Jul '10
Recently the product launch of 'WinCool' fiber which has been manufactured in Taiwan was held at the cross-strait science and technology incubator in Shishi city.

It is reported that the fabrics made from this fiber carries advantages like keeping the wearer cool and comfortable and is energy-saving.

The concept of "Energy-saving shirt" came from the "Cool Business Affairs” campaign launched by the Japanese government in 2005. It called on businessmen, to not wear tie and suits in summer, so that high cooling does not need to be maintained in air-conditioned offices and in the process, also reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

The idea behind 'WinCool cool' fiber is to achieve energy-saving and has features like cool fiber with features of high-dispelling heat, low-specific heat and high- moisture absorption.

According to reports, after numerous tests, it has been proven that clothing products made from the WinCool products, keeps the body temperature of people who are exercising down by around 1.5° centigrade, when compared with, when they wear normal clothing.

This means that wearing the "energy-saving shirt" could increase air temperature by 1-2° centigrade without reducing comfort to human body, which can in turn save electricity consumption by 6 -10 percent and effectively reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

It is reported that WinCool fiber, when blended with other fibres like tencel, wool, cotton, polyester, acrylic and other materials, the blended products, embody the advantages of cool fibers.

The WinCool fibre can be mainly used in manufacturing of products like, shirts, innerwear, sports clothing, bedding and beauty products such as masks, wipes and other products, which means the fibre has a very high potential.
