TEMRES® family We are planning on expanding the TEMRES® series and applying
and bringing the benefits of this technology to other applications, keeping our users hands dry.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The concept in TEMRES® technology comes from differences in physical properties of liquid water and water vapour. Physical properties of water in liquid state, such as cohesion
and lower molecular energy, means that water droplets
typically range in size between 100 µm to 3,000 µm. On the other hand, the higher energy of water molecules in
vapour means they are excited and moving freely. The size
of water molecule is about 0.0003 µm. Our engineers used this significant size difference to create two main membranes
in the glove that enable the TEMRES® effect: one for its
breathability and one for water resistance.
Concretely, one membrane is made from porous foamed
polyurethane, helping moisture come out easily and allowing
the hand to dry promptly. The other one is the outermost
layer made from hydrophilic polymer, which is permeable to
moisture but not to water. The difference in concentration
of water molecules and temperature leads to water vapour
transfer from inside the glove to outside. This is the essential
mechanism applied to TEMRES® gloves. The breathability
allows hands to stay dry. At the same time its waterproof
property still protects the hands from water and liquids.
