How does it work?
Thermic® QuickDry fabric absorbs excess heat and slows the rate at which the skin temperature rises and the body enters the heat-stress zone (zone I - point 2). The Reference fabric – which does not contain any thermal buffer – causes the skin temperature to rise faster, reaching the heat-stress zone sooner.
As a consequence of the rise in temperature, the body starts to sweat. Thermic® QuickDry has a fast absorption and quick dry technology that accelerates the diffusion and evaporation of sweat, leading to a rapid drop of temperature. On reaching a lower temperature sooner, the body stops perspiring earlier with Thermic® QuickDry fabric (point 3) compared with the Reference fabric (point 4).
The Reference fabric, which does not enhance the diffusion and evaporation of sweat, accumulates more moisture accumulation inside the textile leading to a wet sensation: discomfort!
The thermal storage effect of Thermic® QuickDry is also active when the temperature falls as the PCM releases stored energy, slowing the rate of cooling within the comfort zone (point 5) and preventing the body from entering the cold-stress zone (zone II). The Reference fabric, without a buffer effect, causes the skin to cool faster and the accumulated sweat in the fabric causes further discomfort.
Thermic® QuickDry regulates skin temperature in the comfort zone (point 6), providing a feeling of well-being.
