Thermal Regulating Fiber/Fabric


NAMI has developed a nano-encapsulated phase change material (Nano-PCM) for the application in thermal regulating textile.

  • Thermal Regulating Fiber/Fabric 0
  • Thermal Regulating Fiber/Fabric 1
Commercialisation opportunities
Non-exclusive licensing
Problem addressed

The textile products with Nano-PCM can provide a regulating function upon the change of environmental conditions, offering an effective buffer against ambient temperature fluctuations.

  • Embedded nano-PCM interacts continuously with the microclimate of the surrounding, absorbing and releasing thermal energy to balance the temperature, eventually improves thermal comfort of human bodies.
Key impact
  • Long thermal regulation effect, outperforming other products with micro-PCMs
  • Fast response
  • Soft touch feel, good mechanical strength and long lifetime
  • Thermal regulated products
  • Apparel
  • Bedding
  • Footwear
