A new DIN SPEC Standard to verify the Cooling Power of Performance Fabrics
The presentation will focus on test procedures and requirements for textile materials resp. performance apparel (esp. functional baselayers) worn at work, sports / outdoor activities having the purpose of cooling the wearer during high metabolic activities and/or high ambient temperatures. This physical / thermophysiological cooling is solely provided by most effective and long-lasting evaporation of sweat (evaporative heat loss).
