closely simulates the skins’ natural sweat thermal regulating system. However, static evaporation that does not adjust according to changing body temperature may lead to discomfort as a wearer gets a chill when the level of activity lowers, but the cooling continues unconditionally.

Dynamic thermal regulation technology -HeiQ’s dynamic thermal regulation technology – to-date applied on hundreds of millions of garments of over 50 major brands worldwide, HeiQ Adaptive AC-03 – was an innovation in dynamic cooling for that cooling is activated only when the body is hot and sweaty and deactivated once the wearer’s body heat or the surrounding temperature drops.

Based on the mechanism of the recently unveiled, patent-pending instant cooling hydro functional polymer, the Swiss textile innovator HeiQ has announced that a suite of new products will be added to the HeiQ Smart Temp product family for a full range of activated cooling technology, customizable for each fabric type and intended cooling performance.

HeiQ recently launched its dynamic thermoregulation technology that is designed to enable both instant cool and long-lasting cooling on fabric activated by our own body heat. While 65% of activewear shoppers seek thermal regulation in clothing, activewear brands may wrestle with which type of cooling solution suits the designated fabric and intended use of the final product.
