THERMO

 

Like a cup of warm cappuccino on a chilly afternoon, SENSIL® Heat premium Nylon 6.6 warms from within. This unique, environmentally responsible fiber is made with coffee charcoal repurposed from coffee bean shell residue. SENSIL® Heat has been verified to preserve body heat while absorbing and managing moisture and neutralizing odors*. 

The specially-crafted coffee charcoal and oxide additive integrated into the yarn absorb and capture body heat for an extended period of time.

Impeccable thermo-insulation
Added as an inside layer of fabric, SENSIL® Heat maintains the body’s natural warm temperature and keeps the wearer warm.
Odor-reducing properties already inherent in Nylon 6.6 are enhanced by the coffee charcoal, which absorbs and neutralizes odors effectively
Environmentally friendly: Coffee charcoal is created from coffee bean shell residue, a natural surplus.

Several tests were conducted in three global labs (TTRI – Taiwan, Centexbel – Belgium, and SGS – Switzerland) on dyed and non-dyed fabrics made of SENSIL® Heat and a reference fabric without the additive. The fabric of SENSIL® Heat showed an increase of l0°C (50° F) versus the reference fabric.
