FACTORS DETERMINING THERMAL COMFORT

Personal factors Air temperature Air movement / velocity Relative humidity Insulative clothing Activity levels

THERMAL INTERACTION BETWEEN BODY AND CLOTHING

Clothing is the second skin to the human being. Heat balance is important for good comfort.

FABRIC PROPERTIES FOR THERMAL COMFORT

Insulation Wind proofing Moisture vapors permeability Water proofing

CLOTHING INSULATION

Clothing layers can prevent heat loss and possibly lead to overheating. Type of material in the clothing may decrease the insulating ability.

WIND PROOFING

Comfort temperature for unclothed body is lower than skin temperature.

MOISTURE VAPOUR PERMEABILITY

When body losses heat, temperature starts to rise. Heat the body by evaporating the moisture from the skin.

WATER PROOFING

Clothing system should dry when cold season. Comfort is achieved through Nano technology and micro encapsulation technic.

NANOTECHNOLOGY IN TEXTILES FOR IMPROVING COMPORT
Incorporating nano sized entities or creating nano sized entities. Nano -a billionth of a meter.
