HeiQ: Activated cooling for sports enthusiasts
The Swiss textile innovator HeiQ launches an upgraded version of its dynamic cooling technology HeiQ Smart Temp. Based on an instant cooling hydro functional polymer, this patent pending technology provides activated cooling to the wearer for enhanced performance and thermal comfort. Inhouse thermoregulation performance measurements of a treated fabric revealed a 1.5°C to 2.5°C (2.7°F to 4.5°F) cooler skin temperature compared to an untreated fabric. During the Performance Days Munich from April 18-19, 2018, the upgraded HeiQ Smart Temp technology was demonstrated on high-tech sports fabrics by the companies Pontetorto and Tessitura Taiana Virgilio.
