Hydroweave® can be used for a wide range of applications.
These studies detail various tests that have been performed
Wear and Use Testing
AquaTex commissioned Auburn University to study the
cooling properties of Hydroweave®. The research
project evaluated how long Hydroweave® remains active
and how effectively it cools the wearer. Auburn University
is a member of the National Textile Center and conducts
performance testing on garments and their effects on
the wearer under various simulated work and stress conditions.
long does it perform?
Hydroweave®'s active evaporative cooling has been shown
to be effective for up to 8 hours. The duration of cooling
performance is application dependent and will vary with
temperature, wind and humidity... Read
effective is Hydroweave® when used under a barrier suit?
Used in a passive 'heat-sink' mode, Hydroweave® has
been proven to effectively reduce heat, maintain lower
core body temperature and increase worker productivity
for up to 16.4%.... Read
Intertek Testing Services has provided an array of
testing on the flame resistant qualities of Hydroweave®
FR. In addition, protective clothing expert Jeff Stull
