Activated Cooling – Dynamic temperature control for textiles

Many textile manufacturers focus on developing fabrics that cool the wearer during exercise, because thermal comfort is a key factor for athlete performance. However, the textile should be able to dynamically halt its cooling effect to avoid chilling the wearer.

This workshop gives an overview of available thermoregulation technologies, with a special focus on the activated cooling technology HeiQ Smart Temp. HeiQ Smart Temp, a revolutionary textile technology that complements the natural perspiration process, activates the cooling effect by rising body temperature and deactivates once cooling is complete.

A live demo with an infrared camera (FLIR) during the workshop impressively demonstrates HeiQ Smart Temp’s cooling performance.
