Comparative Tests of Thermo Textile

In order to evaluate usefulness of application of functional textiles for producing children clothes, the experiment was carried out where these textiles were compared with clothing of other fibre materials, establishing what kind of clothing makes children sweat faster during the physical activities, what kind of clothing absorbs the body wetness, as well as what clothing can give the wetness in the environment. As a result of tests three underwear sets were compared made of cotton, merino and functional textile (composing of 34% PP, 60.2% PES, 5.8% EL). During the experiment thermistors and one wetness sensor attached to the child’s skin in different places on the body register the beginning of sweating and fluctuations of body temperature. Summarizing the obtained data, it concludes that there is no great difference in fluctuations of skin temperature in different clothes, however, percentage amount of the body wetness differs substantially in comparison with the clothing mass which is the most in the merino clothing – 0,7%, in its turn, the least in clothing where the ingredients are polypropylene, polystyrene and elastane fibre materials that compose 0,04%. From this clothing also the body wetness vaporises in the shortest time (40 min), in its turn, this process is performed for the longest time in merino clothing (75 min). Results of the experiment present the usefulness of functional textile, thereby when choosing such kind of underwear and appropriate upper cloth, it is possible to maximally ensure the possible fluctuations of the body temperature, providing a child with a possibility to move freely and feel comfortable in different climate conditions.
