Soak up the sun with solar+ to stay warm in winters

Dec '12
The brand new solar + textile technology keeps the wearer pleasantly warm even at low temperatures. As textiles finished with solar+ intensively absorb the rays of the sun, no matter what their color, the clothes are tangibly warmed.

For the first time, at the Winter ISPO 2013, Lasse Kjus is presenting Ice star ski jackets in a Schoeller functional fabric with solar+. Pioneering work has also been done by Amundsen Sports in its South Pole Expedition, exposing the technology to the true forces of nature.

The principle is a simple one and is inspired by nature. It is based on the sun’s heat rays. On sunny days, reptiles, for example, come out of their hiding places and crawl onto rocks to soak up the sun. Their skin absorbs the heat rays, stimulating their metabolism and making them more active.

Increased heat absorption solar+ functions in a similar way. Textiles equipped with solar+ intensively absorb the heat rays. Even thin fabrics can keep the wearer pleasantly warm.

This leads to a higher degree of comfort and performance. Solar+ effectively uses the natural power of the sun, therefore keeping the wearer tangibly warmer, and supports the feeling of wellbeing, particularly at low temperatures.  Furthermore, solar+ keeps textiles from losing heat.

Starting right now, Schoeller Textil is presenting the new solar+ technology (patent pending) on various fabrics. Additionally, solar+ is also available at the licencing level from Schoeller Technologies. All solar+ textiles are breathable and wash resistant and solar+ can be particularly successfully applied to light-colored textiles.

Of course the solar+ finish also complies with the bluesign standard, the most stringent ecological standard for textiles.
