Based on the mechanism of the recently unveiled, patent-pending instant cooling hydro functional polymer, the supplier of finishing technology, HeiQ Materials AG, Zurich/Switzerland, has announced that a series of new products will be added to the HeiQ Smart Temp product family. This will provide a full range of activated cooling technology, customizable for each fabric type and intended cooling performance.
HeiQ’s first dynamic thermal regulation, HeiQ Adaptive AC-03, was an innovation in dynamic cooling as cooling is activated only when the body is hot and sweaty and deactivated once the wearer’s body heat or the surrounding temperature drops. The new HeiQ Adaptive AC-06, apart from the long-lasting dynamic cooling effect of vaporizing action, confers an instant cool sensation through a melting action when body heat rises, independent from moisture (i.e. before the first sign of sweat), increasing cooling efficiency by delaying the build-up of body heat and sweat.
Based on the new possibility of combined cooling mechanisms, a series 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 2 cooling actions work independently of each other, meaning that one or both effects can be added depending on each fabric type and intended usage of the final product.
