THERMAL WORK CLOTHING
WHAT IS THERMAL CLOTHING?
Thermal work clothing keeps the body at the right temperature while moisture (sweat) is removed. It keeps you warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Thermal clothing maintains existing body heat well, because a layer of air is kept between your skin and the thermal underlayer. Thicker thermal underwear which fits loosely around the body is better at retaining air and, consequently, heat. Thinner thermal underwear which fits the body tightly is better at removing sweat. The right thermal underwear depends on the weather and what you are going to do..
Tricorp’s thermal work clothing is therefore:
WHAT IS TRICORP THERMAL CLOTHING MADE FROM?
Tricorp’s thermal work clothing is made from bamboo. Bamboo has an open structure, which means it can remove sweat four times faster than traditional cotton. Not only does it therefore offer more cooling in the summer, it also retains more heat in the winter. Bamboo, an allergy-free material, is an excellent alternative for people with sensitive skin. Another advantage is its structure which minimises maintenance.
ANTIBACTERIAL THERMAL CLOTHING
An additional advantage of using bamboo as a material is its antibacterial properties, which prevent sweat odors. Given the function and weather conditions in which the clothing is often worn, these anti-sweat properties are essential. Unlike nano-silver which is also used to combat sweat odors, bamboo is a sustainable material, largely natural, and safe.
WHEN SHOULD THERMAL CLOTHING BE WORN?
In hot conditions; if you work in a hot environment and sweat a lot as a result, the body gets wet
and cools down faster, which can sometimes be dangerous. Thermal clothing removes this
perspiration thanks to its breathability. However, it is important to wear ventilated clothing over
your thermal clothes. Cotton, for example, does not breath.
In cold conditions: when working in a cold environment but moving a lot, the heat generated by the body is retained in special fibres. This is also called insulation. Tricorp advises all those who Tricorp’s thermal work clothing is layer A. The insulating intermediate layer and the weather protection layer are layers B and C. Those who wear our thermal clothing in their daily work include construction workers, postmen, postwomen, and road workers.
