Kufner: THS-Technology saves up to 40 percent on energy and XShield products protect against data theft
For over a decade Kufner has also directed its engineering competence towards developing and producing high-quality technical fabrics. Due to the low energy consumption (30-40 % compared to standard products) and the consistent heat distribution THS heating technology is a very interesting solution for various applications.
This technology has proven itself particular effective when used in apparel, above all in work wear and functional garments geared to sports and work related outdoor activities. An interesting application of the heating textiles are heated church pews, such as already realised at St.-Veits-Cathedral in Prague, as well as heated artificial turf in extensive sports stadiums, since the heating textiles are produced on rolls. The use in automotive seating is already in a stage of development and especially interesting seen the USP of THS technology: the extraordinary low energy consumption.
Kufner’s THS is a light material with a textile hand feel and scores with an ultra-fast heating up to the required temperature as well as an extraordinary even heat distribution. Thus, the new THS technology ensures an absolute safety in function: the defect of one heating wire does not affect the heating system that remains perfectly heated.
All THS products are made to measure to the customer’s requirements - according to the respective application various volt ranges and temperatures are feasible. They will be produced with a wide range of possible carrier materials and there are multiple ways to apply THS: from sewn-in, moulded, foam laminated, stitched, quilted to laminated or glued.
XShield products protect against data theft from RFID cards
Kufner’s blend of textile expertise and engineering competence leads to ever more exciting new products and applications. Another highlight at Techtextil - the product line XShield, a solution to protect from electro-magnetic radiation and unauthorized access to RFID data and may be applied to various market segments: from fashion and leisure wear, home textiles, automotive, military, sports, medical to construction and electronics industries.
