There are two main types of popular heating fabrics on the market, far-infrared heating fabrics and moisture-absorbing heating fabrics. So which one is better? Let’s take a look at the differences between these two fabrics.
Far infrared Heating is also called long-wave infrared ray, which is beneficial for the far-infrared ray emitted by the hot object source to irradiate the heated object, and then make the internal molecules and atoms resonate to generate heat energy to achieve the purpose of heating. There are many things in nature that can emit long-wave infrared rays. Graphite, which is now called graphene, as well as tourmaline, tourmaline, magnet and other ores can emit long-wave infrared rays. The above ores are ground into nanometers and added to the fiber. Inside, if it passes the test standard, it can be called far-infrared heating fabric. The far-infrared radiation temperature rise value is 1.4°, which can improve microcirculation, improve micro-blood flow status, and accelerate blood flow speed, which has a certain effect on physical health.
Moisture-absorbing and heating fabric is a new material that warms the body by changing from gas to liquid and releasing heat (opposite to alcohol), with a maximum heat generation of 10°. When the human body is at rest, 600cc of gaseous sweat evaporates every day, and the gaseous state enters the molecules of the fiber. The gaseous state changes to a liquid and adsorbs to the fiber. When this gas changes to a liquid, heat is released (the opposite principle of alcohol). The hygroscopic and heat-generating fiber absorbs moisture to a saturated state and stops releasing heat. After the water is released, it is absorbed again, so heat can be generated repeatedly. Hygroscopic conversion – exothermic release – hygroscopic conversion – exothermic release, repeated heating and moisturizing. The standard maximum heat generation of moisture-absorbing and heating underwear is ≥4° and the average temperature rise value in 30 minutes is ≥3°.
Which heating fabric is better? From the perspective of rising temperature, moisture absorption and heating increase the temperature higher. From the perspective of health care effects, far infrared has a better effect on improving the body’s microcirculation. It depends on the individual needs of the user.
