Cooling Fabrics – Tested, Approved, Working!
The talk will focus on the science behind thermophysiological cooling and the methods to quantify the evaporative cooling power of performance fabrics including WATson, Hohenstein’s proprietary technology that accurately measures a fabric’s claimed evaporative heat loss, i.e., cooling power. This test system can replicate a wide variety of custom climates and set-ups while measuring the textile’s ability to process moisture (sweat) and support the evaporative heat loss. The result is a comprehensive dataset that reliably measures how products will perform once consumers wear them in real life.
