FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How well does LITRAX TWO Thermo bamboo insulate?
    Litrax L2 Thermo provides exceptional clothing insulation properties in terms of the standard textile thermal insulation unit (clo unit). Litrax L2 Thermo bamboo fibers can insulate from 0.8 to over 3.9 Clo, a unit of thermal insulation used for clothing. which can be projected in to a massive and unprecedented ~27.5°Celsius of raised temperature. The amount of insulation required to keep a resting person warm in a windless room at 21.1 °C is equal to 1 Clo.
     
  • How to test insulation?
    EN13537 and ASTM1518-1985 methods, or with a thermo camera (for coloured effects).
     
  • What does the Clo unit mean?
    The clo is a measure of thermal resistance in the textile industry. It measures the insulation provided by any layer of trapped air between skin and clothing and the insulation value of the clothing itself. 1 clo unit will maintain a sedentary man comfortable indefinitely in an environment of 21°C, 50% relative humidity, and 0.01 m/s air movement. Assuming no wind penetration and no body movements to pump air around, clothing insulation = 0.15 x weight of clothes in lbs. (i.e., 0.15 clo per lb of clothes). So 10 lbs. clothes = 1.5 clo. A thick business suit provides an average of approximately 1 clo of intrinsic insulation for the whole body. Common textiles such as shirts and pullovers display values between 0.5 - 1.1 clo while standard insulation values of bedding can be between 1.4 and 1.6 clo.
    Litrax L2 Thermo bamboo fibers insulate up to 3.2 Clo with fiber padding (filling of jackets, shoes) and could also be used for enhanced construction insulation.
