ADJUSTOR YARN

Unique temperature regulation
State of the Art

Direct incorporation of meltable or volatile lipophilic additives (PCM, carboxylic acids, …) by means of encapsulated additives and fibers or fabric after-treatment, only!

Main disadvantages:

  • High demands on uniformity of capsules sizes,
  • Limitation of incorporated amount of capsules and
  • High damage of capsules during mechanical stress at textile fibers processing

Fibers are Natural

  • Main raw material is wood pulp from non-endangered trees.
  • Additive paraffin is refined plant oil, e. g. extracted oil from rape flowers

Paraffin as phase change material (PCM)
  • fiber is a PCM micro composite of latest generation with thermo-regulating features.
  • Functional improvement compared to classic PCM.
  • Paraffin is embedded in highly crystalline lyocell fibers forming many micro composite accumulators per unit of cellulose.
  • Hence, greater heat storage capacity can be achieved.
    •   up to 90 J/g for fiber 6.7 dtex
    •   up to 50 J/g for fiber 2.3 dtex
Natural temperature regulation with paraffin
  • Paraffin melts in a temperature range of 28 – 32°C.
  • Paraffin has the capability to latently accumulate energy when it is changing phase from solid to liquid.
  • The fibers absorb excessive heat, accumulate it and release it when needed.
  • When the ambient temperature increases, ADJUSTOR fibers accumulate the excessive heat. When the temperature drops, they release the accumulated heat.
Additional Features
  • Moisture absorption of cellulosic fiber results in optimal body climate
  • Excellent textile manufacturing and consistent colorability
  • Even with high PCM load surface remains smooth with reliable processing
  • Insensitivity to mechanical and chemical
  • stress allows washing of fibers and textiles
