Measuring the Effects of Moisture Wicking Fabrics and Thermal Effusivity​


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. For measuring the warm feel or cool touch of materials: TPS-EFF.
