The Bionic Climate Membrane
When involved in sporting activity, while motor cycling or during outdoor activities, the individual is exposed to varying climatic conditions and levels of physical exertion. C_change™, the new membrane technology from Schoeller®, reacts to the different temperatures and activities. As soon as greater moisture is produced as a result of a higher prevailing temperature or greater body heat, the membrane structure opens and allows excess heat and water vapour to escape to the outside air. As soon as the body produces less heat energy, and consequently less moisture, the membrane structure contracts again. Body heat is then stored and protection from shivering and chilling built up.
Inspired by nature
C_change™ the new membrane technology from Schoeller® takes nature as its role model. Or more precisely, the effect which, for example, can be observed in pine cones which open and close in response to different weather conditions.
Reacts to changing temperatures and activities.
The C_change™ membrane reacts to different prevailing conditions. It takes into account not only the temperature but also humidity and body moisture.
Ensures a pleasant body climate
Due to the high level of breathability, combined with heat retention adapted to the particular situation, C_change™ ensures a consistently ideal body climate.
Wind and water proof
The C_change™ membrane is permanently wind and waterproof, ensuring protection no matter what the weather.
Offers a high level of breathability
The water vapour permeability of C_change™ adapts perfectly to the prevailing conditions.
C_change™ – further arguments that speak for themselves:
- The C_change™ membrane can be processed into membrane solutions ranging from non-elastic to highly-elastic.
- Tested in practice under extreme conditions.
- The C_change™ membrane conforms to the Bluesign® standard*.
