TENCEL™ the fabric of the future
The BSensible® POLARIS surface is made from natural TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre (with excellent moisture control), SMARTCEL™ sensitive (contributes to the acceleration of skin cell regeneration and has important antibacterial properties) and HDPE (technology based on high thermal conductivity and heat dissipation) fibres.
Currently, so-called cooling fabrics are based on PCM (Phase Change Material ) technology. In simple terms, when a material changes its phase, for example from solid to liquid, it absorbs energy and heat, giving a cooling sensation.
Using this system, as shown by the comparison, the cooling effect lasts for less time than with the BSensible® POLARIS range.
BSensible® POLARIS has a cooling effect, owing to its technology based on thermal conductivity and heat dissipation. It is combined with the excellent moisture control of TENCEL™ Lyocell. An obvious example is metal: if you put our hand on a metallic chair leg you immediately experience a cooling sensation because metal is a conductor (it absorbs the heat from your hand, transports it and dissipates it).
TENCEL™ is the Lyocell fibre made exclusively by LENZING AG. The fibres are naturally soft to the touch and offer comfort for sensitive skin.
TENCEL™ Lyocell is made from wood obtained from certified and controlled sources. The fibre production methods are extremely eco-friendly owing to the closed production system: a spinning process using organic solvents in which the water used is recycled and the percentage of reused solvents exceeds 99%.
