Measuring the Effects of Moisture Wicking Fabrics and Thermal Effusivity

Measuring the Effects of Moisture Wicking Fabrics and Thermal Effusivity

Overview

In this webinar featuring Moisture Wicking Fabrics, we discuss our findings on the effects of moisture wicking fabrics and cool feel performance wear using the Thermal Effusivity Meter (TPS-EFF). Our focus is determining if the TPS-EFF can assist in selecting cool feel materials to be used in athletic wear with varying moisture levels.
