BeHot, a new product partnership between Sitip and Asahi Kasei’s Roica premium stretch, is a unique heat generating technology innovation that is currently being showcased at the ISPO Munich trade fair. The fabric represents a special combination of a highly refined type of knitted construction combined with unique Roica premium stretch yarn function.

Thanks to the special patented system, the fabric action of stretch and recovery is able to produce ‘at least a 1 degree temperature’ increase that is then stored to support the wearer both during and post exercise.

BeHot is a thermo regulating fabric system and generates at least one-degree temperature increase because of the physical process of elongation, thus reducing entropy. Its heat generation technology reduces heat loss and maintains a constant body temperature during and after exercise.

BeHot’s heat generation varies according to the type of materials used, but in every blend and mix, the fabric always minimises heat loss, while storing energy warmth during exercise without loss. This fabric system is perfect for many applications such as activewear, outdoor/climbing wear, shapewear/innerwear, hosiery and cycling.

Sitip and Asahi Kasei have been able to prove the real power of the BeHot heat generating fabric ranges by calibrating them in laboratory tests that consist placing the BeHot fabric on the left of a dynamometer and a regular fabric on the right, and then observing the respective temperatures on a thermograph after repeated fabric elongations to 50 per cent.

At the end of the test, only the BeHot technology fabric showed a substantial difference on the thermograph. Also, during the phase of repeated elongation for one minute, only the BeHot fabric showed temperature increases, proving the fabric's potential for generating and maintaining warmth.

BeHot fabrics come in multiple types such as Blizzard BeHot, first and second layer fabric for plain solid bike winter pants, climbing, running, Blizzard PLX BeHot, first and second layer fabric in white for sublimation for running and bike winter pants and climbing and mountaineering, and Instinct PLX BeHot GZ, a base layer for technical underwear, fitness and warm ups.

Sitip is a leading Italian textile company specialised in high-tech and function-rich innovations for sport, technical underwear, shapewear, beachwear, footwear components, protective helmets, and in particular Velcro-receptive fabrics for mechanical fastening systems and a number of innovative technical fabrics for other industrial end-uses.

Sitip had recently launched 16 unique trade brands, each one specialised in highly advanced innovation solutions designed to fit both market and the discerning needs of the contemporary consumer. (KD)
